    I think you might have to give a bit more info on what model etc.

    DONT be tempted to fit any of the double din Pioneer radios that double as reverse camera monitors unless you can live with a dirty great warning message about the image possibly being reversed plastered across the top half of the screen. It's downright dangerous when you use the camera as a rear view mirror substitute, as cars, especially white ones suddenly appear from behind the warning leading to soiled pants moments I can tell you. I am having mine replaced next month.

    Loads of reasonably priced double din radios with screens on EBay.

    Eddie is supplying an extremely reasonably priced Blaupunkt/Waeco unit that is specifically designed, I believe to marry up perfectly with Waeco cameras. It has a dvd and CD player, radio, remote control etc., and is still less expensive than a more expensive thing. It looked really good at the show and is genuinely surprisingly well priced.

    Alternatively, if you only want to use it with a camera that looks downwards when you reverse or can put up with Big Brothers warning you can have my almost new Pioneer for a very small consideration when Eddie has swapped it out?

    I have an Android double din radio with 2 camera inputs. If you want your camera on all the time (as a rear view mirror) it wont work as the camera inputs cancel all other media. Also I had to go through 3 units to get a good one!!! I use my continuous rear view camera on a seperate screen and sideways looking cameras on the din unit.

    I would not have another unit combined with a radio. Ive put up with it for 5 years but really its allmost useless, the slightest bit of sunshine and you cant see anything and its in the wrong place. Im going to change to a stand alone monitor with a hood fitted back on the side out of the sun.
