I have the AR2, I've had little issues with it ever since I installed it. It is a great idea and just what I was looking for but there are so many issues with something that seems SO simple to make. The technology that I want is already used in some OEM car stereos I just can't understand why the aftermarket stereo companies can't put it into something aftermarket. It is as if the two of them don't know the other exists.
I would really like to be able to connect my phone to a micro usb plug without turning on bluetooth and have the screen be copied on the dash without having to have the phone screen on and without having to have stupid 3rd party apps on the phone to dim the screen completely. Or a program that only allows you to use their own underdeveloped apps to do something that has already been perfected by other companies. To use the data connection on my phone to run apps on a headunit without having to have a $15-25/month subscription to something you can only use while in your car.
Appradio has just dropped support for their older models while there was still so many problems to be fixed, it has just been a constant frustration for me so I will just have to deal with the reliable AUX cord to the smartphone till something comes out that doesn't suck.
