    Are there any thoughts or leads on a good deal for a stereo/nav system? A year or so when I was looking it seemed like the hot set up was a Pioneer and there were some good deals on Ebay. I also remember some random issues like having to load new maps periodically or something like that. Anybody want to steer a guy in the right direction?

    kenwoods and pioneer have junk nav on their units. The bluetooth's rarely work as well.

    If you want a quality product buy an alpine iva-w505. I've had mine for about a year and a half and it is the best i've ever seen. I am an audio installer so i see a lot come through and deal with people who have a lot of problem with theirs. It is also super easy to navigate which is a HUGE plus when driving

    i would find out what the cost is of updating the nav unit. seems that kenwood has garmin nav, might be cheaper to update.
