Default Any advice on a double din Android Auto and Car Play unit?

I'm considering the following units:

- Sony XAV-AX5000

- JVC KW-M730BT

- JVC KW-M650BT

- Alpine iLX-W650

All can be found under $300 for a little work.

FM reception is important to me, and I've read reviews saying the Sony XAV-AX5000 does well there.

And Android Auto is especially important, though it'd be nice to have Car Play as well.

Other than that, a nice interface (valuing simple elegance over dolphins and goofy transitions), and of course great sound. I'll probably add an external amp, and looking for advice there too, but might not be adding one right away.

Any other units I should consider?

And any feedback on the above?

Thanks for any tips.

I have always liked the Alpine HU's. I am actually planning on putting that alpine HU in my wife's car when her OEM finally dies and she lets me....it keeps having issues but it doesn't bother her as much as it does me....

But I have also owned some of the nicer JVC stuff.
I had a JVC Arsenal KD-A925BT in my 2002 pontiac and had a JVC KD-SH99 in my first car. Both were near flawless. The KD-SH99 just had the motorized faceplate motor starting to wear out so it was really slow and needed a little encouragement from time to time.

2014 F150 Limited
Factory HU programmed for low level 4v outputs, Alpine PDR-V75, Active Tweeters: SI M25, Mids: SI TM65 mk3, Sub: JL TW3, Rears: SB17's, Helix DSP.2, Resonix CLD and CCF. 100% MLV

I've been using Alpine stuff for probably 20 years and love it, but I think this touchscreen era is a new one. No one has any first hand experience with any of these head units?
