Aftermarket Head Unit Help

I'm getting really sick of my stock head unit on my '15 Fit.
I noticed there is a converter to keep the backup+lane watch cameras called Axxess HDCC-02 which I assume applies the reverse trigger and switches to lanewatch camera when the lane watch button is pressed.
I also noticed an android head unit from Phoenix connects to the CANBUS and supports both cameras but says it only supports Honda 2016+

What is the cheapest option available to me to get steering controls + lane watch + android head unit. Do any of them have APT-X support?
I honestly really really really want APT-X support + full android but it's kind of hard to search for. Has anyone seen something that fits?

Is it any good?

You'll need the Axxess HDCC-2 camera adapters to use your cameras with the aftermarket head unit.

You'll need the Axxess ASWC-1 steering wheel adapter.

I have posted a thread about this and the PAC RP4-HD11 steering wheel interface.

So I'm a bit confused with the PAC RP4-HD11. For $99 what else does it do other than steering wheel controls? Do you use it instead of the ASWC-1?

Ok I figured out why the ASWC-1 does not work with the HDCC-02 and did get it to work. Honestly it's why the HDCC-02 is not listed as compatible with the Fit.
The harness on the HDCC-02 feeds can-bus data to the ASWC-1. Problem is that the car does not use can-bus for the steering wheel controls -__-
Do not connect the ASWC-1 to the HDCC-02 harness. Instead, use the harness it came with or modify the HDCC-02 harness by adding a wire here and splice there and follow the ASWC-1 install directions from their website + the 7" instructions on page 4 if you have that trim level like I do.

You may want to buy a T connector for the main plug so you can splice the two wires but it was not worth it to me.

I'm making a video and will post it in a month or so when my USB adapters get here from China.

Interesting, looking forward to the video!

There's a big bummer though. The phone button cluster (pickup, hangup, ptt) don't work with the head unit I have so I don't know if it's sending the signals. The module responds to the buttons though so it's hooked up right. I'm looking into programming an arduino or seeing if direct connect works but will most likely need the arduino since there are two sets of controls.

If I was smarter I would tie in the can-bus. I think the 2 menu buttons might run on can-bus.

I miss the days of non-integrated head units and steering wheel controls. My GD head unit was a breeze to replace compared to my GK as far as being able to fully integrate without lots of $$ accessories.

So it turns out you can hook the head unit straight up to the signal wires on this model ( Atoto A6 has button configuration) The bluetooth buttons on the other hand it doesn't recognize. They must be out of range or not resistive. I'd have to use an arduino for my case but others can use the ASWC-1 for a name brand head unit to get both clusters working. The menu buttons I believe are can-bus but I can't confirm that.

It sucks that everything is so peiced together and not consistent at all.
