I have a 04 f250 and I installed the pioneer AVH-P4200DVD. It's been a great head unit. Ive had no problems with it. I also had 7" monitors installed in the head rest of Botha seats. Works very well for long didstance trips.

I have the factory navigation head unit made by pioneer and added a lock pick to it which allows me to watch movies using my ipod as a hard drive. The lock pick also allowed me to add a couple cameras which uses the nav unit for the display. Keeps it clean factory look to it, with benefits.

your choice of Pioneer double din from Sonic Electronix add the PIE steering wheel control adapter if u have those

Just because I have a banner that states "Moderator"
does not mean you can't argue with my opinions !

I recently put in the Pioneer AVH-P4400, got it for about $400 from Amazon. It works awesome. I went with the Metra Axxes steering wheel controller it works perfect and get the right bypass to watch video while in D.

I used the install kit Metra 95-5812 (double DIN) and it worked well, I forgot to order the adapter plug so I was pretty pizzed at myself when I went to install.

All in a 2006 F350 it looks and fits like OEM.

Its been in for about 2 months and I love it, it doesn't have NAV but can be added or just get the Pioneer that comes with.

Oh and go with the cheaper iPOD cable that is about $16, it works great for audio and video from the iPOD. I use mine as a hard drive as well, works great.
