Default Best 3 line display indash unit?

My current Kenwood is finally starting to crap out after years of service. I want a new unit that has 3 line display. Something I can hook up my iPod to would be a plus. Any recommendations?

I just picked one of these up:



Panasonic CQ-VD6503U 6.5" Wide Screen Touch-Panel LCD Monitor/DVD Video Receiver

Amazon has the best price on it.

Take a look at the JVC's. The 3 line display is nice. DAB and I have posted pics here at SBS, just do a search for them.

Looks nice, but I want a single DIN player.

You want the ability to play DVD's? If so I'd suggest the JVC AVX2. It is single din.

None that I am aware of, but I am pretty anti-Alpine due to text limitation on Sirius text information.

Very Nice Indeed, maybe they have even fixed the limited text in the 2007 version of the headunit/tuner interface combo. This may actually spark some new interest in Alpine. I like the fact that you get the PNP features such as artist/song seek, game alerts, ff/rw replay feature to show up on the Alpine display. iPod adapater appears to show the album art, hopefully that can be turned off to show more text.

Available: March 2007 though in most cases they are late by a month.




This appears to be much like the Harmon Kardon Play and Drive unit that was just announced, but interfaces directly with the Alpine.
