Tesla Style 10" Screen

See a lot of YouTube videos showing this, but from like Chinese countries or whatnot. No real installation guides or anything. Has anyone thought of trying one of these? I'd be mainly interested in it for the purpose of running Waze or other Android applications.

Here's a pretty simple video, but just shows them using it. Seems very cool. Would love to have Waze on that screen lol.

I see several variants on eBay. They have a smaller 4.4" version and the full vertical 10.4" screen. Looks to be between $300-500. I just figure, that dang LockPick tool costs almost $400, so I'd rather dump my money on something like this. But it doesnt look like anyone here in the forum has tried it.

Yeah I'm seeing that as well. They all seem light on details.

You could always lead the way. Pick one up and tell us how it goes.

Yea I'm thinking I may do that lol. I'm pretty technically inclined, but the Focus is a new breed of machine for me (coming from a Dodge Neon lol). Only thing I'm curious to find out is how it's matched to the climate control, open doors, and steering wheel controls.

I haven't been able to find any kind of user guide or install manual. I never used sync for climate control, but I wouldn't want to lose the steering wheel controls.

So, doing a general Google search for Tesla Style radio installs, it seems that other forums are in the same boat as far as "no instructions" anywhere.

Anyway, when I'm in the budget for it I'm definitely going to give it a try. Will definitely be exciting, and I'll definitely do some sort of write up for it :)

There is some info in the sync/audio part of the forum. Like this thread: http://www.focusfanatics.com/forum/c...oid-radio.html

Most dealers have several pictures of the unit and installation process. The funny thing is that it's usually several different looking HU's in the pictures. Which one will you get? Possibly something else entirely. Funny stuff.

It seems that some people consider it important that the sync hardware is compatible with Android HU. If compatible the Android HU can make use of stuff like the sync mic which is usually a lot better (and better positioned) than the one in the Android HU.

I'm going to purchase one that look pretty integrated. I don't like those that look like a 10" tablet stuck on top of the dash.

Looking for something like this:
