    Who wouldnt prefer a double DIN nav or dvd? I think far too many of the single DIN options out there look tacky. That being said...cant justify the price of dvd-nav at the moment. :(

    I sit on the fence myself. Sometimes I like the look of the double din , and then sometimes it looks way to BIG!! This is my wife`s truck and DVD and nav. is not a choice. She dislikes DVD`s and she doesn`t need the nav. system. So for me a double din would just be for cd`s and ipod mainly. Then sometimes I just like the looks of the single din, but that little shelf is worthless , I`m guessing anyways. I guess for me it will go down to what head unit I pick.

    single din. it's the only size with serious sound performance in mind. nobody makes a double din that has time alignment and 3 way active crossovers built in. plus i watch enough tv at home.

    I listen to enuf music at home....but seeing the Nav directions on the screen (if that's the type you choose to use) is handy.

    I've been debating a stero upgrade my self.
    Stock is ok, just ok. And double din touchscreen is the way i might go. dvd or nav? i haven't made up my mind.

    I'm probably keeping the stock HU. At least for now. But in my previous vehicle I ran a double din and loved it. Was a Pioneer Avic D3. Kinda wish I hadn't sold it.

    I just got a jvc arsenal single din and i love it... Probably not the most high performance unit on the planet but it has a usb port. It was pretty cheap too.

    I like single, every unit I have looked at before getting my Sony was much better as a single. The doubles all seem like units that my mother would want to use, not me.

    I like the look of the double din but it needs to be flush. I've seen many with the corners sticking out. The single looks a bit odd unless one were to use the empty space for something else like a CB.

    I was thinking about dropping some dollas on a double D so I could stick it in there.

    However, I think Im just gonna save up for the itablet instead and just run a line out to my amps (when I get them)
