Android head unit

Hey first time posting
I was wondering if anyone knew where I could get and android head unit for the 99 2.3 cl?
I have been searching online but I mostly just found universal units and nothing for the car specifically , I'm not sure where else to look so I figured someone here might know.

Thanks in advance for any info

considering that android auto JUST came out about a year ago.....there are limited android auto head units...

Alpine and Pioneer have a few but because they are NEW, they cost well over a grand.

kind of SHOCKING to install a headunit for $1000.00 and that doesnt even cover labor fees


or

you can retrofit a tablet INTO the 99 2.3 CL. this involves knowing electronics/tech. it also involves cutting and retrofitting.
basically, a retrofit job is turning something that wasnt stock and making it look like stock.

if you can afford a $1000.00 head unit PLUS installation and want to be ahead of the curve with technology, then pick up an android auto pioneer or alpine head unit.



not sure what else you want me to suggest, as your options are very slim

OR if you are good with your hands and electronics/tech and can retrofit a tablet into your car, you can do that.

but again, not to sure what else you want me to say, as your choices are slim.

Most radios are universal, you can do either a single or double din radio in our cars

if you arent lookin for an android head unit, any head unit will be able to hook up. you will need a specific wire harness and a mounting kit

You just need to get a double din radio kit, I had to trim the center bar out of mine to make it fit right. Should fit any standard double din size. I've had about 5 different ones in my car over the years
