1 or 1.5 DIN Stock Head Unit Question

So I was doing some thinking today about a CarPC and after coming across a thread on mp3car about a 1/2 DIN folding LCD I had a great idea. The wife's biggest complaint about moving a carputer is that she likes manual radio controls, which to a point is understandable if you're not a big fan of touch screens. In order to have the best of both worlds this unit, with a 1 or 1.5 DIN head unit would be fantastic.

The only thing I'm concerned about is losing stock radio functionality as far as BCM programming, etc. I'd also like to eventually throw in steering wheel controls to my LS. My question is: are there any GM stock head units known to work with the TB's (chimes, steering controls, BCM, etc.) that are just 1 or 1.5 DIN instead of 2 DIN?

Mike

I'd really like to keep as close to stock functionality as possible. If there are other means to address my concerns I am definitely game though.

Also, I posted this same question over on MP3Car in case I don't get any hits here. I'll post the link here if/when the post gets approved over there.

I don't know if editing posts is disabled or I'm just retarded and don't see it, but here's the link to the post on mp3car.

I have an aftermarket hu (was 1 din now double din) and have used the PAC adapter to keep my chime. I havent lost any functionality as far as I know. They also make the adapter to keep your steering wheel controls (which I've installed in a scion TC before, but is also compatible with many cars including the trailblazer)
