Looks great and thinking this is pretty much what I want also. A couple questions, if you don't mind-

Steering wheel controls all good with the Alpine?
Metra dash kit? Repainted or as-is?
Did you buy a package via Crutchfield?
If self install, how did that go?


Thanks

Use the XMSirius app instead of a tuner. The sound quality is way better. SiriusXM app is also Carplay approved.

Thanks for the info. Now I'm torn between the two. Love the look and screen size of the 309 but the wireless of the 107. Damn Alpine ILX-F309 Installed May wait and see if there is an updated 309 model at the end of the year. Assuming they will release at Sema.

The key to the steering wheel controls is to get the maestro RR. They all work perfectly then. I used the Metra black kit. You canít tell the difference between the stock trim and it. I bought from Crutchfield as a bundle with their Pre-wiring option and it was pretty much plug and play. Get everything from them in one shot. Also watch YouTube vids on how to disassemble the dash....it super easy.

Love the look! I am running an SR5 though so I think my trim is the lighter gray. Anyone else swapped out the climate control trim in an SR5 to match the darker metra?

You can do that, but then you'll have to swap the trim down below by the shifter as it won't match anymore. Not sure if anyone makes aftermarket for those parts, so you'll be buying factory. That'll be $$

I may make the switch as well if they come out with wireless.

Looks great. Any issues (other than price) that would keep you from recommending this unit?

Following back up on this thread... any updates 9-10 months later? Love the look of the 309 and itís big screen and hate the leftover real estate on the sides of the 107 and other double din units. Also really want to go wireless CarPlay. Lastly, Iíve heard the 309 doesnít dim with the lights, any experience with that? Thanks!

New Pioneer Head Units

These brand new Pioneer Head Units look like Halo's with better screens and USB-C charging.
