    Hi folks

    Looking for some advice on a suitable tablet for use as in my car.

    Im looking for either a 7 or 8 inch screen.

    It needs to have bluetooth - The primary use is to connect to a Bluetooth OBDII application (PLX Kiwi Bluetooth - Connect your Droid mobile device to your car's OBD2 OBDII Port) to display various engine diagnostic information.

    Needs to be Android 2.1 or later (if 2.1, the ability to update to 2.2 or 2.3, or eventually Honeycomb would be important.)

    Nice to have, but not essential:

    - GPS
    - 3G

    Im looking to (of course) spend as little as possible, but the device must have stable firmware, and (ideally proven) reliable hardware.

    If it makes a difference, I'm quite technically proficient so rooting and installing custom roms is no problem.

    Thanks!

    Thanks, appreciate the reply!

    Id been looking at the Linx.

    The Vega looks great too, but only in 10" ? I need 7 or 8" for the car really.
