Oh yeah ive read alot before attempting this and I heard that if your tablet is always on than eventually it will kill it.(dont know if its true or not) Since its always charging. What I did was I re-routed the power button to one of my dash button and I turn it on by that. Works like regular tablet button. And have it set up with tasker to when I turn on the key to ACC wich than sends power to the tablet than the tablet will wake up and start playing my music. And once I turn of the car it will stop playing music, go to sleep, switch airplane mode on and close all running apps..
But just case the power the ACC is providing is not enough to charge the tablet while heavy use I added an extra wire with a switch which basically gives the tablet power while the car is off...
Sorry if im nkt explaining my self clearly. Lol
