I did a quick search for "GPS" and surprised to find zip.
I have seen screens in dashes in various photos (I assume they represent gps capability) and am curious about the best way to do it. Or if a portable unit is the way to go?
Any input?

You're welcome. I've boiught several radios from Crutchfield. Riv is a difficult fit - there's 2 problems. It's a bit shallow behind the dash, and if you want the steering wheel controls to operate your new radio that may take some doing. The advisors will tell you that and the pros and cons. Also if you run a search on this site you may find a thread concerning aftermarket radio install.


It may be the case you could install a single-DIN size unit such as this

in the opening under the ashtray. On the 95 its where the CD player is and on the later cars it is where the CD holders are.


All that said I'm not sure I'd bother with installing one.
