    With my job I travel a lot with most of it being in either crowded cities or country bumpkin curvy back roads. I have recently realized that my cell phone GPS is just not cutting it anymore with the small screen. I found a website with quite a few in-dash GPS units and was wondering if you all minded taking a look at them and making some recomendations as to which one is the better unit. The link to the website is below. Thanks in advance! I am not going to necessarily purchase from this website as I am sure their are cheaper prices elsewhere, but they had a very good list of different units.

    They are probably all good, but I recommend the Alpine INA-W910 (INA-W910BT)

    If you are primarily concerned with the GPS function buy Kenwood.
    If you are primarily concerned with the GUI a good looking iPod, phone integration buy Pioneer.
    If you are primarily concerned with sound quality and flexibility buy Alpine.

    All are good, but in the sub $800 range the Kenwood DNX6180 and Pioneer AVIC-Z130BT are at the top of the class. I run the Kenwood and have very few complaints.

    Alpine has new double din unit coming out for the 2012 product year with an 8" screen... if you don't like looking at a small screen for navigation, then this should be a godsend for you....
