    You'd need a screen + GPS unit, I don't think there's any DIN nav/screen units yet.

    Alpine PowerNav rocks. Pricey, but good.

    No the tv tuner does not work off of your car antenna. And if you are already looking at getting the in dash unit put that money towards the joyride system it does one whole hell of alot more stuff for you.

    I've looked into the Joyride system before getting my Clarion DVD/Alpine PowerNAV combo. The Joyride is basically an enhanced version of the Microsoft AutoPC... pretty much abandoned by Microsoft and development is now totally on Clarion's side (thus no more MS / AutoPC name affiliation, even though it's the same hardware). Now, that's up to you to decide if it's a good thing or now, I've seen too many MS projects fail after they abandoned them.

    For the money you're paying for an all out Joyride system, you can get what I have, which gives a bigger screen, MP3, DVD capabilities, etc.

    You're not going to find anything cheaper... maybe you should look at the portable units? I have a Garmin Street Pilot Pro III or something, I think my dad bought that for around $2k.

    You can get the SPIII for $1299 here.
    http://www.prairie.mb.ca/sp3_d.htm

    Youll need to buy a canadian CD for it too (i never tried it with this, so not sure how good detail it is)...

    I never got it working very good with the internal antenna. You will probably want to invest in an external one as well. I guess this will depend for you, as it can depend on your car/where you mount it.

    Ive used the unit before. Its not bad, but is sometimes a pain to use.



    But Im guessing this is about as absolutely cheap as your going to find in a color GPS receiver (for now anyways...)

    The SP3 contains all maps for Canada that has been made so far by Navtech. Works real well in most vehicles on the dash.

    Alpine PowerNav
    Pioneer AVIC-90DVD

    The 2 most popular choices. About $2300-$3000 depending on what kind of deal you can get. The Alpine is about $100 more expensive because you need the $100 AV kit to hook up to non Alpine LCD screens.

    I bought my PowerNav + AV Kit from Audio Concepts Mobile. They sold me old stock though, kinda sucks, got a Nav disc from 2000. Missing some roads here and there, and no 7-11's in the Calgary database! If you buy from them, MAKE SURE they get you the latest model + disc.

    I don't think they have a site, try the phone book and give 'em a call.
