Default Any advice on a radio swap?

I know this has been asked before, but searches of this subject produce somewhat frustrating results. I appreciate any advice members of the team can provide.

I have a 2010 Doge Ram with a factory RES radio. I enjoy my Sirius access and do not want to lose that capability with a radio swap, but am interested in a pain-free swap to a touchscreen radio. I know I will require the Hi-Speed CANBUS (?) if I use a factory model, but am concerned about the 'security' and 'flash' requirements if I buy one off of Ebay. I truly am confused as it seems there are so many variables involved in what seems like a simple swap.

Is there a viable aftermarket plug-and-play option available, or should I search for a used factory replacement? I've looked at factory radio replacements and its quite confusing. I do not need the NAV option, but I would like to retain the Uconnect, Sirius, steering wheel controls, etc.....

Any advice or guidance is greatly appreciated.

If you want factory and non nav the rbz will work plug and play. You do needa high speed unit and only 2012 models have a security code. You can pick one up fairly cheap and its a great looking add on.

I was just looking at a RBZ 430 non nav radio, this place has them and claims it's guaranteed to work.
