I have no plans on replacing the stock touchscreen unit. I find upgrading firmware and putting in the hardware to enable Android Auto/Apple CarPlay too steep at almost $500 so I'm planning a different route to upgrade audio.
I just need to confirm if the actual radio unit is beneath the touchscreen or somewhere behind the glove compartment. After some more search it looks like some cx-3 owners have used a metra 71-7903 harness to the unit behind the glove compartment. They then used an aftermarket PAC brand line out converter that goes to aftermarket amp(s).
If anyone has done their install differently, I'd like to get your thoughts before I start buying stuff. Thanks in advance.
