    great find, great price

    however, i still feel that the technology is way behind what we're achieving on this forum. For one, i can get a full blown computer under 1000k and it will do much more than the unit can.....

    it still a great find - one of the advantages is the easy setup and use....

    If you can't get a computer that will do more than that for under $1,000,000 (1000k) then something is wrong! Even $10k should be more than enough!

    My tablet still kicks it's *** and I don't have to worry about my car being broken into because there's a cool gadget in it!

    My tablet + docking station cost me $600 - about half of what that unit probably costs - plus my tablet does a ton of other stuff.
    - sh00k
    Duct tape and a Bandana for the win, b!shes!!!

    My Setup:http://www.mp3car.com/vbulletin/show-off-your-project/73500-06-scion-xb-tablet-in-the-box.html

    Cost so far: Less than a grand ;]

    when they get smart enough to add web browsing to these mm heads, the need for a carpc will go way down.... it's probably only a matter of time, I mean even the psp can browse, these can't be far behind....

    I love my alpine mm head, & it almost does enough to not need the pc, but internet is the biggest thing missing.... & a basic need I would say

    Thats still a great deal, I dont care what anyone says....

    Yes, Ill agree with the fact that you cant compare it with our setups and our carputers, but thats not really a fair comparison. This, for being a head unit, looks great and looks like it has a decent amount of features.... I really like the Video part of the iPod interface... That sounds neat. And Divx off of CD-Rs? Come on guys, thats pretty cool

    Bigest thing is ease for the customer, im excited for when the place i work at starts carrying these.

    However, has anyone seen the AVIC Z1? Much more impressive unit...Many more features.

    Also, i cant see any company making a MM in-dash system putting internet access on it, they are working very hard to make it so you cant watch video, let alone search the web while you drive
