    Jewdichop has it right ... I installed this unit last week as well and followed these instructions from Sound Man on Youtube ... Works flawlessly! Go pick up a 12V relay from Radio Shack (cost was 7.99) and it took me about 5 mins to hook the wires in.

    PM me if you need specifics, but all I did was follow this video. Good luck!

    The 4300 is the new model that can stream pandora from an iphone. There are no other differences that I'm aware of. My 4300 is supposed to show up today. :)

    See post 12 here for some 4300 comments. Not 4200 vs. 4300, but just 4300 comments in general.

    As for differences, the only items I could identify was: Pandora, "better" screen, updated menus/firmware.

    Note also that Pioneer does not honor the warranty if bought from Sonicelectronix as they are not on Pioneer's accepted web vendor list. The Sonic purchase is warrantied by Sonic itself. Check prices on Amazon as Amazon is a Pioneer web vendor. When I bought mine a few months ago, the Amazon price was within a few $$$ of Sonic's, and I got to keep the Pioneer warranty. Note also that at that time the 4300 price and availability was changing daily, so watch it.

    SwingCase, driver side. PVC Bike rack. Aftermarket stereo.
    Relay amp value will not be an issue. "standard" automotive use relays are 30 or 40A. Just hook it up.

    And guys doing this - You can let the relay dangle around behind your dash, and things should be fine, but please be safe and use heat shrink or electrical tape around your connections!

    Did you watch the video?

    He shows where 2 posts on the relay are spliced together and grounded. Another post is hooked to the remote wire and the other to the parking brake wire from the HU.
