Cheapest price I have ever seen for an Apple CarPlay unit. On eBay, used units are going for $400+.
Why is CarPlay fantastic? No Firmware upgrades needed. Ever. Upgrade your iOS device, get CarPlay upgrades included!

NOT compatible with Android Auto. But has MirrorLink.
PS: CarPlay is wired (lightning cable).

Add carplay to your car.

All you need is:
- A CarPlay unit (this one for example)
- A Metra wiring kit ($5 on amazon)
- A Dash Kit (for esthetics). $10-$30 for most car models. (can be $200+ for a few exceptions).
- Some Plastic Pullers Trim Removal Tools ($5 on amazon)
- 2h of your time

MSRP $599.

4 stars on amazon:

How does this interface with android? Would I be able to view Google maps from my phone with Mirror Link?

Thanks for the suggestion. Added it to the post.

The link was actually included (you can see it when clicking on "see deal").

Upromise is offering 5% CB at Abt. Some other CB sites as well, but none of the big names have as high a percentage.

Just an FYI to consider all options. I just ordered an android 5.1 system double din 7" screen stereo specifically made for my car for around this price. It can mirror link or I can just download any apps from play store directly into it (through wifi). Search 'android stereo' on Amazon or add your model in front of search for car a specific versions so it comes with wiring harness/custom panel. All generally same hardware/software from China. Read reviews and make sure it works out for your car or buy generic with dash/harness kit as per OP's comments.

That's an interesting idea, thanks. In the past I've always been leery about those Chinese-company in-dash units, but they seem to have reached mainstream. I still ordered the Pioneer, but I may get one of those other units for our Camry.

Doesn't Discover now force you to use their card through the portal? I prefer to make all my electronics purchases through Amex due to their pain-free extended warranty.

Thank you for this idea. I just ordered a set under Volsmart brand on Amazon.com. Hopefully it works well. BTW do you have any recommendations for a unit for Corolla 2007?

I stick to the 'Joying' brand, I think that's the one with the least quirks from what others have said. A lot of discussion on these chinese android stereos over at xda developers:
