    I'm looking for a double din radio/entertainment system for my 2016 Duacto, we had the van radio prepped to give us the choice of unit rather than taking the one that came with it.

    I have looked at a few and not sure what one so recommendations welcome, I'm not bothered if it has Sat Nav, would like it to have hands free for phone and possibly Apple car play as we both have IPhones.

    Price range well I am Scottish so ideally below £300 but willing to go to £400 for a good one :)

    Well - you get what you pay for - I would also recommend the pioneer - have a look at the Pioneer AVIC- F970DAB-C 6.2" DVD Sat Nav for Motorhomes and HGV which is a hands free for iphone etc etc. Its got a digital receiver as well as FM. Your looking at £650 - £850 depending on where you get it.

    I fitted one of these - http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/152042850339 - and I'm very happy with it, but my needs are simple. Chose it because I didn't want to spend too much and Kenwood was a name I recognised.

    How long are you keeping your van? I never have incorporated sat nav would rather have a separate screen. Also if you keep your van a while sat nav goes out of date and not as straight forward to update/replace as say tom tom etc. Also you can't whip it into another vehicle (sat nav bit).
