Installing a new stereo in a 2014 Compass

I just got a new (to me) 2014 Compass Sport, and I'm looking at installing a new stereo.


What else do I need?

The wiring harness, I assume. Which dash kit?

How hard of an install is this? I've never done a stereo install, but I'm fine with following directions.

Thanks!

I think you are on the right track as long as you are using a simi-stock unit.

what unit do you have in mind?

I'm looking at this one: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B0091UW7F6/...SIN=B0091UW7F6

I was looking at Double DIN units because I thought it'd look better than a Single DIN unit with a lot of extra trim to fill the space.

Hmm, why don't search for those chines units powered by android OS and ready to fit directly?

This is my choice but still searching for good chines brand
