Best Android Headunit for the RAV4 2014

Are you looking to replace the Toyota stereo in your RAV4 made between 2013 and 2018?

Then we have chosen our best Android headunit for those RAV4 models made in 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017, and 2018. You could say RAV4 2013-2018.

Why upgrade the factory stereo in a RAV4?

An android headunit has a large screen, ideal for the latest free satnav maps and automatic reversing camera. It is also easy to use DAB+ radio or stream music over Spotify on the headunit unit. Android gives you access to thousands of apps on the Play Store for your RAV4.

What is better?

Better is faster; a slow Android headunit is a frustrating city that must be avoided. Our article will help you toward a fast and enjoyable Android headunit for the RAV4.

Fast comes from having the latest PX6 or at least the previous PX5 processor, and a minimum of 4Gb of RAM will ensure the apps are well-behaved. The Android headunit for the 2013 – 2018 RAV4 reviewed here has the latest PX6 processor and 4GB of RAM.

Custom Fit

A custom fit is a must for the RAV4, which makes the Android headunit a factory-looking install without the need for fascias. But you also get the factory-style connectors to make the installation plug-and-pay. Toyota factory-fitted fitted steering wheel controls will interface directly with the custom fit.

Great Sound

The DSP option ensures the sound from the Android headunit can be adjusted to exactly how you like it. Often overlooked by some, we have included the DSP option in our recommended RAV4 stereo upgrade.


Still, a popular choice for music is CD. The CD/DVD drive is included and is discretely fitted above the screen should you need it.


RGB is another often overlooked feature that helps make your RAV4 Android headunit fit perfectly in the Toyota dashboard at home.

Our Recommendation

Having all the features that make this Android headunit an ideal replacement for the Toyota stereo in a RAV4 2014. This model with a fast PX6 Processor and a great 4 Gb RAM is ideal for a smooth Android experience in the RAV4. We gave it 4 out of 5 stars, but if a CD player is on your must-have list, it will be 4.5 stars.
