    You're in Euro area right? What type of vehicle is that? What's going on with that screen? GPS or DVD player?

    Yup, Stockholm/Sweden...

    That is a 8,4 4:3 Lilliput 800x600 native resolution VGA monitor, ripped out of its casing, connected to a laptop, running Windows XP and basically everything, Spotify, navigation, FM, Internet, video, mp3 and so on.

    Vehicle is MB SL600 -94:

    Before the monitor installation the centre console looked like this:

    So basically I am looking for a Tablet that will do all this, built in functions or addons/peripherals doesn't matter, but FM-reciever is crucial...

    Samsung Galaxy Tab seemed perfect except for a bit expensive (would not be an issue if it had all features) and missing FM-reciever...

    ICD Gemini seems perfect, only if specs could be verified, it could be released soon and the large screen would fit...

    According to the specs you need, I think only the Samsung Galaxy Tab fits your specs, it is the only one with 512MB Ram.
    If you don't need that much of Rams and can cater with 256MB Ram, then you can include other choices like the EV7 and the ViewSonic pad.
    If you dont need 3G or phone capabilities, I recommend the new Archos 70 or 101

    The Samsung Galaxy Tab is a sweet one, but lacks one function, FM-reciever...

    3G is a must have feature, either built in or dongle, doesn't really matter.

    So far the ICD Ultra or Gemini seem to fit the needs perfectly, but no info on release date, specs seem a bit hazy and no pricetag.

    I already run a Windows CarPC and that one won't fit, too deep.
    Apart from that, it does not have a FM-reciever, if running Windows, not an issue, but since I don't want to run Windows....

    Next one, interesting, have sent them a e-mail for more information.

    Same thing there, no FM-reciever, and besides, I don't want an Ipad.

    Yes, of course, but the thing is, since I know of two that exists and has "everything", the ICD ones, I don't see the point of getting one that does not has "full" functionality.
