i doubt very much it'd get an os update pushed to it.

only other option is rooting and putting a custom rom on it. That's if there is support from the dev community to root and rom the thing.

Generic Chinese Android car stereos are becoming fairly common now. The USB slot and SD-card slots are really intended for you to play your MP3s, either from a USB thumb drive or an SD-card.

For any chance of a software update you'd have to find the manufacturer's website, if they have one. I don't think there's any community developed ROMs for these things yet.

2.2 is pretty old, unlikely the hardware is even up to spec for it--especially for a device selling new with such an old version.
