Default How good is 7 Inch DVD/VCD/CD TV GPS Bluetooth ?

Saw this posting in T-Bhp market section.
Team-BHP Classifieds - 7 Inch Dual Zone Car DVD/VCD/CD TV GPS Bluetooth - Powered by PhotoPost Classifieds

I am very interested in a product like this. And Since its 17k, fits my budget for my Innova. I am never in favour of these LCD Monitors hanging from the roof of cars. I can get couple of monitors on the head rest and it would be a great looking setup. I am not looking for great sound quality, but good enough for a nice hearing.

I mailed the contact given in the listing, and also i had some doubts about the GPS.

Pls help me out with this. How good are these products? Worth putting money on them?

Way too expensive dude. Am sure this is chinese stuff. I picked up a similar(much beeter actually) one from the U.S for about 13 grand + 1.5 grand for 3 years warranty. If you have people coming down from the U.S. pick it up from there. BTW go for Jensen which is cheaper and works fine if budget is a constraint. Else go for one of the alpines/kenwoods/jvc's etc.

I have also been looking for a similar all-in-one
(Audio, Video,GPS, Reverse parking camera input) 2DIN Unit.

Sure, this one is chinese stuff and if you look into ebay-in, it is going to be shipped from a seller in China. Also a note therein states:

"This model is compatible with most brands of GPS software - however hardware specific software such as Garmin may not run on this unit. We provide the GPS-enabled hardware only, not the software. We provides no warranty or customer support regarding GPS software. We cannot provide downloads / links / advice regarding GPS software. Any software installation you undertake should be performed or supervised by a professional."

A "no no" for me. As suggested by dude redsfx, it is better to go in for a known, branded HU with warranty for all its functions, GPS included.

I think, i shall go around looking in GP Road, and maybe find something there.

I have had bad experience with e-bay, so that is why I was thinking about it so much. Hopefully, i would find something in GP Road or maybe even Ritche street.
