You'll still have bluetooth through the aftermarket deck itself, but it won't be linked through the car's original bluetooth module (basically, it means that the bluetooth quality is entirely dependent on the new deck's quality, and you are forced to place the deck's bluetooth mic somewhere).
Just disconnecting the OEM BT module does it automatically for every Alpine and Pioneer unit I've tried in my car. No coding or anything.
