If this remote is OEM from 01, then the answer is likely none will be compatible. So plan on a new wired remote and cable.

I like the Clarion M508 and their LCD remote or a few of the Fusion units and their remote.

You can get the adapter for old style remotes to newer Clarion head units. I think it's about $20 for the adapter, but you lose some functionality as I recall.

I have a Clarion M475 from my X-Star that I am no longer using. It works with the old remote and has aux input. Let me know if you are interested.

Yes, they are not fully functional and if they are LCD display, you lose that also.
