I went with a Kenwood as well:
With the appropriate adapter it was easy to swap with the factory
Yes! I still had it!! It still works!.
Anyway, you just have to be careful with the wiring as you push it back in
but it fits.
I was using an external JVC HD radio unit but wanted it built-in and
to get this unit before these type of units disappear altogether.
Sirius/XM is not built in but can be added. I don't care for their
service but posted
this for anyone looking for HD built-in.. (hang in there HD radio!!!)
Sounds fine. The only thing you may not like is the screen is a bit
difficult to read.
This can be adjusted for a fair readable screen but once set up it doesn't
that much. But I listen to radio quite a bit if not listening to audio
books for long
Remote is good. Plenty of buttons to control the unit.
