    New Head Unit to Control iPod?

    Alright, I already ordered a Pioneer P680MP Head unit but I have to buy another $100 control box to run the ipod from the HU and I hear nothing but bad reviews about the interface. I am planning on cancelling that order ASAP. Now, my problem is I need to find a HU that will run the ipod from the HU and Alpine seems to have the best interface. I would like to get a CD player with blue LEDs since I have converted the rest of the lights in my 01 impala to blue LEDs. I would like to get the HU for around $300 and I plan on snagging one off ebay. Let me know what you guys think!

    Oh, and with Alpine do I need to purchase another expensive cable like pioneer or does it come with it?

    my vote is the clarion VRX765VD. because you can controle the ipod right on the screen of the unit.

    no but you control and have all the options as if you were using your ipod...and the new alpine stuff has the high speed ipod cable..t is instant and much better then the older

    I dont really want to spend $800 on the clarion...unless it has comparable sound quality to the Alpine decks...then, I would seriously think about it

    Re: New Head Unit to Control iPod?

    I would like to look at a comparison chart between the two or at least get a few other peoples opinions.

    And as for Alpine, I hear the glide touch feature ***** which is all the new models. If someone could tell me what glide touch is and does, that would be great. Oh, and if I went with a 9835, would I be able to use a high speed ipod cable? How much does the high speed ipod cable help?

    What is the best HU for use with an ipod with no regards for price?
