12.1" Android Screen Retrofit

Just wondering if anybody has tried putting one of these Tesla style screens in from Phoenix Automotive. Seems like it retains all OEM features.

Got it installed in my truck. Fit and finish is superb. Looks very OEM. However, having some programming issues. The touch screen features arenít currently working and the navigation is erratic. Shows me driving on the correct road and then it shows Iím blocks away. Iím trying to troubleshoot the issues with their tech support. Time will tell but there is a 30 day refund period so I might take advantage of that if I canít sort the issues out in the next week or so.

Theyíre sending me a new screen as tech support was unable to get the current one working. Tried rebooting with new software they provided and itís for a sedan not a truck. Have lost all features now. Trying to get them to send the right software so at least, Iíll have my cameras, navigation, etc. Not sure what happened but whatever it was has caused a catastrophic failure. The new screen should be here in 7-10 days. Giving them one more chance and if it doesnít work, Iíll just get a refund. Super bummed.

Try looking for this exact setup but on the GM trucks. These are pretty popular among the GM crowd and maybe you can find some useful info. This is the first one I've seen on a superduty. Typically people do the iPad swap on these.

Thanks for the link. Iíll check out some of those videos. The Android screen seems to be popular with the F150 crowd too. Pretty sure I just got a DOA/dud unit. The buttons all work if you plug a computer mouse into the USB port and click on the icons.

Well, Iíve decided to pull the plug on the project. What a disaster is all I can say. I put a security deposit down on another screen and sent my defective unit back. Theyíve received my screen but no refund has been issued. Itís been 16 days since theyíve received it so I contacted my credit card company and disputed the charge. I am now in the process of trying to get a refund for the new exchange unit under their ď30 day money back guaranteeĒ as I donít want to chance installing another defective screen.

That's too bad. I was hoping this would work out for you and be an option for others, including myself.
