I had the original radio restored for my 46 and changed to 12 volt, after that expense it's still an old radio. So if I had it to do over would have picked up a modern unit and put it out of site (glove box or under the seat, needs modern power etc etc.
That's exactly what I've been thinking, but would like to have an Apple CarPlay enabled tablet that could connect to it and/or allow me to play music from my iPhone.
I do currently use my iPhone for navigation, but would like something larger that is easier to see. I find the navigation indispensable for me.
I've seen some radios that have an extension for the table to connect, and if something like that could be hid in the glove box, that would be perfect for me.
