Mud Console Upgrade

I'm finally getting ready to put the mud UK dash in my defender, but now I can't decide what kind of head unit I want to go in that thing. Do any of y'all happen to have a preference ? Remember - unit has to be a double din. if you have done this yourself i would love pictures as well.

Old pic, have since upgraded radio to a 7 inch screen....AVH-X8500BHS running AppRadio Unchained on Note 3, mirrors my cell phone on the screen.

JD there is a long dedicated thread to pics of these if you search around. Tons of pics of different radios installed, etc. I believe. Best of luck!

Winn- I have to ask. How did you get the Pioneer head unit to fit? I cut away an area behind my MUDD console to accommodate a double din but didn't have enough depth for the app radio 3. The unit would've stuck out of the console by at least an inch. I still have it new in the box but started doing an iPad head unit, because I thought the AppRadio option was not possible.

I've had a AVIC-700 and now have the AVH-X8500BHS, both fit with no problem. Went with the AVH-X8500BHS instead of the AppRadio 3 because I travel in places that have sketchy cell signals, and the AR3 doesn't have the provision to add satellite radio. Changed from iphone to android at the same time, and using the modded AppRadio app I can completely mirror my phone on the screen.

Not a great pic, weird angle makes everything look crooked.......small device to left of pod is a bluetooth GPS unit, only bad thing about using the AVH-X8500BHS . For some reason, the phone's GPS all but goes away when mirrored to unit. AR3 has a built in GPS because of this. I also run Tasker, which cranks up all the apps needed automatically when it senses the HDMI cable is plugged in.

Pretty cool setup with all the driving I do....texts and emails are read out loud through the stereo.....wife frowns at being able to watch youtube videos while driving though....

i see also you have power windows. how are those working for you? difficult to install? remember the brand? seem to be so many really inexpensive ones out there and then a few ridiculously expensive but nothing in the middle. be interested in know your experiences with them.
