    HI! Nice Job! I'm waiting for Google to release the Nexus 7 here in Europe to start my project. I love the magnets holding the tab..are they strong enough to keep it in place flawlessly?

    I like the work you've done with your Nexus 7 install. Very clever and well executed! I am currently in the process of doing the same thing with my Nexus 7 and 2012 Nissan Pathfinder, and will be sharing those project details soon.

    I wanted to offer some feedback on bluetooth audio. I purchased a TuneLink Auto BT adapter a few weeks ago, and it works very well for my situation. I have it installed in the cigarette lighter inside my console, with a 3.5mm cable running to the AUX input on my factory stereo. The TuneLink also has a USB port that can deliver sufficient power to charge iDevices and my tablet. I like the TuneLink because it will auto-resume my music when I am making short trips. I wrote a review of my initial experience with the TuneLink on my blog, http://www.greatertek.com/blog/2012/...audio-adapter/ . I looked at the BT adapter by Blackberry, and was very close to purchasing it. In the end, I went with the TuneLink and have been pleased with its performance.

    When I get tasker working properly, I will check back and see if I can "share" the profile. They also have several shared templates on the developer's website that I plan on using as a starting point.

    Thanks for sharing your project!

    Thanks for your review Gr8rt3k! Did you experienced delays in audio from video playback (out of sync)?

    I am guessing this question is for when you are parked in the driveway and want to watch Netflix, right? I have only tested audio thus far, but will be sure to test the included copy of Transformers that came with my Nexus and report back here.

    I am trying to find if bluetooth transmission generate some noticeable delay in audio playback, and sure it could be noticed better with some type of video. Of course I am not thinking of watching movies while driving

    No delay at all. And just for the record I just you tube to listen to some songs, remixes and playlists while driving. I just don't watch it. It opens up a lot of possibilities.

    Thanks for the kind words. I have some more questions for you about your blue tooth receiver.

    When it's in the car is it always getting power or do you have it wired to the +12 volts with ignition on?

    When it has power to it but the tablet is not in the car or the tablet turned off for an extended period of time does the blue tooth receiver shut off? and if so what steps do you have to take to get it to reconnect to your tablet?

    thanks djsun!
    I am thinking of an installation with a bluetooth audio receiver connected to switched +12v (and not battery powered like your model) so I can use tasker to 'sense' when that bluetooth device will came up and wake up the tab. In this way I can connect the tab to the permanent +12v and have it always online (but with music paused and screen off when bluetooth receiver is off).

    Cool, Let me know how that works out.


    As-is, mine will turn off after awhile of no connection to my tablet and I have to push the button to turn it back on. Even when I have power to it constantly, so I'm looking for one that will turn on when power is applied to it or stay on as long as there is power applied to it.
