hope someone has done the app radio. I was considering the app radio vs a few different $400ish kenwood/pioneer double dins. in the end, most of the review weren't so hot on the app radio, although the idea seems bad ass (which led to some thread on here about people modifying their dash to mount ipads).

I'd say the install is about the same, but I would lean toward a more traditional head unit, most of them will stream any media from your phone anyway, and with attachments can even stream the maps...

I have the appradio 2 and love it. It mounted nicely, and looks really good on the truck. It works good enough, my only complaint is with some apps it takes a couple updated to the app before it works seamlessly. I mostly use Rdio in the truck, and it works awesome except the screen is bright and theres no dimmer and the only option night time is to turn the screen off which is 2 clicks away. Using an ipod it's fine at nighttime and not too bright. Using the fm or am radio, or ipod the radio is awesome and only starts to slow down when using some apps. I recommend it to all my friends.
