    Hi,

    I was wondering if anyone had done this. I've successfully mounted my android phone just above my radio (using the vents) and am now awaiting delivery of a cheap 7" Android tablet to try with a larger screen.

    FYI - I'm doing this on a budget so have installed the 3.5" stero jack in place of the CD changer and created my own wiring for a steering wheel based remote for the Android system (includes a push button to pause, play, next and previous track and to answer/hangup the phone). Volume is per the normal wheel control.

    I'll post pics when I'm done... maybe a video if I'm feeling brave.
