Hi!
I am loving your install, I'm looking to do something similar in my 2002 A4. What are the dash kits you got? Which one do you think matches best the Audi's black plastic? Thanks!

Question
I installed my Nexus 7 onto my dash (which sits up close to the windshield) in my Mercedes C300. Unfortunately, where I live, the heat is gruesome. I park in the shade and put up a windshield shade, but my tablet powers off due to the ambient heat. Do you guys have any ideas as to how I can keep this tablet cool?

hey guys, I'm planning to install N7 in my car (2010 TSX) ... the TSX fits nicely (with a bit of dremmel work) in the center console under the HVAC control.

It is going to be a permanent install in the spot, so I wanna setup the N7 before I install it.... I just got a few questions

- I am planning to install Timur's USB ROM cause it seems to be the best ROM for car install, but I find install info on Timur's page a little lacking (and I can't seem to find a thread on xda either) ... I have stock 4.3.2 ROM right now, rooted and TWRP recovery. Do I need to install a CM10.1 ROM before I install the Timur ROM? Or do I just wipe system and install the Timur ROM like I install a regular ROM? Timur's instruction is to wipe data and flash the zip ... which confuses me.

- Timur's ROM is a little dated but I'm just looking for basic functionality of GPS, audio playback, and maybe video the odd times ... is there a newer ROM that's good for car install too?

- What do you guys use for navigation? Google map works well, except my N7 is wifi only, so to use google map I need to turn on my phone's wifi tethering every time I drive, which, i can do via tasker, but it drains my phone's battery ... it's not ideal. I wonder if you guys use another app for map and navigation?

- What other apps do you guys use and suggest for a N7 car-puter?


Thanks in advance!

I use one from enfigcarstereo, it's the only one I could find that matched the black plastic perfectly. Everything else was just slightly off and did not look as nice.

I use Google maps as well, tethered to my phone, but with tethered via USB. I used to tether via BT but for some reason cannot get that working on my new phone, the advantage with tethering via USB though is my phone charges while its tethered.

Thanks, and yeah I keep meaning to tidy up the wires, but life gets in the way. Thankfully I don't see them while driving! I still keep toying with the idea of trying to get it working with the voice button on my steering wheel, but as with the wires I just never have the time.

No real updates on this project, a couple weeks ago I built a fiberglass tray that the Nexus sits in. The previous way I had it mounted it never felt particularly secure, and sometimes dropped a little while driving. The fiberglass tray I built for it is solid and has a lip that the Nexus sits right into. Other than that it's working as well today as when I created the thread.

Done, should be attached to this post.

The black border around the main image was so that it remained central on my home screen. Someone once told me about an app that I could use that would negate the need for the border, but I forget the app, and am not that worried about it to be honest. One day I may change it up a little (there are a few things I want to change using Photoshop when I have the chance) but for now it works nicely.
