What do you think about this indash?

http://www.bestbuy.com/site/olspage....=1108125505761

I am looking into getting an indash setup and was wondering what your thoughts were on this? I don't want to spend 2 grand on a HU when I could spend 2 grand on an rcd kit.

Thanks!

absolutely not man...no way

go with either a single drop down tv, or tv's in the visors...WAY cheaper, good screen output, etc...

i was going for tv's in the visors, but midway got wrapped up in other mods and chunked that idea out the window...

Wait for the NEW 2006 Aplines.

My thing is if your going to spend around the $1,000 range go for the best, do it right the first time, and get what you want. Personally I want the DVD Navi. versions that way i dont need to find another spot to put the player or w/e.

Ok guys, I dropped that concept all together. Instead, I bought an 8" Lilliput monitor. And I have officially started my truckputer :) I am also looking into a custom box in the rear for 2 10's and amps. I think even 2 monitors back there as well.
