    Looking for an aftermarket head unit with Apple car play. Would prefer it fits in the stock location. I’ve seen some that are just too large for my liking.

    Best way is to go to Crutchfield.com, enter your truck year/model, and see what fits.

    iLX-W650 ain't that new, been out for a couple of years. I was looking to get the iLX-W650. Then I wanted HD radio so I was gonna get the iLX-407. Well I ended up getting the new iLX-507.

    The iLX-507 came out a few months ago this year. The better features are has HD 720p display, supports 96khz/24bit audio (has Tidal, not that I care), 13 band EQ, & has wireless CarPlay/Android Auto. But it does currently cost $350 more than the W650.

    I don't use Android Auto much (only on longer trips) but if you plan on using CarPlay/AA a lot, wireless is so much more convenient (they make add-ons for wireless though). I really love this HU. Just yesterday I added screen mirroring dongle to the HDMI input so now there's not any cables needed to plug into my phone from the HU.
