    The Eclipse AVN5510 seems to be the best bang for the buck. Big 7 inch screen, comes w/ NAV and all that

    The pioneers w/ a decent screen are over $2k.

    Kenwood doesnt have anything out it seems.

    Alpine is really expensive b/c they charge more for NAV.

    We do a ton of Eclipse Nav's at the shop I work at. Very nice piece for the money.

    If you arn't worried about using an iPod then I would go with the Pioneer D3.

    Not a fan of the slot and knob but for the money it looks pretty solid.

    If you want to use an iPod you can't go wrong with Alpine. Currently have the IVA-W200 and love it.

    Look for the vids on youtube showing off the d3. Ipod use is perfect on the touch screen and fast.

    Have mixed feelings still. I do want to get some hands on with the unit and see how well it works.
