Has anyone added a 7" iPad or Tablet to their Trax, I see they have a kit to add one, by replacing the top piece above the radio. I have ordered it but wanted to see if anyone has done this conversation as yet. I should get it within 2 weeks and will post pics of the install

Hey Enrico,

I looked at it when I change the stereo in the car and decided against it. It requires cutting/shaving some of the inner brackets of the vehicle which will make re-installing the OEM unit impossible when we sell the car. There is another one that uses a rubber band and bridge USB cable. No way I was putting that in a new vehicle.

Instead. I bought an iGo bracket to install the tablet. Works great and I don't have to fight with it to bring it in the house and load it up or pull the memory cards out. Sometimes less is more. I went with a seven-inch unit complete with supplied bezel instead. Didn't have to cut up dash mounting brackets out of the car and its an hour job to return the whole thing to OEM, when we move the vehicle.

Did you receive the kit you ordered? I'm curious what it looks like.
I was interested but found it was pretty expensive.

In the meantime, I bought a 10.1" Insignia tablet.
Will try to make a custom dash mount for it.

That's a pretty neat looking aftermarket option, and a great price too. Any idea what's required with wiring to install it. Is it a simple plug and play application?

It's on my wish list.
It says all that's needed is there, but I'm pretty sure it would take a bit of patience to get it installed and hopefully good instructions. Preferably not Chinglish.

Gave myself a birthday gift today and ordered this...



I chose to be the guinee pig on this one, I will take lots of pictures during the install and make a step by step of the installation and update with features and bugs and fixes. Standby!
