Best DVD / Nav System If $$ Not An Object

What is the best HU display with a dvd internal or external nav system out now if money was not an object? How does the pioneer avn-1 compare with the 7500?

They are similar, but the AVIC-1 does not have a seperate navi, the nav dvd plays in the slot. So you cannot have the nav going and play a dvd and change the nav location or route at the same time.

IF $$$ is no object, the AVH7500 with the AVIC 80 is best setup IMO. The Kenwood 915 is good and the nav SW is almost identical, but, they are using a new mechinisim for moving the display. It looks like it might have problems as time goes on.

The pimensions of the units are the same. Its just that the AVIC has the same screen as the AVH6500 6.5 inch, rather then the 7 inch of the AVH7500.

Also, the AVIC cannot us a dvd changer, it is did, then you could use the interal dvd for nav, and the changer for DVDs and CDs. Bummer.

That's why I am going to go with the 6500 or 7500 with the AVIC80.
