In-Dash Car Video With GPS

Any suggestions on what I should replace my stock cd/radio with?
How much is a Ford navigation/audio system?
How do I get the stock unit out?

Thanks a lot!!!

Howdy,
Key thing to finding what you want is shop around. Ford Navigation/dvd is nice, yes, but the aftermarket world has a bit more things, and the price will be a little more fair on the aftermarket side. In my F150 I have a Pioneer Avic F900BT, and all that the AVIC Head Units are hyped up to be outstanding, this new generation of AVIC tore to shreds. It sucks. The load up is slow, the Nav is alright, the iPod player freezes, is slow, the screen has poor responsiveness. Overall not pleased with the unit. I am searching around as well.

Be aware that the dashboard on your truck is not a full 2 din system. A lot of my friends with Powerstrokes go with a single din fold out, that way they don't have to cut the dash. Others just cut the dash.

I didn't know that it wasn't a 2 din, i just assumed it was...What needs to be cut? any write-ups on it? I'm looking in one of the Alpine double din.

Is it going to fit right in my dash? I have an '06.

Thanks for all the help.

to get your stock unit out u can buy a 15-20 dollar tool or get two wire coat hangers and stick them in the holes. if you go with the coat hanger u might need to help it a little just have patience with it they can be trying sometimes.

and as far as the nav yes look around you can get a much better bang for your buck with aftermarket.... pioneer is really good but if you have some money go with a alpine. good luck lmk if u have a questions

You have to cut away at the actual dash. If you take your time, measure 5 times, cut once, or cut a little bit at each time...at the end sand with a fine fine grain sand, to smooth it out you will be alright. Don't go too much, or you will have trouble! It is a 1.75 din, not a full double din. I don't understand that, but it is what it is. I currently have a single din replacement that was on the truck when I bought it. It has a little storage space underneath it at this time. There are plenty of people here that have done the conversion to a full double din. It is just a bit more time consuming, or you could pay a shop to instal the unit, and if they F up, make them buy you a new dash!
