    Replacement for Garmin GPS Popup Box?

    Since my 2012 SX4 radio is dying, I'm thinking of replacing it with a Chinese 2-DIN 8" screen Android unit.
    This would make the Garmin 2390 GPS redundant.

    Is there something else that can be placed in the GPS popup box?
    Maybe a cellphone in landscape orientation? (Most cellphones appear to be too long/wide).
    Maybe a dedicated screen for DVR/Rearview Camera/OBD/Cellphone MirrorLink?

    Could the dashboard with the popup box be replaced by a 2013 dashboard, or an older SX4 dashboard with built-in clock?

    The other option that was in SX4s was a clock/temp display. From junkyards online I can only find the display and not the whole plastic housing. I'm kinda tired of looking at the bump in the middle of my dashboard knowing there is a pretty much useless gps in there. I found one thread on this forum that will show you the other SX4 option. If this is something one wants to do I think you would have to visit a junk yard in person and pull the whole clock/temp/plastic housing out. That's the only help I can be on this thread.

    Yes the dashboard can be replaced by a 2013 one. I will have to recheck but there is a panel behind the grill where the center speaker sits, that you can remove and place a tripod for example.
