Yep, double din, DVD player, nagivation system, gps, XMTraffic capable, mobile computer capable, mobile entertainment system, drivetrain monitor, bluetooth, rear camera, voice recognition, phone, blah blah blah... I'm not familiar with the Kenwood products so I cant compare but I've just been impressed with the Avic Z2 and decided thats what Im going to get. BTW Aaron- I went ahead and bought the JL 10's and a 500w amp.

Here's an flash tour of the Avic Z-1. The Z2 is identical with some upgraded features.

good choice DM, I got the JVC (junk very cheap) mentioned before, but only because it was a cheap choice with a usb, until I can get my screen. It works alright, but power is weak and the Ipod and usb interface's sucks. I miss Kenwoods, last two I've had were stolen.

Kenwood Installed Sweet ! , I filled up a Jump Drive and stuck it in and away it went , Folder Navigation w/o a stop in sound play RIGHT ON ! Play Back Sound Not Quite up to the Clarion Pro Audios Clarity but seems to be more stable up top , With some HZ adjustments i may be able to tweak the Low Volume Highs In , Mids Developed a Slight Crackle I may be able to fix that via cross over as well ... Im Super Picky With the High Mids Lows , Clarity Ect... My truck is my home away from home any thing in it or a part of it I use EveryDay This is the great thing about it , 99% of Hobbies / Investments Do not get utilized on a daily basis Truck Bombs Do.

Next Time Someone Knocks ya for the $$ in your Truck Pick one of there hobbies and ask them if they use it EVERY DAY There tone will change

Over all im Very happy with the Kenwood it was 179,00 The next step up was only $50 more , and it added a motorized Face plate Like my last few head units had However the USB port was in the back , So i got the lesser one so i can just jump in push in my jump drive and be on my way .
