Hey guys, I have an 06 passat and the CD player crapped out on me. I plan to fix the problem, but at the same time I plan to replace it with a navigation system. I'm looking for these things:

* nav system (preferably touch screen)
* multimedia, can do CDs, usb, etc
* relatively cheap, preferably under 300 if possible
* reliable

I looked through other threads but couldn't find a recommendation i liked...

Under $300. You're severely limiting your choices...

You'd have to find a used unit if you only have 300. A lot of good GPS units are close to that without being a head unit even o.O

Under $300? That's impossible for a GPS with multimedia, if only simple GPS wih touch screen, that's can do! Only $200 is enough for Eonon, otherwise should be at least $400. Especially for good GPS like Garmin and Tomtom. Think it over :)

I found the AVIC-F700BT for 430, I'd be willing to spend that much if it's worth it. Is that a good one? My manager has it but it seems to have issues with playing USB and SD cards, i'm assuming possible compatibility issues?

Also how can I find out if there's anything i need besides the wiring harness and dash kit for my car, i don't think it has any stock amplifiers etc.

Ask Best Buy. They have all the information for every car made lol.
