Default Replacement Stereo

Team. I am at a little bit of a loss here. Any help is much appreciated.

I want to replace the stereo in my 2011 JK (non nav with amp and sub) with something that has nav and can take a reverse camera.

I rang the local car audio place and they basically ended up at the $2k mark.

Now I don't expect this to be $200 but I didn't expect that. I get the feeling there was an over quote on the harnesses, etc.

Anyway, I was thinking one of the Apple car play head units would do the trick. This would save the need for reliance on another mapping product.

Any more reasonable suggestions of what could work? I am confident for install just not across the what works and what do I need questions.

Thanks in advance.

I was looking into this too I have decided not to do it and use a 10 inch tablet mounted between the visers. Have ordered a wifi reverse cam. I have an 07 no bluetooth so will most likely run an aux cable possibly to the rear of the stereo (maybe the front). Also looking into the possibility of using the video out on the dvd player with a wifi or bluetooth tx more out of interest.
Hopefully someone has a neat replacement head unit though

sony xav-ax100 looks like a neat and affordable unit. I think quadratic might do a harness for it also.

I have seen this on the Quadratec website so assume it fits nicely. I've seen some don't and need trimming.

JB seems to have this for an okay price, so it's the front runner for now.

I assume it could take a reverse cam as well.

Anyone installed one of these?

I lie actually. It's $730 or thereabouts. Converted its only $500 ish plus s+h from the States.

Is there any issues with bringing it onion from there - can you adjust radio setup? I know that's an option in my fusion for my camper.

Mine is an Alpine INE-W960A. Great unit.
Awesome sound, great navigation, reversing camera and Hema (equivalent) off road maps.
Not the cheapest, but the best I could find.

Cheers, Craig

Thinking that unit myself, look at eBay stores. $585 posted or thereabouts. Keep in mind there's more than just replacing the head unit. If you want it to work with the stock amp and steering wheel controls then you need to buy an interface like the PAC audio RP4-CH11. If you're putting in a new amp then don't need to worry about the amp side of that unit but still need steering wheel controls unit. If you want to keep the factory sub in the boot then you pretty much need to keep the stock amp, but that means keeping the stock speakers and power which are fairly average.

I have a Sony XAV-AX100 in my car; it is easy to use with a simple and clear interface, the screen is above average with it's colours and sunlight legibility, the touch-sensitivity is excellent, the sound quality is average (good) with a good range of adjustments, it has Bluetooth with AD2P for audio streaming, camera input, Apple Carplay and Android Auto. I got mine for $550 on special from Supercheap but I have seen they go for around the same price on Ebay.

The only negatives are that it doesn't have DAB, a DVD/CD player or direct app integration to Spotify or Pandora (you have to use Carplay/AAuto or your phone via BT). The surprise positive point is that the volume rotary dial is easy to find and much easier to use without switching your attention to the head unit - very underrated compared to the narrow small button below the screen on my old Kenwood unit.
