Contracted eclipse about putting the NEWEST available maps software on my head unit.. Only to find out that, not only are they out of the aftermarket car audio market.. Service and support is also being discontinued. My $2300 eclipse unit is now basically useless as far as nav goes. :bowdown: whats the hotness in new double din nav units?

Wait, you're just now finding out that they are out of the game? They haven't been producing aftermarket car audio products for 3 years now?

I thought of that, and an "app radio" but.. I drive in rural areas frequently, and lose cell coverage.

Ive had a lot of pioneers, in the avic line and ive liked em. The alpine wenn linked looks fairly nice, which kenwood is generally recommended

Depends what you are looking for. Avic line is super functional, not super great on SQ...
