    Does anyone have the Eclipse AVN5510 / AVN52D Navigation/DVD head unit? I have been researching the different systems, and am leaning toward this one. Does anyone have any pictures they can share? Any pros / cons from current users? Thanks!

    Sorry about the small picture, but it was the only one I had.

    I'm going with the Kenwood primarily because it has the Garmin software & i'm really used to the Nuvi series... Just get what you'll be comfortable with... If you've had great luck w/ eclipse then roll with it!!

    I have the 5510 in my 07. Nice unit, especially the Ipod adaptor. I also have the rear camera. The GPS antenna works well underneath the dash.
    The bad: The steering wheel controls plug right in, but you need a new wiring harness for the rest of the plugs. The GPS software is decent but not up to the standard of a Garmin or TomTom. Plus it costs U$300+ for a new map DVD.
