Icon7 My New Clarion MAX675VDII

Actually swapped it in about two weeks before Christmas but just now getting some pics up. Sorry about the low quality pics. They were taken with my cell phone camera and I have no other option.

Took some minor trimming to the stock radio bezel around the opening to fit the double DIN size of the screen but I like it much better than the flip out monitor. This is in a much better place for both my eyes and my hands. This one also has the best touchscreen capabilities than any other I've seen.

Here you can see how it flips down for the CD access.

Also bought and installed the bluetooth adapter for Clarion so now I have hands-free in my truck.

not much trimming. there's a small lip around the inside of the radio opening that needs to be trimmed, about like an 1/8th of an inch on each side.

and my old Clarion screen used the same exact wiring harness as this, so it was plug and play. I already had the parking brake bypassed before so it's just as easy.
