    I did a search on the model number but there are no post. Does anyone have this and what are your thoughts, My head is swimming from all the no-name brands out there and am having a hard time figuring which is best, requirements: Bluetooth,NAV,HD radio,option for front and back camera, Pandora.

    I have an older version, DNX574S. I’m really happy with it, but probably can’t answer any technical questions.

    I just want to make sure all the functions work like steering wheel controls, blutooth,NAV. My stock radio is inching closer everyday to having a 5 pound sledge put through it.

    There’s a maestro controller thing that’s used to make it work with the steering wheel controls. Mine does. Apple Car Play is great.

    I think you need the iDataLink maestro to make it all work like stock

    Mine too. Every time it reboots when I take a phone call it gets a little closer.

    I just don't want to lose any factory features, especially the nav display between the gauges.

    I get one or two songs off my pandora before it will pause for a second and the radio will jump right to the Sirius preview station........happens about 25 times a day....

    That's worthy of a right cross to the screen.
