Bigdaddy - do you have an after market head unit that your trying to connect all that stuff to?

RedsLBZ - I am biased towards alpine. I would have preferred to kept my Alpine 505 from my old vehicle due to having the matching sound processor. I had the Alp w200, w205, then 505 over 4/5 years. Loved all of them. But like I said the product gap is alot smaller now. My pioneer cost under $400 and is faster than my 505 was. And provides me the bare essentials like I need. If I wanted Nav or Bluetooth then I would have gotten the Alpine 900 series for sure

I have an Alipne INA-W910 love it and works great and really easy to use and does everything bluetooth, nav, backup camera, xm, Pandora from my iphone. I had a Kenwood 7" touchscreen I can't remember the model number it was ok but I still go with the Alpine even with the price different. I have been running Alpine headunits for the past 14 years and never had issue with any of them. I still have one that is about 10 years old and still working like the first day I put it in.
