New Head Unit, Clarion or Pioneer?

I'm looking to pick up a new head unit for obvious reasons. I'd like a nice large touch screen and GPS navigation. The two models I'm looking at are:

Clarion NX702 Clarion NX702
Pioneer AVIC-Z150BH Pioneer AVIC-Z150BH

Those, and their similar slightly older models. Does anyone have experience with either of these? Which would you recommend?

I'm open to other suggestions too, and I'm not against putting a version of Android on which ever HU I get if that's the better way to go.

Thanks for any help!

I had an NX702 in my 350z and have zero complaints! The UI is very intuitive and not laggy at all like others I've seen. I actually plan to buy another one for my Rex when I consider buying a new HU in the near future. People always say good things about Pioneer as well but I'm personally not a fan of their UI and equalizer options. Their quality is certainly nothing to talk bad about though...

Search for Eclectic Mart on Amazon. They have the NX702 for $628 new over the vendor you linked. I've obviously been looking at pricing lol!

1,120$ price difference?:eek: Are you kidding me?: The Pioneer better be better!

Oops, comma in the wrong place and one too many zeros. Still a huge price gap!

All right, where is the distributor cap? I need to find the #1 plug wire to hook up my SUN machine.

I'll retract my statement as I don't wanna give a new member a bad taste about this forum. Sorry to hijack your thread OP. good luck with the HU purchase.

I don't think it's Mosc. I had a post yesterday or Monday that is missing as well. Alerted Admin about it.
