    You will need a module (mastero) to run wheel buttons, easy enough and most HU accept them. This will also integrate the camera.

    As for the other stuff, watch YouTube reviews on HU's you find. Every website doesn't list the full features of most units. My unit ended up integrating more than I had before, such as rpm, speed, Temps, air/fuel, throttle position, pedal position, ect. But the radio doesn't have a eco app. None of that was in the features or specs online.

    I just got thr kenwood ddx9904s...I like most of it. I think android auto is way over rated. YouTube, etc on the head unit will require screen mirroring. Pinoeer has some wireless tech for this. But like the note above there are some cables you will need to bypass safety features. I would search crutchfield they have great customer support and also find a local professional installer. My guy did it in 1.5 hrs, which means it would take me 3 or more.
