This looks promising. The alternative (NavTool) has not gotten great reviews (more so about the company, not about the product). Unfortunately, my 2015 is excluded!!
How will you install it (self or local shop)?

What's the main difference between the GROM and NavTool that GROM is a couple hundred bucks more expensive? I want to pick up one of the other for Android Auto but was really turned off of NavTool by the company reviews.

As I understand, Grom runs an Android OS, and can therefore run apps itself, while NavTool is more of an interface device.

I'd like to see a direct compare/contrast review of the two devices myself, as I'd also like to have AA at some point.

That's a good point.

I wonder if the GROM integrates well with the steering wheel buttons and functions. I know that NavTools does some integration but that it's not complete.

I'm already planning on picking up one of the two in a few months when it gets warmer so I can work on the car without freezing half to death. ?Maybe I'll get both, do a comparison, and return the one that I like less.
