    Re: Finally brought the head units down to three options PLEASE HELP PICK

    heres the list.
    -audio/video outputs
    -good navigation
    -at least 4v preamp outputs
    -3 preamp outputs
    -aux input (rca preferred)
    -backup cam
    -bluetooth
    -ipod interface (not top priority but still there)
    -double din
    -I would like to have the rca terminals (pre amp) directly on the back of the unit instead of in harnesses (once again not top priority)
    -lastly at least a 6 inch touch screen

    I have a 1DIN SQ deck that is basically a volume knob with some RCAs hanging off the back...wanna buy it?

    I still can't believe how much stuff they can put into a HU these days.
