Opinion wanted

I'm going to change my radio. There are 3 aftermarket kits, which is best? What's the best navigation radio out there right now? I'd like apple play, and do any support a web browser?

And..... GO

IMHO, the PAC looks like it is supposed to be part of the dash, and strays the least from the stock look. It is a nice piece, and allows full functionality of stock options. I have the Kenwood DDX9903S, and I would give it a thumbs up after using it for 6 months or so. Before making your decision, I would read the big thread about the PAC unit, as it mentions many different head units and different peoples' experiences with various products. Good luck on your research and stereo upgrade!

The PAC is the way I'm leaning, unless someone that has it, tells me they don't like it or there are issues with it. I plan on reading thru that thread, if time allows. Looking to do this quickly as my radio died last night. I was also looking at the DDX9904s, they removed the hdmi from the 9903 to the 9904, not sure if I would use it but nice option to have. Can you access the play store or is it just pre loaded apps?

I like the stock look as well, can you control the heated seats with the PAC?

I believe so, although I haven't tried, as it's 90 degrees here with 1000% humidity. I haven't gotten too in depth with my 9903 yet, as far as mirroring, or anything other than the USB, CD, DVD, and EQ. I'm an iPhone/computer illiterate, so my learning curve is looooong...
