Mount A 7-Inch Tablet In Your Car For Better Music, Navigation

DIYer Adam uses his Nexus 7 for just about everything, including the music and navigation in his car. But unlike phones, tablets — even smaller ones like the Nexus 7 — don’t mount quite as easily. Here’s how he got his tablet up and running in his car.

He wanted to make a mount that didn’t replace any of the car’s innards (so he could resell it later on), so he ended up using InstaMorph (a mouldable plastic) and a few painted lumber connecting straps. He took out the factory stereo and velcroed the mount on the top and bottom before putting it back in, so some disassembly will be necessary. But, the final product looks pretty great, so it’s worth the work (and of course, be sure to use hands-free devices to keep you safe on the road). Hit the link to see the full project.
