    Looks like finally there is an option to update the crappy 4th gen headunit with a real android unit. I wasn't able to find more information about it, but looks like it is installed enabling the AV input, and original headunit system can be used at the same time. It doesn't have top of the line specs, or even a recent android version, but at least it looks like there is an option.

    Android 4.4 5.1 GPS Navigation Box for Toyota Prius 2016 4th Gen video interface WiFi Waze Youtube Pioneer Unit-in Vehicle GPS from Automobiles & Motorcycles on Aliexpress.com | Alibaba Group Available on Aliexpress for Prius 4th gen / Sienna 2015+

    Have any of you tested it, or know about any other solution to have real android in our 4gen prius instead the mirror link with no touch screen input? Any volunteer ready to pull the trigger and let us know how it goes?

    Good to know, thanks. (y)
    If mine wasn't nearly hallway through a rental contract I might jump at this. @raspy in London may be interested.

    I'm going to say that that unit has a lot of additional antennas/inputs which makes me think it is a full on replacement. Not sure how well it would integrate the existing backup camera or steering wheel inputs. I'm not brave enough to drop the money to test it out, but I would like to know the results if someone does. Its killing me I can't do android auto when my coworkers base model GMC Sierra has both android auto and apple carplay built in!
