Double DIN head units

2410 3
I've been thinking about getting a double DIN touchscreen unit to replace the factory head unit. Crutchfield.com lists several that "fit" and I'm fully capable of installing it myself.

My question is this: by adding one, how would the configuration functions be accessed in the future? For example, the settings to change the lock out functions, exit lighting, etc.

You do it with an interface integrator kit? I forgot the name, its a $170 wiring harness that allows you to control the setting through the steering wheel controls, which might be a little slow or uncomfortable.

I'd recommend you get a tablet, not only it's cheaper, but you get an "improved" OEM look and I'm sure with the Metra and Scoche kits you have to break a bit the Gloss Black Y to fit the double din.

I agree with Xasas . there are a few threads available that detail the installation of a 7"
Tablet into the dash . I am thinking Xtreme Aaron did one and a few others . my tablet just floats .


Also your time your money your cruzen your choice !

I want something with a clean, factory installed appearance. I originally wanted the MyLink system, but it wasn't available on the lot in an Eco at the time. I also want to add a backup camera.

Pioneer, Kenwood, and JVC all make very nice and we'll reviewed models that offer the functionality and appearance that I'm looking for, but I wasn't sure how it would affect the availability of the settings menus that are utilized by the current unit.
