Recommend good android for CCC

Hello
I think I'm going crosseyed looking at all the android systems available for the CCC system found in our 07'. I was wondering if anyone could confidently recommend a good unit to buy. Im looking for the I-Drive knob, steering wheel buttons, backup camera and voice commands to remain functional. Reason I say this is my experience with tech stuff is limited and I'm not sure what functions will no longer work with the android units. Our existing screen has some lines in it and probably due for a change. Advice would be appreciated.

I've actually also been mulling over this issue. What I fear is that those units tend to come from brands that are not known, and in my experience, those unknown brands from the Orient tend to not be sturdy and cam be problematic, finicky and not long-lasting.

But if anyone has been using them problem free for years I'm all ears.

I think most of them are made by the same manufacturer and just branded differently.

The best place to look is Ali-express. Things to note are:
You need at least 8 core processor
9.1 Android
Dab
Front and rear cam feature
DSP compatible for those with a Posh system.

I am looking as we speak, so I will no doubt put up my posts when I buy one

I bought a unit from AVINUSA and has been using it for over a year with no issues. Took me half a day to install. Well made and looks very cool. I would include the rear view camera unit incorporated with the lock. Camera is awesome. Completely plug and play. No cutting or splicing!

I also bought from a different source an Anytek front view camera which works well with the unit.

BTW, this unit is for my X5 E70 3.5d

I always prefer after market units that attempt to mimic the OEM look as much as possible. Having a screen sticking out of my E70 dash seems, well, unnatural.
