How does yours compare with the Eclipse?
Crutchfield says that because you have to trim the factory dash opening slightly to get ANY double DIN unit to fit. It is simple to do, but unless it's a straight bolt-in, Crutchfield will not list it.cbramsey said:How much difficulty have in putting either the Kenwood or Eclipse into my 2003 XLT? I have the factory 6cd changer that "appears" to be the right size. I have gone to Crutchfield and they say these will not fit.
I know that is a DVD player, but is it also a NAV unit??kbosworth1 said:I have the Alpine iva-w205 :
Yea, that is a cool idea. That NAV unit does not get very high marks from reviewers however (I don't remember why right at the moment, but there are drastic differences between different brands of NAV setups), but I haven't personally tried it myself so I can't comment on that.kbosworth1 said:it does not have the NAV built in but what is cool is you buy the portable Alpine Blackbird 2 and you can put mp3's on the blackbird and it docks inside the unit :
I agree, I was an Alpine dealer when I was in the stereo business.Scooter Scott said:wow...I didn't realize alpine could put out such a poor product. Alpine used to be top of the line!
ANY Garmin unit will work just fine for you. All the Garmin's use the same routing engine, just the features are different.jonas1022 said:That's alot of misdirected miles. Is there one for a reasonable price that can do the routing correctly?
I didn't realize that, but I don't really keep current on mobile audio anymore.Scooter Scott said:I've heard that Alpine units have went downhill overall...not just in the nav units but that their stereos haven't been up to par either...
