    Kenwood DNX6980 or Pioneer AVIC Z130BT?

    Which of these headunits would you choose and why? I am literally stuck between the two of them and cannot choose.
    DNX6980
    AVIC-Z130BT
    Price is not a factor as I can get them both for very near the same $.
    Thanks in advance for any advice.

    Generally, if you treasure your ipod control more go Pioneer. If you need GPS and hands free/voice control most go with Kenwood. I think you're comparing apples and oranges though, the Z130 would be best compared to the 9980HD, no? For the same money, I'd take the Z130 and muddle through with the hands free and gps of the unit.

    I feel like the z130 and the 9980 are meant to compete, however, the 9980 is about $400 more than the z130. That is why I am comparing it to the 6980.
    I don't think I will ever use voice control. Mostly ipod, fm, bluetooth, and occasionally the nav.

    The price diff is definitely present... to that end I say go for the z130 due to its better feature set not the least of which is screen size.
