I will soon order the following.
I can let you know once I have it. The screen looks better fit inside the plastic shell.
In your picture it looks more like the screen is outside of the shell.

That is the more common 2020 console from my first post



It is the maximum screen space within the console. The second post was the latest attempt with a larger screen that as you point out projects out from the console to expand beyond it's width limits.

Not yet - my Boston system still shines.
Yes to rear camera, top of hatch glass by screen wash. Alternate is the license plate light more for backing up, mine is more for insurance driving.
I used the existing wiring gaskets, dropped the roof lining which is mostly held by lights and handles. You will be routing through the A pillar covers, be careful with those central screw covers. They are a pain to keep in if distorted.
Mine was to a DVR behind my rear view mirror.

I was about to order this for my new (70,000 mi.) 08' Caliber SXT I just bought but there are so many companies that make them. How did you decide on this brand? Am I better off getting a 09 bezel and doing a double din from a trusted audio company like pioneer? I know this will require some wiring harness and other modifications but... are these things reliable and could it brick my car like the gentleman in these forums who couldn't start his car after installing a Chrysler head unit in his girlfriends car for her new subwoofers because of the Anti-theft feature.

Anti-theft issues do not apply to new units that have not been transferred from another vehicle.

The cars are designed by Chrysler for their own head units - expensive so people look for alternatives.

The chinese make all the gear for everyone so it can be a lottery. Android systems get updated frequently so I would treat it like a phone, if you get 4 years out of it you are ahead.

I would not pull out a working system to replace it though.

Modding a workaround for a non-CANBUS system like Pioneer is not comparable. It does involve extra work and cost but some people have got an adequate result (compared to a dead unit).

Well, it's ordered. My '08 came with the stock radio with aux, but no navigation or anything and I really want Bluetooth functionality. I got the exact unit from your first post. I assume a microphone can be connected but it says built-in microphone. These cars are the same electronically throughout the world, right? Says it will connect to factory connectors and if not return or send pics and they will assist. Any advice would be appreciated. It is supposed to arrive in May. Also, do you know if there is any way to install steering wheel controls if my vehicle doesn't have them? I was going to check the junkyard. Thanks for the quick response you are very knowledgeable.

Built-in mic for phone calls or Hey Google & voice controls.
No satellite for the N America only SiriusXM radio. (They are probably all on Android anyway but coverage - mobile STARLINK - still to launch.)
Wiring harness was global & full featured. After a couple of years with export sales slower than hoped Chrysler saved a buck by eliminating the amber blinker circuit for N America.

What do you mean by IF - the buttons are on the back of the wheel unless it's an S/SE. All SXTs had them. Should already be working with the current unit (RTM).

MusicGate was an option on the SXT, standard on R/T.
Leather-wrapped, includes steering wheel audio controls (included with Premium Sound Group)

You will be able to get a used wheel - also look at the Avenger Compass Patriot
The wiring harness should be in place

I don't think aleks has upgraded yet but I love it. And yes it is entirely plug and play on my 08 sxt. I got a 1tb ssd hooked up too for all my lossles flac files. Pretty dope u can do split screen of navigation and youtube or music player. Also has a dsp. The teyes cc3 is a little better and there is tons more info about it on xda developers forum. Pretty much the same unit tho. Thing with the teyes cc3 you wouls have to buy the shroud separately. The unit is the same size but the shroud isn't the right one. Or contact the seller and see if they have the right one. The one on top is the one you need. The one on the bottom is the one it comes with. But this unit is 100% legit no issues at all. U have to do an update to sign into Google tho.

2022 Mach-E / Tesla 3 styling portrait orientation



8gb/128gb Android 10 9.7" $455

For those without EVIC this will optionally give you a similar display



The screen stands in front of the central air vents, but it may have the best aesthetics.

Wow! Nice find. May have to upgrade to this if I can fix these issues with my CaliBrr. Got a link?
Issues I see with this unit:
1. Does not list DSP or even say there is a DSP.
2. Does not list amplifier model
3. Does not list CPU
4. No optical/spdif out and only 1 rca output. No subwoofer output (Teyes and other brands above have)
I have messaged the company. Would also be nice to know if internal mic can be disabled because on the FYT 7862 units it cannot. (Like Teyes, joying, hengcheng picturesld above) this ruins the call quality with external mic connected.

I deliberately exclude seller links as a principle since they expire quickly and we are not endorsing anyone, though personal experience of good service is recommended.

The 'model' I was looking at was Runningnav RT9. It is unclear to me from Chinese 'Brands' such as those you list whether they are seller 'labels' or UI coders on a generic manufacture. Those that are cloned will either be sourced from one or two builders or pirate copies.

The portrait screen is 9.7". The OP like yours is 10.1". The 'upgrade' was 10.25" which maximised the console with the overlap and attached dials. It looked weird and may not have been popular as I can't find it now - I may need to include more link details!

Is the mic issue not as simple as muting it. An external mic will be a separate app/driver. Until you find something else why not just stick a pad over the mic slot? Not everything seems to be shown but much is generic to the Android system or can be downloaded. The TPMS function is available on the landscape models too I found.

The DSP is 36EQ and Amplifier TDA7388. It is an 8 core processor. I assume they all use Mediatek but none specify a version and presumably use whatever is available.

My caution from this initial look is that it seems generic to more modern vehicles and less specific to the disappearing CANBUS Caliber market like the OP.


#6 is the subwoofer,#8 looks like amp control, 1-2 audio in, 3-4 audio out, 5&7 Video in/out

Can't see a Mic input or phone socket so BT?

I would be looking for an Octa-Core with 6/8gb and the 360 cameras.

I have found the Quad-core CPU
