Default 2009 tech questions

I have a 2009 quad cab 4x4 big horn edition. I have two questions
1- will on on star fmv work in my truck? I was told it would deactivate my auto headlamps when I change the mirror
2- I also heard that I can change the radio to any stock radio (ie- a 6 disc player or nav system ) and all the wiring would match???? I have sock single disc, sirius radio in dash now.
Would appreciate any advice or pointers given... Thanks

The radios are just about all plug and play.. You didn't say if you had the uConnect or not.. If you do then changing to any radio but the RER or RHR is definitely plug and play.. If you don't, then you may want to opt for the RER or RHR radios as they have the uConnect built into the radio.. You can always disconnect the other uconnect if you choose like I did when I installed the RHR.. I have a write up in here somewhere I did a while ago. With any nav radio you want to install, you will need to also add the gps antenna into the truck. If you have the uConnect, then changing out the mirror would eliminate the microphones needed for the hands free/Bluetooth portion to work.

As far as the auto headlights, the mirror isn't connected into that unless you have the auto dimming of the high beams (I don't think that was available in 2009).. There should be a little dome thing in the front of the dash which takes care of the auto on/off function of the headlights.
