    I have a 2005 VZ LX8 Adventra
    the wife would like to keep the factory 6 stacker but i would like bluetooth music streaming and a rear view camera

    I have the factory VDO Dayton GPS unit in the dash and it works but its almost useless

    The wife wants to keep the dash stock looking so can I replaced the GPS screen with a modern cheap rear view camera and if so who has done this and how was it mounted?

    also how do i get bluetooth music streaming? I have an FM receiver but quality is not great
    is there a way to fix an AUX cable to the factory headunit?

    I have also swapped out the front 1 way speaker for 2 way pioneers but it still sounds flat
    I kept the rear door 2 ways as they look like a decent speaker
    I have turned the gain up on the factory sum amp and bass now sounds ok
    Should I fit front splits for a clearer sound? or will stock headunit still make everything sound flat

    cheers

    JBL GTO speakers. Just the fronts will be good enough.

    You won’t get something that does all that stuff and fits in the gps space below the headunit, well not likely.

    Reverse cameras that display in the rear view mirror would be a thing.

    Replace the existing head unit with an Apple CarPlay or Android Auto compatible head unit. (Camera will display on these)
    Maybe hook up an old skool stacker under the seat.
