    Question Head Unit Recommendation

    Hey everyone,

    I'm new to the forum, but have owned my 2015 Mirage DE for about 6 months now.

    I am looking to upgrade the stereo / infotainment system of the car (speakers, amp, bass coming later) and wanted to know if anyone is using an Android based head unit? My budget is about $150, which I know means off brand/Chinese stuff, but I am okay with that as long as it works okay.

    I'd prefer any links from Amazon as I have a bunch of credit card rewards points. I did a search and am looking at this model: https://www.amazon.com/Boddenly-Andr...roid+head+unit

    I wanted to get some feedback on it or see if you guys can recommend anything else. I already ordered the replacement bezel and wiring harness as well.... is there anything else I need to order to install the new head unit?

    Hey Top_Fuel, I saw that thread before I posted. Those look great, but are kinda out of my price range.

    MightyMirageMpg - That head unit looks awesome, but I'm looking for something that is Android based if possible... Thanks for the suggestion tho, hopefully it'll help someone else out.

    I would upgrade the speakers first to improve the sound quality.

    Upgrading the speakers is next, after the head unit. Then its a amp/sub, but not sure what I am going to get yet.

    Any recommendations on speakers?

    I ended up ordering an ATOTO M4272 (17397/32G) Android head unit from Amazon. Its got some decent reviews and is at a decent enough price that if its not exactly what I am looking for, its not going to be a big deal. It also fits the Metra replacement surround without having to sand it down. I had about $50 in Amazon reward points, which made it more affordable.

    I should be receiving it Friday and will install it this weekend.

    Any link to the radio? It would help to read more about it.

    Go with some nice alpine speakers. Clean sound. Stay away from pioneer as it may be a downgrade ha
