Looking to upgrade stock stereo head unit with Double Din & Android auto & Video in for backing

As the title suggest, I'm looking to upgrade my basic head unit in my 2012 F250 to a new double din head unit with NAV, touch screen and video input for backing camera. My truck has the monitor in the mirror and I really don't like it which is the primary reason for the upgrade in the stereo. I'm wondering about pulling video feed from the camera to go to the video in for the head unit as well as connecting the steering wheel controls. I don't really care much about sync since I could use google voice commands. What head units are you guys running? Any suggestion on where to get a splice for the camera feed? Also any advice on what wiring harnesses to buy to be able to use the steering wheel controls?
All help and pictures of your setup are appreciated!

Check out Crutchfield. put in your truck info and start by selecting the features you're looking for on the left side of the window.

I bought mine from them, perfect fit with the kit they recommended, the adapter for the steering wheel controls and the adapter to fit OEM wiring harness. I have no idea on what you'd need to connect the mirror feed into the radio, but most of the aftermarket radios use an RCA plug for input.

Actually did a lot of searching on Crutchfield and settled in on a Kenwood DDX9705. Has wireless android auto and a bunch of features plus with the i data link Maestro RR it will interface with the truck and show tire pressures and a few other things. I wasn't sure if I needed the harness since I bought the I data link so I figured I'd wait to see exactly what comes with it. After some searching I found that the harness for the video feed in behind a panel on the dash and can be accessed and spliced fairly easily. I'll try to updated the thread with pics once installed.
