    If you had the chance to get a full blown navigation system that was also a dvd, cd, am fm. Touch screen stereo/ navigation system would you buy one? I can get one for 1400.00 and would mount it in the center of the dash. Just remove one of the heater ducts and outlets.

    yeah... if I had a D60, linked suspension, doubler, high end shafts, kick azz roll cage, 502, nice trans etc first, and I had $1400 that I didn't know what to do with, then I might consider it. ;)

    Can't you get cheaper ones with less bells and whistles? I mean, if getting lost is the only thing to be avoided... all that dvd blah blah blah bling can be skipped on... right?

    If this was going in something that never saw the dirt and was used for long drives then maybe it'd be nice to have the dvd stuff. but I'm with Est. throw in a thomas guide or get a little handheld gps unit...they've gotten pretty reasonably priced. and I already made the mistake of putting a nice face unit in my truck. It lasted maybe a year before it was full of dust,dirt,sand. If she's set on being able to watch movies why not look into a portable dvd player.

    If you went all handheld stuff you could probably get the same type of stuff she wants(maybe just not as nice) for half the price. and you'd have the conviniece of being able to use it in any vehicle.

    Portable DVD, Portable GPS, CD for the Blazer and you will still have $500 or more in your pocket.
