I'm trying to find an after market radio that when installed it's flush with the rest of the center console. i've seen it in some pictures, but i didn't know what radio they had.

touchscreen obviously

I did the X690BS

I replaced the top dash pop-up console with a Double-DIN unit and mounted it there and put a JDM drink cooler in the old space.

Perfect fit for the radio. Then did Polk speakers up front in the doors (2-way) and Kenwood 3-way in the rear doors and sound deadening in all doors, night and day difference, Mounted the mic above the mirror in the front leading edge of the overhead console, Bluetooth calls are clear and work well.
Picks up my crappy iphone 6s Plus bluetooth just swell. Color changed it to red to match the interior LED's. Easiest install on the radio with Crutchfiled soldering the adapter, and the stock mount plates. I solder just fine just being lazy on this install.
I will add, new window gussetts cut down the wind noise substantially to help me enjoy the new sound.
