    14 questions already asked

    what is the dimensions of everything?
    [ tyler  Oct 04, 2020 ]
    1 answer
    That gets tricky to list because the dimensions will vary depending on the mounting method being used to install it. Our vehicle fit guide should help check if it can be installed into a vehicle: If this is a custom install, I recommend contacting an advisor using 1-800-324-9695 to discuss just how it will be mounted to get the proper dimensions.

    I do not believe so on your screen mirroring question. As far as far as custom background that's a no to.
    [ R  Sep 10, 2020 ]  Staff
    Greetings- I don't believe this unit has the mirror capability, and I haven't done much modifying past the usual equalizer and facer settings. However, I am certainly impressed with the overall unit. The display is not fliimsy at all, touchscreen is responsive, tunes sound good. I replaced the OEM speakers with Sony 3way front and Kenwood 2way rear. Very pleased with the entire package, good bang for the buck. Instructions and wiring harnesses were great. Two thumbs up at least for the capabilities that I've used.

    Installing today in 2001 Dodge Dakota Quad cab. Question regarding the parking brake wire requirement: This is required to enter any menus? I don't understand why this wire should be needed. Might need some guidance finding the parking brake wire. Side note: Installed Sony 3 way (front) and Kenwood 2 way (rear) speakers yesterday replacing 20 yr OEM speakers. Speaker brackets, wiring harnesses, and installation instructions provided by Crutchfield were spot on. Hope the head unit install is as smooth.
