    The top players in the sub $1k market seem to be Pioneer and Kenwood. Pioneer has a better GUI, but Kenwood has Garmin nav. In the end, the Garmin has just been too big of a detail to overlook. My last two head units have been Kenwood, first the DNX6140 and now the DNX6160.

    I should be installing it this week, so no, I have not used it. on the 6140 it was a little clunky, but it did work. I navigate my ipod only using playlists too, but I found that I left it on random most of the time in my car.

    My understanding is that the ipod navigation on the Pioneer is a step better than the Kenwood.

    IMO, the pioneer blows the Kenwood out of the water, as far as iPod integration. Beyond that, personal preference. I dont need nav often enough to make that a priority, so for me, it was about ease of use, support, and GUI. Pioneer won.

    For the record, I rarely use playlists, and often listen to an entire album, so I sort by artist, and/or album, so it may be different for you.

    If I needed the nav all the time, Kenwood would win. Disappointed with Alpine lately...

    I would find a local shop and take your phone in, most will have em set up for you to play with.

    Playing with Pioneer's AppRadio...highly integrated with iPhone. A bit quirky in some regards and still getting used to the user interface. $399, no integrated navigation package, but comes with a GPS antenna. Relies on the iPhone for mapping software, which actually turns out to be cheaper than a fully nav-ready unit.
