Default Genos 9" android tablet install

Well this will not be much of a build thread cause it took almost no time.

9 " levono android tablet

Metra dash kit for a double din.

Build went super fast one day total. First picture is before painting and during fitting. Rest are 95% finished just need to make a few changes. Will have torque,pandora music app, google maps. and a few other things

All done on the steering wheel works like a charm

How did you integrate it to the steering wheel? PAC cable? Does the tablet audio play through speakers? Easily removed to add movies? Looks sweet

Uses sync to play audio to Bluetooth all the stock steering wheel controls work like normal. Pandora and the music player both work over blue tooth. Yes I can remove it but there is no need to add movies or whatever I have the USB from the tablet run to the glove box all I do is plug it into my laptop and can add anything off my computer. But it has wifi so I can download anything from the web via wifi

Very interesting. No issues with navigation catching GPS signals? What else can you do with it?

I leave my stock nav on the split screen with radio, a/c controls and the map most of the time. I too use the radio controls for most functions. Do you have a "stock" screen that provides useful information? Does the screen dim at night time. These tablet dashes facinate the hell out of me. I have no guts to tackle something like it but it's awesome t see what you guys are capable of.

Anything a tablet /computer can do it can do watch movies play angry birds exc. ( not while driving lol). I have navigation google maps google search Internet exc. my truck has the little LCD screen for all the useful truck info.

It's Better then the stock navigation and only $400 not $1600

Probably a dumb question, but what keeps the tablet in there? Some type of glue or bracket?
