    For those of you who are using this headunit I was hoping to get your thoughts on it. Mine shows up today and goes in tomorrow and Im having some reservations. Not so much on the unit itself, just whether I actually want a DVD unit instead, or just stay stock and get a USASpec ipod adapter, etc.

    My scosche panel showed up (and the Metra is coming with the HU so I can compare) and Im just not impressed with the look and color matching, and I already had my reservations about putting in a single din HU as I think most of them appear cheap and cheesy. I decided on the CDA-105 as it had 90% of the functions I wanted, great reviews, and budget friendly.


    • Did you find the unit gave you a drastic improvement in sound quality over stock?
    • Do you feel the unit "fits" into the gauge scheme of the Tacoma colorwise etc?
    • What are your opinions of the unit after having it for awhile now?
    • Hows the iPod functionality (I listen to the iPod 99% of the time)
    • Any pictures would be GREATLY appreciated.
    Many thanks!

    I think you can watch them in HiDef for better video quality
