Hey BIGDJE, any up-date....I pre-ordered Aug 28, 2021 not aware of this forum. Stumbled on this site by a random search. The original Feb 4, 2021 pre-order post now has me concerned? I was optomisticly thinking mid October when I placed my order... the lead on the pre-order now appears ambitious? Thank you for sharing your feedback. Take care!

Over the past week or so Phoenix automotive has put out a lot of youtube instruction vids on the SC7862. I don't see anything specific to F150, but it does look like they are progressing with this.

From what I can tell, they have made a few improvements, which tends to concern me. I would have preferred if it was just the same basic OS that fixed all the known bugs and based off Android 10. Given their history with QA, I suspect all they've done is introduced more bugs and made the thing even less stable.

I'm happy to see others giving it a shot, and I hope I'm wrong.

Well Phoenix just cancelled and re-funded my order, I did not ask them to do this.

Edit: they just refunded the dongle, Android 10 unit still on order, supposed to be November release.

I got a notice as well to drop the Android Auto dongle I'd ordered as an option. The dongle is not required for the head unit, per their note. They sent PayPal a credit, but did not cancel my order?

I ordered August 28. How old was your order?

Ordered 20Jan21, Order still in place, they refunded the dongle for me as well. Email from them (this morning) said that they would be releasing the units in November (due to chip shortage).

Every time I open this thread I get so tempted. I’m amazed with how seamlessly integrated this system appears

Hey now and good afternoon. One of the more recent post identifies a November release for this head unit? Well November 20 is here and no news as yet? Mama says "no news is good news". I love my mama, but I think this is wrong regarding pending on-line merchandise .....

Any updates out there in the FRF regarding the new Phoenix SC7862 ? Thank you for your time and input!

Ordered 20 January 2021, last email said November 2021 release, almost out of patience.
