    Recommend a head unit

    for my Tundra. I was looking at double DIN nav setups but I've been told that unless I spend $1000+, I won't find one worth buying. It's going to be running Infinity Perfect 6.1's (x4) driven by an Infinity 4 4x125w, and probably two RF 8's driven by an Infinity One 800w. I'd like double DIN, but I could go single and put a scangauge below it..

    I always like the Pioneer AVIC series. You definately don't need to spend $1000+, you could get a nice one for around $600 these days. If you are going to spend over a grand, you might as well build a CarPC.

    ^+1 on JspeX

    Personally..I am going to go with the Kenwood Excelon DDX814. I have found them on the net for $600-700 New. Plus if I want to add Navigation to it down the road, its only an extra $250 as an add on unit. Also..this is a Double din unit..duh.

    It has gotten really good reviews(from what I have read from friends experience) and if you have an Ipod/Iphone/Droid, USB drive and such, it has a great layout to choose songs from when they are plugged in.

    Just my .2 cents :)

    Can't recall the brand or model number of the deck I'm looking at for the truck. I'll get that info and get back to you. Double Din, touch-screen. No disc player. No CD, no dvd. Just a usb port. Plus my portable hard drive, bam. All the music you could ever want. It's a $600 unit I think. Have to check with my audio guy.

    Does it have navigation? I don't really see much point to a double DIN touchscreen if it doesn't do something else. :p

    It does nav, yes. It plays video, but it plays ipod video format off a usb device.

    Hmm, that would be cool - I haven't used a CD in a long time. I just wish there was a universal MP3 player connector with control ability - some of us don't have iPods..but the world appears to forget about that. :(

    For my Tundra I added in 2006 the new Hdd 30 gig Hard drive based Navigation from Pioneer. Let me tell you this system during the time period has a lot of feature many today are playing catch up too.

    I like the Xm navi traffic feature heading into Atlanta and shows me the hot spots to avoid. the system is totally on music voice command and all my music is stored in the hard drive thus No cd's in my truck which waste space and effort.

    Here are the install pictures and video.
