Touch Screen HU with apps enabled function

20 posts in this topic

Are there any HU that have apps enabled function built in?

 

I think I ever saw a car with the HKS OBD link carscope displayed on the HU... But tat can only work with an android enabled device so I assume the HU is app enabled? Sorry novice on ICE... thanks!

I think for the HKS one is video into the HU.

For App (Android) the only model is Pioneer AppRadio as far as I know and SG don't sell.

I've never tried the new Pioneer AppRadio with iPHones.

Ok. I went ahead and shipped in the SPH-DA100 from overseas.

For those who screams: "US Radio cannot take FM channels here!" Don't worry. Buy it. Install it and download the UK firmware. Flash it.

Voila. it works.

Then go get a decent Android phone. Like a Xperia Z or a HTC. Root it.

Then.. you can do wonderful things with it like... CONTROL the entire phone from your 7" HU.

So if your phone can do it.. your Head Unit can DO it too.

1) Google Nav

2) Listen to radio while doing it.

3) Reverse Cam

4) BT phone

Access everything on your phone e.g. whatsapp and cause a deadly accident.

How much did you pay for the HU?

The actual price depends on yourluck and exchange rate. You need to purchase the head unit, the android cable and a micro bypass.

Should set you back about $600-700 with shipping but no installation depending.
