I was exited to find a dedicated mirage forum. I'm about to get my new Mitsubish Space Star in 6 days and for the past mouth I've done a long research to get a ultimate multimedia system for my car.
I'm looking for a fast Android device with 3G(support), heigh resolution screen and most importantly good audio quality.
Having the option to install apps like Spotify, Rdio, Waze and using the Google Maps app for navigation will give me everything I want in a multimedia system, It is also a huge advantage to have BT for hands free calls, reverse sensors and other features.
Unfortunately in my country it is illegal to install android multimedia in cars so all official audio shops will not provide this head units and I will have to self import it myself.
The only units I found that combine what I'm looking for are China made devices and they all appear to be low end devices, Amazon reviews sometimes contains complaints about audio quality and most common complaint are about the screen not being dimmed for night driving.
Also most of this systems are not standard DDIN size and that makes it difficult to find an appropriate installation KIT, Local Audio shops charge $300 for an original KIT.
I wander if anyone have any knowledge to share here.
Here are some links to what I found online:
Android Multimedia 2DIN size
1. the following one support 32GB SD, Low resolution screen and overall nice design. it is 110mmX178mm non standard DDIN size. cost $309
2. this unite has nice screen resolution, it's should be a fast unit, has only 1GB ram (like most), 8GB rom. Couldn't find the actual size of the unit and amp info. cost $400
3. The following 2 units are the ones I actually considering, It would be nice to know if the sound quality is good

Here I'm not sure what I need,
There this thing that comes as one piece:
And the regular one:
I contacted the seller on ebay and asked what is the supported size, he replied Standard 2din.
I believe standard is 100x180mm, non of the systems above is 180x100mm it's more like 178x110 or 176x98mm
What should I do, can someone make sense of it all?
I'll keep updates here as I move forward with purchasing a device and will post photos of the instillation process.
