So far, my search has been unsuccessful, as it seems everyone has fallen victim to Steve Jobbs' attempt to brainwashing everyone into thinking Apple products are gold, and only Apple products should be supported on car audio devices. So, my question is, does anyone know where said car stereo can be found, if there even is such a thing yet? Any help on this is greatly appreciated.
That's the United States. Whereas here in China, Android car systems are actually becoming very popular, both factory fitted and after-market systems. Probably because iOS devices can be expensive luxuries, and Android has become rather ubiquitous here.

Here's a couple of examples...
Knight Rider - 7 Inch Android 2.3 Car DVD with 3G Internet (WiFi, GPS, DVB-T) - China Android Car Dvd,Car Dvd Player with 3g
7 Inch 2 DIN WiFi 3G Android 2.3/4.0 Car DVD Player for Toyota Prada with GPS etc. (FLY-TYT-P) - China Android Car Dvd Player for Toyota,Android Car Gps for Toyota Prado

BTW if anyone has an iOS compatible ICE ("Designed for iPhone"), that uses the 30-pin Dock connector, better hope it's compatible with the new iPhone 5 Lighting adapter. Apparently some existing car systems don't work with it, e.g. BMW.
