Searched! but cant come up with the perfect one for me... help!

most of the threads ive searched through are old model's now...

im searching for a Touch Screen w/ DVD + Nav

can be single or double din...

- i know most require new rear speakers but which screens do not?

- my friend used to work at bestbuy so he will be hooking it up for me.

- it doesnt matter how large the screen is to me.. 6.5 or 7 whichever.

- and also be able to bypass the parking DVD play thingy.




Thanks, Johne

Any aftermarket headunit you choose, will require you to replace the rear speakers.

Unless you only connect the "tweeters." - From what I believe, because it's a speaker ontop of a speaker right?

Good nav units= Pioneer Avic n1, avic d1. Alpine makes one. The Eclipse one is my personal favorite, the 5424. Hot shit.

You should have. That's the proper way to do it.

See useful posts sticky for details.
In short, there's no cross-over for stock rear speakers as the stock one is built into stock amp. Without a cross-over, you run into all kind off issues.

I am sorry to tell everybody, but I had my eclipse avx-2494 hooked up by a local shop and my rear speakers did not have to be changed. There is no distortion or abnormalities coming through them and all of the stock speakers are working.
