The parts.



Doing it with these parts retains all the OE functions lost when removing the factory
headunit. The Maestro's only roll is to display the gauges, so is optional to install..



Due to my current health situation, I decided to have the new stereo
professionally installed. After some research, I took it to
Extreme Dreams Automotive in Abbotsford.

While that was eing done, I sat next door at Francisco's Cafe & Catering,
enjoying a dry place to wait and sip on some coffee.




All done.



    
Apple Car Play and Gauges.




Never had the lines before.



    
Couple of night shots.




Manuals and instructions.




Left overs.



    
Changing the LCD display lettering via the PAC module.



    
Found a remote control for $15 on Amazon.



         
Made a USB/3.5mm outlet to put in th glovebox.
