 Pioneer AVIC-Z120BT VS. Kenwood DNX-9960

So I've narrowed down my search for a new headunit to two of these choices, but I would still like some opinions. I will be ordering off of amazon and it seems that the Pioneer is about $200 cheaper. I've made a little list of criteria and how each of the HUs address it. Navigation: Garmin provides the nav for Kenwood and is clearly a winner in this case. I have a Garmin portable GPS right now and I love it, its accurate and very user-friendly. I am not sure how the navigation system in the Pioneer performs and according to my research on various sites it gets very mixed reviews in that sense. It does however have the AVIC feeds app which allows to directly transfer contacts from my iPhone to the system. Also you have to pay for 'MSN Direct' to get the real time traffic feature which in the Kenwood I believe is free. Sound Quality: both have a 50 watts x 4 built-in amp. So should it be the same? According to the reviews I've read some have pointed out that the Kenwood has better sound quality. User Interface: This is where I feel the Pioneer prevails. It's very customizable, visually appealing, and simple to use. Ipod control for me is VERY important. Features: both offer roughly the same, except the Pioneer has things like Pandora streaming (which is awesome), avic feeds, etc. However, Kenwood has the Navtec real time traffic which is a major bonus. Does anybody have any have any one of these HUs and if so would like to share their thoughts on them? Also, I am unsure about which one is faster to boot and function. edit: pioneer z120bt**** just realized that apparently any spacings I made between the criteria sections does not show up in the actual post :S
