    I am not one to type a bunch of stuff out, so I will let the pictures do what I am to lazy to do.

    I do have the bluetooth OBDII and the Torque app installed as well.
    No easy spot to install my CD player so it is installed actually behind the tablet. There is a IR blaster that it hooked up and mounted low for my CD remote so I can change inputs.
    If anyone has any ideas where I could install my CD player. Feel free to let me know.

    I saw a thread on here for using a wall paper for a main screen. I loved the idea, followed the steps and ran-away with it. I just used the lines that they had already done and flipped them vertically. The icons used on the screen goes credit to another place (Metrostation, Deviantart).

    God, that is a terrible pic of the inverter. Sorry for the poor camera shot, the one with all the lines going through.

    I found a cheap inverter at a local store that costed me about 40 bucks. I removed my cigarette lighter and hooked up my inverter to the posi and neg wires that were running to the lighter. I did pull a dumb dumb move. When I was clipping the wires when the car was off, I thought, well this should be easy.. and snip. Done! Hooked up everything.. WTF no power?! Well, this is crap. Thinking over and over, and talking out loud, I finally had realized I blew my fuse even when the car was off. Oops, lesson learned. (A cheap lesson though :P)

    So, any more thoughts and ideas?


    For ****s and grins, I also attached what my car looks like on the inside. I did install the red LED's too. My son loves them.

    Looks good! I take it that the tablet is fixed and not easily removed. You have the glow in the car just right, nice job SNO

    Tablet takes about 3 minutes to remove. Fairly easy to remove. And thank you sir!

    What tablet are you using?
    Does it have radio or internet radio only?

    Did you connect it through your car speakers?

    I did similar install in my Suzuki Grand Vitara a while ago, works good

    Well, none of the name brands. lol. I wanted to find a tablet that didn't have ANY logo on the front so i don't have to look at it. I am using the HiSense Pro. For a $150 bucks with a Tegra Quad core processor, can't go wrong. It does have a newer Deck behind the tablet with 2 aux inputs. So radio and internet radio. Yes it does run through my speakers.

    I actually looked at your install multiple times before I did mine. lol. I googled Suzuki Tablet install and came across yours before. :P

    I uninstalled Car Home Ultra. It was okay. I prefer actually making the custom wallpaper and setting transparent widgets to launch apps. You can customize the **** out of it. Which i love.

    Thats a good idea, I'm using the stock Android launcher ATM with widgets, I might try your idea though.

    very nice job. I've had some form of my installation for months now and it seems like I'm contantly working on it. I didn't know it they invisible widets that could be set to a wallpaper, kind of like a jpg/html link map in a photo.
