Options to replace factory Premium Sound / Navigation with updated HU

I have a 2010 Acura CSX Type S (civic si sedan FA5) looking at options to replace the factory Premium Sound / Navigation with a modern stereo with GPS Android car play etc.

What would be my options for modern stereos while retaining the steering wheel controls, factory antenna, etc.

I have a new set of Polk Audio DXi651s which I will swap in whenever I decide to upgrade the stereo.

Thanks.

Have you looked into getting an Android powered head unit?

www.seicane.com . Just look for your car and they do offer some units that are very interesting.

Thanks for the info.

I was leaning more towards the Pioneer AVIC NEX series or Kenwood DNX series.

Need to find out if all my factory controls, antenna, usb, mic, etc can be retained if I get one of these.

These look interesting.

I wonder what the sound quality is like on these?

Portabuddy has one. I tried it out after he installed it. The interface is faster than my 2016 Accord Touring interface. Steering wheel controls work too. Itís plug and play if you donít have a navi. Not sure how it would work with the navi harness.

Oh I see it does look nice.

The thing is my FA5 has the factory premium sound and navigation and all the stereo upgrade threads videos I come across do not talk about how to upgrade this setup instead they are all with the non navigation setup.
