Alright well to start off this is just an option for people who don't wish to spend $400 bucks on the Kanatechs kit. I purchased both single din & double din thinking I would have to mix the two kits together. But you don't, so onto the double din install.

This is the ebay kit labeled as a 03-05 Mazda6 double din kit. The seller said it would not fit 06-08 and would not work with electronic climate controls.

I will be posting pictures of both single din made for the 06-08 6, and the double din comparing them. Then stock components swapped over to the double din.



Had to remove the pictures. If you are interested please pm me

I didn't know if I could post the link but it's the only one on ebay. I found it about a month and a half ago, and couldn't find anything on it so I bought it and took the chance.
I wanted to post this up to let everyone know that you can use it. It's essentially a metra knock off. Looks identically wiring and board wise. It should fit on your 03 since it's made for 03-05 but fits 06-08.

Don't forget to hit that THANKS button :)

Anyone actually have a navi installed? I was thinking maybe next year, as mine is getting a bit old and I want my dashboard/window back.

double din? Or hidden top box navi? I like both, but double din scares me for brake ins.

It basically allows you to run a more advanced head unit with more features such as navigation, back up cam, play movies etc. Most double din head units are more advanced than simple single din cd/mp3 players. Ie. Bluetooth, back up cam, multi disc changer, etc.. But it all really depends on the specs of the actual unit you are running.

no other place than ebay. It's a knock off metra kit. I'm assuming since it's all the same wiring and boards look almost the same, it's a kit metra designed but decided to not produce. So i jumped on it to try and has been working great since.

I have a DD installed for almost 2 years now,I went with the kanatechs kit.
For those interested,I say go for it.But take your time picking the HU.
I have built in navigation,with tomtom installed,mp3 player,DVD,Bluetooth (just hit a button and you answer and make calls through the radio) iPod connection.
Also have a slot for a memory card where I can load music,pics....The unit has a great feature where it stores up to 6 CDs in the internal memory.
Long story short,ever since I installed,I don't have any more CDs in the car.Love it
