    blkwrx, i think ricecrispy210 was looking for an informative response like compnut21 supplied. Your reply offered no value. Sometimes searching results in 2 or more hours of data review and headaches. There are some threads in the forums that exceed 50 pages. Some people enjoy passing on the lessons of their labors to others. Remember that part of searching is asking. I hope I am not alienating myself in the forums because I will be leaning on many of you in reaching my goal of an ultimate carputer.

    jeffreyd_tx: Please read this entry: FAQ: What is Spoon Feeding

    The OP's question also screams of doing aboslutely no research. Not to mention the fact that his question has little, if anything possible to do with the actual idea of putting a CarPC into his car. If that's what the aux-in for, then fine, but in context, he is simply looking for car audio advice.

    This is also one of those questions that has been answered in many ways, many times. If the OP had a few models with specific questions about why A is different than B or which one has an easier to use interface, that would also be acceptable to me.

    In any case, blkwrx was being quite nice compared to some of us.

    the 2006 alpine head units have a feature called full speed, its a faster ipod interface than previous modles, it allows you control you ipod from the head unit, it takes a few uses to get used to it, but it really does work well and is pretty quick, (some times easier then using the touch wheel itself, i've always prefered the click nob over the touch wheel) then if the head unit does not come with a seporate aux in, you can use the apline AI-net (used for connecting tons of different alpine accesories) and an AI-net to R/L stereo rca (http://www.caraudiodiscount.com/acatalog/kca-121b.jpgor any of the above mentioned alpine accesories) to connect your car pc ... there are plenty of ways to do this .. this is just how i have done mine ... good luck hope this gives you some information

    eh didnt really mean for this to be an alpine add, but im kinda an alpine headunit whore

    My response held plenty of value based on question posted. The OP asked for 2 things for a HU... iPod integration and aux out but didn't give any criteria for price or any other features which leaves about a gazillion HU meeting his description. Alpine was the first to offer iPod integration so I told him to start there. I can't tell him what HU to run out and get because his criteria is too broad.

    Jahntassa - I thought I was being nice too

    Personally I am partial to Eclipse HU's which also now have iPod integration but Alpine was the first to offer it. Like I said without a price range its really hard to give HU advice. The Eclipse units with iPod integration start at $250 and go to $650. I don't know about the Alpine units. The Eclipse CD3000 meets the OP's 2 requirements.

    Now I'm being really nice

    btw jeffreyd_tx, spend a bit more time around here and you will understand why some people get slightly irritated at questions like this.
