08 Navagation
 
Considering changing the stock radio to a system with navagation. The jeep now has the small nav. on the top of dash. Would like to have a larger screen. Looking for some input on if dash nav. would be removed totally to install a new unit. Preference on brands?

I wanted to do the same thing so I got this JVC system and then figured out I needed speakers that then made me get an amp. Then I had to get a backup camera. I probably got $1000-$1200 in mine. Is that what you are looking to do?

Pioneer has some nice models and never had problems with them in the past .go to crutchfield and look around

Have a pioneer avic z3 unit in the xb. The unit is about 3 years old now. Still an amazing unit. Recently added the back up camera. It's a double din size and will fit jeep well

You will not go wrong with pioneer, alpine, clarion, or eclipse. I think pioneer was one of the first to start doing after market applications for GPS/DVD.

Like someone just mentioned, it can be pricey. I think that 1200 is a conservative estimate. Not sure on what the units cost now. I'm thinking a reasonable estimate on all work done could run you 300-500 for parts and labor plus unit cost extra.

Going to make some calls tomorrow and see whats available somewhat locally. I know from past experiences that this triggers off possible amps, speakers, subwoofer, etc. Never ends, but all good!
