Possible issues with Head Unit Replacement for 2006 Limited 5.7L
Can anyone say if there are any issues with replacing the REC headunit in a 2006 Commander Limited (5.7L) and how it might affect the stock DVD system that exists in the back? My Limited has REC with NAV with the rear entertainment system and I am looking to upgrade / replace the existing REC and wonder how that it will affect theat rear DVD system. Does a replacement make it non funtional?
I am not so much worried about the hand controls or NAV, but I would like to keep that DVD system in the back if I can. I am looking at just upgrading the headunit to something with BT to integrate phone and be able to switch the unit myself; so something Plug n Play would be great.
I have seen people speaking of Android systems and Pioneer, and that there are ways to keep hand controls and dimming capability. I am just hoping there is a cost effective method.
I might just go with the option that member here did and just added an AUX input to the REC, but dang its such an archaic system...
