Hey guys. I am looking for the best way to install my Nexus 7 in my F150 while keeping the factory head unit. I can pair my nexus 7 and my galaxy s3 via bluetooth to the factory head unit and make calls with my phone and have media audio with my nexus 7. I can also tether my nexus 7 to my S3 so the nexus 7 will have internet access for streaming pandora, using google maps ect. I can do all this while maintaining the use of Ford Sync with my phone.
This is exactly what I am looking for from a functionality standpoint, my problem is coming up with an elegant mounting solution. The Nexus 7 fits perfectly over the factory stereo. While it does cover some of the controls, most of the controls can be done through the steering wheel or voice commands. I would like to mount it over the factory stereo and have a bezel around it to conceal the power cord going to the Nexus 7. It would be surface mounted on the existing stereo trim I assume but would like to trim it out nice so that it looks good.
I originally thought about just going with a mount like this.
I think it looks okay but then you are going to have the power cord in plain site which I don't think would look very good.
I would love to hear of any ideas you guys might have in helping me make this happen. I would love to come up with a good solution. Thanks.
