Android Headunits

Is anyone running any of these android headunits? I'm curious on the functionality and quality in them. If they are a 'clean' unit with BT and apps like Torque etc... For $300-$400 they seem like a good deal.

I've watched about 10 vids on these over the last couple weeks and been checking prices/features/etc. About to pull the trigger on one.

I've been looking at some as well on autopumpkin.com seems to be what I'm looking for with WiFi, Bluetooth, navigation ect. But don't know much on them yet so haven't purchased.

I had one, they are packed with features but slow to Boot and only OK at sound quality. Torque will make the deal though.

You have to get the Metra or Sosche kits for that.

I have the sosche kit already with an alpine unit. I'm worried about the fitment of the auto pumpkin etc double dins. As stated torque an full Bluetooth integration is the selling point for me.

http://www.autopumpkin.com/new-produ...port-obd2.html this is the one I'm looking into. But I also found it on Amazon and review said it's a tiny bit bigger than 6.2 and you have to trim the trim.

Those are the two models I have on my list. My only concern is if it will fit in the Scosche dashkit without it looking tacky or with modification.

The head unit came in. Still waiting on the scoshe dash kit, it's on a different truck but should be here today. If it's here soon enough I'll attempt to get everything updated and installed today

Everything is here. Won't be installing today, the scoshe kit is going to have to be trimmed (as I had heard) I'm trying to figure out how I want to tackle this. I need to trim off about 1/8 on each side. Was thinking of using a dremel, but it's hard to get my self to cut into a $270 piece of plastic.

You guys have just officially BLOWN MY 'EFFIN MIND!
I have the metra kit already with a pioneer touchscreen and have been thinking of upgrading to the new pioneer with the Andriod interface but once you guys upload your pics and opinions I may be giving Pumpkin this cash. Can't wait for the results
