Question Looking at getting navigation/stereo unit for my truck

What are my options? I want something simple to install myself (plug and play) I currently have the 6 Disc in dash reciever.

I found this:
Ford F150 F250 F350 04~08 In Dash DVD GPS Navigation FM | eBay


Are there any other suggestions? I want something that I dont need to install housing adapters to make it fit/trimming/extra accessories etc....Possibly something cheaper 300-400?


Thanks for all you guys help in advance.

Really? Not a single suggestion, hard to get feedback on anything specific on this forum.

You're going to want a double DIN stereo obviously. Check out Crutchfield....they have some nice stuff and tell you at a glance what may need to be modified to mount a particular model in a specific vehicle.

For plug and play, you'll need to buy some wiring adaptors / harnesses (which you can buy at a stereo shop or through Crutchfield)

I put in the DNX6060 from kenwood. I like it because of its Garmin navigation. The only thing I don't like about it is that my iPod goes stupid on it once and a while and I have to disconnect and reconnect it. It takes it about 45-60 seconds to boot up too. Other than that its plug and play for the most part (minus steering wheel controls, and that's not hard). its about ~700 IIRC though.
