Anyone know a website to research between a Pioneer and Kenwood stereo?

Local shops sell what is in stock.

Called Pioneer and Kenwood … sell the latest 2019 model.

I was looking at 2018 radio

Crutchfield.com is the only way to go. The factory stereo was weak in my f250 and I missed bluetooth calling I had in the last truck. For under $350 I replaced the head unit with a Sony CD/Bluetooth unit and 4 new Polk Speakers. The great part was the plug and play harnesses provided by Crutchfield. I didn't have to cut a single wire to install it. Great reviews on the products, good prices, lots of choices great support.

I stumbled on a Pioneer forum called AVIC411.com lots of information

I was just after a simple solution. I wanted BT and a little better sound. Just went in my plow truck, still very pleased with the result. Glad you found what you were after!
I found a company in Texas … guaranteed to beat any price. Bought Pioneer
AVIC-W8500NEC stereo for $679 deklivered. You found your simple solution? BT self powered boom box linked to my phone works best for me at the trail head

Where to I find "switched" 12v power on the truck for the rear camera.? trailer wire harness? Or unused 5th wheel harness between cab and bed?

Front camera gonna go off the fuse box.

Camera draws a fraction of an amp.
