Question Looking to buy a in dash Backup Camera and GPS

I am looking to buy a combo in Dash color Backup Camera and Receiver unit with built in DVD, GPS Nav system, Radio, to replace my B & W in dash monitor. Ebay and Amazon have several models from $125 to $600. Has anyone in the forum done this. What unit did you buy and what was the cost? did you install it yourself? Was the unit Blue tooth, wired, or wireless? Any information appreciated.
Mel

mhbell: I am in the same boat so I can't help you that much.

But, I installed a wireless in my class c and won't do it again. Mine would pick up interference and have noise lines running through the display that were very distracting.

Amazon reviews will talk about that.

Thanks for the reply. I kind of thought that might be the case with wireless. I have a backup camera already that is B & W and installed in the dash. I want a color combo with GPS Nav and all the Bells and whistles. I plan on using the present wires, so won't go wireless or Bluetooth. I am a DIYer and will be installing it myself. Just wondering if others have done it, and what unit they bought..

I really Don't know I would like to use the present camera if possible, but dont know if it would work with a color monitor. Maybe someone who knows will chime in.

Have the Jensen 212T in mine w/o nav. Understand they have a newer model with nav. The biggest issue I have with it is glare on the screen just due to the way it mounts in the dash.
