    I'm leaning towards a carputer...

    I would say what I would want is a carputer but price compared to practicality I'll end up with the DVD nav system. I suppose for me I don't really have the need for anything more than the DVD system. But if I had the money to just throw at it I would definitely go with the carputer!

    I want a carputer, but they are very expensive. I am thinking of a way around it all... We shall see.

    I don't know that it would be that much more expensive to go the carputer route. I think it could be done for probably about $1200. Then I would be able to carry around all my music. I wouldn't have to listen to the same song twice for the next 15 years!
