The HiFi system installed is a multiplexed CAN amplifier designed to work with the head units supplied.

This is a question you really need to ask the manufacturer of your Android unit as to compatibility.

The amp 'b' and 'c' connectors are for the speakers, but the main 'a' connector goes to the vehicle audio system head unit and contains the power and CAN connections:
