  1. Great post. I especially found the video to be very useful. I just wanted to point out that there are kits out there that will connect to your factory car stereo and allow full control of your iPod or iPhone through the vehicles factory head unit. A great option for those who don’t want to devalue their vehicle by removing stock parts.

  2. I guess the feed on your You Tube video is down. I wanted to see how this deck performs. Well, just reading the features you listed it sounds like a great deck. What is the average price of one of these? Doesn’t look to expensive.
