I just finished my install over the weekend. Here are a few final pics.

Since I already had a Parrot system in the car the audio part was taken care of.

I created a dummy insert with the same dimensions as a standard double din but not as deep to accomodate the thickness of the tablet. I then glued (sugru) a snap on N7 back cover from ebay to the face of the insert so I can snap the tablet in and out for servicing. The dummy DIN insert is held into the dash using the OEM mount points with the "wings" transplanted from a double din mounting kit. This ensures I have the correct angles to mate with the trim pannel. I'm using the trim pannel from a USDM navi model.

A bit hard to visualize, I will gather some photos of the innards over the next few days and post them.

All together I'm pretty pleased with how this came out, the overall fit and finish is oem looking and secure.
