    best buy is not the right place to look.
    i am sure there are some no name brands that sells for that price.
    but if you are gonna invest in something like that i would suggest you choose reliability over cost.

    Hmm, alright...
    In that case i'm thinking i'll just get a $150 Pioneer deck and then the $120 Garmin my parents have, in case of emergency :p (i thus far have only used the GPS once, because i generally know my way around most of my state)
    But ya never know xD

    I would just go with a radio/CD deck in the dash, and get a nice GPS system seperately. ;) You can get a nice deck AND a nice GPS for $300 or under. :)

    I would get them separate because GPS becomes out dated, radios dont.

    Hmm, well from my research, i can change mas on the units, so having the GPS built in is fine then :p


    So....
    Two cheap no-names:
    No name from china
    "Eclipse"?? brand

    And Name brands:
    Clarion
    Kenwood


    Obviously I like the kenwood the best, but thats a little much IMO, xD


    But what do you guys think?

    Eclipse is actually a very good brand, that particular GPS system is just outdated.

    I'd go Kenwood. They're a reliable and good quality brand. ;) Only if... your budget allows it. ;)
