Hi,

I was looking at getting an aftermarket head unit with all the bells and whistles navi, cd, dvd, etc. I would like to keep the steering wheel contols if possible. Anyone having any suggestions on what brand and model number? I have an 05 4.4.

Thanks in Advance.

You have a few options depending onwhether or not you have and want to keep factory nav.
If so, both Kenwood and Alpine offer "car portals" that integrate with your factory unit and lends the ability to add modules (bluetooth, nav, dvd, satellite radio, hd radio etc.) Kenood KOS-V500 and KOS-V1000, Alpine VPA-B222

If you neither have a factory or don't care to keep it, you can do what I did and go with the Kenwood DNX8120. I have only had it about a week, but so far so good. There are some small issues I have with it so far, but I am hoping that my installer can help to resolve those next weekend.

Good luck! Let us know what you decide.
