Navigation for 08 Silverado
I want to install a in dash navigation unit. It seems like its gonna be between the Kenwood Excelon DNX8120 and the Pioneer AVIC-Z3. These 2 units seem to be the cream of the crop. I need the rear camera to help me back up the tank. I will also install the bluetooth and Sirius satellite add-ons. I am very concerned about the unit cosmetically blending in with the dash. I can't have the buttons clash with the dash. The dash colors are pretty much all black with chrome trim around buttons and dials. Does anyone have any of these units and help me out. Thanks.

In my opinion, just go grab a garmin for like 100 bucks. You can take it in any car (helpful for rentals when you REALLY need the directions) and camping.

here's my reasoning why i want a in-dash. im a gadget guy. so a in-dash unit like one of these 2 is pretty much like a computerized entertainment center with touch screen fun. rear view camera is a must. also with the bluetooth no more earpiece needed. thanks guys.
