Can I ask why you changed from a Android box thing to using a mobile device?

I'm looking into doing either with my E30, I can't go over 5" or so screen size if I want the screen in the roof.

You don't happen to know if there are apps that can read data from various inputs around the car? For myself it will really just be from the engine as there isn't much else in the E30 that readings can be taken from.
Hey, Jozi. The reasons for the switch were 2 fold: 1) the CCC monitor is not HD, so the camera won't capture 1080p video, it's "dumbed down" for lack of a better term, to low grade video and 2) b/c the CCC monitor isn't HD *lol*

There are a couple nice apps out there now that connect via a BT OBDII connector, but the E30 isn't OBD II, so I don't know if they'll do you much good.

You mentioned not wanting to go over a 5" screen. The Zopo C2, shown in the comparison pictures, is a 5" HD screen.
