I've installed several head units in the past but I have yet to attempt to install an in-dash navigation system. How much more difficult is it? Also, is there any brands that are particularly easier to deal with? I'm currently looking at the Eclipse AVN726E, Pioneer AVIC-Z110BT, AVIC-X920BT, and the Clarion NX700 but am open to other suggestions if any are easier to deal with.
I don't really care for bypassing it but if that is easy enough to do I may knock it out while installing, but I do want the backup camera to work on the headunit.
Is this something a novice like myself can handle, or should I take it to a professional and get it done? Any idea what the going rate is for such an install if I were to do that option? I've only checked one place and they wanted nearly $600 for an install if I didn't buy the headunit from them, thus the reason I am turning to you guys for info! I live in a semi-rural area so there aren't a ton of options.
I want one with decent NAV functions that will work well with an iPhone with BT capabilities.
Any info/insight is greatly appreciated.
