I'm in need to connect to my cars CANBUS to read steering wheel controls and was wondering if some decicated IC would be best for the interfacing with the bus such as MCP2515** paired with some AVR mcu?
Cost is not really an issue here, since its going to be one unit for me alone.
Little backround, Im going to replace Headunit of my car with android tablet, but i want to retain steering wheel controls for music playback/calling, which is why i need something to read the canbus and turn it into a command my tablet will understand.
PS. ive never done any work with canbus, if there is something i should take into consideration please let me know.
