    I'd suggest a Kenwood HU of your choice with the idatalink Maestro steering wheel adapter..

    I second the Kenwood suggestion. You can get a fantastic Kenwood Excelon H/U with GPS, CD/DVD and even Apple Carplay for around $600.00. And, I know some Pioneer purists will get upset with me, but, Kenwood Excelon H/U's put out a stronger signal through their RCA outputs than Pioneer H/U's.

    ^ This is true..
    Kenwood Excelon HU preamp output is 5 volts, Pioneer is 4 volts...
    That and the Pioneer touch screen lag are a couple reasons I favor the Kenwood..
    I also like the Kenwood layout and menu..
    I've owned both..

    Kenwood Excelon also has a 2 year warranty as opposed to Pioneer's 1 year.
    My Pioneer AVH-W4400NEX crapped out on me after 18 months..

    I'd try to go wireless Carplay/Android if possible.
    I use Waze for navigation.

    Also if you intended to run Sirius/XM, as long as you have good cell service, skip on the Sirius/XM tuner and run it off the phone app.
    It has much better sound quality than the satellite tuner..
