    I have a 2010 Tacoma and was wanting to get a navigation, Bluetooth, DVD system to install! What does everyone recommend? Which is the easiest to install? Any good links?

    I have a friend who bought a Pioneer Avic-z120bt and decided to pull it out and unload the car. He is offering it to me for $800, its been installed but is only a week or two old. What do the TW experts think? I'm running an older (2007) Alpine single din receiver and my wife bitches she can't work her ipod very well with it.

    This is outside my lane of expertise since I don't keep up on the A/V stuff.

    I have the Pioneer Avic F70 bt , I like the user interface except that its not always that responsive, u gotta know how to touch the screen the right way..Its also a bit laggy sometimes when switching functions, and recently the bluetooth stopped working (software issue)

    It basically runs windows CE in the background, I wanna fix the bluetooth software problem but if U dont do it the right way u risk bricking the whole unit :-(

    Overall I spent about close to $600 (2 years ago) for head unit, harness, and Double Din dash kit, When I upgrade I think I will get another Pioneer Avic but probably the higher end Premier audio line

    Price seemed a bit high to me as well. He claims he paid $900 on amazon with a coupon. I thought $600 range would be more equitable, but hate to lowball people.

    You can get all those features for 500 ish but if you look closely there are little things that are missing... some of them dont have aux inputs or their wattage is fairly low or you have to add the nav in with an attachment. so watch out i honestly think the Pioneer AVIC 920BT and the AVIC z120BT are the top notch on the pioneer side. I went with the AVIC Z120BT. has all the bells and whistles and a frinken auz input which the 920 does not have!

    I also have a Pioneer AVIC, not sure of the exact model. Its very nice, although takes a few seconds to load up past the splash screen. Nothing I cant handle though, as your music will come on before the screen is ready.

    I have the Sony XNV-770BT. Features are good, Tom Tom navigation is good, but the interface is awful, so I would not recommend it.

    Kenwood DNX series ftw. I have the DNX6960 never had any other systems to compare it to but I love it. Garmin nav, bluetooth, external AV imput, scan disc drive, backup camera, charges your ipod and lets you completly work it from the touch screen, and you can download start up screens, backgrounds, and nav icons.

    and the resolution is better than any other headunit Ive ever seen.

    I love my headunit, and have a subwoofer under the passenger seat hooked up also.

    I will second the kenwood. I picked up a Alpine and I'm tossing it and getting a kenwood because of maps, fit and features.
