Android HU in place of Factory HU question?

I have been looking around getting ideas on how to replace the factory stereo HU with a tablet, but then i ran across this website that has everything I was thinking about doing all in a nice kit. It looks like you just plug and play, not really sure yet. I was wondering if anyone has seen this or have installed this unit, and how does it work?

I was thinking of doing the same with a Nexus 7 before I just bit the bullet for my Pioneer unit. It's still something I'm thinking of doing in my future installs.

Re: Android HU in place of Factory HU question?

I've learned over the years that a lot of these low-end products just don't perform well, and/or stop working, and/or have many many glitches. They just don't go through the same Q.A. as the brand name stuff. This is more of a "don't expect it to actually work 100%" msg.

At least it looks almost factory compared to other aftermarket HU with lot's of plastic frame around it.

Too bad they don't stretch the screen to a 7" minimum, and run all the buttons at the bottom & top instead of both sides taking up valuable widescrenn space.

Is anyone brave enough to order one of these? I wish someone else more well known would come out with something like this.
