Looking for a sleek head unit for my 2012 F-150 with Sync 1 & Navigation

Just bought a 2012 king ranch with the Ford Sync 1 system with navigation. It's got the 8" screen where all the climate info is shown on it. I figure that probably complicates an aftermarket head unit because I would need one that can still show all the climate info. When I put that I have that system in Crutchfield I noticed it significantly slimmed down my compatible options. If it was decent at all I'd just put up with it, but the Sync 1 system is just the worst lol. I'd like something that has Carplay (wired or wireless), looks sleek (not gaudy or cheap looking), and that's at least the size of the oem one. If anyone has experience with changing out this system I'd love to see what you did! Also just looking for recommendations from the experts here. Thanks!

Here's a pic of what I have in my truck just so it's clear.

I did a quick search and one avenue is https://www.idatalinkmaestro.com/en/compatible-products/radios
Apparently the idatalink maestro plus a compatible radio allows you to get a new head unit and keep the AC controls.
