Question Sigle DIN or Double DIN??

Is the commander a single Din radio or double din radio? What can I fit in that opening? I heard motorized radio units with a pop up screen will not fit?

What year?

It is not a single DIN. It is a 1.5 DIN or greater.

You can get a filler for the space depending on what you want to put in. If it's an 08 model, it's 1.5 Din and duoble din for MyGig and if it's an 06 OR 07 it's either bigger than double Din for the NAV unit or 1.5 Din for the rest.

Edit: corrected as per Rubi

On 2008's the NAV and non-NAV MyGig units are dual DIN (4" tall). The others are 1.5 DIN (3" tall).

On 2006's and 2007's the NAV unit is larger than a dual DIN. They are more like 2.5 DIN (5" tall). The others are 1.5 DIN (3" tall).

Thanks Rubi, I didn't realize the REC units were that much bigger.
