Replacing radio in greyhawk

I want to replace the radio that came with my Greyhawk with one that is better. It isnt the stock Ford radio that is for sure. I "think" its a magnadyne? The one thing im sure of is that i know that the radio plays thru all the speakers in the cab, AND the coach and wanted to know if there is something i need to know before i try to change ot out to a different unit.

2006. Greyhawk 31ss

I just changed from the M1 Magnadyne to the M3 unit. It is an upgrade in some ways. The cameras (I have rear and turn cameras) are on almost immediately instead of needing two or three seconds to warm up. The radio can be adjusted to either cab only or coach only with the faded and balance. I'm pretty sure that the M1 did that as well but I never tried. The new unit also has Bluetooth for phone but I haven't tried it out yet. If you hook the orange wire directly to ground, you can have DVD play on the screen while driving if you wish. Lastly, the screen looks better.

I lost the NAV that I had with the M1 but I don't mind as I used my Garmin anyway. The stock NAV sucked. If it is a must have, get the M4 unit for another $200.

I paid $299 for a reconditioned unit directly from Magnadyne. New was another $100 and gives you a one year warranty. Figure another $200 for the M4 which gives you the NAV capability. My radio promptly died 2000 miles after I bought my RV and was not able to be repaired so that's why I went to the M3.
