Default pioneer 80-prs vs my double din - is it worth it?

I am wondering what I would benefit from switching to the 80-prs from my DNX-6160 double din.

I like the voltage on screen and removable faceplate, as well as time alignment, the EQ and crossover among other things.

Not sure what the RCA to speaker wire thing is. I also noticed an RCA input on the left side of the unit...is that actually an input?

The only thing my navi unit has is the navigation and rear view camera along with video input/output and playing music videos from the ipod. Not much in terms of SQ but the touch screen is nice for a LOT of things.

I can always get a cheap navi unit if needed, but I have some navigation apps on my smartphone that I think work good enough that I don't need it in the car...

Any suggestions are appreciated. My system is in my sig.

When you say active, what exactly do you mean?

Does the unit share the time alignment mic with the bluetooth handsfree mic?

The BT mic plugs in on the back of the unit. The auto tune mic goes in the 3.5 in the front. It doesn't stay plugged in all the time and its easy to use.

The RCA's on the back are, in fact, inputs.

I'm not sure what you mean about RCA to speaker wire deal, but there is a switch on the unit for you to go between high level outs and low level outs.

Active is is using the crossovers on the HU. You have a ton of control. Crossover points, slopes, individual level control for each set of rcas, polarity, independant left and right EQ.

You also have the convenience of two USB inputs. I used the supplied cable for thumb drives and used my iPhone cable for the other.

There is also a "standard" mode and a "network" mode. They're actually pretty similar but you get more control in "network." Although, there's no sub level in that mode which annoyed me but I just wired in a PAC. No biggie.

It really is a crazy amount of tuning and control for the price. The only thing that comes close is the Clarion cz702. But less EQ and no L/R. You also only get one USB and no auto tune (I think), but you get the option of HD or satellite radio. And it's ~ $100 cheaper.

i went from a AVH-p3200bt to a 80prs. noticed a huge difference as soon as the 80prs turned on, before any tuning was even done on it. and then as soon as it was in network mode and all fine tuned it was a whole nother world. go for it.
