Alright so I'm desperately looking into replacing my factory HU after it's starting to die (changer wont load or eject cd's and radio stations that once were clear now come in hardly at all). So here's my checklist:

1. Double Din Touchscreen
2. Good quality
3. Good SQ
4. 3 sets of pre-outs

I have a Nuvi260W so I don't really need it to have GPS on it, but I would like to be able to play movies off my Ipod on it for road trips for the g/f.

Here is a sample unit that I've been looking at due to it's price. Let me know what you guys think and if it's crap just lemme know.

Dude, that one is crap. My local best bey just happened to be clearing out avic-900fb's. Tagged at $1100 down to $450, Brand new in package, soon to be discontinued, but I didnt mind.

Bluetooth, dvd, touchscreen, with upgraded 2.0 navigation, like a million preouts on the damm thing, usb's, yadda yadda.....Maybe you can still snag one. I could here....

That one only has two sets of preouts, but I have heard very good things about them, so much so that I have one on the way. :veryhapp:

I think I've decided to go with a Pioneer AVH-P4100DVD it has good S/N ratio of 97dB with 4v Pre-amp outputs, which is the closest I've seen to Eclipse's 5v-7v pre-amp outputs without spending a lot of money.

Hi. I agree with Louisiana CRX, I personally would recommend a high end Kenwood unit for that price range... You will get more product for your buck, better customer support, better functionality, & better quality. Let me know if I can be of any additional help or you need to purchase, shoot me an email.

x4, or you could go with the ddx 812 which is the 8120 just without navi. honestly i think you should sell your nuvi unit and just go with the 8120 or the new 9140. i was scared at first to go with kenwood, but ive owned eclipse, pioneer, and now a kenwood DD navi unit and the kenwood is by far the best. my pioneer had ALOT of problems.

At least we all share the same opinion on quality products!

I have been looking for a good active able all in one deck ( with nav) for around a 1000 bucks for awhile and had finally decided on the kenwood DDX814 now i just got to figure out how to get one in canada and with some real warranty, seeing as they are not availible here yet just the much more expensive DNX9140
