I'm tempted to pre-order and try the new Pioneer 10.1" floating display. It uses a single DIN slot to hold the screen. Using an iPad as a mock-up (same size screen) it looks like it'll work. Bonus points if my DIN sized CB radio can fit in the lower DIN slot.

I already have a Pioneer 8200NEX so I should be able to reuse all the extras (XM radio, back up camera, blue tooth mic, GPS antenna, idatalink, etc).

It has wireless CarPlay which I'm looking forward to having.

I think the only real worry is how stable the screen is bouncing down the trail. There's also a 9" version. Another negative is that's it's so big, no room for my phone mount. Not sure if I'd even need it- possibly for some navigation apps, but CarPlay is now doing Gaia.

I have a Chinese 10.1" dual DIN head unit and is as stable as your mounting brackets (custom fab steel in my case).

I also have a Chinese Android 10.1.

The fit is great but the radio did come with all the replacement dash pieces.

The size is great. The mounts that came with it were crap and stuck way out from the dash (shown in photo) so I made my own.

Floating? Back in the day we called that cramming 10lbs of crap in a 5lb bag.

I do like the display itself however...

I just received a second head unit from the factory for free today. It even has upgraded memory (32GB vs 16GB). Thinking I might swap it with the existing one then make a rear seat entertainment system from the second one (minivan style from the soundbar).

Perfect!
If I could be so bold to ask that you take lots of install pictures?

I will keep tabs on this thread and I look forward to seeing the end results

I too am looking to upgrade my AVH-4200NEX to one of the floating displays over the smaller DMH-W4660NEX Would love to see photos if anyone finds some.
