appradio 2 android override hack in the works
Wanted to drop the line that there is a developer in the process of making android fully usable in the appradio 2 via a app called killnanny. So far he's been able to get it to work on his device and has opened up beta testing to others who donate, he plans to offer the required app on the market once he has a final release.

As a current beta tester this app is more of an Alpha state right now, some devices work while others don't which is what is currently being worked on.
The benefits to this setup is that you have a 7" capacitive interface screen with built in amplifier and radio for relatively cheap ~$300. Also you can change devices easily if one ever fails or you upgrade.
The downside is that you have the annoying agreements to OK every time you power up as well as the parking brake (can be automatically overridden with a external device). Also the MHL connection can be a little unstable and has been snowing out on me, but i've been using cheap internet adapters. I've ordered a pioneer kit and will be testing it when it arrives.
