Updating from the basic 4" radio to a MyLink Radio

1996 7
Hi! My name is Julia and I own a Chevrolet Cruze Limited 2016 1.4L Turbo. The radio that came with it isn't working well and if I replace it I'd rather take the opportunity to upgrade to the MyLink Radio. I don't know a lot about cars and my plan is to buy the replacement and take it to the shop so they can do it for me, but I've read many threads and I'm at a loss at what I should buy exactly. The part numbers is also something that confuses me. I found these options but I don't know how to check if they would be compatible and if I have to buy something else to go with it:

option 1

option 2

option 3

I can send photos of the car or anything that could help you help me 😭 Thank you in advance if anyone sees this.

The stock radios are programmed to match the car and Vin. They also contain settings for the car.

There's a basic 7 inch and a more advanced 8 inch that kind of operates like a tablet.

The cheap radio may or may not need wiring adapters. I could be wrong but for that kind of money. It's probably just a basic radio.

You can buy aftermarket radios. Will probably need a faceplate to go with along with radios. And maybe wires.

One guy on here installed a 10 inch tablet radio. Look for that thread.
