This came out LAST year, but I didn't see it until an article on the 2019 Consumer Electronics Show (CES) mentioned it. I'm not an Alpine fan, but this concept looks intriguing and is a new approach -- a 9" display but mounted on a single DIN "mechless" chassis. It just might work.
Alpine Halo9 iLX-F309

Yeah, at $899 (Crutchfield) it's pricey -- but it gives me hope. ;) Here are some pics, but there are several interesting others at the Crutchfield link above.

First things first. ;)

By the time I get to the interior, maybe the prices will have dropped. But it even has HD Radio (high on my priority list), which Pioneer seems to ignore in their mass-marketed head units. You can get it, but you have to order a model that's not generally discounted.

I looked at some of the customer pics. It even an OBD-II input and displays all kinds of data (if only we had the ODB-II).

It would be nice just for the info -- I'm a data nerd. But definitely no CEL!!!

This is the data I monitor while I drive.
