Does anyone know anything about this one? I just recently ran across it on YouTube. The guy speaking is a little hard to understand because of his accent.

There's already a thread about something similar

There's a bunch of android based stereos out there.
Honestly, I'm happy with the stock unit that came with my FJ. Phone on a wireless charger has all the apps needed, and connects via BT to the stereo.
Now, if you don't have BT or hands-free, that's a different story - these Android units are pretty cheap, and I'm pretty sure that you won't be able to upgrade the OS.
I'd rather go for a more traditional single DIN unit with a storage cubby underneath and have it paired with my phone, which I have with me all the time anyway, and is always up to date. I also don't need another device sucking data...

My ONLY complaint about my FJ is difficulty seeing the dash and stereo displays in the daytime. I usually wear clip on sunglasses in the daytime and if I want to see anything other than the speedometer, I have to take them off. That big full color touch screen looks like it could be a solution.
