When we talking about car, sometimes it gets complicate. Owning a car, there are so many add-ons you need to consider. For example, you surely need to make your car smell better, so you need car air freshener. You may also need to do a regular checkup by yourself, so you need OBD2 Scanner. The list goes on and on. But one important thing that we really need is the joy and happiness while riding (especially if you usually take a long ride). This is why car stereo comes to place.
Few months ago, my friend (Jim) and I bought several so-called best Android car stereos just to test and experience them. And for sure, I have to admit that there are many products in the market which covered with their sweet and nice word in their description or advertisement, yet the quality is just sad.
The only way to experience these car stereos is to try it out. Fortunately, you don’t really need to try everything out there. With this article, I am willing to share you some of my experiences, and reviews on the best Android car stereos. Whether you are looking for the top-rated or the one with most reasonable price, they are all here.

List of Top 9 Best Android Car Stereos in 2017
#9 Android Car Player, LESHP Double 2DIN Android 5.1 Car Radio Stereo 7 Inch Touch Screen
Opening the list of the top 9 best android car stereo, this 7-inch, LESHP double din might be what you are looking for. First of all, I love this because it has many built-in and features. Starting from built-in GPS, built-in Bluetooth, video, audio, google maps, and other features. It is really nice to have this one in your car.
Last but not least, with your shipping you will received almost everything you need along with the car stereo such as reverse camera, installation bracket, frame kit, antenna for your GPS, etc.
The only downside of this is that it comes from a seller that is a bit less popular if compared to other on the list.
I think we all know Pioneer is one of the best seller when it comes to car stereo. And of course, from here onward in the list, you will find some more android car stereos that actually comes from Pioneer. Talking about this 7 inches Pioneer AVIC-8200NEX, I used to test it once in my coworker car.
To be frank, this one is the best of the best. Then you probably wonder if it is the best, why it stands in the eighth position? Well, the only thing that I don’t like about this car stereo is its price. The price is a bit high, somehow more than double of some of product in this very list. Beside this, this car stereo is all you need. It supports Apple Carplay which is rare to find in other car stereo.
It also has Android Auto – a feature that will automatically bring helpful information and organize this information just the way you want. A good example would be information of map, navigation, point of interest, etc. It is really abstract and hard to try to explain this feature unless you give it a practical try. You would be amaze with this android car stereo just like I was.
If you really love your car, and care about choosing the very top-rate car stereo, then you might want to re-read the details of this product again and make the purchase right away.
#7 JOYING 7 Car Stereo 2GB 32GB Android 6.0 Head Unit Double Din Touch Screen
Another on list is from Joying. First I would like to provide some details on its machine. This car stereo comes with Android 6.0 Marshmallow. It is designed with Intel Sofia 3GR Quad Core, 2GB of RAM, and 32GB of ROM, which surely enable itself to run more smooth specially on multitasking and to store more apps and stuff in your internal storage. For your information, I have never tried this with my own hand. Yet my younger sister did with her friend’s car. And yes, it is good for this price range.
The only drawback for this one is that it does not support UBS/Bluetooth tethering. And if you think you don’t need this feature, then you might want to check this out right now.
Okay, here come another one with different seller, ATOTO. First of all, you need to know that this is very optimized car stereo. It comes with a lot of features that you and your car might need for a long run. Those features include radio, camera (backup and dash), Bluetooth, steering wheel control and many more.
Second thing that I love about this is the amazing quick boot performance. You can guess how long it needs to get booted but I will tell you right here. It is actually 2 seconds. I am not sure whether this is the fastest booting time in the Android car stereo industry, but to the extent of my knowledge, it is. The faster boot-time not only provide convenient for your use but can somehow prevent battery from draining out as well.
Just like the other in the list of the best android car stereos, this one lets you have some entertainment by listening to your audios, watching videos, and of course making call. The one thing that I really love about this Pyle 7In Double-Din is it has a very good so-called turn-by-turn voice direction assistant that help support you with navigation really well. Wherever you go, this one is your little cute assistant along the road. This android car stereo is also well-known of its longevity of use.
This one will come with a bit old version of Android, KitKat 4.4.4 and that might be the only shortcoming for it.
#4 Pumpkin Android 6.0 Car Stereo – Motorized Multi-touch Screen
If you are looking for the best android car stereo that enable you to have a steady phone mirroring, then I think you should hold on to this tight. For android smart phone, this 2-Din from Pumpkin allow user mirror and take control via connection of USB cable. For iPhone user, you can mirror it via Wi-Fi connectivity with AirPlay.
This device is manufactured with 1GB of DDR3 RAM, 1.6GHz Cortex A7 Quad Core, 16GB of memory, and of course Android 6.0 Marshmallow.
#3 Pioneer AVH4200NEX 2-DIN Receiver with 7″ Motorized Display
Coming to the third on the list, this is a the-same-but-different car stereo. Okay, so what is the differences? You asked! Well, it can support up to 2 phones at once. This enable you and your friend an easy access and the need of not plug and unplug the phone again and again. Secondly, it functions well with SiriusXM Sxv300 tuner. On top of that, it works smoothly with everything you need such as sport flash features, traffic, weather, so on and so forth.
Last but not least, if you are the looking for car stereo to use your Android Auto or Apple CarPlay, then I am sure you wouldn’t find anything else better than this one since it is carefully made for these features.
If you’re browsing for the best android car stereo with top-rated quality, then I suggest you can go for this one. Maybe it is a bit pricey compared to others on this very list, but it is worth the spending.
#2 Pioneer AVH-X4800BS 7″ Motorized DVD Receiver
Here is another one from Pioneer coming to the list. And spoiler alert, the next one is also from Pioneer. Of course, as I said earlier, Pioneer is among the best in this industry. Their products almost never disappoint consumers. So how about this 7-inch Pioneer AVH-X4800BS? you asked. Of course, coming at the second top of the best android car stereos list, this one must have something special.
First, let me be honest with you! This is the one that I use in my car these days. Just like other people, I love it because it can support 2 phones at once. Like most of android car stereos from Pioneer, this one is also equipped with built-in Bluetooth.
Furthermore, this comes with a universal double-din size which I guess can fit very well to your car. To this date I still think this is the best one according to its price.
#1 Pioneer AVHX5800BHS 2-DIN Receiver with 7.0″ Display/Built-In Bluetooth
Here, we are saving the best for last. Standing at the very top of the list, this 7-inch double DIN Pioneer AVHX5800BHS is nothing but the best. To be honest, my friend, Jim, is using this with his car and he absolutely loves it to the max. First of all, it comes with a well-design Bluetooth built-in which means that you do not need to worry about getting another Bluetooth receiver if you want to use this function. And you might not need to worry about fail connection as well.
Second, there is one big reason why my friend loves this guy so much. My friend loves to listen to the radio all along the road. And if you are the one who enjoy listening to the radio just like he does, then this one is what you should invest on. There is a feature called HD Radio which let you listen to radio with a CD-quality sound without distortion of audio. He actually admits that this android car stereo is the best when it comes to radio.
I could say that the positive points for this go on and on such as voice recognition, Mixtrax, Audio Video Quality so on and so forth. You may actually want to check it out for complete details.

Like I mentioned earlier, if you really want to go for the top-rated, you may like to go for Pioneer AVIC-8200NEX or Pioneer AVH4200NEX. Even these two are little pricey, but I can guarantee that it will worth the investment. On the other hand, if you like a great one with reasonable price, then Pioneer AVHX5800BHS should be in your shopping basket.
