getting OEM nav w/ nav-tv..what should i do for video source????

i dont have any cd source or dvd source! should i just get a dvd changer or cd changer + dvd player?

dvd changer (pros):
-can mount it in stock cd changer location in trunk (only alpine)
-can put 3 dvd and 3 cd before a trip
-stealth install
-plays vcd
-will have to use remote to control it..not compatible with nav
head unit
-mad $$

cd changer + dvd player or ps2pros)
-less expensive
-get a gaming system
-cd changer controlled with stock nav head unit
-where the hell would i mount the ps2?( i want stealth install but
i want to be able to change the dvd or game w/o getting out of
the car
-does ps2 play vcd?
-does the cd changer play all cd-r/w?

dude... get one of those generic chinese DIN size units which do dvd, mp3, vcd, etc... you'll be laughing.... if ur installer is smart u can do both ps2 and the dvd drive... I know that is redundant, but if u put a small switch in ur ash tray or sumptin, you get gaming, mp3, dvd, vcd, etc in one.... and both the ps2 and din size dvd unit should fit in ur glove box! =)


ps. ps2 does not play backup (cough cough) vcd's, is not all region out of the box.... cd changer does play all CD-Rs... haven't had a problem yet.
