2nd Gen IS Dash (Infotainment) Replacement Options (Carplay,Android Auto, Other)

Recommended Posts

In a number of forums recently, I have seen a lot of interest pertaining to Lexus IS Dash replacement options so I thought I would relay my knowledge of those options.
Below are the options I am aware of for Lexus IS250/350 Dash Replacements Circa ~2006 to 2013. Some of the companies below have options for earlier and later models.

GROM Audio VLINE units for Factory Navigation Lexus Models
(Option 1 (called VLine2) turns Factory dash into an Android Dash, Option 2 screen mirrors)
[Uses Factory Navigation Dash but converts the underlying system to Android by installing a new computer system]

Specific Part (Part # LEX5VL2 ): https://gromaudio.com/store/vline/le...n-upgrade.html
Comments: Looks like a nice option if you want the original dash and have a Factory navigation. This is not an Apple Carplay unit or an Android auto unit, but a separate Android instance with apps you can install. However I am told the VLine2 may soon have support for Android Auto, but I have not confirmed that as I did not see it on their site.

Comments: This is the nicest looking dash replacement I have seen. It is not Carplay or Android Auto. I thought I had heard though this unit has issues, but I am not sure if that is true.
