Thanks for the reply. So, I"ll look for a radio made for Toytas. Sounds like Bestfit website has a faceplate that fits the JBL system well. Right?

I am wondering if I need to hook up a park sensing wire or ground it somewhere? Thoughts? The install manual was pretty lacking on what additional wires needed to be hooked up.

Also, how do you initiate AndroidAuto?

Thanks!

I'll let you guys know how it works out- https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07F84ZMCG

If you want to go down the rabbit hole- PX5 MTCD/E Head Unit Discussion Thread [Rock… | Android Auto

Update- Installed the unit. So this issue was actually my fault but I will leave this info here for you folks.Major issue is the DVD player seems DOA. I have a replacement on the way from amazon and put an email in with xtrons. Takes the disk but it does not spin. Ejects fine. . So, I'm an idiot. There are 2 screws on the top of the unit that are used to secure the optical drive. I failed to remove these even though there is a giant yellow sticker that tells you too. Probably should have been more sober, whoops.

Attached are photos of the install. No splicing needed. It is plug and play and fits perfectly. Looks stock esp with the toyota logo on startup
Wifi, bluetooth, work good. You can change button color to match stock, or any other color. Unit boots fast (20-30 seconds)and has a 1 hour sleep mode to make reboot instant on subsequent starts. Steering controls work. You can map them with short press and long press functions. Still need to test stock AUX. Google maps looks good, will test tomorrow. Built in mic seems good. I called someone and they said the clarity was fine. Google assistant works fine. You can use all the normal apps youtube, pandora, play store. The screen resolution is 800x480 which is lower than advertised (correct resolution is listed on xtrons website, but not on amazon.), but still looks good. Resolution is equal to the high end pioneers. Sound seems the same or better than stock. Still messing around with stuff, but it looks promising.


Overall initial impressions:

Pros-
Looks stock without those cheesy side panels and is unbranded on the front
100% Plug and Play
Layout and functionality is 100% customizable
Touch screen looks awesome and is very responsive
Unit is fast
Looks and feels quality
Xtrons customer support was fast and effective

Cons-

Untested longevity
Sound quality probably isn't on par with the $500+ units
Not exactly cheap

Overall I am really happy with it so far!
I wonder if there is a way to make it carplay instead of android

Hey...I was able to answer my own question! You don't have to wire anything, you just need to go into Settings and Turn it on.

So are you saying from that menu system, you're able to play YouTube videos while you're driving? I thought Android Auto doesn't allow that while driving unless you hack it?

I recently installed this 2 weeks and I love it! I don't know if it came with Apple CarPlay or Android Auto, but I'm pretty sure you're supposed to buy a plug-in to where it can work and that's what I did.

Yes, that is correct. It's not hacked, it's just an android unit.

I like to watch all sorts of stuff while I'm driving. Looking at the highway gets boring.







It's for the passengers, or when you are parked....

Is this really compatible with the XTRONS head unit we have? There's a link for Android 8.0, the one you linked is for 6.0.1

I like the look of that Xtrons unit but have the JBL system. Would it still be plug and play with the steering wheel controls on a JBL equipped 4runner (are the wheel control plugs different?)? If they are the same, then I think all I should need to make the Xtrons work would be one of the adapters that make it communicate with the JBL amp.

The xtrons px5 does support CarPlay if you buy one of the android CarPlay dongles on Amazon. That’s what I have in mine, works great.

I really do not know about this, try contacting their customer support. They were pretty fast getting back to me.
