That's damn tempting.

Thanks for posting OP.

I've just bought an E92 and I was thinking of doing something very similar to you - you have saved me having to work out the brackets.

Gonna try and find if you have posted about the appradio - that interests me too.

Thought this might be of interest.

Not sure how the nexus 2013 is charged when it is docked.

Eta, I didn't realise the 2013 nexus 7 had wireless charging!

With a little further research, this is getting even more interesting.

I found this official google nexus wireless charging doc, and it is magnetic! https://play.google.com/store/device...arger&hl=en_GB

Now if this was attached to the dash horizontally, could it hold the nexus 7 upright? If so, use Bluetooth audio with a single din Sony Appremote headunit, and it could be a great solution!

Eta, then I found this! http://www.androidpolice.com/2014/01...rything-right/
