The only thing Iíll suggest if you decide to go aftermarket, is to try to view one in direct sunlight from as close to the angle youíll see it in the truck. The kenwood unit I bought a few years back (dnx-692) has great garmin nav, sounds good, integrates effectively with the maestro, but I have two complaints. First, the dimmer function is notional only. Itís like a flare in the middle of the dashboard at night. Second, in my truck (rope colored interior on a resistol laramie), sunlight reflection off the seats makes it absolutely impossible to see anything on the screen in sunlight. It doesnít get brighter, the contrast is maxed out, and polarized sunglasses make it look like a leather-colored square in the middle of the dash. The necessity for a second xm antenna is annoying as well, but it was the only option at the time. I think the new maestro units can use the factory xm antenna. Also I have no ability to play sound in the truck from the rear dvd screen. But I have 9 and 3 year old girls, so I donít exactly count that as a bad thing...
