Aftermarket nav/radio question

Ok so I have looked around and have not found anything on this forum. I have a 09 f250x fx 4 without sync. Just the plain Jane 6CD radio. I am looking to change it out to a touch screen with nav. I have . Looked at the factory ones however it appears I will spend a lot more doing this than going aftermarket and buying all the adapters to make the starting wheel controls work. I am not looking for anything extravagant however I would like a good reputable name brand. Please help guide me towards a good unit. There are a lot of choices out there and I don't completely know what to look for however I am not looking to spend a grand on this thing.

Thing I would like

Navigation
Bluetooth
Rear camera hookup
DVD
USB port

Thank you for all the help in advance. Ask what you need to help guide me.

Thanks for the input so far guys. I know Kenwood is a good brand so I will look at them. I'm trying to get under $500 so this will be fun. Keep the ideas comin.

I installed the Kenwood nt-700. What an improvment over the stock nav unit, both in terms of nav functionality and especially the sound, This thing rocks
Sold the stock unit for $500.00, so i recovered a lot of my cost.

I had the Kenwood DNX 9960 (until it was stolen) but I never liked the touch screen, you really had to press pretty hard and there was a delay, nothing like a smart phone as I was expecting considering it was at the time the top of the line model. Maby I expected too much on that that front, other than that I loved the Garmin GPS (the only way to go) and all the other audio features, never used most of the features though.

2008 (Job 1) F250 King ranch 4x4, snow plow prep package with 2.5 level. Black Maxx, B&W Diehard platinums. Dieselsite coolant and transmission filters, NCU Motorsports/amsoil oil bypass kit. Turbo blankets, 5.5 PMF traction
Please collect and message me Shell, Rotella oil cap codes aka "my miles matter" I'm trying to save up for a hat or something.

thanks for the replies. The research I am doing shows JVC or pioneer to be the ones able to fit my budget. Does anyone know an internet site that sells these cheeper than others, or i would even be interested in tested/used ones.
