    probably need a wire harness...talk to the install guys there, they should have them...someone told me a few days ago in another thread that for the controls to work, you need the more expensive harness.

    Some of the new HUs on the market are compatable with the steering wheel controls, but most are not.

    Depending on what manufaturer you decide to go with, you will probably need to get an adapter modual.

    I have one for my Pioneer and it works fine.

    My eclipse 726e worked with the stock controls no problem and no harness needed for it either.

    When I got my recent new HU from Crutchfield one of the accessories they listed was an adapter for the steering wheel controls, to still work with the Pioneer HU. It ran about $70, I recall. Asked a local sound install company and they confirmed I would need this. Wasn't interested in spending that much more for now, but will probably have it added in later, as I'm with you - I like the steering wheel controls.

    Eclipse units are made by the same company that makes the stock units in our trucks. Everything plugs right into the back and works perfectly.

    Unless you are independently wealthy and completely devoid of mechanical ability, avoid best buy at all costs. I am in under $600 installed on my Pioneer Avic-X920BT with adapters and dash trim kit. I got my parts from Amazon for much less than Worst Buy and installed myself. Plenty of information on installing yourself here or on other sites. Post up here and I am sure someone can help you save a butt load of money for other mods!
