Double Din Upgrade, Which HU?

I finally decided to go ahead and start modding. I'm going to start with audio and the HU is on the top of my list. I'm looking for a good Double Din unit with navi (my phone has good navi but its annoying), back- up camera ready, Bluetooth audio and hands free calling. These are the units that I have found so far. If anyone has any experience with any of these or has a better suggestion let me know, thanks!
JVC KWNT800HDT $809.77
Kenwood Excelon DNX9990HD $1329.99
Pioneer AVIC-Z140BH $859.99
Prices are from amazon.

Alpine INA-W910? I found it on Amazon for $1124.99. What do you think about that one or is there another one that I should consider?

I have that one in my e39 5 series and I love it. But you got to get the add on if you want the fill experience. The kenwood one pretty much is loaded with everything but at a cheaper price. Plus not to mention Garmin Navigation which is considered the best.

But you can not beat Alpine quality. With Alpine it just works. I have done countless updated to my ipod and every time I plug that into my alpine it works. My buddy has a Pioneer double din and I can not say the same about him.

Kenwood though is amazing bang for value. I do not think I have seen any other head unit come packed with so much stuff as such a great price. You really can not go wrong with this head unit.

My buddy has a JVC unit in his e30 318i and man is that thing rock solid too. What I like about JVC is that you can load up and play Lossless music files and if you are a audio-file you will enjoy that option very much.

I can go on and on, but you have to choose which one is best for your needs and budget.

I'll look at a few reviews and videos to see if the Kenwood or Alpine are worth the extra cash or not.
