8" LCD GPS Deck

Hey all,

I came across this while browsing and looks to be a nice fit! For those who don't like the double din look or a good option for those wanting to put in a stock RL Navi system into a non-navi RL without the hassles as i've read that it can be expensive and extensive.

The HU is an Alpine INE-Z928HD 8" and the chassis mounts and fits into a regular double din opening. I believe only the trim ring on the dash kit needs to be custom cut to fit. I wonder what other "cheaper" 8" gps decks are out there? similar to this as I think the Alpine is $$$$ and may be hard to get.



Wonder if this RL belongs to a member on here?

True but i think the double dins, with the 6.2-7" screens look kinda small in our dashes, almost out of place with too much space. There's so much room in our RL dashes (the stock decks are huge and wide). Wondering if they make 2.5 or 3 din decks?

There are a few of those cheap Windows Ce double din decks around here locally for around the same price but i haven't had a chance to drop in to play with any of them yet.

Re: 8" LCD GPS Deck

R-Tech
I have this alpine installed in my 08 RTL.
I found the unit online thru a sears 3rd party for 1199.00
Paid to much to have it installed, but it makes me happy every time
I drive. The install looks factory, my dash doesn't have the metallic trim, so it blends in a lot better.
I think the picture you posted is from sound fx out of Rhode Island.
As far as sound goes, I installed Hertz speakers in the doors along with the Hertz tweeters in the dash, infinity basslink stuffed under the rear seat. (Had one from my old ford) sounds great, I need to do the dynamat and I think that should keep me content till something newer comes along.
The HU has a lot going for it, I just wish the firmware updates would be a little easier.
Hope this helps.
I am glad I went this route!

Paul

Re: 8" LCD GPS Deck

Hey Orange,

Not bad a price, I would think the factory nav unit goes for more? Plus alot better functions on the Alpine I agree it looks great and fits the space well!

With the newer vehicles and larger screens these days (ex: 8"-8.4" in the dodges) I would think the aftermarket manufacturers will eventually increase their screen sizes aswell and in a few years the 8" double dins will be more common.

I couldn't find any other 8" double dins other than the alpine. Looks like its time for me to start saving...lolz

Re: 8" LCD GPS Deck

I have been thinking about getting this exact same unit. I saw it the other day when searching and comparing units at Crutchfield. I and other friends have owned other Alpine products (flip-out tvs, subs, amps, etc.) in other cars over the years and I feel that they make the best automotive audio products out there.

Re: 8" LCD GPS Deck

I know they make an 8" screen for the CRV's, but never found one for the Ridgeline!

http://www.ebay.com/itm/8-HONDA-CRV-...#ht_237wt_1211 Nice thing about these ones is they come with the faceplate built in, so it looks stock!

Just looked this up for my 2009 and it states on the web page that it is not compatible.

Re: 8" LCD GPS Deck

What make is the double din did you use? I know for sure the metra version can't hold 8" screens without cutting or fabricating it.
