Default Looking for some suggestions on new stereo for the LW

This will replace the OE 6 CD/Cassette stereo system the LW currently has, which works perfectly, but totally incompatible with any of today's high tech devices/technologies.

Standard options wish list
  • 7" Touch screen
  • Plug-n-play
  • Bluetooth
  • Android auto compatible
  • Micro SD card port (for stored music/books)
  • Built-in Navigation/GPS (would prefer it being WAZE compatible - for real time traffic)
  • AUX port
  • USB port
  • CD would be nice, but not necessary if SD equipped
  • Backup camera equipped (or ability to connect aftermarket camera)
  • HD Radio equipped
  • Don't really need a remote (just another device to suck down batteries or get lost)
  • Now the clincher, I want to stay under 3 "Franklins"

So far, I've looked at the Pioneer AVH-2300NEX and the JVC KW-M740BT.

With that budget you're limited for sure. Since you're an android user have you looked into any Chinese made android radios? I've purchased them from Pumpkin and Joying and have been pleased. I haven't put one in a Saturn, but they do have universal models.

So I decided on the Pioneer AVH-2440NEX. It hit most of my boxes. It came with a old to new wire harness. BUT, it seems there are 2 wire harnesses plugged into the back of my current radio. In the PIC attached, the wire harness that came with the new radio connects to the larger of the connectors (blue one on the left), but that leaves the 2 small gray connectors on the right. Anyone know what this harness connects to/supports?

Below are factory radios - one with separate amp, one without.
