    I'd like to use Android Auto in a 2005 Acura RL but it won't accept an aftermarket stereo. Is there any way to use Android Auto, or anything similar, in a car that won't accept an aftermarket stereo? Can an Android phone be set up to act like an Android Auto unit if mounted on a dash holder?

    Who says you can't just yank out the stereo and install a new one that is android auto enabled?

    Acura is actually Honda isn't it? Doesn't it use a standard DIN or double-DIN sized head unit?

    Crutchfield says that none of the many that they offer will fit. Can you suggest one?

    For reference, is this the Acura RL head unit that's fitted at the moment?

    The actual unit looks like a standard double-DIN, but looks like the fascia and fixings could be a problem, if there no aftermarket ones that suit.

    I'm not familiar with Acura cars of course, so can't help much more.
