Pioneer Electronics Australia has this afternoon finally acknowledged the launch of Android Auto in Australia. They’ve announced via Facebook that they’ve updated their Australian website with a product page for at least one of the head units due to arrive here next month.
The product page is now available, with specs and more, as well as links to a number of places where you can purchase the unit, though none of the stores suggested were aware of its existence, nor the price when we contacted them. While Pioneer Electronics hasn’t announced pricing on the post, they have previously advised users on Facebook that the price will be $1,149.
The full Facebook post reads:
To whet your appetite, here’s a demo of Android Auto on the Pioneer head unit :
Pioneer Australia has also promised that the manual for the head unit will go up on the Support Page over night, but at this stage it’s not available.
At this stage, we’re still looking at a mid-April launch according to our sources, so keep an eye out.
