-How are you turning it on? Does the nexus 7 automatically turn on when power is applied?

-Got some cute tasker scripts you want to share?

-Are you using car mode or some sort of alternative app?

-Any cool android in car apps you particularly like?

-Did the anti-glare screen help significantly?

-Plans for any cool peripherals? You can let your imagination go crazy with OTG and ioio.
Yes, I'm concerned about heat. Trying to think through some ways to address that. Right now it's winter so I have a few months to figure it out.

I use tasker to turn on screen and wifi when the power is applied via USB. The power adapter is switched.

Nothing fancy in tasker right now just wifi and screen on / off.

During testing I tried out many of the car apps and hated them all, car home ultra is not bad but overall did not like them. I decided that I put the tablet into the car because I really like the stock android experience so why ruin a good thing...

I've been researching IOIO + tasker options for a few ideas. Screen dimming with dash dimmer, timed charging, cooling etc.

Anti-glare helps allot, and had the added surprise benefit of making the tablet polarized sunglasses compatible.
