Double Din or single screen?

Hey everyone,

Im Nearing the time to make the decision if i want a single din screen or a double din. i have never had a double din in my supra. I love the flush look in the interior of a double din, but do any of you double din owners find it a little to low look at or operate? I have had a single din screan before and i loved the eyline view but i hated the fact that it blocked my AC controls. SO can anyone who has a single or double din screen contribute on what they think of them?

Thanks,
Daniel

Your title says "ding" :rofl:

But anyways, I did have a double din unit in my 93 supra (came with the car). It was a kenwood and it worked great, I dont know... I kinda perfer the pop out screen units. The double dins are quite expensive as well, so might as well put that money to better use>

But to each his own I guess.

I like my N2. And how often do you really need to change the AC controls? I usually just set mine and leave it be. And it's not like the controls are completely unreachable with the screen up.

eclipse quality is very good. kenwood is nice because it's 5.1 ready...HOWEVER...kenwood is a bitch to deal with on just about every aspect (customer service, warranty, etc)

i've seen more issues with kenwood screens than i have with eclipse screens (i'm the warranty guy for a car audio shop)

The new Kenwood NAVI is pretty small, bout the size of a pack of cigs...and you dont have to find speed sense wire anymore. :) I actually like the interface of the old Kenwood nav better...plus on the old one, you can have a chick with a UK accent direct you :bigthumb:
