Which headunit with nav? pics?

Hey guys, I am looking for a decent "affordable" nav capable head unit for my 2012, my car has back up cam and heated seats, I also need to decide on an install kit... Any info from someone who already did it would be great, thanks

I have the Kenwood DDX9704S with the PAC face plate. I can use apple maps as my nav with this unit.

Just a few: They could have spent a little more money or research time on the connectors which if you're not careful you can easily rip off the main circuit board. The chime is a kind of chinzy. You can't change certain settings like door locks, etc., without the PAC add on. Other than those small issues, I'm really happy with mine, and they have great customer service if things go wrong.

I agree, the chime is a little cheezy and my turn signal warning clicks are different. Other than that I'm pleased.

I had a professional install mine. This was way over my head.

It wasn’t bad at all if you’ve ever installed a radio before. If you can solder and use basic tools it’s not complicated. The most nerve wracking part is doing a bit of trimming in the dash - some apparently have been able to do it without trimming - and cramming all the stuff back in the dash.

Just make sure you look at the videos that have been made and try to read the long PAC thread.
