You will need a converter inorder to use all steering wheels functions from bluetooth and it will be better for your system to get this converter since most head units dont have as much power and aftermarket stereos want. My converter is JL and was about 25$.

Looks nice!

What NAV does it use?

I"m not sure what Nav system it uses, but looks good to me and works good as well. Easy to install.. Just plug and play since they provide all the wiring with clips. I did it by myself. Only issue this has is, if a USB flash drive is connected to its USB output, when you listen to the radio, it suddenly plays the USB. It's not a big issue. I just remove the flash drive when i want to listen to the radio.

Any idea if the USB issue also happens if you're running something like an iPod? I just leave an iPod nano hooked up to the USB in the car all the time with the generic stock head unit and it seems to work fine.

I haven't tried with the iPod. I think i coudn't use the stock USB outlet and play it after i installed this. Btw, in this system even if you remove the USB and plug it again, it continues from where it stoped last..

I bet there's a setting to change it from autoplay during the radio - my old aftermarket had that somewhere deep in the settings menu.

Sounds nice! I mostly use the AUX since my USBs are pretty thick (64GB!) for the head to troll.
