I was looking for those features too. I decided to go with a Kenwood model basically because the Bluetooth and Navi System they are opperated by. The Navi system is by Garmin and the Bluetooth is by Parrot. Apparently they are the best by far. You can still get another brand but the Navi System and BT system I heard **** in most other units. I am looking at the Kenwood DNX6140. It has built-in Navi and BT. You can buy the ipod/iphone adapter for like 15-20 dollars on eBay. Only downside to the 6140 they retail from websites for around $800+. But my understanding is they are well worth the money, I cannot find one bad review.

That is a link to the 4 units that support navi system at the moment.

I think that Kenwood will have a lagg if you don't disable ipod album art?

Ya that to me is the best unit around at the moment for all in one deal. I found some on eBay for around 723.99 with free shipping. I am debating on buying or waiting a month or so. Let me know which unit you end up with since we got the same taste it seems haha. You can PM or w/e.

well i just pulled the trigger....another purchase for my car that i can not afford!

got the Kenwood 6140 and the iPod adaptor for less than 800 shipped from amazon....i hope that it works out, because that price is almost too good to be true

I am sure you won't be disappointed. And plus you do not have to pay $200 like me to get the dang thing installed. I got a 2000 chevy silverado that only requires a 1.5 din. So they have to custom fit the bezel to fit, basically a big mess that I wish i knew how to do. So let me know how you like it though.

im speaking of the bluetooth that is ran through the side trim near the windshield so the speaker can sit on the visor...

how can this trim be removed? just popped off on most cars? mine is an 03 mustang if anyone knows
