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

I'd do it if it supported Sirius.

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?

I just installed this Tesla radio. For the most part it’s great, however there is no SIM card option available so you have to use your phone as a WiFi hotspot. And there is no way to activate rear defrost. Besides that it is awesome and far cheaper than the only other way more expensive option.

Awesome! Any chance you could share a couple of pics?

That's weird about the rear defroster...
