I decided I want to upgrade my RES radio. At first I was looking into OEM replacements and now I am thinking aftermarket. I want to keep my Sirius, and steering wheel controls. I would like Bluetooth, and I would like NAV if it doesnt raise the price like crazy! ANyways, what does everyone recommend?

I was set on Pioneer (its what I usually have bought for other cars), but some people have tried to steer me away from them recently. I guess they don't work as well in the cold. I would also like a touch screen if possible, so I don't know if that matters.

Please let me know what the options are.

If you can, wait til after the CES (Consumer Electronics Show) in January is done, you will see whats new in technology. Rumor has it, Alpine will have a sick new radio.

I have a Kenwood DNX691HD and love it. It was 600 maybe? I dont really remember but it has everything. I think you would have to buy an extra thing for the steering wheel controls (made by Axxess or something like that) and for the XM radio but its doable. I just didnt like the Pioneer because of the buttons for the volume. I like having a knob for the volume and I love Garmin maps on the Kenwoods.
I got rid of my Uconnect 3.0 and wanted something with Nav and also mainly that had the pre-outs for an amplifier. I added 1-12" sub behind the passenger seat in my truck.

I am wondering the same thing about aftermarket, I don't want to lose the stock Bluetooth functionality or steering wheel controls. Hope the aftermarket world knows about the Chrysler systems and what is all connected through the factory radios.

Well aftermarket radios have bluetooth and you can buy a module to retain your steering wheel controls. Pac audio makes several modules that help integrate into factory systems.
