    MP3,DVD,Camera-Which headunit? Help!

    Hi guys,
    I'm hoping the experts can help me on this.
    I have a 2 DIN Toyota w/ seperate CD changer in the center console (all stock)

    I would like to have these features:
    -MP3 (iPod)
    -DVD (play MP3's and WMA's)
    Actually playing movies is not important to me
    -Control the factory CD changer
    - Rear View Camera that turns on when I put in Reverse

    I like it to look as close to stock as possible. Nothing flashy.

    Please give me some recommendations!
    I was looking at the JVC KD-AVX1 which looks pretty good for the money. It is 1DIN so I would have a pocket underneath or room for something else.

    The flip out screens like Jensen VM9410- I am a little suspect about because if you are backing up, do you have to wait for the screen to flip out? Also worried that the constant "in-out" of the big screen is just another thing that can break.

    Thanks for your help!

    I am sure you will probably get quite a few replies telling you to search for the answers cause 99.999999999% of all questions have already been asked so i figured id be the first hhaha j/k. The thing i dont quite get is do you want a carputer or just a dvd player with a screen for a reversing camera?

    I really don't know anything about car audio/video. I've searched rear cameras and it's all greek to me unfortunately, confusing.

    I am not looking for a computer system. I just need to play my iPod, cd's and I like the DVD because I can burn a ton of songs onto one disc.
    All that and rear camera mixed in would be perfect.

    What's your price range? I don't think any aftermarket will be able to control the factory changer without extensive modification.
