Pioneer all day long! Check out the avh 4400. I personally have the 8400, but the 4400 is still a sweet unit, and very affordable. You can find it for around $400ish new. Once you add the dash kit, wire harness, and iPod cable, youll be right around $500 out the door.

Hookup on back. They have lower models that allow for front connection. Personally I like the larger screen and more clean look. Don't like wires showing. But if that's what you are looking for, they ha e plenty of models out that do that for way under your budget. They just released the 2013 line-up so I'm not too familiar with them yet, but so far they seem identical as the 2012 models but with new model numbers. I actually prefer the 12's over the 13's and the 12's are probably cheaper now.

I am wanting to put a pioneer in my wifes 2012 and she just switched to the android phone so does any of the pioneer screens work with the android phones. She wants to be able to watch netflix and control her Samsung galaxy 3 with the head unit.
