Default [Q] Car install - Volume Softkeys ?

Looking for a way to add volume softkeys. see pic attached.
I have GMD GestureControl and Volume in Notification as a bandaid for the time being.
indash install is 95% complete and will be posting a complete walkthrough of it installed in my 2007 honda element.
been done but I used a few creative tricks that might be helpful to others.

you could install a custom rom that allows widgets into the nav bar.

id assume there are other ways to do this too. cool setup. I want to put a tablet in my car like this when I upgrade vehicles.
There is no substitute for reading about the software you are about to alter your $700 device with.

The screen brightness even at the dimmest stock value was almost the end before the start until I was reccomend to try lux from the play store. It lets you go way under the stock brightness resulting in a perfect night driving whether you want it dim to keep less distracted or dim to play video that's much less noticeable from outside
