    Anyone have any suggestions? Was looking at a kenwood, $999 just for the unit alone because it has navigation. Saw a few on Amazon but i know it need a wiring harness kit and such for it.
    Thanks!

    I had been eyeing up the Alpine ILX-207 for some time. I don't know if or when I'll pull that trigger, but I liked the layout of it all and the looks.
    If you haven't already check out Crutchfield, head over there to narrow your search. They'll also connect you with a kits needed for the dash and wiring.

    Another plug for Crutchfield. They're awesome and make it as close to plug and play as possible.

    I have a Kenwood unit. I really enjoy it. Use the search filter on Crutchfield to narrow down the features you want/don't. Not having built-in navigation easily knocks a few hundred off the price.

    I just installed a Pioneer DMH-2660. Only $345 on crutchfield plus the kit to keep all the factory stuff. Once you have car play or android auto you’re set IMO.

    The Waze app on my phone! Using Apple CarPlay. Saves me from getting stuck in traffic more than other apps.

    I have a pioneer wnex unit. The biggest advantage is carplay is wireless.

    Wireless is awesome.
