I've been out of the car audio arena for a long time, so I really haven't been up on all the new tech. I rode in a coworker's 4Runner the other day and he had a really nice Pioneer HU with Nav/iPod/Phone/DVD etc... I want one now.

I would love to have Nav but I know that nearly doubles the price, plus, I have a Garmin Nuvi, and an iPhone, so it would just be overkill for me.

I'm not looking to spend a small fortune. I've always been partial to Pioneer. My old systems used to be based around them. From reading on here, it seems they fit right into an Element. It's an '04 EX for the record.

Here is a list of what I'd like it to do. Can you help me decide which one I should go with?

-Full iPod interface with video and playlists
-DVD. Divx, xVid and other codecs would be nice
-MP3 playback from CD
-Bluetooth with iPhone
-Largest screen possible
-Don't care about back up camera
-Don't care about GPS.
-Wallpaper? Do they have features to run photo slideshows from a card or iPod?
-Sirrius
-HD Radio Receiver

I appreciate any help you can offer. Thanks!

This is awesome and it does all of that. It comes with a cable for basic iPod functions but requires a different cable ($50 at Best Buy) to get video from an iPod/iPhone. Works with 3G iPhone. You can get a BT module, or an HD Radio module, or an XM module, or a Sirius Module, or a backup camera. And if you put pictures on a CD and pop it in you can transfer the pics from the CD to the HU and save em as your wallpaper. And it has an AV input and output. I'm going to get a Digital TV converter box and add it to the mix so I can watch local channels. Eventually I'll get the HD radio tuner as well.

Here's where I ordered it from and it was less than $400 shipped...

I'd say if you were wanting to get into an AV HU this should be the one.

That's the one I've come to like. I went to Best Buy today to see if I could play with one. That place sucks. First, they didn't have one on the wall. Second, they couldn't even play a movie so I could demo the old 4000 unit, because they can't bypass the parking brake stop sensor. The 4000 unit's controls and display looked kind of cheesy to me, I want to see what the 4100 looks like.

Maybe I can see one somewhere else...

Or you could just plug your iPod into your computer. Open it up in Windows explorer. Navigate to the music files (they will be weird letters and numbers). Copy and paste them to another iPod. Done!! And you saved $25.
