Parrot sells some good stuff and this might be worth looking into.

The Parrot RNB6 allows users to effortlessly switch back and forth between the competing operating systems coming to market: Google’s Android Auto and Apple’s Carplay. Just connect your phone, push a button, and all your apps are pushed to the dashboard, where you can interact with them using voice controls and generally stay a little safer on the road.

The RNB6 features a 7-inch 720p “IPS Pro” touchscreen, along with a 4 x 55-watt audio amplifier and a wired wide-angle 1080p dash cam (with “Super HDR”). The device runs on a slightly customized version of Android 5.0 that offers media playback, navigation, telephony, dash cam, air control, parking assistance and onboard diagnostics (for tire pressure, parking sensors, air conditioning and more); as well as voice control for some of these features.

Final pricing and a release date for the RNB6 have yet to be announced, but this could be something worth looking into if you’re looking to spruce up your car’s entertainment system and have a quick choice between CarPlay and Google’s offerings.
