What does everyone have? How do you like yours? Pros/Cons?

I am fond of Pioneer and Alpine, but Pioneer's Navi units didnt get very good ratings as far as I can see, Alpine had mixed results.

in the fleet we have 1- Pioneer Avic z1 and 2 Pioneer AVIC-z2's absolutly love them, I don't have one complaint about them at all, the built in hard drive is priceless, being as it stores music off your cd's and saves it, plus stores all of the navigation maps and POI's therefore there is no stupid disc to fool with when you want use navi..Its hands down the best unit I have ever hand the pleasure of using!

I had a Kenwood DDX7015, IIRC. The navigation software sucked. It's now in my buddy's truck, and he hates it as well. I love my Garmin GPS units. They don't play DVD's, but the flip down in my truck does...I have never used it though.

Age is a hell of a price to pay for maturity.

I have a Garmin- Nuvi- works great- easy to upgrade the maps and cheaper. Plus I can pull it out and take it with me. Works better than the wife new Benz unit.
I would go with portable units.
