Default New GPS recommendation for 03 Cigarette Gladiator

Having a new head unit, amp, and 12" sub installed in my 03 Gladiator. Would like to upgrade GPS to larger, in-dash unit. Any recommendations on new units that fit best?

What head unit are you going with? Some of them (like Fusion) have nice integrations with different GPS units.

I went with a Garmin, flush mount and touch screen. Slightly larger and much nicer.

Hey Brian,

The shop recommended this JL Audio head unit which should marry well with the existing and new equipment.
JL Audi MM100s-BE

Haven't looked at GPS integration with the head unit. Would this only be beneficial if I also integrated a VHF with the GPS and head unit?

Garmin actually owns Fusion so they play extremely well together. All the audio controls are available on the GPS touch screen.
