With a little work you can do a Ipad instead of a double din

Double Din Install in 2nd gen ram-img_0091.jpg

I mentioned earlier that I chose to install the Alpine F309 instead of trying to install a double din and thought I'd post a pic. I'm very happy with it even though it sticks out in front of the dash a inch or so. It is a massive 9" display which I love. Installation was straightforward and love Carplay and it doesn't block anything else on the dash. I've purchased the accessory to allow a additional screen to show light switches, etc but haven't found time to install it yet. Just another option if you don't want to hack the bezel up but still want more of the features a double din offers.

Holy Crap that is large, and expensive. Here I am wanting to get away with a $200 CarPlay receiver…

You cant connect your phone to the factory radio without wires going everywhere.
You cant play DVDs,
Cant watch YouTube vids
Cant access GPS thru factory radio
All things can be done keeping the factory radio, but you would have to buy a bunch of add on stuff...seperate GPS seperate 12v DVD player, etc.
When it is cheaper, more efficient and cleaner to just install a double-din.

my note 4 sits right in front of the gauge cluster, and does all of that flawlessly....minus a dvd.

Expensive? Yeah, probably. Depends on how you look at it. Had this truck for 21 years. Never made a payment on it since I had a trade-in and paid cash for the balance. Have you seen the window sticker for a 2019 Cummins with the Nav package? I'm old now too and need that 9" screen to see. Carplay is all worth it IMO. Good luck.
