Replace JRV9000 Radio

I sure need lots of help, please. My JRV900 has decided that it will only work when I Press the menu button for any option I wish. So that being said, I need a replacement radio with 3 camera input, and nav, sirius , and I would prefer it to be more like the chevy 2019 radio, where I can connect to waze navigation and or more android apps. Any suggestions??????

JRV9000 radio

Thank you Duckface for this info. looks like just what i am looking for. Do I need to have my phone plugged into the radio like on the car? To use the apps? You have been most helpful.

Your phone isn't needed except as maybe a Hotspot so the radio head can access the internet if you don't have a whole rv router.
Apps work independently.

It's a complete android system unto itself.
It will even do things offline that your phone will like work with Google maps you have predownloaded.
We have an app, radar now, that usually runs on it.
The 9.0(maybe as low as 8.1 version) and higher Android will do split screen so we can have
Windy
And
RadarNow
Showing at the same time.
We keep waze on an easier to reach device. We like to participate in waze and mark/U mark roadhazards and police and such. It's either on a phone or on a $110 10 inch android tablet.

The head will also do
Police scanner
In the background.

I think post 111 in my signature thread shows a bunch of rv specific apps which we can use on the radio head.

It'll do ANYTHING your phone can but on a 10.1 inch screen.
(I think some of these head units even take a Sim card.)

JRV9000 radio

Ducksface, do you perhaps have a model # for the radio you got. I have been racking my brain on Amazon and find so many eonon radio's. Not sure what specific size I would need for my 2014 Thor Hurricane. My Jensen is now D E A D. Today it jumped to AM stations when I turned it on then jumped to FM. The pictures of your radio are just what I want a new one to do for me. I am after android. Thanks for your help

I don't know your dash configuration if it's a class b/c or has the Thor class A dash.
If it's the Thor dash ANY double din radio wlll fit. If it's a factory dash, a quick look on the web will tell you double din, din.5 or single din. All this just means the size of the hole in your dash. All else is the same except maybe a smaller screen on a single din.

Eonon isn't the top of the line end all, I have it because I have an 10 year older very mechanical eonon in an offroader and it puts up with all the dust and offroad stuff.
It is an 8 inch screen that pushes itself out of the radio, turns 90°, stands up, then angles back. It has dust on/in it like a dining table in a Disney haunted house movie. And it's been flawless.

There a few other brands one has a name like dogdog or something which gets good reviews.

There's a young man named Nguyen (I think Nguyen radio review as a search term will find him) on youtube who does installations and reviews of various brands in the 2 to 4 hundred radio heads.
There are also radios having 13 inch screens and they'll rotate from landscape to portrait.

Internally and externally , I don't think there's a one percent difference to any of the 10.1 heads.
Android is the heart, the screens are the same and the things they do are identical.

An android radio head does what an android tablet will do. Almost exactly. Same screen, same software,
The radio head is just a way to get the tablet to fit in your dash.
