The Double DIN body mounts into the dashboard, but the vertical, portrait screen gives that Tesla feel.
The portrait-style Android screen has become synonymous with the Tesla brand of cars. But the portrait Android is used daily when you hold your phone in your hand, and portrait is a more natural way for Android to display phone apps. Unfortunately, the number of Android head unit car portrait compatible launchers is limited. But if you like the look of the factory launcher, then it is all good, and you can run with that.
The finished installation looks more complicated than it is. The body of the android headunit is a standard double DIN fitting with a shallow back. This configuration is ideal for most vehicles; the screen protrudes up and into your view. The unit is a universal fit, so no CAN bus decoder is required, just the usual factory-to-ISO adaptors for an almost plug-and-play install.
The specifications are the most important thing to check after choosing the tesla style screen.
Pick the A3 model with 8 Cores (8x 2.5 GHz) and 4 GB RAM for the best performance. Anything less will disappoint due to its slower speed. Avoid the A1 and A2 versions of this Tesla-style Android screen.
Colors! These Tesla-style Android screens come in various colors to match the interior for a fresh look.
360° camera onboard
In true Tesla style, the A3 version includes the processing power for a 360° camera view. This very useful feature fits perfectly with the portrait screen—a real upgrade to your reversing camera.
An uncommon yet very useful feature in this Android headunit with a tesla style screen is the 4G SIM card slot. Data is a big thing for Android headunits, and its own dedicated SIM card slot is ideal when matched to a Data SIM.
