My experience of several cheap replacements:-

First one ran on Windows CE. It eventually died after 6 years.

Second unit was Android. Radio was FM only, with poor reception. Lost its maps during a routine car service and could not reload them.

Third unit is also Android. It has better but still not good FM only radio. I am using paid GPS navigation software which I already had on my phone, so no additional cost. I also added a USB DAB+ receiver using the DAB-Z app to run it with an on glass antenna.

All of these purported to be "direct plug in replacement" to the original wiring harness, but needed changes to the wiring for the steering wheel controls to work. This is possibly not a problem for the 2009 Yaris?

I can play music files loaded into the unit or on a USB drive.
Both of the Android units support wired Apple Car Play and Android Auto.
All support hands-free mobile calls, but I recommend adding a microphone, as they all had their inbuilt microphone set up for the left hand drive markets.

Still using the factory speakers.
