doube din needed, any recomendations?

My brother is looking for a new double din (new to him, I dont think he will mind used ones).. His budget is $200 for just a deck (he said he can get something that he likes for $200-I was surprised myself) and $500 for one with GPS build in to it.... anyone have one that they will recommend withing the given price range? (I myself don't know squat about double dins, so i dont even know if he is really cheaping out here...)... Thanks in advance...

the title suppose to say "double" and "recommendations" lol.... can't edit now... to late, I will accept looking like an idiot :]

Not to hijack your thread or anything...think of it as a free bump.

I am looking for a decent double din around the $200 mark as well. I dont need DVD or Nav (although i would take them if available for that price). My only caveat is that I want a 3 sets of preouts (front, back and sub).

Any suggestions?
