How is your n7 powered? Are you using an invertor or the 12 v socket? Which brand?

One the of best, complex, interesting and unusual DIYs that I have read in a long time and I am impressed with your ideas, patience and perseverance in achieving the same. Rated the thread 5 Stars for all the efforts you have put.

Fixing the Tab, interfacing the same with various USB units for streaming and Media, the DAC module with the Microphone 'et al take this DIY to the next level .

I am sure you will have a tough time when some curious co-passengers sees and experiences your set-up and asks you How did you do it?

Apologies for the silence. My 10-month old niece on vacation, deadlines at work, some travel and another small DIY project have been and will be keeping me busy for the next couple of weeks. Promise to get back with responses for each one of your queries and some demo pics / video post that. Thanks for all the appreciation meanwhile.

Fantastic job! To add , are you converting 12 V to AC, and then using the stock SMPS adapter for the N7?

This is the post that is shown to a lot of my tech friends (read IITs) who talk of ideas inside their cars- and believe you me, its quite a humbling experience for them.
Am very impressed with your whole ownership and detailing of it.
Kudos

Excellent thread and amazing detailed write up. Have had a nexus 7 2012 lying around the house and have been wanting to do something like this. You have just inspired me to take the plunge.

Any thoughts on attaching a keyboard to the setup for easier access? I'm assuming that the setup also does not let you receive / make calls as nexus 7 is without a sim.

Hi
Any battery drainage issue? Or does the dc-dc PCB handle that? Or did you splice the factory stereo cable only ( that actuates on ignition only) to the power input for the board?

Have been planning to do something like this for a while, so glad to find this torch.

Not really an electrical guy, hence the ques.
