In this video, I explain how to identify quality Android car radios.
I do a basic comparison with a couple of quality Android units against a Kenwood head unit with Android Auto and Apple Car Play
Quick elaboration of the term “Open Source” as I wasn’t clear in this video. Open-Source refers to software code that has been made available for free so that other developers can further develop and make use of it. In this case, Google made Android an open-source platform and this enabled many manufacturers to use Android as a base operating system for free, essentially maximizing their own profits. This is what lead Android to become the most used mobile operating system in the world.
The term Open-Source does not have any relevance to the ability to install apps ect, that is just the benefit of having an operating system with that functionality.
