Post Comparable 2013 JBL Head Unit replacement

I have a 2013 Tundra Platinum ( crewmax ) and am looking for a comparable replacement for the JBL E7026 head unit. When I say comparable, I would prefer that the replacement be of the same factory dimensions the JBL fits.

Toyota's involunteered safety features have had me at a loss and would like to be able to use the both radios, nav system, reliable bluetooth for handsfree capability and, if I so prefer but not a deal breaker, CarPlay functionality.

Just not getting the insight on equipment from local retailers.

Any suggestions will and are appreciated.

A lot of threads on aftermarket radios on the forum.
They are generally single or double DIN, I'm guessing your 2013 is double DIN.
So any double DIN radio will fit in your truck.

Look around on Crutchfield's sight.
Put your vehicle and options you want in their search.
It is at least a good place to start.

A lot of guys are using Pioneers, I have a Kenwood DDX9903S.
I like the HU, but I hate that I have to touch the screen to cancel a warning every time I start the truck.
I should have bought a Pioneer.

If plan to use Carplay, there is really no reason to have an HU with navigation.
Why pay extra for navigation if you can just use your phone?

Of course you'll need a Maestro idatalink to retain your steering wheel controls.

Good luck..
