So recently I had this stolen from me: Pioneer AVIC-Z2

I loved that damn thing, but I really don't want to pay another $1300 and risk having it stolen again. So I'm looking for something similar, with a max price of $800. The
JVC KDNX5000 seems to have the same options as the AVIC-Z2, minus the large touch screen. CNET also gave it a very nice review. Is there any other units that I should be looking at? Keep in mind the 2 main features that matter to me are the navigation and hard drive for music.

Pioneer has a NAV system for about $800 but it doesn't have an internal hard drive so you have to load the maps with the CD every time you want to use the NAV system.

I'v had my eye on the Jensen 9412 with a Jensen NAV101 add on. 600 total if you ebay it and seems like a nice little package

I have the Kenwood DNX7100. In addition to what Jules said, If you were to play a cd with mp3s on the $800 D3, you'd have to take the nav disc out of the player.
I bought the Kenwood after much research and I don't regret it. Its got the Garmin GPS in it with TTS and 3d view etc. It's got features out of the wazoo. You can get it for a good price at Amazon or ebay.
