Of course last tune and power level will be saved in the programmer box under the hood. But regardless if u want to use the app to switch tunes or watch gauges if you need to restart it that’s what has to be done n it will still upload the peramiters everytime just the same. Any way my only point was I run my quad on my deck almost everyday it’s a perfect display of my gauges. Aloha

Dirtbilly It was done by my friend who owned the truck before me, he used plastic filler to re shape the area around the radio and then sanded and painted it with semi goss trim paint.

Nice how did you do it? I'm thinking of using heat to try to bend my wood grain bezel to help it look less hacked. I have a Pioneer AVH-2440NEX on order and it's a full double din.

I run my Quadzilla on my kenwood double din all the time here is a pic of my double din instal with the Quadzilla being displayed.
Also I read very often of people having issues with connection using the Bluetooth and androids. Makes me very glad I went with WiFi and iPhone instead.
I don’t ever have connection issues the most that happens to me (not very often) is when I turn off the truck and I go to turn truck back on my iPads not connected anymore. I just Gota click the home button hit the quad app again n bam it starts updating the peramiters for the tune.

beren I bought the Pioneer AVH-3400nex. Fry's had a special for $300. The downside is it blocks my vents with the flip up screen. Has anyone tried to use heat or something to bend down the dash bezel so it doesn't look so bad if you have one of the wood trim ones? I like this radio but man i miss those vents in summer so I have to retract the screen

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.

Stormin08 my note 4 sits right in front of the gauge cluster, and does all of that flawlessly....minus a dvd.

mykeb 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.
