    I have a vibrocell of an old Siemens C35 (see photo, with a 1 euro coin) really small.
    With a little imagination you could possibly use....

    Geez, I guess I know who to send the really small work to....impressive! I'd be lucky if I could see the power button at all.

    Indeed! Rray - the tablet is on the way..!
    I can almost see the smoke coming out the top of your heads for trying to figure it out . I appreciate it. Just took these pictures that show how much room there is once the bezel is put back together with the tablet and the climate controls right under it. Sorry for the crappy pictures, I need to get better acquainted with my camera. Also shown is the hole I intend to use to push the power button (which is right above the hole) if need be..



    There is barely ľ in space to work with..


    Hereís the pin engaging the power button..




    Iím not worried about it too much, I donít expect the tab to freeze or shut-down very often, if at all.

    Thanks for the suggestions tho.

    Well, I did a little tinkering this weekend since the sun came out and after all that snow (2 inch) here in GA. It was time to go outside and enjoy the warm weather (60 F).
    I think I said it before that Iím going to try putting the radioís faceplate in the ashtray; that requires wires to be soldered to the contacts to have a cable running between the faceplate and the body of the radio. No way can I do it myself, those contacts are to small but fortunately, my son is pretty good at soldering and said he could do it.
    I did a little fab to see if I could prove the concept and it looks like it could work..
    This here is chopping-up the ashtray compartment to make the faceplate fit




    So now it fits..(thatís the faceplate under all that tape).


    But hey, while Iím at it, why not motorize it! So I grabbed an actuator I had laying around and started fabbing to see if it would work..






    Surprisingly, it works!

    The only problem was that the actuator was too long so I couldnít let it fully extend so I bought one the proper size and just got it the other day..



    And after installing the shorter actuator, things work just fine. Now I can let it extend and retract all the way.

    Whenever I get the radio back from my son and it's really warn outside, then comes trying to mold the faceplate into the ashtray; and I donít have a clue how to do it yet..

    And best of all, you can connect a USB DAC for high quality audio if so inclined.
    Any DAC recommendations? I'm looking at ibasso D-zero or FIIO E7 (Fiio E07K new version) as an option to install along with the bluetooth audio built-in to the HU.

    I had a GS3, and burnt it out connecting an ODAC. I don't know for sure but I suspected my OTG cable and tossed it.

    The ODAC still works though, but was on the list with hifimediy sabre as compatible. I have both and the are clean noise free and cheap.
