I was looking at this unit as well. You can't really go wrong with Alpine.

You have to do minor trimming but it will fit. It looks good with a DD unit. I'm not a fan of the "pocket" you get with a single Din unit.

Iv had a few double dins and dont really feal like posting my current set up due to break ins lol. But ya the fit if you dremel out the top and bottom flanges and you have to cut the top and bottom supports that come with the install kit. Atleast thats what I had to do with my clarion setup and it looks really clean and way more at home than a single din with those ugly gaps.

Thats what the BT stands for in the names is bluetooth. And then they all have navi of course. They have support for the back-up camera, you have to by the camera itself seperate though. I have one that I got for $30 from ebay and it works great

Wow 30 seems better than 150 off eBay

Do the pioneers face come off so it is a hand held navigation also

I think one of them might, I know the F700 and F900/90 don't though.

I've heard good things about the Kenwoods too, a lot of guys love em. I just like the Pioneer UI better personally.

this is the one ill be getting soon. Only thing it does not have is a DVD function but i don't care because i can just put movies on my ipod or laptop and hook it up to the unit anyways (thanks trent lol). The screen on this is detachable which I like also along with the touch screen.
