Just had a buddy of mine give me his DDX-712 which I plan on installing as soon as I get dash kit, harness, etc on order. Questions - the deck comes with what you see in the pic below, which is basically the necessary wires and the deck itself. No sleeve is attached. For those of you with this unit, or any similar unit for that matter, did you find that you actually needed the sleeve or did you do without?
Judging from what I've read, I think I'll be going with the Metra dash kit and hardware (harness, steering wheel adapter.) Sounds like it's of a better quality. Any particular retailer or online site that you guys would recommend? Ditto with getting the bluetooth module for this stereo - any particular site that sells them on the cheap?
