    Replacing factory stereo?

    I've got a 2004 SRX with the basic 6 disc system. Thinking about replacing this with a new system. Any suggestions? I'm in Aurora, Colorado. If I replace this stereo I'm sure I'll lose the DIC, driver information center.

    Thank you!!!

    I have a thread on here about replacing a headunit, yes it can be done, on the thread shows what you need for steering controls, and fascia, do not know about 04 but o7 shows DIC on the instrument panel and I did not loose mine with a after market unit.

    Where can you buy such a DIC-Aftermarket-Module?

    Can you tell me what type of radio you had installed and who did it for you? I've got a 2004 SRX and your setup looks great. Thanks!!!

    Re: Replacing factory stereo?

    I know this is an old thread but maybe someone is around to answer. Just picked up a 2005 SRX and I'm looking at the aftermarket installation. I'm looking to do it like dredd shows but when I popped off the face of the console it has a huge motherboard that runs the entire face of it, what exactly is it for and does it need to be kept (prevents me from creating a hole for the new dub din to fit in).

    I added an amp in my Equinox and got everything from Crutchield. Great co. to deal with and their customer support is top notch! Beats dealing with the stores such as Best Buy.
