Innotrends Introduces Android Powered Ca-Fi In-Dash Stereo


Not satisfied with Android on just your phone and tablet? Wondering what it would be like to have that little green Android running your car stereo as well? Well, wonder no more, friends! Innotrends has introduced an Android powered in-dash stereo unit called the Ca-Fi. This (car battery sized) stereo runs on a 1.2GHz processor that houses a monstrous 6.2-inch 800×480 touchscreen display, DVD player, Bluetooth, USB slot, 2 microSD slots and integrated 3G radios for bumpin’ Justin Bieber’s finest, surfing the web (not recommended) or simply using Google’s tried and true Navigation app.

There’s only one small problem. Apparently, the Ca-Fi uses the double-DIN slot which according to ExtremeTech, isn’t too common in many US automobiles younger than 1990. Bummer. I’m not car audio tech, but I’m sure there is some other way to get this baby up and running when it launches Spring of 2012 in the UK.

I've been obsessed with consumer technology for about as long as I can remember, be it video games, photography, or mobile devices. If you can plug it in, I have to own it. Preparing for the day when Android finally becomes self-aware and I get to welcome our new robot overlords.

  1. Dbl din radios are easy to install in most vehicles. They make kits that will cover up most of your cutting mistakes. Dont let that scare you away phandroid, we count on you for great reviews:-)

    1. Oh snap! Might have to throw one of these in my ‘Lude. :D

  2. resistive touchscreens ewww no thanks..

    1. At least you’d be able to use your gloves when it’s cold. :P

  3. double din not common? i think its the most used size for car radios in USA!

    1. Most cars later than 90 don’t have them and most USA-ians are driving 90 and below. Notice how it’s stated. :P

      My 95 Ciera is a single din. You know I was crying when I seen this. :'(

      1. Cavalier/sunfires all up until they were discontinued in 05 all had double din radios

  4. my car radio size is officially called a corporate double din, which is 1/2 inch bigger on all sides… and ive been looking to put android in my car, only i want to build my own unit

  5. Ill wait till the brand names of in car audio come in with similar, which I know they are working on it. For now my Galaxy Tab 7 sits nicely and looks much better in my dash than this…… double din goodness!

  6. This will fit in place of my Tahoe’s double din stereo. Wonder how much this damn thing will cost…

    1. I have an Envoy Denali with double din, and I think this might be just what the doctor ordered.

  7. FFinally! :D

  8. Combining Android with vehicles is the future of car infotainment systems. GUI, Navigation, Free-Hand-Calling and G3 internet. Android brings the platform…

    I want G3 internet and the ability to free hand call…

  9. I just cried when I seen this. But my single DIN radio spot…

    The only way is to change my interior, but the money that’ll cost, might as well get a new car.

    DUGH!! I hate errbody that has a double DIN radio, including my mom right now. :P

    I would sneak this as some sort of gift for my mom, but she loves her cassette player. o.O

    Edit: Oh my google!! I can’t stop staring at it!! Ima fan-droid for sure, but IDC right now!! I love music and this would just make me love it more. Dugh!! Ima be hating on some people for a little while. -_-

  10. Who’s smokin’ crack? All POST 1990 vehicles today have double din in the USA. And MOST people drive a 1995 or newer…. The statement in the article is wrong. The statement above is “isn’t too common in many US automobiles born later than 1990” It should be automobiles OLDER than 1990 for clarification. Confusing LATE models and late in that sentence which is the wrong use of term in this situation. Jus sayin.

    1. I guess you are, cause none of my cars had a double DIN stereo until my 2004 Cavalier. GM wasn’t using double din until they started transitioning certain vehicle models to it in the early 2000’s.

      My 95 Monte Carlo, 92 S-10, 93 Fullsize Pickup, 99 Suburban, and 00 Blazer are all 1-1/2 DIN. My 04 Cavalier and 02 S-10 are Double-DIN.

      But you are right, it is backwards. It should be cars older than 1990-something aren’t Double-DIN. Some are from 1990-2005, and then after that, they are all Double-DIN. (However, I am sure there are still some exceptions to that.)

  11. Looks cool, but little too big.

  12. My G35 wants! I have been hunting for a double din replacement since I bought the car a few years back. I was almost going to give in and do a lilliput touchscreen/carputer setup, but F’ that noise with Android around the corner! In for 1, maybe 2 if I can talk my girlfriend into it with her murano. She loves her Atrix so I wouldnt see a problem other than cost. :)

  13. Include Sirius/XM and I’ll bite.

    1. You kidding? This would be the sole reason to finally dump Sirius.

      Pandora, Shoutcast, Google Music, Grooveshark all without needing to fumble around with bluetooth linking and wires hanging all over the place…

  14. that’s freaking awesome, I want, I looked and my car should be able to be modified to fit this

  15. This is not a first. Dynavin also makes an Android based nav/stereo.

  16. Hey look! It’s Car Home. I love that app…
