Its called a double DIN. I have pioneer touch screen w/out nav. I really like it. I would same go to a store and check out one in person. That's the only way I can decide.

I have a Pioneer Avic F700BT. It's great and the aftermarket for it is amazing.

With the alpine double din radios and some of the single din radios. You can got to alpine's website and download background wallpaper. All you need is a USB flashdrive. which you can also hold music on and play if u dont have a IPOD

The radio I installed has no cd player so u eitther need a mp3 player ipod or the usb flash drive
