Tilted Double Din Radio

having apple car play on my car, I canít see myself ever using another radio without it.

whatís the best way to tilt up the radio? I want to do a double din but if I remember correctly from my old cb7, the radio is pretty low and the double dinís screen position would be wack down there.

Iíve seen some radios with a tilted screen but only those android radios all over eBay. Also, any reviews or feedback on those? Thanks

The best way to get rid of the headunit issue is probably a single-din headunit with a flip up display. That would bring the touchscreen up a few inches, it would sit in front of the cabin air buttons though. Headunits that are tilted up aren't double din in most cases and you would probably need to modify the bezels of the radio oder the radio slot to make it fit properly. There are also Bluetooth buttons that you can pair with your radio you can stick on your steering wheel or somewhere in reach for the important things like skipping, volume and more. In the end, the car wasn't made with big double din touchscreen radios in mind and without a lot of trouble, tilting a double din sized radio up isn't that easy.

It would take a lot (like a LOT) more work, but you could swap positions of your head unit and climate control unit.

Alternately, you could try to fabricate a bracket and surround to angle it up, but that would probably end up looking weird and would possibly impact the sheetmetal center tunnel, depending on how deep your head unit is.
