EddNog has a GPS system that he uses. There's no way that the steering wheel AUDIO controls will work a GPS.

Try learning some grammar too...

Garmin 330; it's on sale for $600 at Best Buy on Black Friday.

Great unit; suction cup mounting makes it portable for use between multiple cars or even on a motorcycle (powered by rechargeable battery, which charges via cigarette lighter). Updates are free via internet & USB cable and there's no monthly fee. The interface is very easy to use and the touch-screen sensor is a well-calibrated sensitivity. It doesn't collect excessive grease, either, even with my fairly...moist...hands.

That's what I have. Regular PDA ($100-200), $80 GPS receiver, $100 set of Mapopolis Maps. Saved my butt numerous times over the last 2.5 years. Also can be moved from car to car, I always have it with me when I fly around the country. Oh, and the PDA is perfectly usable...

good luck finding a reputable turbo kit that wont f##k your car up for less than $3k...

i myself am thinking about either the AVIC-D1 or the Eclipse counterpart, but:

a.) i dont want to lose the steering wheel controls (but i have heard of adapters for the AVIC-D1 that fix that, does the eclipse one just plug in directly w/o adapters or does it require one as well?)

and...

b.) i really, really, really dont want to lose the iPod connectivity and control through the deck, as well as the sound quality (i dont know if Eclipse has a deck that does the GPS/DVD nav, is double-din and supports iPods; however the AVIC-D1 has an adapter to connect an iPod to it, ive heard that its crap though and doesnt allow you to control it through the deck)

if i could find a GPS/DVD nav double-din deck that does both of those things, i would drop my next 3 paychecks on it (or however many $400+ paychecks it takes to get it and get it installed along with new speakers, amps, and a sub or two)

I also have gone the PDA route with my GPS. I don't have the GPS unit yet but the maps on the PDA are priceless. Worked well this past weekend at the road rally.
