Aftermarket radio worth it?

Do you guys know if I change my stock radio, which by the way has everything including, the back up camera and navigation and integrated phone would i have to change the back up camera if i install the 7" double din pioneer avic z130bt? would it be worth it?

I replaced my radio and kept the factory backup camera, you just need to add an RCA plug to the factory wires to connect it to the pioneer. The z130 comes with a microphone and everything so really not loosing anything. I prefer the new headunit, but I also replaced all the speakers and amplifier.

Yeah it comes with a small microphone yeah and the navigation as well and i like the look of it... so if im not loosing anything and only have to connect an RCA plug then i might go ahead and install the new double din. I also have replaced all my speakers in the jeep including some subs. Thanks man!

Re: Aftermarket radio worth it?

PAC makes an interface that keeps the oem back up cam and rear DVD. I used it, works like a charm.
I posted the model number in my "new head unit " thread under audio visual in wk2 forums.
