Default Help with factory base to factory nav

Hello I have been doing research on upgrading my head unit I have found a factory head unit on ebay

http://www.ebay.com/itm/2006-08-Dodg...item27c12bdc1e

It is suppose to fit right in plug and play in my 06 ram. Does anybody have experince with these units? How is the sound quality? how does the GPS work?

That's not a factory GPS unit. They look a LOT different than that item.

Was a new thread really needed? Everyone was helpful in the last one. It's clutter like this that isn't needed in the forums and makes it harder for new guys like yourself to find answers to questions that have been asked many times.

As for your questions. That is not a factory head unit. This is

http://www.ebay.com/itm/2009-2008-20...item1e6a99e985

And if your okay with an aftermarket company, like the one you posted, get it from a reputable brand such as these.

If you want to use your current dash and just get a dash kit you could get a single din unit like this.

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Kenwood-KVT-...item20c2532bb3

Or you could get this

http://www.ebay.com/itm/DODGE-RAM-GP...item4cfe50393c

Then a head unit like this

http://www.ebay.com/itm/AVN726E-ECLI...efaultDomain_0

or this

http://www.ebay.com/itm/KENWOOD-EXCE...item4162206015


Of course these are just ideas.

Well Victor another post was nessecary as I had another question and yes keeping seperate post for seperate topics will help new guys like me find information quicker than trying to read every little pea brain comment you tend to leave. I know you have nothing else to do than hijack post with your useless info. I have installed car stereo for years and know better than to put a referb kenwood into anyting especially one with a motorized face.

I want to replace the factory head unit in my truck with a OEM nav unit.
I know I will have to replace the factory bezel. I thought that the one in the ebay listing was a factory unit, I now see its not. THANK YOU to the guys who where kinda enough to point this out and even more thanks to the guy who included the link to where I may educate myself on the matter further. This is the way a forum is suppose to work. WOW imagine that
