You can see the tablet is well integrated with car. I used Huawei Mediapad X1 because I had some size limitations, and this one is the smallest 7" tablet I've found.
I used CarHome Ultra as frontend, and some apps for multimedia (Poweramp, MusicXmatch, Google Play Music), GPS car navigation (Sygic, Google Navigation), OBD2 (DashCommand), etc, etc, etc.
I connected tablet headset output to my car audio AUX input.
The tablet puts automatically on/off when I start engine. I used "Actions" app to automatize WakeUp/Sleep depending on charging state. Tasker app is more powerful, but It was impossible to install.
It's very important to charge the tablet with a 5V-4A regulator like this one in DX
. It's important to charge battery quickly!
Also, I used an app -don't remember the name- to put tablet in lowest consumption to minimize battery drain when is sleeping.
Well, if you do the same, show us the project, ...and luck!
