If you remove the factory head unit, you'll lose the iMid screen...

It depends on the install, but yes you will loose the OEM upper screen and all of it's functions. There are ways to keep the OEM screen working but it's time consuming and more advanced than a standard install.

IF you want to keep the stock HU for it's features and screen function, AND you want to add a single din head unit for modern convenience, you can have both.

You can mod the pocket and put the new HU there. Then use a LOC to feed the stock HU output into the new HU AUX input. Lastly, copy power/ground and move speaker outputs to the aftermarket radio.

My build log includes the details (link in sig) but you can also look here:

I feel your pain. I've wanted to upgrade to CarPlay in my 2014 for a long time. There are two ways to do it.

One, buy a kit from Metra that has a module that (poorly) emulates the factory head unit functions. I have not heard ANY positive feedback about that kit. Have heard TONS of negative feedback. I wouldn't do it personally.

The other is to relocate the factory head unit by burying it in the dash or relocating it to the trunk. Putting it in the trunk is the way to go IMHO. It's not for the faint of heart. I might do, but would hire it out to a pro. I was quoted $600 for the labor (and I guess a few minor parts) to have my factory head unit relocated. That did not include the charges for installing the new head unit. And I have to provide a donor radio, which can be had for about $75 on eBay.

See this thread about relocating to the trunk.
