Requirements

I aim to include the following:

  • Android 4.0
  • GPS
  • WiFi
  • OBD-II Scanning
  • Fits in a Double-DIN slot
  • At least 8GB of flash storage (only holding music, not movies)
  • AM/FM radio (probably)
  • Hooks up to all the car audio
  • Multitouch screen
  • If possible, powered by an always-hot wire, but with a hookup to put it into sleep/shutdown when the ignition is turned off

Budget is $500, not including some parts specific to the RX-8.  Mainly the plastic front plate needed to fit an aftermarket stereo unit, as well as the harness for the audio hookup.  Fortunately, my RX-8 has the premium Bose factory stereo, which already has an external amplifier.
