    I've got the 700bt. It is fair at best I would say. I don't have an IPOD hooked up yet but the bluetooth works on it 95% of the time. There are little problems here and there with the unit but overall it is a good buy for around $600 if you can find it for that, just don't expect perfection. I've heard the kenwood units are pretty good but they are significantly more expensive. I frequent avic411.com.. they will have all you need.

    elmdor, how well does the GPS work for you? Does it warn you to stay in a certain lane ahead when it is warranted? Did Pioneer ever fix the issue where the Nav voice says "comma" instead of "point" in the miles?

    I was researching both the 900BT and the Kenwood DNX5120 about a week ago. I ended up getting the DNX5120. A lot of people are having problems with the 700/900BT head unit. It takes about 90 seconds after start up before its responsive. I also read that it can take up to 5 minutes after start up before it picks up your bluetooth phone. I'm really loving the DNX5120! GPS is ran by Garmin, it kicks ass! I got it for $600 OTD. Highly recommend it.

    Just picked up and installed this unit this weekend, so far its seems to be a pretty solid for the price.

    The reason I chose this one was mainly cause I don't have $1000 to cough up on a stereo, and also the Interface on this unit seemed much better then the generic looking ones that other manufacturers have. Plus you have the usual hookups as the other ones ( USB,RCA, IPOD, back up camera ) and SD card which I thought was cool.

    Only thing that sucks is that it take about a minute to boot up, and it does not play DVD's, but for the price I didnt really care about playing DVD's. I already hooked up my portable DVD player through the RCA jacks so basically does everything I need.
