I practically asked the same question. I previously had a Pioneer installed in my Altima with steering wheel controls and microphone. I had an issue with my Pioneer system Best Buy stood behind their warranty (1 month and a few weeks dealing with no stereo at all) it came back with a scratch on the face so they replaced with equal value which I chose this Alpine. The installer assured me it would work with my previously installed microphone and steering wheel controls. It’s been a few weeks and only issue I have is that Sirius XM isn’t working (which I need to go back in to have them look at it. However, long story short the steering wheel controls and microphone works excellent. I’m definitely no professional so I would definitely ask them prior to purchasing it. As I know I did have to pay extra for the steering wheel controls, microphone and install kit with backup camera. But I’m confident you will be completely satisfied with the sound, clarity and ease of functionality with this Alpine. Good luck.
