    I got the Alpine CDA-105 it has a built in interface and everthing, I paid 155 from Amazon if I remember right. You will need to buy that cable though.

    Just ordered one online, I was too looking for a single din deck that would control my ipod, here are some of the reason why I chose Alpine

    - charges the ipod when connected
    - ease of use
    - color screen
    - menus are setup like an Ipod
    - has red illumination
    - last one is kinda bias... been using Alpine ever since :D

    I went with a JVC head unit. It has a front USB port for Ipod and Zune plus USB sticks full of musical goodness.

    I bought a Pioneer (same model as the one JohnnyTaco was selling), simple hook up. Usb'd full control over the iPod. Just plug it in and store in glove box, then enjoy. I lost the remote to it though.

    FWIW I started with single din and later went to double din. If you have a large library and listen to your ipod the majority of the time, I think you would be FAR more pleased with a double din unit. Makes ipod usage WAY easier IMO.
