So I've been researching the last few weeks on a new in dash Nav unit for our new Odyssey. We decided not to go with the factory installed DVD/NAv unit (and saved ourselves about $4,000), so looking to build a system that's comparable: Nav/DVD HU, ceiling mount DVD screen (maybe 2 of those).
My emphasis in features are:
-strong navigation features/accuracy (speaks street names, accurate time of arrival, etc, POI's, traffic)
-dual zone (DVD in back, music up front)
-accepts existing back up camera
-plays nice with steering wheel controls
Less interested in:
(I don't have an iPod, and radio/Sat music is fine by us)
So, been looking at the AVICZ120BT, DNX9140, DNX9960, Alpine 900BT. Any others? I see Eclipse out there, but not sure about them. Clarion? JVC?
Also, ceiling mount LCD screens: seems like a lot of brands I never heard of, and there's certainly questionable quality out there.
I know each has its own pros/cons...and at first I though the Kenwood's nav performance was the strongest, but (of course) read some negative things about it.
So I guess I'm looking for (on average) the 'pros' that closely match my 'emphasis'.
