After running into the issues with Phoenix Automotive delaying the 13" Android 10 unit I had ordered and cancelling the order due to getting a bit of the run-around, I decided to do some more digging around on things. Phoenix Automotive mentioned they were cancelling the Android 10 units and releasing an Android 12 unit, so I decided to check with manufacturer direct stuff on Aliexpress, which is most likely the same place Phoenix is getting their items. The newest unit out looks to be a 14.5" screen using Android 12 with 8GB RAM, 128GB ROM, and 8-core processor.


This is a huge upgrade over what I currently have, which is the 12.1" Android 9 unit using 4GB RAM, 128GB ROM, and 6-core processor. It's definitely an expensive setup, but I can say I have been extremely impressed with my PX6 unit and would love to upgrade. I generally don't like being the test mule on things, but I have a feeling with these being this new someone will just have to make a jump for it and try it out. With Phoenix telling me it would be a minimum of 2 months before they would even have the 13" Android 12 units, it doesn't really make sense to try and order from them again.

I'm curious as well. I have the 12.1" unit currently that has only a few of the physical buttons at the bottom which as been perfectly fine thus far. I'm just wondering if not having the volume and temperature knobs will be a detriment, but I'm willing to try it.

Got some more info on the unit - 14.5" screen, 8GB RAM/128GB ROM, 8-core GTE processor, Android 11, and retains all stock functions including Sync 2 stuff. This would be quite a huge upgrade over the Android 9 PX6 unit, much larger and higher resolution screen and about double the processing power, as well as going up 2 OS's.

The seller offered me a fairly large discount on ordering the unit, so I went ahead and put the order in. I'll update the thread after I get it and start the install. :)

If any of you guys decide to sell your old units, please DM me. I would like to try something like this out. My truck is a 2010, I would like to think someone may be selling a unit that's compatible with my truck.

what was the quote? i typically wont use these kinds of products, however i was tempted to upgrade to sync 3 but if it works well for you, maybe others can benefit from you and get a good deal on it
