    "This in-dash receiver is really expensive (I won't even mention how much I spent for it, including installation) but I think it's the best auto head unit one can purchase if you're after all the best possible features. It's user-friendly, the touchscreen is very responsive, it connects seamlessly to both my Android smartphone and iPod and the sound quality is excellent (I hooked it up with a BOSE stereo system). You really get your money's worth. "

    "The Sony XAV-AX100 has a very simple, uncluttered user interface and I really love the exterior's sleek design with the analog navigation knob (Sony products always look great). It's affordable compared to other android auto head units - I got mine for $260 - and the Apple CarPlay runs flawlessly. It doesn't have a CD drive but who still uses CDs anyway? ❤️️"

    "I bought this to replace my old Alpine car head unit because the Bluetooth connectivity was glitchy AF. So far so good. It's simple to use, and the retractable screen is cool. I hooked up a rearview camera to it and it works well. And it made my cheap a*s car stereo sound good. Very satisfied! 👍"

    " I bought this for my wife's Toyota because she didn't like the built-in head unit. It was super easy to install and hooking it up to my family's phones using Apple CarPlay was a breeze. Possibly the best Android wireless auto head unit I've purchased. I think I'm gonna buy another one for my other car. "

    "The touchscreen is very responsive unlike my old head unit and I think my Boss BVCP9675A actually enhanced the audio quality of my car's stereo. Apple Play runs smoothly, as well as Waze and other apps. At less than $300 it's probably one of the cheapest android auto head units available in the market but its quality is top-notch. "

    "Excellent carplay head unit for such a low price point. Superior stereo system and has lots of features I didn't know I wanted! The only drawback is it took me a while to finish installing it but it has been running smoothly since so I'm actually just nit-picking. "
