I would suggest you not use your android, but get a seperate wireless or wired remote so that you can also control your i pod selections too. Most Android/ smartphone apps do not have this functionality.
We have a wried remote from our Helm station and also a stero jack there so we can put the i pod and change selections from there without having to go below.
Both wired remotes come up though the pedestal gaurd tube and into the top gran prix nav pod wich also has instruments and autohelm modules. I installed myself if you need further info.
