Hi all,

I'm looking for a double din navigation hu with Bluetooth and Ipod control. The only one I've really found is a Pioneer F700BT but its like $600. Can you recommend any others? Where do you all get yours so cheap from?? I'm new to this.

thanks

Go to caraudio.com, there will be 10 places to choose from, go to onlinecarstereo.com, the first one and see what they've got. I'm pretty sure they've got a couple pioneers for cheaper than $600.

yeah, but you could do the kenwood 812 plus the navi add on. That would put on right at 845.

If I remove Navi from the equation then what HU gives me Bluetooth,XM and IPOD all Touchscreen??. Please indicate total price as I know a lot of players need add on boxes for BT etc.

It is but it's feature packed. If you don't want to spend that much and don't need all thos features, you could drop down to the DNX5120 which is more comparable to the F700BT. The DNX5120 has DVD (which the F700BT doesn't) but it lacks built-in BT (which the F700BT has). You can add it with the KCA-BT200 though.

You could go with the DDX512 (which drops nav but is later addable with the KNA-G510), but you'd still need the BT200 for bluetooth. BTW, XM is pretty much always an add-on tuner so you'd have to add that to whatever you get.

They're not very comparable if you're building a system. The 512/5120 have 2@2V, the 700 has 3@5V. Try to find an authorized retailer, so you'll get a warranty. I'll have a F90BT up for sale pretty soon, for far less than retail.

The F700BT does not have 5V pre-outs. Not even the Premier F90BT has 5V outs, it has 4V outs. The F700BT and F900BT are 2.2V, not a whole lot of difference from 2V.

Yes the F700BT has 3 sets, the DDX512/DNX5120 has "only" 2 sets, but what do you really need 3 sets for anyway? On the 512/5120 you can change the rear set to subwoofer and you're all set. Who runs rear speakers anyway? On the DDX812/DNX8120 there's at least a reason to run rear speakers as it has built-in DD/DTS decoding, but no other unit has that so I see no point in rear speaker outputs.

To me, the main difference is DVD v. bluetooth; and bluetooth you can add to the 512/5120, you can never change the F700BT to DVD.
