it's another android headunit, but a different chipset and different manufacturer so worth seeing if the fit and finish is any better

Interested to see how it works. From what I've seen, many of the currenty ones are not made for 10-13.

I like this one particularly because it maintains the big physical knobs for volume and doesnít inhibit my A/C vents.

I just hope they don't try to buy out and bribe reviewers and influencers to give favorable reviews the same way Car Trim did with the T8/9 units. I somehow doubt it though, seems like the modus operandi of these companies.

Like the OP?

"I'm in contact with" and "securing a test unit" all generally mean they're a product pusher.

Trail4Runner generally has OK reviews for details, but they're very clearly trying to push product as well. TRDJon on YouTube also does good reviews, but I believe he sells product as well.

Best this to do is wait for reviews from people who BUY THE UNITS to be posted on the forums. If they make these for 10-13 and they're in the same ballpark price (under $600) I may consider picking one up.

@OP -

If you're "in contact with" them, make sure they support 10-13 and 14+. They will lose a lot of potential sales if they don't.

Any chance they will work on getting the black finish to be a better match than the T9? I know I could paint but it's been one of the items keeping me from trying out a unit.

I have had really good luck with pioneer... which supports android/apply, and can be found for under 1000... why risk it?

I assume you are talking about the guys that support the CTH T9, why would you not buy from them if itís coming from CTH anyway? I think having a ďmiddlemanĒ makes tons of sense here considering the language barrier and timezone issues associated with dealing with China directly. These guys generally offer a discount too, and frankly it comes with some amazing support over on the facebook group. Probably the best support Iíve ever had for any product Iíve ever bought. I cracked a screen during install (my fault) on a sunday and within a few hours they gave me a big discount on a replacement and covered DHL shipping and I had it in 3 days. They have answered other questions in a matter of minutes.

Iím extremely impressed with the T9. Once you realize the full possibilities of having a powerful, huge android tablet with a sim card in your dash for $500, youíll wonder why you ever considered a $1000 pioneer. I used to have a $700 iPad pro mounted in my truck hooked up to a $100 GPS unit, hooked up to a $100 mount, all pretty much just to run Gaia. Now I just install the Gaia app and done. Not to mention, you can use the sharkfin as a GPS antenna for awesome reception.
