Do you have the link or any idea where you bought the DC to DC converter? I don't believe my pioneer head unit provides power either and I like your method of tapping into the 12v. Thanks in advance.

on my side, I purchased This one, but I didn't need to used it because my new "chinese" head unit support OEM rear camera.

Thanks for chiming in and for the link. I ended up going with This One. Offers some flexibility in the voltage if ever needed (shouldn't be). Which head unit did you end up getting?

Hey, love seeing this head unit replacements. Question, do you need any special tools to remove the dash to get to the head unit. Ive seen videos of people pulling it off, but can't tell if thats post them using a tool to unlock the fasteners. my android head unit is arriving this week and just want to prepare if I need extra tools to install! Thanks

Just wanted to say thanks hojong, I finally installed a Android head unit and it was able to retain steering wheel controls, clock, backupcamera (with buck converter) and it also came with a canbus that lets me see things such as if doors are open, oil life, MPG, rear camera grid that turns with the wheel and other stuff.

sweet, this looks like the exact head unit I ordered. Is this PX5/6 model? Does it come with apple CarPlay installed too? How is your experience with it after a year of use

This looks like the Maxca head unit that I'm attempting to install, I have it documented in the thread titled "Maxca MA-901", I am not having luck with the 2020 year model.

Additional question as I am partially through my hookup (only backup camera and mic not working).

For the Mic, I prefer to use the stock one and not mount the one with my new head unit. Is this as simple as connecting the Mic+ and Mic- on Audio Until Connector B to a standard Audio connector Jack? Anyone do this?
Hey, I bought a very similar unit and can't seem to get the stock microphone to work either. Did you find a way to get this to work?
