Wiring for Tablet Dash
John B Offline
I have a raspberry pi tablet that will be replacing my stock gauge cluster. The tablet has a USB provision so the Pimp ECU can plug in and display any gauges I want. Speedo will be handled via GPS. The product supplier mentioned that it would be ideal for the tablet to be powered directly from the battery with an intermittent switch to avoid hard shut downs from a keyed ignition source. Here's what I'm thinking for the wiring:
Battery is mounted in trunk

10ga wire from battery to two prong toggle switch
10ga wire from Switch to fuse block (have other gauges in center console that are fed from this fuse block)
7.5A fuse (recommended from product supplier) to tablet power converter
Power converter plugs into tablet. Two wires; power and ground. Power goes to 7.5A fuse supply and ground is well ground. 

What's everyone thoughts on this? Seems simple to me; just making sure I'm not missing anything or if there's anything I'm overlooking.
88 Turbo Coupe: Front mount intercooler, MGW short throw shifter, full coilover conversion, tubular control arms front and rear, svo front brakes, vacuum assist brake swap, manual steering swap, GT35R turbo with external gate, pimpx ecu, 60lb injectors, 3 core aluminum radiator, Boport 1.5 cam, gutted upper, corbeau fixed back seats, and the list goes on.
