    Anyone know what the real differences are between the Pioneer AVH-P4300DVD & the P4200DVD models? Can't seem to find anything definitive.

    From what I could tell in the store...the screen size is the biggest difference / and one has a motorized screen obviously. I wasn't a fan of how the 3200 looked as I like the clean look of the LCD display and then just a few buttons underneath. The 3200 had a lot going on in addition to the screen with the usb / memory card / dvd slots.

    Usually keep up on this forum and don't recall anything. From what I've searched though, these are the diffs I've heard mentioned so far:

    • "better" screen (not sure what that means though)
    • supports Pandora
    • GUI/menu navigation improvements
    Just not sure if the 4300 is worth the additional $$$ (about $50) over a 4200.

    I just got the 4300 installed yesterday, and I really like it. the only downside I see is that there isnt a rotary knob for the volume, only buttons. But since It comes a remote, it really doesnt matter to me.
