Default Nexus 7 as a deck in car

So I have a Flo, and a 2000 BMW m5, so I decided to combine the two.



I'd like the community input on three issues,

First would be what audio processor should I be using? Ie Walkman or any other flashable audio software?


Second, is poweramp the most ideal music player for this setup?

Third, how in the heck do I get navbar on the left or right hand side. Being on the bottom has its disadvantages when it's 2 feet away

I'm on Mahdi rom.

The audio player kinda comes down to preference but i PowerAmp does seem ideal.
For the Navbar try this app: https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...d.hidesoftkeys
And i highly suggest you install Viper4Android. The difference is phenomenal

i will get on that @ viper4android

but that hidesoftkeys app doesn't appear to make using the navbar any easy , does it give you options to place it on the left or right?

You're awesome. This is awesome. Thank you.

Are you aware of any volume widgets that would allow to easily control music volume without much effort while driving lool

You may need to resize the widget to make it bigger

That navbar app doesn't move your stock navbar but adds a trigger for another?
