Which head unit?

I've been reading around a bit and trying to decide which head unit to replace the amazing stock system with...

Looking for something with a decent navigation system, DAB radio and a nice clear interface!

What I've seen so far that fits the bill is:

Pioneer AVIC-F950DAB
Kenwood DNX5230DAB

Anybody tried or got these units and can help me decide?

Thanks in advance!

I have the AVIC-F950BT it's the same unit with the same features (excluding digital radio) and I'm really happy with it. Don't know anything about the Kenwood though

The AC controls aren't part of the fascia that gets removed?

I'm not sure about the satnav but usually there is a better one on the DD you're installing I'm guessing.

Your climate temps will remain where they always have been. Any radio information will be replaced with the date or "Honda Civic" depending on which install option you take.
