    @Gromett Just wondering if the above is true? If so, I think the Android/Kodi Box runs on 5v, could this be installed in a Motorhome..

    Thughts?

    Quite a few of us have or have had raspberry PI's in our vans. We now use a firestick though

    I am not sure what you are asking sorry. The Rasp Pi runs on 5 V and therefore be run in the van easily. I have not followed the Rasp Pi forum for a while so I am not sure if there is an Android Distribution yet for the Pi. It should be relatively easy for them to do one as it runs on an Arm processor. However it is an ArmV6 Architecture so not sure how much of it will run unmodified. Armv7 and Armv8 are out now and have a large set of new security instructions which I am sure Android will be using?

    Short answer... I don't know.

    My son sorted out a raspberry pi for us to use ion the m/h they use very little power but wont run a full web browser good enough for e-mails. He also set it up fir tv (getting sky free!!!!!) but it judders and I can't now ask him how to get it working better. Unless you know more than me......not a lot!! probably best to but a ready sorted solution.
