10.1 Android Headunit Install
Have seen some questions about android head units and thought I'd share my experience installing a Xtrons system...
I chose the the TR-100 model which is a bit of a Alpine Halo type of design where a 10.1 tablet comes out from the dash. The screen is adjustable and fits nice on the console. The unit is a single din and I got a cheap dash kit of of Ebay with a standard chrysler/jeep harness. I added a micro SD card for offline maps, a USB thumbnail for my MP3s and a mobile wifi modem for data (was 'more or less' free with my shared data plan from my mobile provider). I also installed a bluetooth OBD2 adapter so I can use the full Torque app.
The install was mostly painless and I could not be happier with the results. You can choose what Nav program is your default and I am using "Offline Maps & Navigation" which has been excellent. The radio, bluetooth and music apps are all fine. I installed the Sirius XM app for satellite radio as well as Amazon Music and Spotify - both work fine.
My only issue has been setting up the steering wheel controls -- I need to figure out the right harness/adapter for chrysler/jeep which seem to have 2 SWC wires that need to connect to key1 and key2 wires on the head unit.
Sorry the pics are not great. :-)
