    Which Double din HU?

    Need advice on a Double Din HU. Looking really hard at the Kenwood DDX8019, but I also have eyes on the AVIC-D3 and Z2. NAV is a must and I realize I need to get the KNA-G510 for the Kenwood unit. Which HU do you guys think would be best for SQ and playing Mp3s from DVD? Any thoughts on the Pioneer Navigation in comparison to the Kenwood/Garmin Navigation?

    Thanks,

    TxIceMan

    have you looked at the eclipse lines?

    the avn5510 might be right up your alley. i am going to get the avn 6610 because it has 2 dvd slots.

    i have a 2454 in my scion tc and i like it. the new units are 5V preamp outputs, which is a plus for sound and speakers. other brands are only 2.5 / 2 preamp.

    Re: Which Double din HU?

    i have a 1 month old 6019 with navi in my truck and an Avic D3 in my lexus. i like the simple interface of the kenwood navi hands down. i am also running BT on both units and like them equally. the SQ in my truck is quite nice, but i am running an AC3.1 in it so as far as basic deck quality its a toss up if you ask me. i picked up the D3 for under 700 the kenwood was 900. i can say that i love the somewhat larger screen of the 6019 though. it really does make a difference when you see two different units on a constant basis.

    Re: Which Double din HU?

    I was planning on no more than 800. These are what i have looked at.

    Flush Mounted screens. I'd go with an eclipse. Hands down.
    Eclipse
    AVN6600
    AVN6610

    For a flip-out I would prefer Kenwood. They Look very ****, And can find some for good prices.
    Kenwood

    KVT-719DVD
    KVT-915DVD

    Few More in that range.
