    Hello all... I am taking a poll for what company has the best aftermarket double din radio. Please tell me what you are using and why you think it is best. Looking for any recommendations as well. I have been flipping back and forth between Kenwood and Pioneer. Leaning more towards Kenwood 9903s but not sure. Also considering Pioneer 4200nex . Not to sure about the Alpine units out currently. Would prefer to keep CD/DVD radios in play as opposed to the ones that do not play them. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated :thumbsup:

    Keneood dnx893s here.
    Love it!!:thumbsup:
    My truck came with Navigation so I decided on a Navigation unit. :rolleyes:

    Kenwood has always been my go to brand.

    I haven't used a CD/DVD in a headunit in years mostly due to the wide use of SD/Micro SD cards. I currently have an all Android headunit (not Android auto) and couldn't be happier especially with all the software mods for my type of unit.

    I'm with @GNTundra. Kenwood has the best user interface, and accurate navigation. If I had 1 nit, it would be that viewing it from the side is a little washed out. I wish the factory bezel was tilted slightly towards the driver as it is in some vehicles.

    Stay far far away from Pioneer. They have a clunky (read slow) interface, and their navigation is not that accurate.

    Thanks for the heads up. I have always liked Kenwood. It has just been so long since I've purchased the radio.

    The annoying thing with Kenwood units is that you have to acknowledge the danger of using the unit while driving every time you start the vehicle.

    Pioneer 4200nex owner here and I'm very happy with it, but any of the major brands will be good. The tundra is one of the last full size trucks where it's fairly easy to swap the HU out.

    looking to replace factory Radio with a pioneer avix588bhs
    pioneer avhi5800bhs..love the sound quality..the gps app sucks..is igo..the same one that comes in android radios..waze works well..which I like better than google map. I have heard from siblings kenwood have better features.. in my opinion kenwood cuts the highs a bit to much for my taste.

    Pioneer now offers the 4400/6400/8400NEX with wireless android auto, so that's the new HU king for me

    Slight thread detour. Just scored slightly used pioneer AVIC-8100NEX for free, has Nav and camera.
    Anyone familiar? Think its decent.
