Hi Nelson

The old saying "you get what you pay for" definitely applies with head units, I bought an e*%#z unit about 12 months ago for about 400 bucks and it is absolute shite , the phone Bluetooth is garbage (people cannot hear you from all the interference) the radio only works properly on 2 stations (the rest for some reason will not stay in tune) the navigation works but it is far from acceptable, the reversing camera is the only feature that works properly. In my opinion your better off forking out your hard earned on a unit from a known brand . They are probably double the price of the e bay garbage but as I said "you get what you pay for". I'd also be interested in what other members are running in their rigs and how they perform ?, I'm currently thinking about getting a dedicated Bluetooth unit with a stereo and running a separate maps/nav unit like a hema/mud maps type set up.

cheers

Luke

Finished the installation of Gps navigation unit with bluetooth, reversing camera, digital radio, normal radio, dvd, connects to steering buttons on steering wheel etc from ppa car audio,

Overall, I found  ppa car audio the best, they were able to assist me were very knowledgeable and seemed to know what they were talking about. I must admit I am satisfied with what I have recived, every thing works like a well-oiled clock.I arranged to get the unit installed 1 day after calling the team at PPA, their professional came to my work , installed the whole lot in under 4 hours and left.
However all good and very pleased with the unit I am happy with the result.

Here is a link to the unit I purchased:
