I am going to be buying a double din for my brother. His money, i just get to choose it. One of the things he wants is a gps. I am wondering at this point which company has the best gps in there double dins? After reading up on quite a bit a reviews it seems they all have their ups and downs. He does have a smart phone so he doesnt need it but he said it would be nice to have. Whats your experience with gps on different units and is even worth spending the extra money since he has a smart phone and it has google maps. Hes got a budget of about 700 for the headunit. I am thinking he should just keep using the phone, get a cheaper unit and use any left over money for the rest of the system.
Headunit- Alpine CDA-117
Wire- Shok Industries Comp series
Battery- XS Power d3400
Speaker Amp- Digital Designs S4
DC Power 270xp alt
