    Hello,

    I'm thinking about possibly purchasing a 2006 - 2008 Lexus GS, but I am concerned about the ability (or lack thereof) to install a new double din Android Auto stereo system.

    Does anyone know if it is possible to install an aftermarket Android Auto stereo system in the 2006 - 2008 Lexus GS model?

    Thanks in advance!

    Hi @gil_happy,

    If you buy a GS without the factory nav (which would be pretty outdated at this point anyway), LE sponsor Beat-Sonic makes an adaptor to plug a standard aftermarket stereo into the Lexus wiring:

    So electrically you're good. I'm not sure what all is necessary in terms of making a double-DIN fit physically in those cars, however.

    ETA: There's also https://tinyurl.com/yxcrfmpc which is an aftermarket Android-based radio that replaces the GS' center stack with a big Tesla-like screen. It's a bit pricey though.
