Got a couple questions.

Wife wants Apple Car play for her car. No other real changes to system.

Don't need any disc media. I was looking at
Kenwood DMX9706S - https://www.sonicelectronix.com/item_177351_Kenwood-DMX9706S-Car-Stereo-Free-NVX-Wireless-Charger.html

Open to other suggestions.

Also, car is a 2015 Kia Forte5 SX - Anything else I need beside steering control adapter and wiring harness? I think I read something about a step down voltage for the backup camera? I would also like to use the factory location for the usb.

thanks

That head unit should do what you want, but I'm not sure you'll be able to use the OEM camera, I know that I couldn't in my VW, but it's totally possible that Kia used a different type of camera that you may be able to tap into. How is the factory USB wired? The wiring harness will not tap into this, you'll have to run the cables from the Kenwood. It has 2 USB inputs, and I'm guessing that only one supports CarPlay, so be sure to put the correct cable where you want it.

Thanks. from what I have found, the factory camera needs a step down voltage adapter its 6v I think. I read that one USB is for Android and the other is apple.

Still looking at other options, potentially a custom insall
