Interesting, I'll have to search for a write up on this if you have one.
The only issue I have with retrofitting a tablet are for the following:
1) Power Cut Off - Ideally I'd rather not have the tablet run when the car is off. I don't want a parasitic drain from the batter to keep the device up either. Ideally, I'd look at this like my old car PC days and have a remote wire trigger the power so that there is a startup power signal and a safe shutdown signal so the device is off when the car is off.
2) Heat - Tablets these days with decent resolution and that are not laggy generally run hot. Being retrofitted into a dash means they are going to get less circulation (also don't want to cut into the vents to cool it off) which means the battery inside is a ticking time bomb of acid. Not only that, but this location is where the sun will be beating on it, so not only is the device producing heat, but it's absorbing it from the sun.
That said though, the functionality and the built in features of a tablet are hard to beat. I just need to figure out how to do it right.
