Hello guys and gals. I'm looking into putting a double din infotainment system into my 2001 chevy Silverado z71 extended cab. I have looked at several and I really haven't any experience with these units. I can't find my way out of the backyard without gps so that's important also I like my cd's and want to use my phone which is android. I really don't need sirus satellite radio but would probably use it. I also would need the backup camera. Any suggestions from you who have gone down that road? what would you suggest. Which unit and which install hardware do you suggest. Any info will be appreciated.

i recomend going on crutchfields site, and spend a few hours on there or send those specs to a rep there and they will select the ideal unit and mounting kit for you...average retail prices and some decent deals but they have everything under the sun

Get one that supports android auto,I have a kenwood with gps and I use my phone 99% of the time since garmin wants $65 to update the maps and my phone does it for free plus I get traffic updates on the phone for free to
You can use Here maps to which work when you're out of cell service
To do a double din in a 01 you need to mod the factory trim or get the metra kit or make the 03+ trim fit
