    Still no OTA updating? They can't yet incorporate the technology to check a URL and download it for you? I don't expect things to auto-update themselves (although its nice with Firefox and Chrome), but it WILL be nice when a polished Android Auto system tells you that an update has been downloaded automatically and is ready to install.

    That's a chicken vs. egg situation. The unit doesn't have an Internet connection by itself. It needs to connect through a cellphone. But if the 1.03 update makes your cellphone compatible where it wasn't compatible before, then it can't download the update until after the update has been downloaded.

    This aftermarket Pioneer unit looks very nice in the Charger's dash. It looks very OEM, which I like. In any of my current cars, any aftermarket unit would just look like crap.

    I couldn't stand that uneven fitting surround...
