    Double Din HU Recommnedations!

    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....

    Re: Double Din HU Recommnedations!

    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.
