    Help with choosing a double din head unit?

    I'm looking for something that will fit into my 2012 Altima Coupe. I've been looking at HU on crutchfield, and I've found a few that are decent but I really don't know any other sites that are reliable to look at. I also need the dash install kit that properly fits this car (obviously).

    I want something that has touchscreen, looks stylish, and is compatible with iPod. It will be hooked to amps for my subs/speakers so the power output doesn't really matter. Any suggestions on a HU that you've used or seen used and is worth the money?

    I have this one- Pioneer AVH-P8400BH 7" Touchscreen DVD Car Receiver w/ Bluetooth

    I think the best feature is that it takes a 16 gb SD card, and you can fit a ton of music on 16 gb! Its also compatible with iPod.



    HU: Pioneer AVH-P8400bh
    Amps: JL XD 400.4 / JBL 1201.1
    Front stage: HAT Imagine I61-2V2 6.5''
    Sub: JL 12w7, IB in the works.

    I run a clarion NX501. It's a nav deck with everything you want an I paid $485. I've seen the one year newer NX602 on Amazon for right around $500. Hell of a deal for a navigation unit. Has blu tooth, played DVDs, iPod audio, iPod video, aux port etc. I love my Clarion Head Unit.

    Haven't tried DIVX. My USB port is used for my iPod video line so I don't use just a flash drive.

    Pretty busy with work so I won't be able anytime soon. From what I can find online, the NX602 can play DIVX files.
