I just purchased my 3rd Corolla, a 2015 LE. I was bummed to discover that this one has a touch screen with the apparently all-too-common calibration issue (lower half of the the screen is unresponsive).
I did manage to eventually pair my phone, which was the major frustration I was having. But I would still like to replace the factory unit with an aftermarket unit for a few reasons:
- Frustration free touch screen
- Navigation on dash without mounting a phone
But I don't want to lose backup camera, steering wheel controls, or any other vehicle features.
I found some older threads related to these concerns. Some mentioned specific products (maestro? ); wiring in an aftermarket camera, splicing into factory camera wiring + voltage change; etc.
What about these days? My car is 4-5 years old now. I'm comfortable with pulling wires and soldering if I need to, but I'd rather just buy adapters / harnesses / interfaces that just work.
I don't have a radio picked out, but I'm a happy Android user and so some Android Auto unit would be the way I'd go. Any recommendations are welcome. Apologies if I've missed a sticky or recent thread about this.
