    I also did not experience any audio delay with my very scientific testing (looking at lips and listening to synced dialog). I tested using Spotify, TuneIn, Pandora, Slacker, YouTube and Crackle. All worked perfectly.

    The TuneLink is connected to a switched 12V outlet in the center console. When the car is powered on (running or ACC), the TuneLink is active and can provide power to the Nexus 7 via MicroUSB cable. I like the TuneLink because it features an auto-reconnect option that will re-establish a connection with previously paired devices that are in-range. The TuneLink also features an auto-resume option, which will resume playback of the current playlist/station/song/etc from your default media player (Spotify, in my case). As long as Spotify is running on my device, auto-resume works very well.

    When I finish the installation of my Nexus 7 in my 2012 Pathfinder, I will try using Tasker to auto-start Bluetooth and Spotify upon detecting power, and then put the tablet in airplane mode when power is disconnected. Fortunately, the method I'm using to mount my tablet allows for very easy removal, which means I can take it inside and charge it there overnight if needed. Honestly, I LOVE this tablet! I originally planned on permanently installing it in place of the factory 7" touchscreen, but after watching this video , I decided on a different path. I'm about 70% complete right now, and will be posting my pictures and story here when done.

    Thanks for your scientific testing Gr8rt3k Perhaps my cheap BT receiver will not be as good as yours, but in that case I'll check some other receivers. After all, the one I'm waiting for costs me less than 10 bucks!

    I am not sure but I think auto reconnect is handled by android as well. So for auto resume, thinking at BT receiver as a BT headset: I use Poweramp, and you can configure start\stop playback based on connection/disconnection of headset.. don't know if it will work even with BT audio transmission.

    However, Tasker will come in help: I will configure it to: "when BT xxxx is on, connect to it, open poweramp, play music" and so on.
    I love this type of system.. the possibilities are endless!

    was reading through here and didn't see you say that you had solved your charging issues with the tablet, thought you might want to read this: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1823377

    from a quick scan, i'm guessing you need a newer higher wattage charger like this: http://www.amazon.com/Mediabridge-Hi...ar+usb+charger
    and then you may need to take it apart and short the data pins on the usb port too.

    Not sure if you're going Nexus 7 or GT2 7"... but my GT2 7" has an IR blaster on the right side of it... if you plan on taking it apart, you may be able to extend the wires for it and use that.

    Hmm.What I meant was i have a device attached to my steeringwheel controls that sends the IR signal outward. So any deck etc.. that has an IR in/reciverer gets those. So you are saying the GT2 has an IR receiver or is just capable of sending IR?

    Ohhh... my bad. I'm not sure if it can receive a signal, I only know that it can send one. Before I put it in my dash I noticed it had this "Peel" TV Remote app that let you use it as a remote control for your TV.

    Hey there, love this project! Will be trying it tomorrow! just going to do the measurements, but I thought I'd ask - does anyone know if this fits a 2005 Vauxhall Corsa? it can fit a double din radio so I guess this would fit well, just thought I'd ask anyway. Thanks!
