I can do most of these things with other headunits, but it is hard to do them cheaply and nothing will do all of them.
To each his/her own. I'm not feeling it at all....
Maybe in the year 2090 or so.. I have a technology breakthru for you on the iPod. Make some playlists, you wouldn't browse that much storage on a large PC screen while driving either..
I always laugh when people brag about their XXX hundred gb of music because I have a hard time thinking anyone is more organized with their ipod collection than I am. And I have maybe 20-30 gb of music. everything is organized, rated/sorted/appropriate artist etc...
40,000 songs (approx 160gb ) ???
That's ridiculous(bad ridiculous) amount of music considering most listen to about 10% of that. I think you aint' gonna manage that ANYWHERE, ANYTIME.. and that is the truth.
regarding the Zune, technically it is compatible with any HU that has red/white RCA... in fact you can get video out of it too(if video input yellow rca) because I have personally done that as well. Downside is you must control via the device not HU though, so you'd have to start A PLAYLIST then just drive.
Anyways, you can see what I think about it
The only thing kind of cool about the pros of the pc might be the obdii interface ( which is cool maybe ONCE when you NEED IT, also cool is updateable GPS.
Lol, but you ain't gonna check your hotmail while driving either
goodluck OP, losocee I think your logic is flawed....
OP--> think about how you will REALLY use your vehicle....
