    I am loving my HTC Magic running on CM6.1 stable, so therefore i have decided to buy a 7" android tablet pc (800 mhz with 512 mb ram, wifi, etc.).
    I plan to use it as a carputer (install it in my Toyota Vario dashboard), as i plan to benefit by playing audio, video files.
    Now the main concern comes to using internet (especially gps and apps like skype,etc.). I dont know if anyone has ever tried installing it in a car, but the only solution for ready-access internet availability in a moving vehicle would be a usb internet device. I have one working on my windows desktop .. will this work on my tablet android ? IF it works, then i can easily run vehicle navigation softwares for android but for some reason, I have high doubts about it.
    Secondly, If i connect an external usb sound card with my tablet to improve the sound quality, and connect it with my car speakers/amp, will it work? I mean .. no driver issues, malfuctioning issues, etc. ?
    I would be very glad if anyone could share some advice/info regarding this.

    Not all Android tablets are the same...so which one do you have? While I don't use my tablet as a carputer, I am able to connect to the internet through wireless tethering with my phone. There are some tablets with 3g builtin but not all do. Also using a 3G usb dongle may not work on some tablets because the firmware it runs does not have that enabled.
    Some have a built-in GPS so there's no need for bluetooth sharing so you can run Navigation apps.

    So, it really depends.

    Music files hog a lot of data through the phone.
