Red face Dynavin Android Users, Please Advise

I am preparing to swap out my Business CD unit with a new Dynavin Android Unit.

As you know there are two internal boards, the stereo/phone board and the Nav board. They each have their own USB inputs. I have ordered flushmount usb cabling for the Stereo side.

The most common application for the Android USB side is simply a WiFi dongle that is forever plugged in and out of sight.

My question for you is whether or not you think it might be worth it to run a USB cable from the Android side to a USB Hub (perhaps in the glove box) that can then connect the WiFi dongle, a Bluetooth Dongle, Thumb drive USB storage, additional USB devices like phones/cameras for charging, etc?

I know the app Torque allows you to read OBDII codes in real time through the use of a bluetooth OBD transmitter so this could be one reason.

Anyway, any insight that you might provide would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
-MD

Very interested as well. I'm not sure that you could just plug in a hub and receive power to all of the other devices. But maybe the dynavin units are more complex than I thought.

The device must have had built-in Bluetooth least
Maybe in the next version will fix this problem
