Is REC bezel Double Din?

I am contemplating installing a Pioneer AVH P4000DVD car stereo that is a double din size into my 2008 Jeep Compass. I believe the stock radio in my jeep compass (just a single disc system) is 1.5 din. However, it appears that the bezel for the REC system w/ navigation is big enough for a double din system. Is this correct? I am able to get the bezel from multiple locations, but I want to make sure this will work before I buy it. Also, the Pioneer stereo does not have navigation, so will I need one of the fancy wiring modules that are like $100-$150? It appears the more expensive module is needed for navigation radios. I would like to have the MyGig system or something from the factory, but I can get this Pioneer system with a full touch screen and DVD for under $300.

Oh, I also just bought my Compass 2 weeks ago and I love it! I look forward to improving MPG!!

It's actually bigger than double din. The Metra bracket listed in the post Gramps links to makes the opening double DIN. I just installed a AVIC-F700BT in my Compass...great fun!
