In dash navigation???

Anyone have any comments or pictures of in dash navigation systems for an 04 F350? I want something that fits in the factory location and has a 6" screen or so that DOES NOT flip out. I want the style that has a touch screen and appears factory.

Re: In dash navigation???

I have a couple of photos of my Eclipse Unit here. The screen does open out though -- but only to get the disks out (I don't think I have opened it yet except to test it).

Re: In dash navigation???

I am also interested in a factory looking unit. I would also like to have an integrated XM radio receiver.

I wonder if the Expedition Navigation/Radio could be utilized?

Re: In dash navigation???

I have just finish installing a Pioneer AVIC Z1 and a Rosen DVD player in my 2006 F350. Absolutley love it, Looks factory. In my opinion, it's the best system out there.

The AVIC-Z1 includes XM/Sirus/Ipod/Navigation/Music Library (30 Gig Hard drive) blue tooth capable cell phone operation and other things I haven't figured out yet. Has more features than I will probally ever use. I have it set up so that I can put in a DVD and control the rear DVD player for my son, or I can put the DVD in the rear player and a different DVD up front. Pretty awesome when I consider that I used to have 8 track tapes in the 70's. Makes you wonder what they will have in another 30 years.

Like Jwarren said the Pioneers are excellent units.

Re: In dash navigation???

I just put an Alpine IVA-W200 in my truck. It's a Double DIN unit with a 6.5" LCD touch screen, and Alpine has options for XM and Nav (plus excellent iPod controls built in to this model).

I have a Garmin StreetPilot 2610 GPS, so I'm not messing with the Alpine Nav. But I did put in the XM tuner and iPod cable, and, other than the head unit itself and the XM antenna, which I put on the dash up by the windshield (with the cable routed behind the dash, so you can't see it), you see NOTHING that is non-factory. My iPod is in the little glove box by the driver's knee. The XM tuner module itself is behind the dash, in a little hole behind the main glove box, and the XM controller module is behind the head unit, mounted to a large round tube that runs through the dash from one side of the truck to the other. The W200 is not as deep as the stock radio, either.

Also, Alpine has a Bluetooth handsfree add-on coming out shortly. I plan to get that, too. It plugs into the head unit and has a microphone to be mounted somewhere. With that, all you need is a Bluetooth-compatible cell phone and the truck stereo becomes your handsfree phone module. When you get a call, the stereo will automatically mute and the sound will come through the truck's speakers. Nifty. And, again, minimal non-Factory stuff cluttering up the cab.

I know the '04 and older SuperDuty trucks aren't Double DIN, but guys have posted that they installed DDIN units with only minor trimming. And the W200 is actually a fair bit shorter than the stock radio in my '06, so maybe it would fit in an '04 just fine.

ps. I got my W200 from for $812, delivered.
