I'm looking for a double din dvd/navigation Head unit. I've been looking at the Eclipse 5510 and 6610 and I love their features. However, I ran across some disturbing news, that they don't have detachable faces? I will be parking my car at Rutgers University in New Brunswick that has had 23 reported incidents of stolen navigation systems since the end of April. I always see shattered glass on the ground now, I hate these pricks. ANYWAY, so I need a unit with a detachable face. Any suggestions? I'm looking to spend no more than 12-1300. Thanks.

the only indash dvd screen i ever saw was my dudes 7'' touch screen from JVC, it folds down flat. you pull it out and it comes with a cover for it....

the only removeable face in dash i ever saw... so far...

Ugh this really blows... any suggestions of covering a double din screen up? It's going in a 2001 Toyota Avalon XLS, so it's not a cheap car that looks easy to break into, not that it matters nowadays anyway.... I dunno anyone ever seen like a custom cover for a double din? If I can't cover it up, it's not worth worrying it'll get stolen. Grrr

You can always ghetto rig it like I did. :) I have tint, so it's easier. I always place GPS antenna inside on top of the unit, get pretty good signal.

And hide the XM antenna near the rail, can you find it?

lol. I have a 2 way paging with prox sensor. But still, the car will be parked in a parking deck, so that won't necessarily stop thieves who have a minute when noone is around.

I dunno, I really don't like flip ups too much, but I want a DVD/Navi unit. Grrrrrrrr I guess I'll go to a few custom shops and see if they have any ideas.

I wish I could have tint here, but fronts are illegal in NJ =(
