Any driver will attest that good music is part of the drive and the most unfortunate thing is that due to how the Kenyan car market is set up, most people never really enjoy a good sound system thanks to Japanese radios that can’t even help drivers navigate their way on the road.

While this is the situation, it doesn’t mean things have to stay that way. In the recent past, we have seen an influx of third-party radio systems that not only come with a display for your reverse camera and a USB port for your personal music but we’ve seen radios that support Android Auto and Apple CarPlay.

For those who don’t know, we’re not talking about the Chinese-made radios that ran Android and look like a tablet, we are talking about head units built by reputable brands that won’t die on you three months after purchase. These units that support Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, allow you to connect your smartphone and mirror your device. Including your apps allowing you to access Google Maps for navigation, Spotify for music and even interact with calls and messages all without touching your phone.

In this article, we shall list some of the popular head units with this feature and where you can buy them.
