    I'm looking for one as well and have been told by several high end stereo shops that the new Kenwood excelon series is by far the best. Unit I want runs about $1000.

    I have a Kenwood DDX512 and I couldn't ask for anything more. I have had many before this one has all the same options as all the others.

    Link to the unit is here.

    Why is it that the ones with SAT NAV cost soo much more? How are us old cheap bastards supposed to keep up with the times?

    I second that the new JVC decks are way nice. I was always a Pioneer guy but they were way out of my price range for me to get the Bluetooth so I got this JVC KW-AVX840 7" Double-Din and I love it. And the screen is fully detachable

    I got it for $343.00 brand new last year before Christmas.

    Anything Kenwood. Imo they are the best. They have faster response time between menus, there easy to use and you don't have to wire them to the brake to use navigation while driving. I have thr Kenwood ddx 719 and would highly recommend it. It's fairly priced at $499 for a full 7" screen. It doesnt have built in nav but using the Kenwood/garmin app you can stream nav from your phone if necessary. I also prefer the rear usb for a cleaner look.
