Anyone have an aftermarket head unit?

I'd like to see a picture of a Commander with an aftermarket head unit. Are there dashkits out there that will support another head unit/radio in the Commander? I've been searching but so far have come up with nothing. I went to Circuit City and the dash kit they had that they thought would work, actually will not. Any pictures out there would be greatly appreciated.

Re: Anyone have an aftermarket head unit?

It is probably too new to have a dash kit yet.
But with that Aux jack and a mp3 player, who needs aftermarket, unless you are going full blown system with amps, subs and stuff.

I found a dash kit that is compatible with the commander:

I have the stock radio with my commander w/o nav and want to add sirius but want to be able to see all the channel/song info. So i'm going to swap it out and get a pioneer head unit with sirius.

Re: Anyone have an aftermarket head unit?

I guess that works. I am just so sick of airplay.
I like the mp3 players, because I listen to what I want to listen to.
Not what someone else picks. Just me though.

Re: Anyone have an aftermarket head unit?

I'm with Rooney2oons! Sometimes it is enjoyable to listen to Sirius... like on my way to the office in the morning... listining to CNN and/or Fox is good way to keep up with current events. However, the rest of the time it is cool to have the 6 mp3 disk loaded with my fav mixes.

Yeah, I have thousands of MP3's, but you'll never know what's new unless you listen to what's playing everynow and then; and Sirius plays the latest stuff that hasn't hit the mainstream yet... and that's the reason i'd like to be able to see the artist and song titie, which an aftermarket head unit will do

Re: Anyone have an aftermarket head unit?

I had the base system in mine and changed it out. I put in the Alpine CDA-9856 head unit with the xm radio tuner. I also changed out all the speakers. Sounds incredible. And as you can see from mypantsaretorn's pics, they do make a kit for it. It is the same as what is used in the 2005 Grands.

Re: Anyone have an aftermarket head unit?

Here's my Alpine D310 w/ Headrest units: (By the way... anyone figure out a subwoofer solution yet?? besides throwing a box in the cargo area that takes up too much space?? I'm thinking of using the center console area under the center vents ... where the stock center DVD controls are supposed to go)
