I thought others might benefit from my latest project which was to replace the Bose Theftlock unit with a 7" Android Quad Core unit and 1 TB drive.

After doing alot of research, I purchased the Newsmy CarPad2 3001 directly from Newsmy. For those that are techy and like to play, there is a substantial following for this unit on the XDA/Android Forum.

I purchased a 3001 with quad core processor, dual bluetooth adapters, 802.11, 8GB storage and 2GB RAM storage. This unit also includes a nice am/fm tuner, 4 channel amp, line in/out and support for additional cameras. Check it out.

I used Metra adapters and mounting systems to install my unit.

I am very happy.

Let me know if you have any questions.

I kept everything except the headunit. I used Metra's interface kit which retained the Bose pieces. It sounds great and looks good. I use the Torque application running into a wireless OBDII adapter so I can read everything live and check/clear diag codes.

If it wouldnt be too much to ask, could you publish the part numbers of all the kits you used. What did you do for the bezel around the HU

I know this is super old, but I have practically the exact same project coming up... Android 7, bose interface, all same part numbers... I don't suppose you are still out there and remember what you ran into that I might want to be aware of?
