Android head unit or Android auto

Not long ago I have seen some threads talking about porting android auto to an android head unit. The android head unit, mostly integrate car radio, stereo, GPS navigation, camera and others.So in my view, it's good enough for many scenario and requirements.

One of the reasons for installing the android auto, that the android HU manufacturers don't want to provide full mirroring of smartphones, or an internal Android OS. And the Android Auto won't do that, you can even use Pandora or Spotify on it.In fact, itís easily to be sued*by distracted driving deaths and maimings.

I have an 02 G500 and have been looking at the Chinese Android double din decks with 8" screens. They are compelling. Especially the ones running 8.0. I have a few concerns. Privacy, data (getting another sim card vs tethering data via WiFi from my phone) and reliability.
