Hey ladies and gents,

I'm in the market for a double din head unit. I've looked and looked but can't find one that fits my requirements. A Sony one came close but is unfortunately discontinued.

If any one could help me out with a solution (or mix of solutions) that would be great.

Here's my feature wants and needs:
Needs:
- tomtom Sat nav. Happy to pay extra for separate GPS thingy. I want tomtom as IMO it's the easiest user interface and tomtom live hd is excellent.
- hands free bluetooth calling, preferably with an optional extra microphone for better call clarity
- double din, preferably minimalist buttons as I'm looking for something classy
- reversing camera input
- touch screen display

Wants:
- android (galaxy s4) mirroring so I can use the apps on my phone (such as email, whatsapp, etc)
- decent brand (Sony, Pioneer, kenwood, etc)
- DAB radio, but I probably listen to mp3 more
- memory card slot for mp3, preferably not a USB type memory, but microSD or something similar that's discrete.
- ability to install own apps/software
- auto music muting on call
- Steering wheel control stick

Budget: anywhere up to 1k including fitting.

Notes:
- I'm UK based, so head unit needs to be UK region for radio tuning (and dvd if unit does that too - which is optional)
- any good places to get one fitted professionally? I'm based in hereford, West Midlands.

Thank you to all!

Kind regards,

Tom.

If you are stuck on TomTom I think that limits you to Sony products like the XAV-602BT, TomTom is a $250 add-on. Reviews on that HU are not that great, but there are a lot of messy Nav Head Units on the market right now.
