Amazing.
How about other applications? Is it safe to install other simple apps without dependency on Google Play?
Did you try Torque?

This hack is missing a very important part: how to backup everything and restore to factory state.

Hi,
using Soundabout is ok but after it is installed, if the car plays the autovelox sound or other alerts from AVM, the front speakers stop working until you reset the audio configuration or restart the car.....
