Phoenix Automotive Android head unit

Hey guys... I ran across this company making pretty cool android head units for all kinds of cars. They donít make one for our truck because they havenít had enough people asking for it.
They sent me a link to request they make one for our 4runner and theyíll make one if they see enough demand.

Head here and request one!

Product requests – Phoenix Android Radios

Hereís their Instagram so you can see the type of units they make

I know there the t9 android units out there and they look pretty nice and oem... but also have enough bugs that I want to see what else some other company will come up with. These guys are right here in the States and are pretty quick to respond to messages and questions .

Add me to the interested list for now. Still eyeballing the Alpine Halo 9. I'm pretty sure the GX crowd is pretty happy with their Phoenix units.

That GX setup looks dope, although I kind of like the big chunky AC controls we get, so I'm not sure I'd want them integrated into a display.

The thing I don't like about the T9, once the bugs are worked out, is the loss of features from OEM. It's not like the OEM is setting a high bar, so when I can't run waze through car play and listen to local radio, then what's the upside??? Plus no XM without external hacks... no I don't want to use my phone if I'm in the middle of nowhere I will probably have satellite, but no cell.

It would also be nice if they added a few fun off-road features (water fording depth measurements, ground clearance/forward facing cameras, etc.).

We can dream!

Hopefully they come up with something. Thanks for the info, I put in a request.

They're not doing anything special, they're just re-selling the same units that everyone else is. Maybe they have better customer service? Either way they're not actually doing any R&D or manufacturing any of the head units

They replied that it's in the works. Updates on their FB page

It's been completed:

Car Trim Home: Free Shipping 9" Android 8.1 T9 4+64G Car Multimedia Stereo Radio Audio DVD GPS Navigation Sat Nav Head Unit for Toyota 4Runner 2014-2019

Rhino Radios: Toyota 4Runner 2010 - 2019 9" Android Radio – Rhino Radios

The radio that Phoenix produces will be no different. Their definition of "in the works" means they're looking for a supplier, that's all.
