Tablet As Head Unit

Has any used a tablet as their head unit in the winter? It'll get around -20C (-4F) I plan on installing it premaritally

I am sure you meant *permanently,* right? Also, I am curious how a tablet will serve as a head unit.

I wasn't saying it is a dumb idea, just never saw that before. I'll have to look into it.

I had mine left in my car in the summer, but not sure about the winter. I have mine so it's easily removable because I didn't want anyone to break into my car to take it. It should be fine as I've left my tablet in my car in the winter by accident, it just runs slow for a while as it's cold.
