    Was curious if anyone here has used the GROM auto system to upgrade there existing unit to have Android Auto/CarPlay.

    I've been contemplating it since I would really like to have Android Auto without ditching the factory unit or having to do something more drastic with the system.

    I have it installed in 2008 Lexus LX 570 and 2017 Tundra. Works terrific. The only issue I have is sometimes the backup camera is distorted in the Tundra. No rhyme nor reason to it. I’ve been working with Grom t o fix.

    Awesome, thanks for the feedback. So it's basically just like having an Android-based radio, except uses the factory radio's screen, right?

    Yep. You can switch back and forth to stock as well. I’m very pleased with it.

    It will depend on your expertise. I feel like if I could do it pretty much anyone can. Instructions from GROM are fairly generic, but straightforward. I believe they have some videos on their website. You have to pull the head unit and attach wire harnesses. Run gps antennae wire and microphone wire. Then find a place to hide and mount the GROM unit.
