Icon3 Pioneer AVIC-F700BT?

Thinking about getting the Pioneer AVIC-F700BT. Is it a hard install? What else do I need other then an installation kit?

Pioneer AVIC-F700BT (avicf700bt) All In-Dash Car Stereo Receivers Car Stereo Receivers and Head Units Car Audio Car Audio, Video, & GPS Navigation - Sonic Electronix

Got this idea lastnight, I want to see if its worth it...

Get the kenwood dnx5100. Its much better. I have messed with both and bought the kenwood. Its got a much better gps navigation software and the interface is 100 times better throughout.

I disagree I like the Pioneer much better. But thats just my opinion though. Go to a audio shop and use both and then get whichever one you like better.

No, the 900BT and 90BT are the only ones that do.

I love my 700, wish I sprang for the 900 though.

Have an ipod video? Or a newer nano that will hold videos? If so then just put the DVD on your ipod.

Way overpriced, get the F900BT instead and save some cash. I wouldn't trust that topbuysdirect site. It probably doesn't include any of the cables or antennas that you need. Thats how rangerboy101's was.

Yep I got mine for like $390 and all I got was the headunit. Didnt even get a damn manual for the thing. Not that I needed the manual but that's not the point.

Wouldn't it still be way cheaper to buy the 700bt for $230 and buy the installation kit and cables separate than to buy everything for like $430 or whatever the other places want?

The kenwood is an awesome until. I have the 5140. Those newer pioneers aren't very good, the sOftware could be way way better. Not to mention they take like a min to load on startup. Highly recommend the kenwood.
