    the pioneer f700bt is probably your best bet. I almost bought a remanufactured one for 400 dollars yesterday... instead I manned up and got the f90bt.

    yeah the f900bt is nice - the biggest diff is that you can get msn direct (which imo blows) - and the DVD player, which is nice - if you are just looking for a navigation system with CD player, SD card (which plays songs/movies), iPod interface and bluetooth hookup for your phone....then the base model can be purchase for 400-450 on ebay.....hopefully you can install it yourself or you can look to spend that extra 100bux at the service station

    I got the f90... the f900 doesn't have the 4 volt pre-outs... they have 2 volts. It creates a clearer signal vs 2 volts.

    If you don't want a DVD player.. get the AVIC F700BT from pioneer. It's the same as the one I have, but without the DVD playback. You can still play videos from your iPod I believe though. You can probably get it for 450... if you get it under 500 it was a good deal.

    yeah it does come with iPod integration (and video playback) - it also comes with 8G SD card for audio (and maybe video playback, but never tried it). I had one for about a week when I realized the dealership installed teh wrong model and took it back for the upgrade......500 would be the most you should pay (and that would be without shopping around).

    you need to buy a cable connector that connects the stock stereo cables to your aftermarket stereo.

    These wiring harnesses are about 20-30 dollars. Pretty cheap, and a lot easier than rewiring your stereo.
