@Dons101 flac is compressed audio format like mp3, but is looseles, like original cd-s. My music library is 90% on flac, and flac player for me is a must

I've got the 310 which hasn't even had the Bluetooth or aux in modules added. So bad I bought a Bluetooth to FM transmitter with DAB just so I can get some music on it. Thought that would see me though while I researched proper units. I'm not sure I want a whole Android unit, just something to control and display the music and maps from my Android phone. What's this about one that can read the fuel level etc? My 2010 Caddy C20 only has analogue guages on the dash. I have got the Torque app to read OBDII data which would be cool if that could send to the display but as we're talking about Car Play/ Android auto I'm guessing that's not an option.

Also Android Auto works wirelessly now. How do I known what units will work without being connected by USB?

@British Gas Blue yes, from stock has to be connected to usb, but for aditional 120$ guy sell wireless dongle mirorlink, apple carplay, android auto, bluetoth is only for calls and is slow for connection to phone apps, this dongle is in usb port and phone is connected to dongle..
310 has more connections on back than 330 i lose climate display, aux in glovebox and cars bluetoth phone speakers, Cheers
