Default GPS for 2006 CR-V

I would like to get a gps that would fix rather neatly in my CR-V. I
was think something that would fit in the slot just below the radio.
Hit me back with any ideas. Thanks

Get a Garmin that sits on the dash and don't futz with building it in. You
can then move it to other vehicles, and take it when you fly 'n rent-a-car.
Works great.

Agreed!

I have a Garmin 2610 with a 2gb CF card (let me load the whole US and
Canada) and I move it back and forth between my motorcycle and Accord as
well as take when I travel (in FL for a few days a month).

We bought a Garmin 2610. We use it both in our Accord Coupe and Our Maxima
Se.
It sits on either dash on a high friction beanbag like mount, works great.

PS Has saved my marriage any number of times.

I just bought a 2006 CRV and have been looking for that same answer.
Nothing will fit in that slot (I assume you are referring to the CD drawer?)
because its not full width. Crutchfield lists two self contained systems
that will fit in place of the factory radio (a Pioneer and an Eclipse).

My first thought was to try to reproduce the Alpine system that was OEM on
my 2000 Acura TL. I have never found a place that that system couldn't
route me to. It looks like you can do it by buying an Alpine DVD video
system and the NAV unit separately, but it costs the price of a good used
car and you have find an inconspicuous, yet accessible place to mount the
nav box.

The dealer where I bought the truck indicated that they had a unit that they
could install into the CRV, but I was hesitant to include any discussions
with them that would run up the price of the truck. I will probably go back
and ask them what unit they use.

There does not appear to be a built-in solution that doesn't involve
replacing the factory radio.
