    FM Transmitter for Android

    I believe a while back I had stumbled across this device. It's not new but at the time I only saw compatibility for Apple but now they have the device and App for Android. In case anyone is interested this looks like a sweet tech to include if you decide to completely replace your stereo with a tablet as I have. I personally don't miss the standard over the air radio stations because I rarely listened to them anyways due to over saturation and commercials...

    However, there may be that moment where say you wanted to go to a drive in movie theater..yes there are a few lingering around... at least in my area. They transmit the sound through the radio so without a tuner that's a no go.

    This device looks like it may close that gap. I plan to wait off on upgrading my tablet until the Galaxy S Tab is release (rumored). I learned that Galaxy S has an FM tuner (maybe that is just the "Non-US" version), I will have to do some more looking into that.

    Anywho.. This device appears to be quite available through out different online retailers like amazon, sears, etc. So that's good. I read mixed reviews but I never really base my decisions on them because most people either don't understand the tech or expect different than what the device is marketed for.

    It's called TuneLink Auto for Android. There is also a version for Apple.

    Simplify It

    Hmmm... I was thinking about this and maybe.. I will simplify my project a bit. Lately it seems that as time progresses so does the tech on the smartphones and tablets. With that said I'm thinking about just simply integrating the Samsung media dock for my smartphone and simply connecting it to an external LED touchscreen..true it will lack the unique touch capabilities built into my smartphone but when i'm driving I dont care about those things.

    This would solve a few things:
    1. Well it goes without saying I will save a few bucks
    2. Simple in that I only need one device which is the ultimate and portable

    MimicsX2...May be the Way to Go for Simplicity

    Here is a demo showing how the MimicsX2 now supports Android. This is what I think would be most ideal for simplicity yet all the same fun as with the tablet.

    The only thing is there is apparently quite the backorder and I can understand why with such an innovative gadget. I hope MP3Car is one of those backorders to include in product their store

    It seems that I misunderstood the website for the MimicsX2. The thing that is backordered is the product they have that supplies the touchscreen along with their module. That means I can get started on this sooner. All I need is the MimicsX2 module and I can get a touchscreen elsewhere. Woohoo!! Sounds like a plan.

    Here's a link to the module if anyone is interested. http://www.customgadz.com/store/prod...p?id_product=1

    My New Design

    So here are the new components:

    Double Din Lilliput with HDMI. Of course I will be having different connections than in this image.

    The MimicsX2 with Type A switcher. This enables the interface between my smartphone and the lilliput and uses bluetooth as part of that interface.

    This is the Samsung media doc I am looking into. Has good reviews. Not entirely sure I will need this for the project but I planned on getting this anywayz.

    Oh well. It was a long shot I suppose. It's sounds like the way to go but from what I am fining on the web and even here in these forums CustomGadz does not seem to be able to keep up with the demand. That's too bad because I cannot seem to find any other solution like that. Most everything else are just mirror displays and not necessarily controlling your smartphone or they are limited to just iphone (boo). Sooo..I suppose back to my tablet upgrade which I am holding off on to see what else is coming out this year.
