I was planning to eventually get a Pioneer app radio for mine if I do decide to upgrade. You can get a pioneer unit for around the same price, it doesnt run android but its compatible with the phone and lets you control it and the apps. They are releasing a new unit soon that runs the Android Auto platform too.
These are the same units sold on ebay by multiple vendors, and they all get their stock from the same place. You just need to read carefully as to which OS they are running. Some units are running an older OS and the radio itself does not have the updated specs. Payment was still made through paypal and by the vast reviews and updates on these radios I am not expecting a problem. I received email confirmation that the order is ready to ship over the weekend and waiting on a DHL tracking number.
As far as price, I have yet to see a pioneer unit around the same price that does what I am looking for it to do. And the new NEX models I saw that are going to be releasing this year are running between $700-1400, and all those units are a pass-through from your phone, unless I missed one. I have to believe that is one of the reasons these are costing so much, instead of running the radios own OS they want to directly mirror a phones screen.
Went to the old pick and grab to look for the double din dash bezel. Found one, but whoever took it out broke it to probably get the switches as they were missing. I have a few CL people to call tomorrow that are parting out vehicles so hopefully I can find one real quick.
