Currently have an Avant 2 android unit and its been awesome, until it boot loops this morning.  

That said, heres what i "like" from it.. 

Accepts 32Gb Micro sd card each for files and maps. (huge plus imo)

runs android so any app can be installed. 

Looked at new stuff..

Wtf is android auto? and why is it not full android? 

I never use the "hey google" function on my phone. seems like thats all android auto is?

Edit: Want to keep steering wheel controls, what am i looking for if i go to a headunit that is standard dvd multimedia non wifi??

Maybe this was a stupid question, as 49 views and no recommendations? 

What "product" will it take to make my steering wheel controls work with an aftermarket headunit?

Nobody really uses  android head units around here anyway. Idk maybe Pac or Metra might have steering wheel controls.

Android audio allows you to control your phone through your head unit I believe. I never use it other than trying it out a couple of times.

Thank you for the reply. Im more interested in a nav unit, thats not android. From what ive seen, Android auto is a "assistant" with a boring interface? Please correct me if im wrong!

Can someone give me the pros of android auto?
