    Exclamation New OEM Autoradio DVD GPS Chevi

    Hey all -

    I am interested in installing an aftermarket stereo head unit solution that provides:

    - iPhone/iPod integration that: allows steering wheel controls to work - And screen display of band/song, folders, etc. (preferably through glove box connection)

    - Control of iPhone/iPod songs through head unit UI

    - Possibly stream music over bluetooth and still control through steering wheel and get UI visibility on head unit

    This is the only option I have found:

    Anyone have experience with installing one? Does it cover all the above scenarios? How much should I expect for installation? Any regrets?

    Welcome to the Club!! What type of vehicle and year do you have?

    I may have over looked it, but I cannot find where it states that it uses your current steering wheel controls.

    Mine does all those .. with the exeption of Bluetooth streaming can only be controlled by the unit itself (ipod.iphone.cell fone et.) I don't see why you would want to be able to use the steering wheel controls for bluetooth??? You would get much better audio quality via usb or 3.5mm able.

    i just recently finished installing my 2 10'' RF p3s/pioneer amp to the factory HU.. going to upgrade maybe in 2-3 months to a aftermarket HU
