Recommendations for android mirror link head unit?

Recommended Posts

I'm looking for some recommendations for a somewhat specific head unit. I use google maps on my phone ALOT and the screen on my phone has begun to "burn in" and in order to prevent future damage I am looking for a head unit that supports mirror link to android (galaxy s8 active). It must be a single din unit that flips upward due to the dash (2019 kenworth t-680 semi). The google maps app is used on my phone nearly 6 days a week for 12+ hours a day for the most part.


1- Single DIN unit

2- Motorized Flip UPWARDS

3- Auxiliary Input.


Now this is all new technology to me. From my understanding I can turn the phones screen completely off and continue to view, and interact with the app (google maps) through the radio touchscreen. If I am misunderstanding this tech and not able to turn my phone screen off then It won't help, and I will need to find another alternative. Price is my most important factor as I'm only wanting to prevent destroying the phone, and if the radio costs what the phone is worth then I again might as well continue to burn my phone screen.


I greatly appreciate all advice from everyone much!

      Hi all, first time poster here. So i've been out of the car audio loop for a while, my Clarion DXZ835MP is finally dying on me after 10 years or so, so I'm looking at getting a new stereo. Now I've been looking specifically at the Kenwood KIV-700, but then got to thinking about all the inexpensive android tablets out there. So here's my questions:
      If i were to purchase a tablet that had line out(headphone jack i would assume work), would I be able to just purchase an equalizer with an auxillary in and run my speakers & subs from the eq?
      Thanks in advance!

      I too want an Android-based Head Unit, thank goodness Pioneer is doing it first. Better than that crap that Parrot is putting out IMO.
      apparently I can't post links (either b/c i'm a new member or else no one can). This is not an advertisement, i'm just trying to show that the product is legitimate via YouTube

      Hi, I have a DEH P9400BH head unit and I really like the Advanced Sound Retriever function for mp3's. A caveat is that it can only be used for USB connected devices it seems. When I stream from bluetooth the mp3's aren't as nice sounding as from the flash drive.
      Does anyone know if there is a similar type of app I can install on my Android device that does this? I assume some sort of DSP function would work, but from what I can tell, most of those are pay apps, is there one that is free?
