GPS was the only thing I wouldn't use. That's why i chose the one I did. Some of them now are either Android or Apple compatible. Meaning you use an app off of your phone to run the gps and you don't have to buy an add on. When I first looked at them, one high end audio shop recommend the Kenwood for GPS. It'll all come down to price. Some of them real nice gps units can run over $1000. What size screen do you want. Most are either 6.1 or 7. I see Audiowerks sells the Kenwoods. Just make sure you get one with 4 volt pre outs . Good luck

Q, check out Crutchfield they have some good sales going on right now. I had been wanting the Sony XAV-701 HD but NOT wanting to pay $700. The sucker is on sale for $479 now, primarily because the NEW models have just come out!

Once you switch to a double din what can you do about waterproofing though?

Can you only ride on sunny days ?

Audiowerks makes a cover for a double din unit. It's suppose to keep the rain out.

That's the one I will be using. I hope it works. If not I will try to make something.
