    Unless you have a really long trip ahead or a very long commute. Don't really see the point in this. I saw the video you are talking about and I looks like a pain in the *** getting the tablet in an out if you have it in a case. Maybe you should wait bit and see if something more official come up.

    I love to give it a try (in-dash custom mounting) but don't have the time to put into it right now.

    I remember seeing someone post a link to a place that sells equipment for cop cars. It has a bunch of different types mounts for laptops, tablets, phone, etc. I'll do some searching to see if I can find the link.

    yea the inserting/removing was dookie on that ram...my best idea would be a 3 prong unit that pops out a little...sorta like a big brother to the old stereo cassette tape doors

    I am the camera man for Amplified! the internet tv show with the guys over at SoundMan Car Audio in Santa Clarita, CA. They were the first to put an iPad in a Car, and just yesterday (8/11/12), we filmed putting a Nexus 7 in a car... my car.

    Here is a picture, and a video. I love, it and it looks pretty cool. I wanted a simple install with no wires, as I just stream via bluetooth, and I don't see an issue where I would need to have it plugged in since it has great battery life. I have My Ford Touch in my 2011 Ford Edge, and I wanted to keep that screen but have the option to temporarily cover it with the Nexus 7 when I want more functionality in the vehicle.

    They already sell iPad panel kits, and they will be adding this magnetic/removal kit as well. If you are in interested, you can contact them on FB for pricing.

    I wish this was a standard double din mounting kit. Looks like a great option for anyone with that exact car.

    That video was of an early build. From what I understand they were going to make it easier to remove with their final product. I'm very interested in installing one in my F150. This tablet would be amazing on the road

    I have used RAM mounts for my last couple of devices and love the fact that you can piece together whatever you need for a mounting system. The only drawback has been the lack of device specific holders... until now. After reading this thread I decided to email them about a nexus 7 specific holder and found this:

    Thanks for the link to the RAM Mounts website. Their mounts look awesome. I like that I can buy a mounting arm and switch mounts for different devices!

    This one thing I will be testing on a full charge to see how it is. Other than Vegas, the most I trave would only be about 90 minutes one way, and even that is rare, but I will test it out and report back.

    I mounted mine in a 2002 Civic Si. It fits perfectly in the spot that's there for the radio. The Radio sits behind the tablet and it looks pretty clean. I also wired up a 12v power supply behind the radio and wires pass from behind. This way with the power plugged in, you can use the always on when charging function. My only thing that I'm trying to figure out is how to mount/attach a magnetic switch. Because the tab sits flush with the dash, hitting the power button is not ideal. If I was able to mount a magnet button somewhere, this would be complete. Anyone have ideas on that?

    I installed a N7 in my dash.

    Pictures of my project can be found over at XDA.



    Let me know what you guys think! Not so bad for a first time install.

    Looks like a lot of duct tape going on there. Hideous.
