This “JDM” one does bring the screen closer, but looks really chunky. Be mindful there are Satnav versions that have the bar with dedicated buttons and some are not 2DIN. The bottom bar also makes it look not as integrated, but would’ve meant I didn’t need to go hunting for a steering wheel with audio controls. It’s a toss up.
The more widely available version was a “gauge pod housing” and in that context, it makes more sense you didn’t need to touch it, more for “eyes only”. So using it for CarPlay, espcially Maps etc, works well. The chunkier one is more for using radios that required more interaction like pressing buttons, turning dials. Oh, and changing CDs etc.
