Will this Pioneer fit a 2005 Elise?

Hi everyone, who knows whether thePioneer AVH-3300NEX 7″ Single-Din Multimedia DVD Receiver Bluetooth Car Stereo will fit a 2005 lotus Elise? I really like this new unit because it allows for "CarPlay" or "apple pay" that allows for playing of apps from phone to the unit's screen. Pretty awesome. Here's the cheapest I've found I (some sites have it for up to $600) https://www.zaxaudiovideo.com/produc...yABEgKfj_D_BwE. Thanks

Yes - it will fit, but the screen will block the two center AC vents. There are also single din units with screens that open in the downward position, but then it blocks the AC controls.

There arenít any single din CarPlay head units that I know of. Even the units with 3 or 3.5 inch screens are hard to come by. I recently installed a Pioneer DVH-885AVBT. That unit along with two from JVC were the only name brand units I could find, and the Pioneer isnít even intended for sale in the US. There just isnít much available these days in the single din size.
