    I put a pioneer AVIC 7200 NEX in mine several years ago.
    Gained Bluethooth, HD Radio, backup camera. Lost the HUD data from the radio, outside temp display and voice control.

    just had a pioneer 4500nex installed in my 2006 V. Was really pleased with installation. Panel around radio was pretty much like original but solid black. DVD CD did away with old CD slot. Front $ Rear camera. Wireless connection with my apple phone so nav is always up to date. Steering wheel controls work with unit. Just trying to get use to linking Spotify,iHeartRadio,and pandora. Only thing that is out of original is small Mic on dash but can be removed without ruining originality. Best modification you could ever put in these cars.

    Praise the LORD V Happy.

    Thanks for the encouraging information. DO you still have the cruise function?

    GOD Bless you and your family.

    Typically the only thing you lose with an aftermarket stereo is the HUD radio station display. Everything else will work as before. Even the speakers sound better with more separation

    l remember you had a newer radio installed in your XLR. I thought you had to leave the CD slot in the car. Did you ever install a camera? The reason for the 4500 model was for the two camera's. I wanted a CD because of the sound quality.

    pS you are correct about the heads up station display.

    Nope, no stock cd player in the car. Camera was installed at the same time as stereo.
