I'll be putting mine in next week as well. Funny how my needs have changed since my last post. I'll be outsourcing all those needs to a processor now so I should be goodKind of an old thread but I got mine and it is going in next weekend with a ZED Leviathan, using all active crossovers and image dynamics CS-64's, in a two seater car with an MB Quart 10" sub. The price for the Eclipse was only $699
Yeah the one speaker Navi is odd. I was going to switch my RCA's because I had the same tweeter problem and then I just set my amp to only take a stereo 2 channel input and throw it over all 5 channels; works for now till I decide on a processor.Well the Eclipse is in as are all the other things, what a bear. The Eclipse is a sweet unit, it was the car that made it hard, we had to do some custom work to get it to fit in the dash. The Leviathan was no easier but is mounted on the back wall behind the driver seat and fits quite nicely. I can even get to all the controls so if it ever stops snowing I can set the system up with an RTA. I ran into one minor problem, the Eclipse Navi outputs through only one speaker, front left or right. With my system that is a tweeter. not very loud, but I can live without voice guidance or switch the RCA's so it outputs to the mid in the door, still not real happy with the lack of volume of the Navi, it mutes one speaker only. With the system on at all it gets lost. The Navi is insane, way more info and easier to use than my Garmin 660. I got the Sirius Traffic too, but haven't completely figured it out yet. The system sounds really good in such a small space, car is a Pontiac Solstice.
That is a very nice UI compared to the 6620. I really like the Bluetooth functionality and the ipod interface finally allows for quick searching!Yeah the one speaker Navi is odd.

Here is a quick video review I just did yesterday on the unit.
Not sure wat will happen with the map update, as Fujitsu 10, is pulling Eclipse to concentrate on the OEM market, they will certainly still have presence of some kind and they will be doing map updates for the OEM units. They have the 2010 map update DVD out but it is $369 WTF. I did send them an email about it, no answer yet but it's only been 1 day.That is a very nice UI compared to the 6620.

I still can't believe Eclipse can't figure out the audio output for NAV! I have the BT module on my 6620 and I had to hack it apart and install an LOC and electronic RCA switch to get to output to the amp on my front comps! The BT module add-on only sends output over the high-level outs of the deck!
If the 726e had full time-alignment and Active capabilities, it would be almost perfect.
