I have a 2003 Lexus IS 300 and a few CDs have gotten stuck in the factory unit. I'm thinking of paying someone to extract the CDs and figured it would be a good time to get a new HU
I do have a few things I'd like the new unit to have but I have never ever bought a HU and would appreciate your suggestions on what to look for when comparing specs.
I searched this forum quite a bit, and got some ideas but I didnt come across anyone talking about HD radio. I listen a lot to the radio and I like the choice I get from my HD radio at home (and it's free!). So is there any reason (presumably apart from having a huge music collection) that HD isnt popular on this forum?
Apart from HD, I'd like it to be easy to use (intuitive navigation), reasonably big screen (4 lines?), ability to integrate with my iPhone or at least an iPod and good sound quality of course.
I saw from the poll that Pioneer and Alpine are the most popular by far on this forum so I'm leaning that way, but still open to other suggestions
I know my criteria are pretty basic but what I'm asking is what features should it have (or not have)? My budget is around 500.00 but it would be nice if I could get a good HU for less.
Thanks for your help!
