    I want to do a little project to mount a tablet in the radio insert of the 80's landcruiser and use it as gps map and radio with an updated sound system.
    As anyone has done this yet?
    Any help or advice would be appreciated

    How do you plan to power the tablet ? You might just end up shortening it's useful life.

    i've seen some multimedia touch screen running Android on Ebay for around $200 just wondering how Hema Maps and audio program will perform

    Gday mighty , I bought an ELINZ unit off eBay a couple of years ago for $400 , GPS was good , radio was crap , phone bluetooth was garbage.
    If your going to look at a multimedia unit buy a quality unit , buying a cheap knock off you might as well kiss your money goodbye.
    Ive since bought a SONY car play unit , which I'm wrapped with( and will fit in the cruisers dash) and a mounted tablet for GPS in the bush .
    A good multimedia unit will cost you around 1500-2000 bucks , my set up has cost me about $800 and covers all scenarios for me .
