Nice to see this being done, I've wanted to get a decent car pc in my car for some time. Theres a few double din android solutions out there i've came across which are tempting but the nexus 7 processing power would certainly be a bonus. Some luxuries however like bluetooth control of my actual phone I don't think can be easily achieved?

The models i've been looking at are Erisin ES7135A, Xtrons TD718A - If I had a newer Golf rather than a MK4 i'd of been interested in Erisin ES7036A or Xtrons TD605A as I have canbus display for my radio on my instrument panel. What do you guys think of them as a solution?

Bluetooth control of the phone is done using an app called TabletTalk. It lets you receive calls, answer, dial, text etc from your tablet, and it controls your phone. Brilliant!

Having a Nexus 7 makes it incredibly powerful. There's no way a double din android solution would be any better + it'll be much more expensive!

I'm not sure about it being more expensive... lol. Those double din units are available from 220 but the processor really lets it down. Now I must checkout this tablet talk app... edit: checked it out and it appears its just for sms control? ... ahh it does say something about voice if you have a bluetooth headset... interesting.

Here's the way I use it in my setup:

1- Phone is paired with JVC head unit using bluetooth (BT profile for voice).
2- Phone is paired with Nexus 7 using TabletTalk/bluetooth.

All the pairing is done automatically when I enter my car.

When my phone rings:
1- Headunit automatically detects a phone call, switches from aux audio (tablet) to BT audio (phone).
2- TabTalk kicks in and displays a popup window on tablet showing caller ID, picture, and a button to answer or ignore call.
3- Tap the answer button and call goes through.

Magic!

Here's a pic of the setup in daylight:

Wow that is magic. This is exactly what I want to do in my 2010 Ford Focus. I, and many other I'm sure, would like more details and perhaps a step-by-step?

Thanks,

I'm curious on the sound quality of this especially since there isn't a true line out. The sound is being amplified from the nexus 7 and being double amplified by your amplifier. I'm sure it works, but as far as sound quality, there are much better options out there.

Actually you'll probably get better sound quality with a less than $100 head unit. It wouldn't look as nice but it would probably sound better.

here's a video explaining a set up that apparently loses no audio quality and hooks up to other amps speakers etc.

uses a audison bit one. here's an article. http://www.androidcentral.com/nexus-...nt-system-ever

edit: the audison bit one is pretty expensive. like 600-700 dollars. There must be a cheaper alternative.

here's another solution for a Ford Edge which already has bluetooth enabled. http://www.androidcentral.com/nexus-...tifully-simple
