best in dash dvd player for the money

What is the best dvd receiver for the money? Looking for something that is less than $400 touch screen and can easily bypass the park brake feature. I want something that looks like a factory installed unit. Doesn't need to have a ton of features either just the basics will be fine.

Thanks

The most popular and arguably your best "bang for buck" is the Pioneer AVH-3200BT.

DvD with video output, touchscreen, easily bypassable, built in bluetooth, etc

Where is the best place to get one that also comes with all needed hardware to install. I usually deal with crutchfield but all they have is the 2300DVD

Try here Sonic electronix

This JVC is the one I just got, I like it a lot the one thing I dont like though is there is no mute button. Other than that its nice.

Rarely will you find everything in a "kit" along with the head unit. You'll want the following:

Head unit
Wiring harness
Installation kit
Steering wheel accessories wiring harness (required if you still want your steering wheel controls to work)

On my iPhone currently so don't have links handy but I'll grab some for you when I get home tonight.

buy a used avic. Either a d3 or z model. Has everything mentioned, including navigation. I love mine, and they can be had in mint condition for around 400 bucks.

I like the look of that Pioneer, I'm gonna have to check out the Avic. Thanks Fox Hunt for the link! I wonder if you can get the buttons to glow green to match the rest of the dash... I'd like all of my gadgetries to match
