Default Touchscreen

Finally upgraded to a touchscreen. 7 inch Pioneer. Gonna be nice being able to connect to it with bluetooth lol. Although now that I'm looking at the pic, I should've color matched the install kit trim.

I assume you trimmed the dash? How do you like that unit? Iíve been looking at the same basic one except Iím looking at the single din flip up unit in case I need to put it back to a cheaper unit.

Yeah I did trim the dash. Havn't had too much time with it yet but so far I really like it. Blue tooth connection is instant. That's about as far as I have made it feature wise, but it's real easy to use and navigate through. Still gotta fine tune the audio settings, but so far it sounds great. I have always preferred Pioneers sound wise.

I have a Kenwood single din and it ran me like 350 about 6 years ago and itís starting to crap out. Bluetooth doesnít reconnect after a few times and it wonít play sound sometimes so I have to pull the whole thing out. I think Iím going to buy it tomorrow and hope I like it.

What model is that? Does it have screen mirroring? I'm wanting one that does to run torque pro on the dash.

Looks good. I've been thinking about doing this for awhile.

How much trimming was involved? Which interior trim kit is that?

It's just one of the lower models, 300EX. So doesn't have all the bells and whistles. I'm just using it for music and the bluetooth. Not sure about some of the higher models.

Had to trim both sides, and upper and lower part of the opening. The dash kit is Metra 95-5817.

Kinda enjoying this. Lots of different possibilities to mirror your phone into it. I have to get one of the micro switches so I donít have to mess with the e-brake to get it to play Videos. Other than that itís pretty sweet. I flipped the dash kit around the so the pocket is up top now instead of underneath it so it was a little lower and didnít stick up above the dash. And it has lots of options for amp outputs. USB and AUX inputs on the back so the front looks very clean when itís closed. And it keeps playing closed which is nice too. It also has Apple car play and android auto through the USB cord so I have no need for an aux cord. The double Bluetooth connection is sweet too.
