FAQs

 Nope!  Workshop 12 uses Samsung Android tablets specifically for their ability to charge and use USB accessories at the same time. To be honest, iPads don't typically work well for customizations when integrating into a vehicle. Click here for more details

 

 

 Short answer... No. Long answer... Our kits are designed to hold an affordable tablet that fits within the bounds of the inner workings of the vehicle's dashboard. There's much less room back there than one might think.

We try to choose tablets that have the best balance of vehicle fit, performance and affordability. As we evolve our products, we consider adding new variants to meet market demands and tablet availability. Click here for more details

 

 

Kenwood Electronics - Yes
The Kenwood has a pre-out connection that can be sent to your subwoofer amplifier.

MK1.7 Electronics - Yes
We have many customers with aftermarket amplifier and subwoofer setups. For the MK1.7 Electronics you can check out our guide to see how everything connects together for an aftermarket amplifier and subwoofer setup.


Kenwood Electronics - Yes

The Kenwood KMM-BT228U supports up to 5 active Bluetooth connections.

MK1.7 Electronics - No
A tablet does not support the host A2DP Bluetooth profile required unlike a common aftermarket head unit which has it by default. However, you can typically achieve a similar result. This can be done by using a paired internet connection or an accessory app and/or USB dongle.

 Kenwood Electronics - Yes

The Kenwood has hands free phone functionality and includes a wired cabin microphone.

MK1.7 Electronics - No
A tablet does not support the host Bluetooth hands-free profile required unlike a common aftermarket head unit which has it by default. However, we have had various people achieving success with hands free by using either an Apple CarPlay or Android Auto USB dongle.

 Nope! Workshop 12 uses PETG plastics for behind the dash support material that are heat resistant and any surfaces directly exposed to sunlight are manufactured in Nylon which is heatproof to 163C/325F. Most stories of people having 3D prints melt/warp inside vehicles are using PLA as a printing material. As a reference vehicles sitting in the sun for over an hour in Arizona have dashboard surface temperatures reaching 157F on average.

 Workshop 12 manufactures some of the plastics for the kit in-house and outsources some of the driver exposed plastics manufacturing to Shapeways.

Kenwood Electronics - Yes
The Kenwood has steering wheel support with use of an Axxess ASWC-1 Steering Wheel Controller.

MK1.7 Electronics - Yes
There's a product called the RcJoyCon CPJexc that allows you to map steering wheel controls to Android commands. These can typically be found on ebay for purchase.

 

 

 Yes! There is a product called EasyCap USB dongle, which converts S-Video to USB. You can find the EasyCap dongle here. The EasyCap dongle simply connects into one of the four USB ports on our MK1 Companion or MK1.7 Electronics. You can download the app on the Play Store and view the footage.

 Yes: There are app options for those wanting to connect their Android phone to the tablet using Android Auto for streaming music or hands-free calling from their Android phone. One such example is Headunit Reloaded which allows for either a WiFi connection or a USB connection (Workshop 12 has not yet verified this).

 Yes: There are various Apple CarPlay USB dongles out there that are being used by community members that allow you to connect your iPhone to the tablet using a USB cable just like you would in an OEM equipped Apple Car Play vehicle. This allows you to play music or hands free call from your phone on the tablet.

We have a video demonstration of this dongle on our YouTube Channel

 For some kits: Some of the Brainiac plastics come in raw unfinished 3D printed plastic that require sanding and painting. Others are plastic injection molded and pre-painted. Your kit details will specify if it requires sanding and painting. We have posted a tutorial on how to prep and paint your Brainiac plastics.

 Yes: The Kenwood and our MK1.7 Electronics will work with both BOSE equipped and NON-BOSE Nissan models.

 There is a way: The Brainiac plastics fit both the OEM navigation and non-navigation models. However, the OEM navigation equipped vehicles need to be swapped over to use the non-navigation climate control module.

 There is a way: The Brainiac plastics fit the non-navigation model center waterfall console (piece that has the 3 gauges). The OEM navigation equipped 350z's have a little lip/hood at the top of where the non-navigation cubby opening is. This lip/hood gets in the way of the Brainiac plastics. By installing a non-navigation center waterfall trim piece, the 350z kit can be used. More information can be found here.

 No: The Brainiac plastics will technically fit in these models, however there is no way to manage climate control as our kit is designed to manage the dual-zone climate control circuitry. We will be considering a solution for the manual climate control after we successfully launch the dual-zone model.

 Yes: Brainiac plastics use a standard Samsung tablet that allows you to install any Android app that you like. We highly recommend our Brainiac home screen launcher for gesture based controls and convenience features as our plastic kits cover the Samsung hardware buttons.

 Kenwood Electronics - No
Currently there isn't a way to control the AM/FM radio of the Kenwood receiver when it is tucked in the dashboard. We are working on a possible solution, but are making no promises :)

MK1.7 Electronics - No
There isn't built in AM/FM radio support. You may be able to achieve this with a USB accessory and app combination.

 There are two ways: (1) Connect the tablet to a WiFi hotspot device (your phone or an external hotspot device) (2) Purchase the variant of the tablet that has a built in 4G connection.

 Yes: There's only so much we can do here as a tablet has limitations. If the tablet gets super hot it will go into a suspended mode until it cools down. The reason why it does this is because it does not want to charge/use a super hot battery.

The MK2 plastics are designed to allow you to remove the tablet from the vehicle. If parked in extreme temperatures for a prolonged period of time you may want to consider moving the tablet from the dash to someplace cooler.

 Yes: Feel free to connect a Bluetooth or USB OBDII dongle to your tablet and use apps such as Torque to view ODBII information. You can purchase the OBDII scanner here.

 Yes: Our MK1 Tablet Companion and the MK1.7 Electronics allows for charging your tablet and 4 USB connections.

 If the tablet runs out of battery and shuts down, then it will need to be recharged before turning it back on. The MK2 plastics are designed to allow you to gain access to, or remove, the tablet from the vehicle to re-charge.

 Yes: I highly recommend following our tablet power settings guide. This will have the tablet go into sleep mode and preserve its battery when the vehicle is not running.

 You can find our Brainiac launcher app on Google Play.
