Options for a budget double din.

I’m hoping you can give me some suggestions for a double din with apple play that is back up camera friendly. I’m looking to buy one for my daughter’s 08.

There are way to many choices out there and I don’t know what makes some decent and others garbage.

I’d like to make a list of a few that are around $300-500 and then see if any deals might be had between now and Christmas.

Thanks for the help.

Start with Crutchfield.com and use the available site filters to narrow down your options.

I always recommend staying with a known brand like Pioneer, Kenwood, Alpine. The off brands are less money per feature, but there's a good reason why.

Once I had my 2-3 top choices in mind I went into the local Best Buy and did a quick check to see if I preferred the ergonomics and menu configurations better on one over the others.

I waited till beginning of the year and got a Pioneer 2300 off EOY clearance. Since the new models start to come out in Feb. or so. My 2300 was around 300 I believe...otherwise watch for someone pulling theirs and trading in. The unit is not a problem, if you have steering wheel controls that you want to retain, you'll need a kit for that, plus a wiring harness, plus a kit to install the unit, expect 1-200 more for that stuff.
