    I have checked out crutchfield and don't know what I should be looking for. I would like a system with a good Ipod interface because I hate driving while trying to change my music on my Ipod.

    Try calling their customer service up, they're usually pretty helpful.

    Hey Stillerman, here is my new toy. Go to EBAY and type in Eclipse AVN5500. Go to the one for $699. That is the best price I could find. I also got the IPOD adapter for $50 shipped on EBAY. The Eclipse is pretty much plug and play. I always heard that they made the Toyota radio and that is why there is no harness to screw around with. It had GPS/IPOD/DVD.

    for the 5500 do you always have to keep a gps cd in the system in order to use the gps?

    go to www.powersellersnyc.com

    they sell the pioneer avic-d3 for 699.00. They are authorized to sell for pioneer. check my thread I started. It has one of the best i-pod interface with much more. you can listen to music and watch the navigation. It plays DIVX avi cd-r dvd + and - r and much much more. you can also put personal pictures on the background. DO NOT BUY FROM EBAY. you get no warranty and when you spend 700.00 you will won't a warranty. I purchased a 4 year warranty for mine for 99.00 and it was still 100.00 cheaper than crutchfield. Then I ordered my installation kit from crutchfield. Get the wiring harness as well. Easy install. Check out AVIC411.com forum just for the avic units.

    good luck.
