New Stereo Installed

Just came back from getting this baby put in my Black Betty. Sounds tons better than the stock radio and much louder. Not as much bass as I would like so may put in new speakers down the road. All in all, very happy with it.

Nice! Is this a standard size, or are there screens that take up the entire space (no bezel)?

I have not seen a non-GM option that does not require a bezel.

I also installed my new radio yesterday. I purchased the complete package from Crutchfield including all of the harnesses and adapters. One suggestion, buy the prewired harness option. It will save you a bunch of time and makes the install basically plug & play. The steering wheel control adapter took a bit of time to understand and program, but after several attempts it recognized the radio and everything works great including the chimes.

The one I have doesn't require an adapter for the SWC, it is built-in.

The radio is an Atoto A6.

Does your prewired harness have RCA plugs for the audio connections to the radio? If it does, can you give me the part number?

I think having a front camera is a great idea!

It did not. Just the hard wire connections. Looking at the number of connections that the Crutchfield tech had to make putting the harness together, the $25 was well worth the time and reading diagrams it would have taken me!

I had mine professionally installed. Looked like way too much work for me.
