Whelp, I went ahead with the Boss unit from the previous post despite a lack of photos from anyone… here’s how it looks:

79695

79696

79697

The backup camera needs to be angled down a bit… right now it looks like my xB is just gonna launch over the van behind me!

Looks clean. How do you like it? How's the connectivity?
So far, so good.
Biggest plus for me was access to my Spotify music. Navigation (via CarPlay) in-dash, too, when I need it. And the touchscreen definitely makes the car feel modern. Kinda wish I had gotten a unit with an analog dial for volume instead of the capacitive touch buttons on this… oh well.

You can see there’s about 1/2” plastic that fills the space on either side of the touchscreen… it’s texture is subtly different than the rest of the dash… color is good tho. Maybe I can do something creative with this area?

Connecting to Apple CarPlay wirelessly takes 15-20 seconds, but it’s simple. The Bluetooth connection craps out from time to time, seemingly in areas with loads of traffic? But there’s also a wired connection, which also charges my phone… I guess wireless CarPlay doesn’t matter much to me, I don’t touch my phone in the car anyway.

Also, the backup camera makes me laugh every time it turns on…it’s such a small car anyway, not hard to park… I think the colored guide lines would work if I could angle the cam down about 15 degrees, and it doesn’t look like I can just turn them off.
