Hey guys,

I come here because you guys are an aweseome help. I am looking for a double din touch screen and to behonest my head is spinning trying to read all of the reviews on what does what, what works, what doesnt etc. I would really appreicate a point in the right direction for the right features.

I am looking for:

Double Din, Touch screen
DVD Playback
Iphone compatibility (blue tooth),
I want to use Pandora, netflix, and other video/sound apps, from my iphone
Bluetooth calling

That is it. I am looking for the best. I have iphone 4s right now, but may get the 5 in the future.

What works the best.

Thank you!

most DVD double din these days will include iphone and bluetooth support.

Kenwood, Pioneer, Sony, and Alpine have a nice selection to choose from above $1,000.

imo look at:

Sony XAV-701HD (http://www.sonicelectronix.com/item_48481_Sony-XAV-701HD.html)
Pioneer AVH-X5500BHS (http://www.sonicelectronix.com/item_63977_Pioneer-AVH-X5500BHS.html)
Pioneer AVH-X8500BHS (http://www.sonicelectronix.com/item_66714_Pioneer-AVH-X8500BHS.html)
Kenwood DDX770 (http://www.sonicelectronix.com/item_65911_Kenwood-DDX770.html)

i personally have the x5500 in my truck and lit it. i do seem to like from what i see the sony interface a little better but couldn't pass up getting the x5500 from amazon for ~$360. as for the x8500 from what i have read is that it has a quicker feel to it as its faster and a few other things.
