This double-DIN stereo will wire directly into your existing system. It can play music, DVDs, and the radio. Easily navigate the LCD touchscreen to use the built-in Bluetooth. One standout feature of this stereo is the number of ports and plugs it has — USB, SD, auxiliary, audio/video, and rear and front camera for inputs. You’ll like the sound performance that this stereo can achieve with a maximum power of 80 watts x 4. Other nice features are the built-in microphone, auxiliary sound output, and steering wheel control integration.

Unfortunately, the music you have playing will stop while the backup camera is engaged. You will then have to turn it back on when you’re done backing up. You may also find the owner’s manual hard to read due to some translation issues. You also can’t connect an external microphone, although there is one built-in.

This extra-large double-DIN stereo unit mounts into a single-DIN space and has a nine-inch VGA display screen. This gives you a bright, nine-inch touchscreen without having to cut into your dash. It comes with built-in Bluetooth and ports for USB and HDMI. The stereo is ready for streaming SiriusXM and has a built-in HD radio tuner. You’ll appreciate that it displays song titles, album art, and station information while it plays music. A standout feature is the iDatalink connectivity, enabling the screen to show vehicle information and parking assist cameras. The sound quality also stands out thanks to the nine-band parametric Dual HD EQ, six-channel time correction, and MediaXpander HD.

One drawback of this double-DIN unit is that the screen display has a low resolution. You may also find that the user interface requires several steps to navigate through the screens. There are also a limited number of colors and customization options.
