Home made / poor man's "Touch Pro Duo"

If the RR and now the Evoque can have the Touch Pro Duo...why can't the Freely. Here is the challenge of fitting a "floating" tablet which is very much in vogue at the moment. I got the excellent Teclast M89 tablet with an 8 inch screen (2048 x 1536) and very good specifications (3GB RAM, etc.) - although like many Android tablets it's got bugs here and there.








The display in the cubby hole was fitted earlier - a Xiaomi with very good performance and value for money.

I then made a bracket out of an aluminium plate, which is shaped so that part of it slots under the front centre speaker panel (some filing is required).




Two ribs were fashioned so that the plate doesn't wobble when driving. 3M permanent tape holds the tablet securely while the USB cable is wired from the floor and up beside the air conditioning vents. Black colour cardboard was needed to hide the silver rear side of the tablet so as not to attract attention.







The result is a clean, upright tablet that can display maps whilst the now seconday screen displays Torque Pro readings.
