I just purchased a 2007 MDX and of course the HFT unit is bad. I need to changeout the stereo to one with nav because I have a teen driver and in my state teen drivers cannot use nav if it’s not built into the car. Does anyone know, if I swap the stero with one with bluetooth capabilities do I still need to replace the HFT to use the steeringwheel controls to control the phone?

Nope. Your new head unit will be completely self contained with regard to the bluetooth capability. Assuming you are having the new radio/nav unit professionally installed they will be running a mic to the rear view mirror area for the hands free calling. Just make sure to pop open the rear of the center console and unplug the HFL if it hasn't already been done so it is completely disabled and cannot cause the dreaded battery drain.
