    I'm new to this site, so please don't hate on this question! I would like to know what you consider to be the best radio, preferably a screen. Thanks!

    Seriously, there's only one that's the best? It's all about your needs. Sat, BT, GPS, device integration, etc.

    Have you any models in mind?

    I like my JBL/Entune setup. One of the best factory systems I've heard.

    It depends on your needs. There are good brand names, but some of their specific models might not be so good, and then there are no-name brands that bring out a model that works great.
    Some guys like to have just a basic radio, others prefer a full package with navigation and satelite.
    Narrow down your needs and then some guys here will give input on what they have that meets those needs.
    I personally still have my stock radio (with casette deck and CD), and it is the best one for me because it did not cost me anything, and I hardly ever turn it on anyways.

    I guess I should have added that info to this, anyways I want it to have satellite radio and aux port. Those are the must haves, other options are flexible. I would like for it to be as big as the stock radio so there wont be much space left over.

    I don't really want to spend over $300, but just list some options and I will look at it.



    Also, if you have a screen in your tacoma, send pictures of the radio and the model if you want..

    Don't know how many quality double DIN touchscreen head units are out there for under $300. I spent over $300 for a regular single DIN head unit.

    Price aside a lot of good stuff out there. I've ran Alpine and Pioneer in the past no issues and currently have a Kenwood. Most these days have some sort of aux input and/or direct iPod control. Most support sattelite radio as well but you often have to add on the tuner separate.
