Doing an in-dash drop in, slide in, or permanent installation does not mean sacrificing the radio controls, as I've learned. Do a YouTube search for F-150 Tablet install and there are some impressive installations for tablets of all sorts. To keep radio controls one resourceful chap extended the wire harness that connects to the back of the radio, trimmed the original panel, and put it in the glovebox if he needed them. Technically, with steering wheel controls, the only controls needed are the top series of buttons. For more info, check out Soundman Car Audio installations on YouTube.
