    Does anyone know of a compatible Double Din Touch Screen that is compatible with our phones?

    I'm really looking for on screen control and will play movies from my phone, but I am starting to think there is't one. So at least one that is fully bluetooth compatible for streaming audio.

    I've been googling since yesterday and have had little luck with results. :thinking:
    Thanks,
    JC

    No problem. I was trying to find the Phandroid article that was posted, where they actually tested show models out at one of the conventions (can't remember which one), but couldn't find it.

    I know there are other companies that do have some sort of Android integration, but this is the first with mirroring. If my car system weren't such a PITA to upgrade components on, I'd probably consider this one.

    Nice that it doesn't look cheap like so many aftermarket stereos.

    I remember reading about some Android based HUs as well. However I would rather have the HU be able to access/control the phone, given that it would be "safer" than trying to manage a phone, while looking at the HU, while driving. I can do that now with my Nokia n900, and 5 year old Pioneer AVIC, but the hard/dangerous part is doing everything on the phone.

    Being able to view/control Google maps, let alone Sling or Vulkano apps, on the HU itself would be nice, even if the screen is only 1/2 an inch larger.

    My Honda Pilot, which has an Alpine system, works very well. I see song titles, artist name, etc. on the screen when using Google Music. That said, when I use Rdio I don't see them--I see the old info from Google Music, LOL. Sounds fantastic, though, and range is easily 30 meters.

    Sony XAV-601BT works if you side load the Samsung Drivelink app. You will need the drivelink app for any mirror link enabled HUs. That being said. The Sony Interface is kinda crappy. It works, but is very cumbersome. I only use it when i want to navigate.

    Oh so you're streaming via BlueTooth and it sends the id3 tags as well? That's pretty cool. I'd love one that did that and also sent the album art.
