Heh. I put in a "Joying" a couple years back, and it's not great, mostly due to it only having low memory and a slow-ish processor. But that was at a time when nobody else was doing android. It runs apps, has low touch latency, gps, and a couple SD slots. It checks a lot of boxes, but I suspect I'll be replacing it this season.
I've heard decent reviews of the modern crop of these Chinese Android units, particularly the "atoto," which claims to use a higher quality amplifier circuit than mine has.
If you've got the money, I'd look seriously at one of the mainstream brands, most of which have an "Android Auto" option on the market now.
If you go that way, I'm very curious to see the results. I've noticed quite a few of these "floating" units on the market lately. Personally, I'm not convinced I'll like the look. But as far as I know, nobody's attempted to install one in a Mark yet.
Please do keep us posted!
That sounds great! I'm glad to hear Best Buy took care of things for you too, that's a hard thing to prove. The wiring didn't give you any trouble?
I'd also be curious how the screen dimmer works. While driving at night, I prefer to have everything as dim as possible to help focus on the road. These big touchscreens can emit a lot of light.
Best buy sold you a used head unit?
