Best GPS in a car radio?

Looking to replace my headunit with something with GPS and bluetooth built in? Anyone know the best GPS one?

x2 for pioneer, also alpine is the mfgr that lexus/acura use for their facotry gps.


but note to you, anytime downtown odds are no gps even if its tied into the speed wire will be accurate down there.

I like the kenwood with garmin built in.


I'm sick of following my dreams. I'm just going to ask them where they're goin', and hook up with them later!!

I've had a Pioneer for about 4 years. It's plenty accurate and easy to use.

Never a bad time to climb... unless the weather is really horrible, and then you climb inside!

As far as indash GPS go, only real two contenders out there that have a relatively easy to use interface, as well as being accurate or having updated maps. I have had Pioneer's entire AVIC line up the the Z110bt, never had a problem with a single one, and has gotten me where I needed to go 98% of the time. Close runner up are Kenwoods. Only reason I would put them in 2nd behind pioneer is that their UI can be a pain to navigate. A distant 3rd would be Clarion, but they look alot like an OEM would, with an equally as confusing UI as a kenwood. PLUS the screen quality when displaying maps can make reading street names on a map difficult.
