Default Radio recommendations?

Hi, i currently have a '98 4 door ls blazer and i wish to change the radio. it currently has this one installed (GMC Chevy Truck 1995 2002 Am FM Cassette Radio w Aux Input 3 5mm iPhone MP3 | eBay), but it's the version without the aux input, so i use a cassette aux adapter for my phone
I want to change it, since in bumpy roads the cassette will jump and the music will sound like a scratched cd

I'm primarily looking for a radio with an aux input (no cassette) that isn't to expensive ($100 or less) and easy to install

A secondary radio option would be a radio that has a screen that can be used as a gps, example: (

Just go to Walmart. All of their radios are cheap and they should all install the same way. You'll need a dash kit so it'll fit properly and a wiring harness so you aren't cutting the factory wires. All of that should be available at Walmart.

I agree with Jake, for your minimum requirements and the prices that wally world has on stuff you're just about as well off with them as you are anywhere else.

It doesn't matter where you go you're not going to get a touch screen NAV unit that will actually WORK and be worth purchasing for anywhere near your $100 budget. I've seen those cheapo units from China, like the one you linked, and they're not worth a flying **** at all.

yea dont waste your money on those cheap chinese touch screens or hu's all together. I had a jensen uv8 which is pretty reputable (sorta) brand. the touch screen hardly worked, lasted less than a year and would constantly give me problems. it was not worth it at all,

i recommend walmart as everyone says, or give a try. usually if you spend over a certain amount, you get everything included to install, wires and harness and usually antenna adpater for free. give it a look and read reviews

also there is always amazon lol
