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 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?
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.
