Got any pics of the NX7000 installed? I'm curious how it looks sticking out 1/2". There are often ways to get a HU more flush, but it takes a little time and work, probably more effort than an installer would want to put into it.
I'm also curious to see real screenshots of the navigation. I have never seen the D3 navigation screens, but I'm sure it's similar to the D2 and Z-series. That speed limit indicator is awesome! Last month, I took a long road trip and many dozens of times I would ask my wife, "what's the speed limit? I haven't seen a sign." When she was driving, she did the same thing. We both agreed that a speed limit indicator on the navi unit would be really helpful. Also on the lane guidance, is it any better than the Pioneers? On the Pioneer, the lane guidance only seems to work on the large 6+ lane freeways in the larger cities. On my recent trip from Springfield MO to Columbus OH, I think it only worked in St Louis and Columbus, but nowhere in between.
No QWERTY keyboard is unfortunate, but that might not be a big deal. I do know switching from D1 (ABC keyboard) to Z2 (QWERTY), I was able to type a ton faster, so that might be something I'll miss. It does seem to be a completely different system so I guess I'd have to try it.
On the iPod, I had a JVC KD-AVX2 years ago that had a skip forward 10 and skip back 10. That made browsing the playlist much faster. Does the NX7000 have this feature, or at least a way you can jump to the middle of the list rather than having to page down?
