    Im seriously considering the 4200 plus the bluetooth adapter. I know its a fairly new system, but was curious if anyone had it yet and had any thoughts. Pictures would be awesome as well.

    I also wouldnt mind hearing from you if you have the 4100DVD as well as pics etc.

    Thanks!

    So I guess the Alpine you recently installed isn't cutting it?

    Its cutting it for a single din. There are a few annoyances though, but it seems they are fairly common throughout most single dins. Id like to go with something with a bigger screen, different iPod control, DVD etc.

    I have the 4100 in my Wife's Suburban. It is a fantastic deck.
    I have the Eclipse AVN726 in my Tacoma and it's good too.

    The Pioneer has the Eclipse beat hands down with their user interface...... If the Pioneer had Navigation in this model, I'd have it in my Taco. The only reason that I got the Eclipse is for nav, which is nice on the Eclipse.

    I have the 4200 dvd and will be getting the 4200BL as soon as my audio shop gets one in. Im just going to swap them out. They are on back order right now. I love this deck. I have only ever had single dins by alpine and swear by them, but i wanted to try the double din thing and this deck is pretty sweet. I bought a 16Gb SD card and put all my music i own on it and it reads everything just fine.

    It normally shows the music title and all, just some songs depending on how and where u got the music dont show up right. i have no clue what that website in this pic is, something encoded in the song.

    Do you mean the 3200 and 3200BT? I think thats the 3200 series in your picture, and there isnt a 4200BT or BL.

    Yeah man sorry. It's the 3200 I just got excited when I read this topic. I looked over the model number yall were talking bout. But I still like it a lot.

    ive been looking for a double din and have done alot of research. i am going to get the avh-p4200dvd as soon as a store has one, everyone has it on back order. not only does it have alot of cool features, its bluetooth and gps ready that sold it for me and it only around 5 bills. theres a video on youtube of a guy giving a demo and its installed in a tacoma it looks badass

    I have the 4200. I really like it. I just did the relay mod last night and it works like a charm. The only thing i have to complain about is that when i have my iPhone plugged in, the album art comes up blurry. Anybody have this issue too?

    Im running mine with an iPod classic, and the artwork looks great. Ive read this to be a weakness with many of the DVD units out there, being that artwork off an iphone or touch is poor quality. Not sure why those ones specifically though. If you watch the 4200dvd videos on youtube the guy talks about it.
