Has anyone ever have any experience on this cheap in-dash and navi :D

Video + Navigation Combo: Dual XDVD8265 + Dual XNAV9525 - MP3/WMA playback when encoded on CD or DVD • DVD-R/RW/DVD+R/RW/CD-R/CD-RW compatible PLUS Remote Mount GPS Navigation Unit • 60W x4 Max Power (240 Watts) • Navigation System • Pre-loaded US an

Beside the lag of custom eq, it seems pretty nice. I like the fact that it come with a hard drive and 6.5" touch screen.
Any thought on this? Would I be better off with Avic-d3?

Thanks in advance :thumb:

From researching I've heard the same thing. It just I like the idea of having 10GB for MP3 storage. Plus I can play DVD while using Navi unlike D3 that I have to keep Navi DVD in.

Anyhow thanks for your input :biggrin:

0 Dual : 1 Avic D3

can you upgrade that whole 10 gb thing? like install a new hardrive (one from a computer) because that would be cool
I'm not sure. From the spec it actually has 20 GB! Just read below..

Product Description:

The XNAV9525 is the best navigation piece on the market! It can work with any video screen or unit that has audio and video RCA inputs. It also has a dedicated connection for the XDV8125 Dual unit for even more control.

The XNAV9525 separates itself from the competition by also storing 10GB of your favorite music using it's built-in harddrive!

The possibilities are endless for custom installations as you can put a custom 10-inch LCD monitor in your dash and add Navigation and MP3 playback. The XNAV9525 navigation maps also load extremely fast as the built-in harddrive uses a 2MB buffer and renders the navigation maps efficiently!

General Features:

Works with any MONITOR OR IN-DASH VIDEO UNIT that has RCA audio and video inputs.
20GB storage capacity
10GB DEDICATED FOR MP3 STORAGE!

2MB data buffer for fast access to your song collection and Ultra-fast continuous map rendering

Don't go for the Dual. While I haven't seen this unit all their other stuff is sh*t. It packs the cool factor and the low price for that initial "wow" but once you start playing with it you realise how much of a piece of sh*t it is.

Nice klk. Couple questions. Where did you get your D3? Did you self install? If so, was it easy?
i paid 750 shipped from a dealer on ebay. it included the ipod cable :thumb: install took me a whole day cuz it was my first radio install. also it took me and hour to locate where the factory amp was in the sedan. lol pics on 8thcivic just shows where it is on the coupe but on a sedan its under the drivers seat. then i had to run a factory amp bypass wire through the center console so i pretty much had the front of the car took apart lol. after i ran the wire i had to match the wires up. all in all it took me a whole day like i said and difficulty for me was about a 7/10 cuz it was my first install.
P.S. the driving bypass was incredibly easy. just moved the mute wire up one pin then i grounded the mute wire, parking brake wire and ground wire all together.
