Alpine CDE-HD149BT - 1DIN CD/MP3/USB Receiver with Bluetooth,HD Radio, and Pandora® playback. use Hawg Wired install kit with adapter, and all bar controls work. So far this has been a great head unit for me.

Will other less expensive radios work with the hawgwire and adapter so the hand controls will work as well?

Kenwood X998 is a great deck with hand control capability.

The Hawgwired works with many units, if the brand isn't listed, just call them and ask. I have the Alpine waiting to be installed, right now I have a $120 Sony unit that works really good, when I change all I have to do is change a couple of switches.

I contacted hawgwired about this a few months back. They told me that as long as the head unit has steering wheel capabilities then any radio should work
