What do you think, /o/?
Tablet-in-dash installs are so early 2010s
I'm waiting for inexpensive headunits that support Android Auto
Are you from the future?
For $400 this thing looks great
QNX platform that runs on the headunit that lets your phone stream a special driving oriented interface to the display that uses the car's inputs and outputs to interface with it
Basically it turns your phone into a head unit just by plugging it into a USB port. Apple has a wireless version too, but that's fucking stupid because it murders battery life.
When you get a new phone, you get an upgraded headunit because everything is done on the phone
>OEM infotainment units
And obviously someone replacing their unit with a tablet doesn't give a rat's ass about validation.
You sound like some autistic marketer or something
>The hell are you even saying anymore?
I'm saying you are Dunning-Kruger come to life.
>Are you seriously getting this anally annihilated over people modifying their cars on an automotive enthusiast board?
Nigga you're the one who got upset about me saying it was stupid.
I want to add a raspberry pi to my car, I guess I could MPD over debian for this. but what I'm really aiming for is adding a NFC and an LCD to my pi.
I want a really long and skinny LCD like one of those scolling LED screens in shops maybe by putting many small LED screens side by side, and an NFC reader so I can stick it inside my cassette player and add nfc tags in my cassettes, so every cassette can be a playlist.
How feasable is this?
I don't want a big ass LCD touchscreen in my 1980s car.
The LCD might be overkill, if I used a rasbperry pi could I conect a frontend on my phone using adHoc?
I dunno what to do.
Gross. I wish chrome push button radios were still the standard.
It only charges when you have accessory power, assuming you hooked it up like that and not directly to the battery
I'm assuming you can just push the home button to wake up an iPad.
For Android there are custom roms that power on and unlock when they detect they're charging, and do into deep sleep when they're not charging
good taste anon, would only be better if it was a gti or maybe an 4tc. I would let you know that replacing the dashboard with an entire screen is actually very 80's though.
This is super smart
The only limitations end up being the hardware of the head unit itself, I doubt anybody is going to care enough about the resolution of the screen to want to spend money to upgrade it.
The question is whether or not we can get an NFC version with Qi so that I don't have to plug my phone in every damn time.
The reason they suck is because they have to go through rigorous testing to make sure they don't throw weird frames to the CANbus and shit.
The shit posted here isn't tied into the car so there's no need for "validation" unless you're really super worried about somehow losing Google Maps.
The thing is that when running as a head unit and charging wirelessly at the same time the phone will get really hot. Not only that but the battery will probably discharge faster than Qi can charge it
true true, usb-c on my lumia 950, that thing is pretty beastly with just something like file transfers or charging, haven't tried video/audio yet really, getting my docking station from microsoft soon I hope so I can toy around.
Android Auto - shitty closed system.
I don`t know. Go here and use google translator. http://pccar.ru/showthread.php?t=23683
Parking sensor, yay.
The cheap ones have resistive screens, like what a Nintendo DS uses. You can't do shit like pinch to zoom with them.
Only Pioneer's most expensive ones come with a captive screen like what your phone uses.
Resistive screens are a deal breaker for me senpaitachi
Personally, I prefer reisistive. Allows me to use gloves while using it. I'm aware of ultra sensitive capacitive screens that can detect through gloves, but this is inconsistent and I'm not going to try and pinch and zoom with gloves on while I'm driving.
If Android in cars does become a thing, I hope someone can make a button kit + app that mounts to the touchscreen. Just give me basic functions and let that be that. Also let it fold up or down or something if I want Google Maps.
Who the fuck uses resistive touchscreens anymore?
>but muh gloves
Who the fuck drives with gloves? Cars have heaters, use them.
The only time it's uncomfortable to touch cold surfaces in a car is when you first get in and start it
have you seen those new ford commercials?
they market the incar technology more than the actual car itself
>BOY I SURE LOVE UPDATING MY FACEBOOK STATUS WHILE GOING 90 ON THE FREEWAY
these are the lowest denomenators the industry has to cater to now. As bad as boomers are atleast they didn't fuck up the car scene like millenials are right now
My headunit supports Android Auto and CarPlay, never used the Android Auto part though.
