i'm trying to find something similar to the avic n2......with dvd, navigation, and mp3 but with a decent price tag. a touch screen would be a big plus. any headunits out like this? pioneer, clarion, eclipse, alpine...or any others worth buying? i would like for it to have maybe 3 preouts with decent voltage.

pioneer is the only brand with an all in one unit.
both kenwood and alpine have add on modules for nav..
for around a grand. I dunno what year they came out in so I dunno what the technology is like.
I really like the N2 because it has the 3d nav...

if you want to give up navigation/touchscreen, you can get the JVC KD-AVX1, it is an indash with dvd and giga-mp3 capability. three sets of 5V pre-outs. can be had for under $500.
most in dash screens have 2V outputs, even the N2.
how much are you willing to spend?? i know best try is bustin' people in the head for 2 grand on the AVIC-N2, our store sells it brand new with warranty for $1399 everyday. maybe try to find a good used AVIC-N1????
i think feature and price wise pioneers in dash cant be beat. alpine is a lot of money, and kenwood in dash's are the ugliest things ive ever seen, the last good one was the KVT911DVD.

well thats really the main thing i want... navigation/touchscreen
maybe just a separate navigation unit?

well IMO you arent going to find anything thats decent for cheap. touchscreen and nav are EXPENSIVE no matter what brand you buy, yes you could just buy a touchscreen and add nav. later but you will end up spending more that way(unless you find a deal on used equipment) so basicly you arent going to get those features on any new unit for less.
I dont know what you call a "decent" price, but i think $1400 for DVD,NAV,Touchscreen indash is CHEAP, you wont find a new alpine or kenwood for that with those features.
if you can give up the Nav. then you will be able to find one for less, i never understood what the big deal about nav. was anyway I CAN READ A MAP.
