Which Touchscreen Nav is the best bang for your buck?

Looking for a good Nav/Radio unit. Any recommendations? Thanks.

I have the newer eonon ga6150f and am replacing it with the Dynavin n6 because of its better sound quality and it's ease of use with the iPhone. The eonon unit works great and is cool but it is more tailored towards android phones being an android device. Also the sound quality was a big deal for me which is why I'm selling the eonon after just a week of being installed and my new Dynavin n6 is coming today. Don't get me wrong, for the money the eonon is a nice unit and works well with cool upgraded features for the e46. Especially the plug and play figment and OEM look. But the Dynavin is a better unit all away around and also almost three times the price. One of those "you get what you pay for" type things, but again the eonon is a great value for what you get.

Yeah I was thinking of getting a Eonon because of the price, but a lot of people complain about them..the Dynavin sounds great, but pretty pricey. I'm, torn.

Apparently this new Sony unit will fit, and the price is right.

The Dynavin N6 is a very noticeable upgrade over the stock Business CD for sound quality. Immediately noticeable. Not only did I notice it, but my wife, for whom great sound is not a big deal, noticed it immediately and clearly. I don't want to over-sell it. It's not audiophile quality, just a very real improvement.

The other consideration is service. Jeff is top notch. I just had a small problem with my N6 (slightly out of the official warranty period) and Jeff took care of me immediately. No fuss. Jeff is in the states and very active on this board. I've never heard of anyone having even the slightest problem dealing with Jeff. Can't say the same about any of the other nav/radio vendors on this board. Hard to put a value on that, but I personally value it highly.

In the end, if you want essentially a tablet to entertain you in your car, one of the Android units will probably suit you (if you are not picky about sound). If you want a rock-solid audio system that works without fuss, that includes nav and decent source options, I'd recommend the N6 as the only consideration.

The only thing that made me consider the Avin Avant (another Android unit which Jeff also sold at the time) was the Torque app, but ultimately that was no where near as important to me as not having to fuss with my nav/radio and good sound.

[edit] Where are you in Texas?
