In-dash AM/FM, CD, DVD, MP3, WMA player with GPS Navigation PLUS Bonus BT-E500 + iPC-106 • 7" TFT-LCD Touchscreen display • 50W x 4 Chan. Peak • 22W x 4 Chan. RMS • Internal crossover • 7-Band parametric EQ with 5 preset curves • Circle surround II
The Eclipse AVN52D is the AVN5510 but it was made for exclusive/premier installers only (thus the model difference). Eclipse premier dealers had a rough year due to the economy so they couldn't sell them at $1549.99 as planned. Because of that, Eclipse had overstock and we stepped up and bought the entire closeout from Eclipse. We could leave the price high at $999.99 and it would still be a deal, but here at Sonic Electronix we're all about passing the incredible savings to our loyal customers.
This combo is like NOTHING else on the market under $1200, let alone at $549.99! For example, the Pioneer Premier AVIC-F90BT is a nice unit and has Bluetooth and iPod, but it also has a smaller screen and cost more. The Kenwood DNX7120 and eXcelon DNX8120 are both nice as they have navigation, Bluetooth, and iPod connectivity, but it also costs over $600 more at $1199.99. Additionally, we have units from other brands, but all of those are only 6.5" screens, have inferior navigation, and a higher defective rate, including of course this Eclipse AVN52D. Additionally, the AVN52D comes with a 1-year warranty with an optional 3-year warranty if installed by an Eclipse dealer!
Another overlooked feature is the location of where the Eclipse AVN52D is manufactured... Japan. Unlike other Asian countries, the Japanese take manufacturing as seriously as Americans, which makes the quality far superior to other places such as Malaysia (where Kenwood is made), Indonesia (JVC), China (Pioneer Premier AVIC-F90BT, Panasonic, Clarion and practically any lower level brand name).
If you are searching for a Double DIN head unit that does it all, your search literally stops here. We have never had a deal like this and we quite honestly do not think another will come any time soon.

I love my unit
I think this unit is awesome. Navigation is so spot on. I figured out how to set the time.... Change the time zone in the navigating setup... Everything else was easy to figure out... Can't wait to buy some more add ons.

I bought this for my AVN-7000 because it said it was compatible. IT'S NOT. I mean, it works but trying to figure out how to change artists is a total pain. I have to go back and forth between settings for about 5 minutes before I can actually switch artists. Then I can only go one artist at a time and if you have LOTS of music on your iPod like I do it takes forever to get lower in the alphabet.

Parrot Eclipse CK3000 Evolution Review
The CK3000 exceeded my expectations. After installation it worked like a dream. The sound quality is good and I can operate the whole thing by voice command and never take my hands off the steering wheel.
Apparently the BT-500 was another part number for the CK3000 because it came with a Toyota wiring harness. I cut it off and attached it to my 2004 Saab 9-3. It wired right into my Electronic Head Unit so it automatically mutes the stereo and routes the sound through the front speakers. I can increase the volume with the controls built into the steering wheel. The control knob and buttons on the Parrot are so small they don't look gaudy on the dash and it blends in nicely.
I definitely would recommend this product.

Best on the market..
This product is ridiculous, especially at this price. Other DVD/NAVI combinations are averaging 200 dollars more than this sale price, and they are not half the product. Intuitive display, touch screen responds great, sound is loud and clean, navigation is amazing. The only downside is I cant figure out how to change the time... I guess Ill actually read the instructions.

I decided to integrate my iPod touch with my eclipse radio. Works pretty well except slowness on scrolling through windows. I wish you could use your ipod to scroll through songs/groups/genre sometimes vs using the touch screen. I would recommend this product.

Base model doesnt work with amps.
This is a base model product, it doent work good for a professional system, it doesnt work with amps. (No automatic mute for the sound with incoming calls) spend the extra money and buy a higher end model, the parrot system is good. Other than that it works great as long as you are not hooking up amps to the system.

This is a great product. We have used this product now for quite a while and really enjoy its features and ease of installation and use. The ability to use my i-Pod through the AVN6620 Nav unit is a real plus and the sound is incredible.

I recommend this deck , however the ipod functions are slow. The unit will not charge the ipod either. Bluetooth can not be used with amp set up....
ADMIN NOTE: Actually, it will charge an iPod with the correct iPod adapter, the Scosche PasspPORT IFWA adapter

Once you get used to all the options you can find your way around the system fairly easy. The navigation brings you right to the door steps of where your going, while listening to the tunes. The back-up camera is not only clear but in color, how cool is that. With a little help, you can play a DVD while driving (I dont know if this is legal so dont tell antbody I told). The Ipod set up is the best, it gives you several options on the play list such as purchased, favorite, artist, albums, or make your own menu for quick reference. The woofer control has so many options that I am still looking for a sound. This deck is well worth the price, well worth it!
