C-HR Head Unit

I will be interested in seeing if the app suddenly works on my phone. In reality in this modern world a standard Android Operating System with direct access to the app store would provide the best user experience and save Toyota a lot of dollars on custom app development.

What does a modern car really need?

A touch screen of decent size and resolution

Octacore processing chip

16/128GB internal memory + expansion options 

Connectivity - Bluetooth and USB

amplifier / speaker driver

A screen link app

Prefered built in:

DAB+ receiver

Video decoder 

GPS receiver

3G or 4G connectivity

Telephone SIM for independent data and dialing

XYZ axis information

Direct Connection to the vehicle CAN Bus

Software app developer interface port

Lol Chitty..

At least you know they didn't dump an old head unit in your car

Part of the problem is they designed the trim differently for the Aussie models ( and maybe US as they get a 7")

You can see the ghosted pic of a flipped Aussie dash I have overlaid on the Euro Model below

we are being dicked on some millimetres

The difference would be enough for an 8" unit to not overlap anywhere. :(

Well I've gone and done it, placed my order with Ryda dot com.  They are running a %20 off promo code via eBay.  Getting the Kenwood DDX917WS and also splashed on the Dash Cam DRV-N520.  Funnily enough you can't get this offer in their physical location in St Peters, you have to go via eBay and must pay with PayPal. 

I also now need to source the adapters which can be had for much cheaper overseas, plus raid/borrow some tools off the folks.  Pretty excited, a little daunted, but happy I pulled the trigger after much debate.

Cool, I'm still procrastinating but keep coming back to the Joying. My search continues for a solution that is a perfect fit.

Keep us informed as you go.
