"Best all around in dash nav system I've seen."4.5 starson by kevintm1984
Pros: Map coverage, Speed of searching for address, great equalizer.
Cons: Didn't come with ipod cable. No Divx support (that I see)
Summary: I was debating between the avic-d3, the avic-z2, and this strada. The strada was the only one I was not able to find in stores therefore I had to order it online. The main reason why I didn't go with the avic-d3 or avic-z2 was because they did not have my street address in their database. But when I would go over to one the of the $300 garmins or even the TomTom. They would find my address with no problems. The street didn't even show that it exsisted on the z2. I've lived at my address for over 3 years so I found that very dissapointing. When I ordered my strada I didn't know if it was going to have my address or not so I was kinda worried. After I hooked everything up and it grabbed its gps signal (took about 1 min) It not only found my address and was right on, but the controls and functions are so intuative that I was able to make it my home very quickly. I haven't used the ipod feature yet but I did order the cable online today for around $40. You can not only control the ipod directly from the head unit, but also watch your podcasts and movies. The z2 has a feature where you can copy cds directly to the head unit. Honestly all my music is on the ipod. Why can't I just copy the cd at the computer and move it to the ipod. I didn't feel that I would use that "missing" feature that the strada does not have.
Oh this was very easy to install on my 2002 Subaru WRX. The wire adapter was $20 at my local bestbuy. It was not on the floor. I had to ask one of the car audio guys to get one for me. And the wire ends were $3 for 10 male and female ends at my local radio shack.
