I'm not a huge fan of Sony's HUs, but that looks like a pretty good unit. I just like the control schemes of Alpine/Pineer/Kenwood better... That one we were talking about or even that one if you REALLY need to play music through your bluetooth I thought that's what we buy ipods for?

I'm sorry, but from personal experience, all of Sony's products are garbage except for their Trinitron T.V.s, 3CCD cameras, and SOME of their laptops.

I've personally had a Sony head unit. It was the first one I ever got. Moving over to Alpine and Pioneer was a smart move. The controls and menu systems are much easier in the Alpines and Pioneers. If you are going to be using your Android phone, 90% of head units now come with a 3.5mm jack either on the front or rear. I am not going to be 100% sure with the iPhone OS 4 though. It should work as of now. Bluetooth audio streaming currently sucks and is not much better than listening to your MP3 player through an FM transmitter.

Spend $209 on an Alpine and you will be happy.
