Anyone know when this will likely be released? I will probably be buying a HU, and the interface on this looks nice. Hopefully within about the next 4-6 weeks?

How much are you guys paying who have already ordered one? I am most likely going to go with a used W200/W205 because of budget, but am curious on the going rate of the W505.

I bought mine from CF for $1k. You can get them on e-bay for about $850+. I felt the extra $100 was worth the authorized purchase.

It doesn't have great eq alone. He's got it paired with the h701 processor. ;)

some form. Though, I think we'll have to wait for Alpine to release the cable...

What do you mean? Alpine tech support told me it has an optical output.

As soon as I sell my W205, I'm buying this unit.

It does have optical output, but requires a new cable that has a 4-pin connection on one end (for the w505) and toslink on the other (for the h701).

Cable is kwe-610a, IIRC.

No kidding? Interesting.

EDIT: Yep, I just spoke with them again. KWE-601a. They will be around $100 and they "should" be available next month. What a crock!

One more thing - does the PAC-TR7 work with this unit? I know Alpine is very intent on defeating video (and some other on-screen features) while driving.

I'll find out in about a week. Mine is on the way as we speak.

Lets hurry up UPS.

the 205 is part of the 2008 line just like the 505. They won't go 'on sale', but I bet you can find a few used now... ;)

I just Installed the IVA-W505 in my Expedition. I used the PAC SWI-JACK to keep my steering wheel controls. It works great ( just a little delay compared to stock radio). I am trying to use the PAC TR-7 to bypass the Parking brake routine. I wired it according to PAC website. Its also programmed to the correct feture. Can anyone tell me why its not working. I have a brand new Head unit that I haven't seen play a DVD Yet! and I can't set the clock either (this also requires the vehicle to be parked)!?!?

If you haven't already, I would recheck your programming. The TR-7 comes from the factory with the Alpine bypass scheme, so an initial programming should not have been necessary. That said, you may have undone the factory settings when you installed the unit.
