Hi,
I'm planning to put navigation in my new Honda Civic (9th generation) and I was looking at these two top models of those two brands. I hoped You guys could help me out which one of these two is better?

http://www.kenwood.eu/products/car/navigation/navigation/DNX7250DAB/details/

Thanx for any help provided!

I prefer Pioneer. See, it's hard to a consensus.

Pioneer has faster processors and less functions to shuffle through to get to where you want to be. I'm a pioneer dealer and have a 100%success rate with it too.

I have no issues with either brand; but as a general rule from past products of each I have this opinion:

If you have / will have external amps for all the speakers:
Pioneer or Kenwood

If you plan on running the speakers off of the deck:
Pioneer

Just reverse the polarity; it's guaranteed to work!

FYI if OP hasn't decided on a deck yet, almost all new Pioneer double DIN headunits have active 3-way capability and auto EQ/TA, similar to the 80PRS. Pretty cool!

Another vote for Pioneer. Their equipment is built better and will last longer. Even cosmetically, most Kenwood units have their plastic flake off the buttons after a few years.
