CarTrimHome Android 9 Audio Replacement?

I found this guy when looking into an unrelated pro replica grill inquiry.

It appears to be a direct plug and play swap based on the pictures. Anyone already purchased one of these? Im curious if the steering controls still work? No Apple Play but anything would be a step above the Entune.

I do have a connection over at CarTrim but I wanted an unbiased opinion from someone external to the company on how these perform. If there is enough interest, I can work on a group buy price to see how low we can get them.

No experience with the unit. But, if I was an android user and if I had a 4runner - I'd definitely be interested in that. I'm waiting on the 2020's.

Interesting. I does come with iDatalink which helps rationalize the price.

Yeah, what I like about this CarTrim one is that it looks, to me at least, like an OEM unit. But I dont want to dump that much money into something that freezes or is not technologically advanced. Plus, Im an Apple/iPhone guy so I dont know how that would mess with this given that its Android.

It does retain steering wheel functions and backup camera.
RETAINS VEHICLE INFORMATION
The iLX-F309FRN comes with an iDatalink Maestro Module to retain 4Runner features like the vehicle cluster sub-display and steering wheel controls. Other vehicle information such as tire pressure readings, open door alerts, and vehicle vitals are viewable on the large screen. The iDatalink Maestro Module is already pre-programmed for the 4Runner, so you dont need to configure the module to your truck before installing it.

There was a decently large thread on this on one of the T4R groups on Facebook. One user said he purchased it and said that the RAM was unbearably low for the unit. Meaning slow, unresponsive, and freezing. He said that if the unit had more on board RAM it would be definitely worth it. Also mentioned that they are actually due to release an updated version, for a higher cost with higher specs that people would likely be more interested in. I'd wait up and see when these come to market and how well they do before pulling the trigger, especially with a newer version coming out in a few months.
