    Hey all, I'm interested in getting some new audio/video components so that I can run Navigation in my car. I've heard great things about the Alpine Navigation system, so when it comes to navigation, that is #1 on my list.

    However, I have been looking at this new in-dash flip out LCD head unit from Panasonic (CQ-VAD7200U) which does everything (ie. MP3, CDR, DVD, CD, TV), but Panasonic doesn't offer a navigation unit for it yet. It does have a dedicated Navi port, but I believe that is some special DIN plug that will be used at a later time when Panasonic does come out with a Navi unit.

    Does anyone have any experience with hooking up an Alpine Navi unit to a non-Alpine head unit, and if anyone is currently running a system like this, could you please comment on how you like it?

    Thanks for the help and info!
