    Need help picking a Deck that works with MP3 Players

    Ok I'm in the market for a headunit and I'm trying to find out what options are out there with an AUX input in the front on deck so I can hookup my current baby(Sansa e270) or any others that I may get in the future. Probably would like to keep it under 200 if possible.

    Get one with aux-in on the back, just use a 3foot extension to run it through the dash to wherever you'll have the mp3 player...slim pickings if you require front aux-in...

    I know the AUX would work for my MP3 player but I was under the impression that the USB interface on all decks are made to interact exclusively with ipods.

    That impression would be incorrect.

    So do the decks actually read the mp3 players as an mp3 player or just like a small hard drive.

    The x890 looks like a nice deck. Any one know if new decks are coming out that offer headunit controls for players outside of ipods?
