    Want to use my Acer tablet for GPS in the car. Would like to plug in a USB camera into the USB port and run to the rear of the car to act as a "backup" camera or "see behind" camera. Have not found any apps in the Android markets that will work. Any help would be appreciated/

    Check out Contour Cams (Contour | GPS Video Camera, HD Helmet Camera, and Video Community). You can use their camera and app to get a live feed of the camera via blue tooth. Works pretty well. You can get the idea from this review.
