Hi folks, first time posting. Anyway I have been looking for a new CD head unit to replace the standard one that came with the EX. I have cut down my choices to these three:
Panasonic CQ-DF601U, Kenwood's KDC-V7017, and JVC's digifine2.1 KD-SH55.

I would settle for either one but the person I spoke to said that I would have to give up the controls on the steering wheel if I were to put the system in (something that I wouldn't want to do).

Do you guys know if the guy was right or he's just another salesman that doesn't know a cat to a Pop-Tart?

If he's right, are there anyother head unit that is compatable to the steering controls?

BTW all three systems have remote controls.

Thanks for any information.

Yes, you will loose the use of the steering wheel remote if you replace the headunit. There are no aftermarket headunits that are 100% compatible with the steering wheel remote without modification or add-on.
You need to install PAC infrared remote interface if you want to be able to control aftermarket headunits that are IR remote capable, it's about $65-$75.
