    Has anyone here upgraded their in dash to a 7" touch screen?

    I own a 2010 Silverado Ext Cab. My ultimate goal is to replace in order to get 4-5v outputs and not give up the bluetooth, onstar, phone, ipod, steering wheel controls and etc. Without being raped for $1000 or so.

    If anyone replies I'll add much much more detail...

    Thanks :happy:

    For the preamp outputs to get a higher voltage cleaner signal to amps.

    You will need adapters to keep your onStar and another one for your steering wheel controls...sooo.... with those adapters and the deck with 4v pre amp you should be solidly raped for $1000.00.

    To play sometimes you have to pay....its that or lower your standards :)

    the 5160 is a good one, I was going to go with that one, however it sported features I would never use. so I chose a different one (my jvc)

    Pay to Play

    Yeah I figure this much! The only thing that bothers me is the marketing of these stereos now. $100+ for each add on! for Bluetooth? Really? and on top of that mount some little b/s mic when my factory mic is flush mounted and blends with the headliner! It's all about sticking it to the consumer!:grrrrrr: Lmao! :rofl:

    I have heard of people able to use the oem microphone by tapping into it, as well with the gps antenna... but I wouldn't try it unless your good with electrical work...
