Can you or someone confirm a few information for me.

Online manual says there is a V OUT to connect display for rear passengers. Not sure how controls work yet - i suspect pretty standard interface , so i'd suggest checking youtube for Pioneer reviews.

Are you unable to use Google? Not hard
If I'm wrong, either move along or cite the specific laws saying I can't handle a radio.If you're driving while changing your car's clock, digging around in the glove compartment for a parking pass or reaching around to the back seat to open your kid's yogurt, you're guilty of distracted driving. But, you're not breaking Ontario's distracted driving law.
"The distracted driving section of the Highway Traffic act law only deals with handheld electronic devices," says OPP spokesman Sgt. Pierre Chamberland. "Anything else that takes your attention away from your primary task is potentially dangerous, like drinking coffee and spilling burning coffee on your lap, isn't addressed by that section, but it's a bad idea."
The law is specific
Ontario's distracted driving rules don't actually contain the word distraction. They're in section 78 ("Display screen visible to driver prohibited") and 78.1 ("Handheld devices prohibited) of the Highway Traffic Act.
"Ontario's distracted driving law is aimed at combating a particular form of driver distraction - the use of hand-held communication and entertainment devices and display screens," says Ontario's Ministry of Transportation in an e-mail statement. "Safe driving requires undivided attention. Drivers need to focus on the task at hand: keep your eyes on the road and hands on the wheel."
What you can't do legally
Here's what sections 78 and 78.1 say you can't do while driving, including while stopped at a light, according to the MTO:
Use hand-held wireless communication devices like cell phones, iPhones or BlackBerrys
Text, dial or e-mail
Use hand-held electronic entertainment devices, like iPods or other portable MP3 players and GameBoys
View display screens unrelated to driving on devices like laptops, tablets and DVD players
Program a GPS device, other than by voice commands.
What you can do legally
Use hands-free wireless communications devices with an earpiece, lapel button or Bluetooth device;
View the display screens of GPS units that are integrated into the vehicle or mounted on a dashboard and not obscuring the driver's view;
Use portable MP3 players hands-free, as long as they're secured in or mounted to the vehicle
Fiddling with complicated radio or climate controls could be a distraction, but it's not banned by Ontario's law – or by any other distracted driving law in Canada.
Type of Device: Display screens that are built into the vehicle and used for safety reasons.
Can I use it?: Yes

No problem, mine is from here: https://www.phoenixautomotiveinc.com/ I got it in a Tundra owner's group buy on facebook $550US. I usually play stuff in the background and run the radio, Spotify or Waze when I drive.

Mine showed up this morning. Managed to get it fitted this afternoon with minimal cursing - pretty impressed with it so far.

Which one did you two end up getting? Whats your initial thoughts on the unit?

I went for the XAV-AX100. Impressed so far; boot-up time doesn't seem so bad and the Android Auto functions work well. The mic seems pretty responsive, although my GPS signal seemed to drop out a couple of times. That's most likely down to the connected phone rather than the head unit, though.
