Hi, I'm new here, so I am hoping I'm doing the right thing.

I just got a 2011 Honda Insight a few days ago. :D I was wondering if anyone could share their experiences/pictures installing a double-din aftermarket bluetooth screen stereo on a 2011 (around that year range) Insight Base model. I have never done a stereo install myself, but I would love to learn. I have reason to believe that I have everything I require (harnesses, antenna, etc). I have seen a couple of related posts on this matter, but they didn't go into much detail.

It also came with a backup camera, which I know is another task entirely, so if anyone has had any experience with that, I'd love to know.

If you've done it before, do you have tips? Perhaps some links to past discussions? I am getting a few conflicting pointers (one example being whether to disconnect the battery or not before working).

I have found crutchfield.com to be a great resource. If you buy stuff from them, even if just adapter harnesses or speakers, they will likely be willing to give you their installation guides. These guides give very detailed instructions, even to the detail of where clips are located so you know where to pry, etc. They also sell adapter harnesses so that you don't have to do any soldering to adapt an aftermarket stereo to a factory harness, and adapter harnesses for speakers.

They will also be able to confirm whether there is enough room 'behind/forward of' the dash for an aftermarket stereo to fit in a particular vehicle.
