It would also be a pain if you actually use the normal radio since you wouldn't have access to preset buttons which I guess your steering wheel controls would scroll through but if you ever pull your battery and lose your presets then you have to pull the dash again.
Idk I see positives and negatives, but whats important is that it works for how you want to use it.
- Tablet is auto-paired to phone via BlueTooth as soon as they are within range. Phone calls and texts are displayed on the tablet (app is called TabTalk). That also gives the tablet full internet using the phone's data plan.
- My phone is paired to the headunit using BlueTooth as well. This lets the call's audio go to the head unit. Once they are paired you never need to touch the headunit again.
- Normal radio is done using TuneIn radio on Android.
I don't see any negatives
