I changed my setup to have the tablet power on upon receiving AC ignitionpower using this adb command:



Then I have Tasker turn it off after minute not being used. I'm sure it's not good for the Nexus 7 to always be at 100% power, but I don't care about the batter health because I purchased this for my truck only.

My only concern now, is the safety of the battery in AZ summer heat. I don'twant it to explode, and iI'm wondering if the tablet will function with AC power only, then I could remove the battery and not worry about it.

How are about temperature there? How is your setup into truck? I mean n7 is into the Dash? Or You have some support? Anyway maybe your technical questions will be better answering on developer forum (If You have installed usb rom by timur)

The temperature gets to almost 120F (48.8C) in the summer, and that's outside the vehicle. I took a dremel to my dash and modified it to mount the nexus 7. It's clean and looks just about stock. I made a wooden box to the dimensions of double DIN, and put the mounting brackets on either side. I used sticky tape to mount a nexus 7 matte black case to the front of the box, so when I slide the box into the double din area it lines it up perfectly. Then I just snapped the dash back into place over the top of the Nexus 7. So, the tablet is basically built into my truck.
