The other day my car was broken into and my head unit was stolen. It was a Pioneer DEH-8600MP that I had for a few years that I really liked. I had the IPod adapter also installed for the unit. They do not sell this unit anymore but I want something about the same that will work with the pioneer adapter or will be Ipod capable. Whats good these days? I'm open to other brands as well.

well the pioneer 880PRS is the SQ deck right now. Lots of turning feature and you can run active with it. If the ipod adapter is the ib-100 thingy it should work also. Check that out.

I think the comparable alpine one is 9887.

ok i've narrowed it down to these:

CDA-9887 or CDA-9886


As far as the features I am concerned with:
1. An easy, quick IPod interface is very important. My old 8600 need the adapter since it was too old and the interface ******. It took forever to scroll through artists and songs. I'm told the 9800BT also needs the adapter, so it will probably be the same way. If there is anything out there that I can pick songs right from the iPod instead of using an interface on the head unit, I would actually prefer that.
2. Good sound quality.
3. Nice display
4. Bluetooth is a cool feature but not really that important to me I have to sacrifice any of the above to have it.
5. Sattelite radio not important to me at all cus i will never use it.

Also feel free to suggest anything you guys might have that you like. Thanks

If your car was broken into, you better buy a better alarm for your car. Get the shyt where sirens go off inside of your car...I dont know anyone who is willing to withstand that sound while stealing your equipment.
