    Suzuki Swift 1.6 sport 2009 - Samsung Galaxy 7" Tab build

    Wel as some people will know my older time consuming never ending project the cameleon opel corsa c i now have a Suzuki Swift 1.6 Sport from 2009.
    Missed my Carpc allot but i just did not wanted the hassle anymore with the cables and to hide a computer somewere.
    So i took the step and bought a Samsung galaxy tab.

    I have used Android on my htc phone for a while and it was pretty fast , almost didnt crash.
    has/does everything i want except AV-in.

    So i first planned to make a motorized dash panel like some guys on youtube have made to put there ipad in.
    Ordered some parts even the actuator but when the tablet arrived (bargain btw with lots of extra's) i kept it on my double din dash panel.
    and the first thoughts were, hmm lets see , take this part out and the top part maybe it fits

    And now its allready done, i slide it in to the top first then a little bit pushing and slide it down to lock and done
    this took me 15 minutes to fix ahha, thats something else compared to my old fiberglass dashbord that took me allmost a year to finish.





    I also need to rebuild the audio system but as it looks like i am not going to put both 12" subs in the rear booth because of the weight and i would like to try to keep some more space this time in my car
    lets see how that goes haha





    Here some pics from the double din dash piece




    Also made a little opening on the right for the power connecter and bought on ebay a cheap cable with usb for the pwer and AV/Audio out cinch for a few dollars.
    but the plan is to stream the audio by the bluetooth a2dp mode , no idea how it sounds yet










    Also bought a cheap 13 dollar ODB2 reader for the nice software called Torque thats for android.



    This is just for fun for me, i was hoping i had a transmission oiltemp sensor and oil temp sensor but i gues not,
    the meters arent working when i connect the odb2.


    it is ust for show but seems to work pretty good
    here a movie




    As for the software, i was hoping Centrafuse would come with there's but as i understood correct it won't.
    The "problem" i have is the sleeping mode that the screen turns black, i have to press the power button once then the screen lights up again.
    i can use the slider to unlock and its all good.

    Found software called Carhome, this app does keep the screen on and not turn black.
    you have empty icons that you can link to software that you want to use in your car.
    i have for example an audio player/sygic navigation and some others.

    When i go to the audio player its all ok if i forget to switch back to car home and leave the mp3 player screen for a few sec it goes to lock again.
    have to find a solution for this , maybe i do not explain it clear enough,.

    So next updates will be me building the audio again in the car,
    adding some sound damping material like the old car.
    and find a ncie place for my new not yet ordered alpine head unit

    You dont have to explain, I understand. I work a lot too, and as you can see, im hitting year number 4 on my install, lol. I wanted a very unique system and tablets currently do not do it for me yet.

    making a new subwoofer enclosure, and only 1 sub this time but that would be enough.



























    also made some speaker rings from HDPE





    and my order was deliverd


    Alpine CDA-117Ri
    KCE 400Bt
    PXA-100h




    ook de dempingsmatten binnen gekregen


    flink aan het plakken geslagen








    ringen klaar gemaakt voor de speakers


    beetje een rommel hokje maar hier gebeurd het






    spot for the filters


    and a set of headlights to make something nice from






















    and finally this weekend a little sound test if the subwoofer was working ok in his new housing.



    Will make more pics and a good video how and what with the tablet in the dashbord,
    and A2DP bluetooth streaming is not as i'd expected.
    The audio quality is not great if you ask me, if you compare the same mp3 file from usb stick and switch over to streaming from phone you hear a difference.
    Kinda annoys me.

    Also used a steering wheel adapter kit so i can control the volume from my steer
