Default Message center and radio compatibility

Ive been looking into installing one of those 7 inch touchscreen radio systems. But I don't want to lose the ability to reset the engine oil change message and those things. Do I need to stick with the single din to avoid this issue?
Thanks Y'all

If you look in the owner's manual, I believe there is an alternate way to reset the Tire Life and Oil Life monitors. Key fob programming is done via the radio or with a GM Tech II. Some people relocated the factory radio elsewhere in the car to retain some of these functions.

Thanks, I'll take a look as soon as I get my Monte back.

We put a new touchscreen Pioneer in my 2001 Monte SS. New speakers too. We bought ours from Crutchfield.com. They sold us a kit to add on. All it does is warn if the seatbelt is not on, or if you leave your key in the ignition. I can say the chime is not very ear friendly. I can no longer program anything else. The oil light is from another sensor on mine. Hope this helps.
