help! buying new HU + anyone have experience with lightinthebox.com?

Im looking to buy a new in-dash head unit that comes with ready to go gps, and was wondering if anyone on here has experience with this stuff. id like to spend no more that $400 and get a decent new head unit with 1) ipod hookup, 2) built in ready to go gp, and obviously 3) am/fm radio, cd, etc.

any suggestions?

i had found the two linked below, and am interested, but dont know about their quality/how this sites reputation is (lightinthebox.com). anyone have experience with either these units or this website? thanks

The Jensen one is the best, the other brands never heard of. Highly recomend warrenty on flip out or touch dash. If a gear or pin breaks its done. I bought a JVC arsenal ADV793. Love it so far. Got extra warrenty. Have a scratch on it, there going to fix it for me. I would wait for a sale and get a name brand. They are name brands for a reason. Dont cheap out too much. This could be you

I have a kenwood Dnx 6960 and really like it. I especially like the fact that the gps software is from garmin so the interface is easy and familiar and it's easy to get map updates.
I bought it from crutchfield which has great service and great return policy.

Can't beat those first two prices from lightinthebox though, although for the trouble of installing I would go with a known brand.
