I'm actively looking for a 2020 unit. If I get my hands on one, I'll report back on how plug and play it is.

Like mentioned, the backup camera is simple a RCA jack. It doesn't care whether the camera is on the back, in the mirror, or in space; it'll work all the same.

Just go aftermarket. With YouTube and the internet the install was simple. A couple of hours. I did crutchfield and paid 25 bucks for them to do the wiring harness. I did have to flash the Idata link but it was easier. Just plug everything in. Plus it looks factory. I got the pioneer 2550nex.

The crutch field harness service is soooo worth it.

Personally I think even the best aftermarket headunits still look ~10 years behind quality OEM units. Additionally, it's tough to find a price-right, large screen aftermarket headunit with an analog volume knob etc.

To each their own.

Check out the Sony AX-5000, no volume knob (buttons), but it looks damn near factory.

How is the UI? My 3 year old pioneer is so laggy even out of the box when I installed it brand new.

Super snappy and it doesnít look flashy like most aftermarket units. It doesnít have a ton af unnecessary features like them either, so less to slow it down. Iíve had 5 aftermarket radios in my life and this is the first one I truly like better than the OEM one in every single way.

No volume knob is a deal breaker for me. So annoying on the Type R that they brought it back.

It depends. I too was a fan of knobs, but the 2015 OEM HU here in the middle east has multi-finger gestures. Just slide two fingers right to increase the volume or left to decrease. It works for other functions too like Mute, previous / next track, etc.



Stopped missing the knobs once you get the hang of it.
