Hey there everybody, I've been lurking around for the past week or so and finally decided to sign up.

I picked up a baseline LX Sedan last week and I have to say, mighty impressed with it. I'm looking at picking up a Stereo package from FS in the near-ish future and I just have a few questions.

Here's the package:
Pioneer 5.8" In-Dash Double-Din Car Video Deck with GPS Package (AVIC-P32BTC) : In-Dash & Overhead Car Video - Future Shop

From what I've read there shouldn't be any problems getting the factory steering wheel controls to work for the audio part, but is there anyway to keep the bluetooth controls and built-in mic functioning with an aftermarket deck?

Alternately I was thinking that while we don't have a Kia nav option, it appears as though the Cerrato may be available with navigation. Perhaps one of the other market units lets you keep your stock BT. Any thoughts?

I really like my BT controls and I really don't like having non-functional buttons. If all else fails I was thinking of just changing out the speakers, does the stock unit have any options in terms of adding an amp and sub?

I was wondering if there were anymore of us Newfs kickin around.

I'm probably gonna head to CarTunes today after work to see what they're sayin. In thinking about it, the only reason the stock mic wouldn't work would probably be the connection to the head unit. In theory shouldn't I be able to splice the connector from the Pioneer mic onto the Kia mic cable?

Also, whats the deal with the stock AUX/USB, will they connect into the back of an aftermarket headunit or am I SOL on that one too?
