GO FOR IT !!!! nothing beats the fun sensation of driving your baby fr-s IN THE SUMMER BREEZE!!!
It's Bonjiovi, and yes, the inventor is a relative of Jon Bon Jovi(2nd cousin. Jon simplified his last name spelling for his career. Bonjiovi is the actual spelling of his last name) Bonjiovi Acoustics is his company, specializing in digital signal processing. See the link.

And since when is naming your invention or company after your last name gay? I'm assuming you're using "gay" in the place of "stupid" and not just homophobic.

With no wheel controls, I find the buttons on the stock unit (track next/prev) are easier to use than skittering over the touch screen and covering it with finger prints.

Even if the price was equal I'd probably stick with the stock unit. For 500$? Forget about it. You can get a superior Avic with nav for that much.

Stock has USB drive/ipod/bluetooth support, and it's actually a Pioneer as well so it's not like you're slumming it. 200W or so I think.

For $500 as a dealer-option, it's not bad. All factory or dealer options are priced higher.

And if I want to upgrade my head unit later, I won't have any problem reselling the Premium touchscreen unit, which can partly fund a new Nav-enabled unit.

If there are any members interested in upgrading their base unit to the touch screen unit, I do have one available. I recently changed it out for a navigation unit.
Send me a PM if anybody is interested.

I was given the upgraded at no cost, which at some point in the near future it will be ripped out and replaced

upgraded pinoeer and bonjovi too. love the modern look of the deck, but hate the speakers. you could add a bracket for the aftermarket double din just like the BRZ does, but yesterday I saw a BRZ in a Subaru show room and the pioneer deck is not even level.
