Hi,
I installed a Pioneer AVH 2500 NEX about a year ago in 2004 Bird and have been very pleased with the results. Nice size display, lots of features including, DVD player, HD radio, Apple Carplay, voice recognition, touch screen, phone, Bluetooth, hooks up to steering wheel controls and lots more. It a little over your budget but then you get what you pay for. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07P2Z8P5S/?tag=thunderbirdforum-20

Hi @George C , Can you send a photo of this unit as it looks mounted in your T-Bird? I would like to see how well it fits and looks once installed. Thanks!

Hi Joe,
The car is stored offsite for the winter so I cant send you an actual picture, but the installed look is very similar to the Alpine unit shown above but with the menu buttons on the left side. I rarely use the control buttons on the unit and can do ,most actions with the steering wheel controls or with the touch screen, or on my phone via the Bluetooth connection which works very well. Unless you are VERY handy, I would recommend professional installation for the best results.
Hope this helps

Thanks George. Yeah, I would have it professionally installed. If I tried it myself, I would most likely regret it. Have a great Christmas!
