Navigation Options-

I'm looking to get a navigation system put into my whip and wanted to know if there's any other options besides the ones I've already found. I wish the SS was double-din compatible since those are much easier to find and also cheaper. These are the only two I've found so far.

Saab navigation=$1200.00

or

Pioneer Avic N5= about $1200.00 or previous versions N4, N3=about $900.00
http://www.pioneerelectronics.com/PU...n-Dash/AVIC-N5

Also, I'm not familiar with the whole tom-tom/garmin systems found at pep boys/best buy. Are they any good and do they just attach to a certain area of your dash? Thanks

I love our garmin nuvi we have at work. I have never had a problem with it and plan on using it this weekend to go to Detroit.

I've got a TomTom One that I love. Use it every day, mounts securely to the windshield with a nice rugged suction cup. I'd definitely take that over an in-dash system (especially considering the price tag).

You dont need navigation. Getting lost gives you more time to drive your car.

ive always preferred garmin based units as they seem easier to use.

Often the portable ones are better than many of the OEM offerings.

I just got my folks a Nuvi 650 with a 4.3" screen for $219 no shipping or tax. Only car I do not use a portable in is the Viggen since I bought a used $1200 Alpine to use with my monitor for $200. Otherwise I choose a portable one most of the time.

That's what I used to think too, but getting lost in L.A. is no fun-

I have a buddy who owns Video Networks Inc. who does a lot of high end tech contracts. He recommends Garmin.
