So I am I the market for a new double din. I really find most brands out there not nearly worth the price, for what you can do with them. I origionally wanted to do the tablet install but for lack of time and a few other issues that deterred me I settled for this similar option. So for those who are not familiar:
Here is the product
Parrot ASTEROID Smart - Navigation, Apps, multimedia and Bluetooth® hands-free
And here is an excellent write up about it
(car audio) Parrot ASTEROID Smart - xda-developers
Sonicelectronix has best price I have found. Crutchfield has very mixed reviews, but the reason I am confident is that 1. This is basically an android tablet intended for car audio use so many updates will come 2. I am pretty tech savvy so I am not concerned with possibly rooting it. A lot of the bad reviews are from people who can barely navigate through a pioneer HU and complain about simple things that can be rectified with minimal knowledge.
All in all I basically just find this unit having the most potential for expandability and updating, if you are willing to do some research and mabye play around wit some developer tools, which I am.
In any case, will be ordering today after work and will report back with a write up after the install. One question though, is the very expensive harness/module required for install? It has sokething to do how the radio shuts off whem the door is opened and key off. Which I do not like. Anyone else looking into this product?
