The switch is why i posted this thread, unless your talking about something different. Apps are always good.

No mine is always on, and the switch wakes the tablet and then charges it. accessory or engine start is not required to charge.

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

Another issue I ran into.. if you are going to use tablet talk jt will interfere with bluetooth gps. If your using bluetooth gps should be good.

I have no clue how to import it. I just got the app this week and still learning. If you could post a video, I would be so grateful. Also, im interested in how you added that other wire to charge your nexus when the car is off. Right now I got mines connected to the cigarette lighter, and I don't think it will charge the tablet fast enough. I most do short trips
