Im installing my tablet in my cars dash,

Im trying to find a Micro sd card extension cable so that I can easily connect a memory card to the tablet without taking the whole dash apart.

The dash kit I bought came with a couple regular SD extension cables which do me no good. I have no luck searching for these cables online. All I can find are wholesalers and I dont need 1,000 of them.

Anyone know where to find one? Maybe they are called something different than micro sd extension cable or something.

the only SD extension cables I've seen have been really pricy. I've never seen micro SD extension cables.

I know this isn't what you're looking for, but the app Wifi filetransfer / wifi file explorer pro will at least let you transfer files to the card/tablet while it's installed.

Not perfect, but better then nothing.

As said above, Wifi File Explorer Pro works great. I use it on my phone often.

I ended up trying the "software data cable" app and it worked really well.

I had been using drop box for ebooks, apk's, music etc.. but larger files took way to long to upload, I had no idea there was better ways.

That app is far more clunky than ES File Explorer for Android, but it gets the job done.

Hi, I'm looking also this extension card cable and I've seen this:

Do you think it can help?

it's not for a table, it's too avoid disassemble the device.
