I've not had a whole lot of experience with Pioneer product. One question I would ask... Do you have an I Pod and will you be using it in the Jeep? The reason I ask, when I was looking for a new double din deck, I knew I was going to be using my I Pod lots, much easier than CD's. I had the guy at the local shop show me some things and the Pioneer seems to take quite a while to load up. I ended up getting an Alpine and within 5 seconds of start up, the music is playing off the I Pod.

Not sure if this is info you may have been looking for... but here it is.

yes i use the ipod all the time, nothing else.....

one thing i liked about the pioneer is how nice the ipod interface is, and from stuff online i like the way you can swipe the screen like an ipod.

I have the previous version of the radio. It is awesome! Go to Avic411.com and you'll see what I'm talking about. That one has streaming pandora as well thru your Internet from the cell phone. When I upgrade, this will be what I go to.

Since your other pioneer crapped out on you may i suggest another brand

Yes, but there's just something about him. Something around the eyes, I don't know, reminds me of... me. No. I'm sure of it, I hate him.

We just put AVIC-Z110BT, I think thats the previous flagship model, in Jenna's Smurfette with a Bass Tube.. it kicks ass!

I like it better than my Kenwood DNX-9140 that has Garmin NAV. The AVIC model Jenna has you can search for a location on the NAV by phone number.. for some stupid reason the z120BT doesn't have this feature.

If your interested in a double din dvd set up for an ipod check out jvc....they have three models less than 500 bucks and they are detachable faces. I'm going with one first of the year.
