If you leave it on all the time it will eventually drain your car battery right?

For those interested. I use the same hyco bar solution (its found in the plumbing section of home depot btw. 87 cents. (you only need 1 bar).

Instead of plank of wood i used a piece of rubber drawer lining which is between the nexus and the hyco bars. and provides it from slipping around or damaging the back of the nexus if i ever want to remove it.

Just can't figure out how to turn the nexus on. Is there a "power on when plugged in" setting in cyanogen mod perhaps?
You running CyanogenMod? Yes, there's a setting for "wake up on power" and "stay awake while charging." I use tasker to change screen timeout settings and wake the screen/"play" music on "charge."

Some more info in later posts here

I'm using a ROM that utilizes Android WiFi tether w/out it in my plan. Turns out the GPS issue is a Gen 2 Nexus 7 issue...still waiting for a fix.
