    Been a while since I posted, so I thought I'd mix in some video clips.

    Here is how I use pandora on my blackberry using bluetooth to my JVC Kamelion head unit...

    I love my audio setup ( yes mr marv built my box ) and the pandora works pretty dang well. Only problem is that I have the ipod(audio) and usb(video) so I don't have to use Pandora much, but every once in a while i'll bust it out for variety since i'm stuck in the late 90's musically.

    yeah, I think it's worth it a quick easy test.
    And if you love pandora, like some do, then it's probably a clutch feature.

    Hey Taco box, did you run the test ? What did you think ?
    ( if yes--> do you agree the quality is solid ? )

    I'm planning on getting that Pioneer unit just for that reason. I like that all of the iPhone/iPod controls get replicated on the head unit, including the thumbs up/down and save to buy later buttons. Anxiously awaiting the iPhone and then I'll be shopping the Pioneer unit.

    DangerBird, thanks for posting your update, glad you like the feature.

    I'd like to remind everyone that while this works with Pandora very well, it is even MORE slick if you have music ON YOUR CELL PHONE.

    When you do that, then (on my head unit) it will display the track and artist information as well as integrate into your Steering Wheel Controls.

    In fact, when using your "BLUETOOTH" input mode (if available on your HU ) on your after market stereo, it will play any audio files that you have.

    For example, I have movies on my phone too, it will actually play the audio from "Blackhawk Down" for example! just go fart around with it while you're waiting for your oil change or at the dentist office. If you have kids, and patience, you can put their favorite songs on there lol..

    I have a couple more videos I'm going to share with you guys on other crap that you can do with your truck, I think you'll like it !

    Cuz
