I am going to replace my stock radio and want to get all the new tech.
Which generation of CR-V? The 5th gen CR-V can't accommodate aftermarket head units, but everything through the 4th gen can. Metra (and Scosche?) make dash kits and wiring harnesses that will match the factory wiring, so everything should plug in and work properly.

I doubt you will get a volume knob--if you want the navigation or anything like Android Audio or carplay, the screen will take up most of the front face of the unit. That doesn't bother me since I use the steering wheel controls most of the time. I installed a Pioneer 4200NEX in my '09 myself, and everything I connected is working OK. (I added a USB3 extension receptacle to my center console, to give me remote access to the two rear USB ports, one of which is used for Android Auto, and the other for a 256GB USB stick.)

Some of the newer units might support backup cameras, but most can't use the camera already installed in the vehicle (they use their own camera, often sold as an accessory that bolts to the license plate frame).
