Allright so my buddy wants a new headunit since his car got broken into.

The only feature he really wants is to be able to connect his iphone to his deck and play his wak *** music.

His budget is 300 but its pretty much the cheaper the better. Hes also willing to buy used so if you got somthing for sale lemme know

Thanks alot fellas

all the kenwood ipod adapters work. I have the KCA-ip500 in my car. my friend has an excelon X492 and i hook it up via usb to the front. I think all the headunits can play off the iphone now.

Anyone ever used this unit?

Got anything he might wanna know before he pulls the trigger on it?

the x305 is the only hu that alpine makes that they guarantee will work with the iphone 3g. some x100 units will work with it but not all, and alpine cannot provide any reason.

kenwood excelon units, awesome units, a 492(msrp 180) or better yet a kdcx692(240) or 792(330), u can find them cheaper off the net, the 6 and 7 have super easy to use ipod search

if he can wait, they have the new KDCX693 coming out whihc looks bad ***, they advertise them as iphone ready but pretty much iphone will work with all units

iphone will not transfer music over bluetooth so dont look into that feature to much

that is the whole point of the ida line - digital media heads to use with ipods / iphones.
