Personally i like the colored pencil nav. Its very easy to read and thats the point I thought. In Japan pioneer has actually caught alot of gripes about their navigatin screens. I still like them both for different reasons . But i would have to say the kenwood is little more user friendly. Avic is more High tech with gadgets.ecrawford said:If you like looking at navigation that looks like someone drew it with colored pencils than the 7100 is great. Avic has an available USB adaptor also and already load with twice as many POI's as the Kenwood.
