    Go to Crutchfield to find out what you want, then go here to buy it for cheaper

    I haven't done car audio in awhile, but when I did Ikesounds prices were unbeatable

    The best navigation is Kenwood with Garmin. They have a poor user interface on the rest fo the radio though. Pioneer has a great user interface and comparably weak GPS. Alpine has a historically unreliable unit with poor GPS. Do you want a better user interface for the radio and ipod or better GPS? Kenwood is also a little over priced and you must look around for a deal. If you drive offroad and want topographical maps for offroad use Kenwood/Garmin can do that. The others cant.

    AVIC X910BT. I have it, and it works great. Its Pioneer, and I have to disagree with the above poster. The GPS Nav is good. Has 3D! Its awesome.

    it seems the only one that is feasible in the price range i am looking at is the Pioneer --cant remember the model # but it's only like $349 or something --and man all the stereo on that site are expensive!
    Is that how much i have to fork out just to get GPS --that is pretty much all i want alongside having a bigger screen --:confused:

    Its Kenwood 5140...

    By the way FTMFW = " for the M**** F****** win" :D

    the model number is Kenwood DNX5140 (DNX-5140)

    and yah its an older version. I beleive the new version is 5160. Like the others said, check out sonicelectronix.com for pricing and info because kenwood's website will only have the newer models.:)
