    Default In-Dash GPS/Stereo Advice - 2009 Silverado

    Hello everyone! I am looking to change out my factory receiver for an In-Dash GPS/Stereo. I have been looking at reviews for Pioneer, JVC, Alpine, and Kenwood, but wanted to get your actual feedback. I would be looking at one of the higher end models, and an example would be:

    Kenwood Excelon DNX9980 HD
    Alpine INA-W910
    Pioneer AVIC-Z130BT

    Any advice, or feedback?

    my buddy has the Kenwood and he loves it...i was checking out the AVICs and almost bought it, but found a Dual (brand) from Crutchfield that was half the i bought that...but as with anything, you get what you pay is a nice unit...3 years installed...isn't as nice as the AVIC though...if i had the money, i would've gone the AVIC route though...just my $.02...good luck...

    I picked up the 9980 HD a few weeks back and absolutely love it. Have had no problems so far and installation was a breeze. I spent a lot of time researching before I made my purchase and everywhere I looked said that the 9980 HD had the best mix of sound quality and high quality features which is why I picked it up. Let me know if you have any specific questions about the head unit.

    What are the options for each one? Maybe show some pics to help decide.
