Question Factory Nav unit or Alpine/Pioneer?

This is for my 09 GT, price is around the same for all three except the (1k, +install on the latter two), I like the factory Ford unit fit, plug and play. It comes with a touch screen, in-dash 6-disc, Nav, Sirius. I have the Shaker500 which is a nice sounding system, no SYNC/bluetooth so that means I wouldn't have it on the factory Nav unit either.
I really Like the Alpine (505) especially the bluetooth and 50wx4, IPOD/MP3, bigger screen and reverse camera option. Cons, I think it has only single CD disc and you have to buy the blackbox seperate, Siruis adapter and install.
The Pioneer (which I believe makes the factory unit) has pretty much all the same features as the Alpine but the Nav. unit is built-in, so little cheaper by about $200.00 still have to buy a sirius adapter and install.
Ahhh decisions...

I'm getting a W505, for a variety of reasons, if that helps any.


WTF @ the $1000+ install? I had no idea.... Looks like I'll be installing that bitch myself.

I've found them on ebay for around $600.00 and then the Nav box for around $265.00, I'm sure you will need an adapter plugs and a install kit.

Yeah. To help with cost I'm going to skip out on the Blackbird nav at first (have nav on my phone), though EW on here has said they've got a newer nav unit that is more accurate than the blackbird.

You might ought to hit him up, for a price and install price. He's always treated me well.

W505 does not include blueteeth AND the P1 nav is weak.

505/Blackbird combo is sweet, although if you like the factory one, and aren't a car audio junkie like I am, you might as well just stick with it.

W203 is a smaller screen, does not charge 5V ipods or iphone, no iphone video, no ability to use new nve-m300 navigation, etc.
W505 has much better picture, larger screen, charges 5V ipod/iphone, plays ipod/iphone video, has better GUI, you can add the Imprint processor, will accept the new m300 nav.
Neither unit has bluetooth but you can add it to either unit.

I like alpine and prefer how they operate as compared to the kenwood but kenwood has more units to choose from and more units with built in nav and bluetooth. Kenwood updates software often and since Garmin is doing the nav, it is updated often and you can buy new maps annually.
