Head Unit for Windows Phone?

Hi everyone, So my main reason to replace my head unit (I currently have the 130) is because while I enjoy the simplicity of the 130, It's not to safe to have my changing songs and music through my phone while driving. While my own life is my decision, I really don't want to hurt anyone else.

So I want to get a double din head unit that has a screen and interface that will allow me to access my files/music/audio books on my phone. The issue I have is that I have a windows phone. (HTC M8) I'm not sure if I plug in my phone via USB rather it will be accessible to the particular head unit I choose. The Windows phone OS is definitely NOT in the majority of the market share so I'm not sure if I have to get a head unit that is specifically programmed to read the MS file system, or rather an Android capable device can read it.

If anyone has a similar phone and experience please chime in and let me know. I'd hate to be limited to a tiny tiny fraction of head units cause of my choice of phone. So I"m hoping that it can be read by a head unit that knows how to read Android's Linux file system.

Any suggestions? I also don't need anything very feature heavy, just able to play nice with this Windows phone!

Can't help you with a Windows Phone. If you are looking for a new HU. I would personally go with a Pioneer AVH-4100NEX. Has android auto and Carplay.. If anything get a used iPOD and use that for all your music, audio books etc.. while keeping your Windows Phone.

If you are not sure what will work on your phone take your Windows phone and go to bestbuy with a usb cable and plug it in and give it a demo.. see what works for you.
