4300 includes a remote, allows playback of MPEG's, SVCD's, VCD's, and is updated for newer iphones/ipods.

Incorrect. The 4200 has 4v preouts as well. Compare them side by side on sonicelectronix and it shows the differences. I posted them above.

Since they are the same price theres really no reason to NOT go with the 4300.

I picked up a 4200 last month but haven't even installed it yet. :( Had I known a new one was coming out a month later I would have waited. Oh well. I don't own an ipod or iphone so there's really no difference for me. Plus I paid $350 for my 4200. :)

Well since were discussing things do you think this will work? I have a htc smartphone and was going to buy this
HTC 73H00348-00M AV Cable (http://www.google.com/products/catalog?rlz=1T4TSHB_enUS277US277&q=htc+incredible+video+out+cable&um=1&ie=UTF-8&cid=14625659295469813744&ei=12ZZTZf2LIOKlwfIpuyQBw&sa=X&oi=product_catalog_result&ct=result&resnum=3&ved=0CD8Q8wIwAg#)

and use my phones gps to show it on the avh4300dvd screen instead should that work

So pandora is junk or are you asking?

the htc thing should work alright, there are better services than pandora and you can only use it when you have 3g service, even then it lags sometimes. where im from service is spotty so driving and trying to listen to internet radio would be a waste of time

oh okay gotcha lol Yeah I figured that cable would be better then buying the pioneer navigation add on 300$ for that is too much

I was wondering about the differences too- my 4300 should be delivered by the end of today.

Guys with the 4300, does it play avi??? I've read so many yes's and no's. :confused:

does the 4300 have the demo where it automatically starts scrolling through random pictures like a screensaver when you don't touch it for a while?
if so, can you put your own pictures in there to scroll through?

IVe had one for months and haven't seen any such screensaver option (which would be sick) does anyone know why mine won't play iPod video for me, does my parking break bypass effect it?
