This has bee brought to my attention by Catman. Naughty lad, I'm intrigued.
Seems to have been popular as a replacement for the NIT and screen in the USA, but not sure here. It doesn't even seem to need a realignment and CANBus functions remain.
Has anyone in the UK installed one of these?

There's a video taken from the MaseratiLife forum, where Robin seemed to pioneer the way. There are plenty installation videos, and this one just demonstrates the functionality.

Has anyone any experience? If so could you please dissuade me?

If you have lots of apps open when the ignition is off does it keep drawing current to keep them open in the background I wonder?

Flat battery city.

I have an Android 8.1 Octa-Core Head Unit with 4GB RAM and 64GB Storage, made by a company called Joying. It has wireless Apple CarPlay and works really well. It’s a generic single-DIN unit rather than something custom for a specific car though.

I'm probably about to order one of these, to include DAB, OBD2 reader, display and rear cameras:-
75532

Price for the RHD 9 inch head unit is 1300usd. Dab 30USD , OBD 22USD .
Express shipping cost is free. However tax free shipping we will add 65usd . "If you can gather 3-5 orders we can provide free tax free shipping to you as well"

It's been very successful in the USA
There's a climate control is 800usd as well which I'm not bothering with as that's just a cosmetic enhancement

Does anyone wish to join me, or shall I be the lone pioneer?

Just installed mine ... really like it ... just one issue that when I use CarPlay the music only comes through the front speakers weirdly?

Well I'm Cotswolds off the beaten track between the Slaughters the Guitings and Snowsill. I'd be very pleased to pop down to Bristol

I think that looks better than the oem bodge job they did on the later cars!

"Well, anyhoo, I'm going to do this informative video where the first 2 minutes is me faffing around and telling you what the temperature is here, and round about minute 4 I'm gonna set my camera up a bit better..." Grrrr

Contact Robin via FB or MaseratiLife - he is the man on this unit
Thanks yes I've been in contact with Robin as I ordered through him anyway ... he's put me in contact with Eric ... have dropped Eric a message ... so fingers crossed.

Agree Mark. It detracts from an otherwise promising unit. But it seems quite common to faff and waffle in these youtoon videos.

Did you resolve this in the end? I would want mine mainly for CarPlay.
