Reminds me of the Havis system but missing a 0 in the price!

My first concern with this would be Android 6 - Marshmallow as released like in 2015?

For my comfort level I would only consider the latest Android OS which is 8.

I like the idea of the Tesla screen - but knowing how finicky these things tend to be be, I'd be more comfortable with dedicated buttons for my AC/Heat like this unit http://www.carnaviplayer.com/aftermarke ... 2017-p-894

they all seem to come up when you do a Google search for "Ford, Taurus, head unit, radio"

based on the stereo shops i've been to around here they say there are no aftermarket faceplates/kits for 2013-2017 Ford Taurus mainly because these mfgs are tired of Ford changing the console design every few years.

I was told the same thing and couldn’t personally find a dash kit. Once i saw the Chinese screen on your other post, I was sold on it. I like the other one better than this one because it plays cds and dvds.

You could use the app on the device?
