I very rarely listen to the stereo in my car, but I couldn't wait to get rid of my Acapulco-

Now, I miss all things I took for granted- Mostly, the clock that's displayed on the big LCD with the unit is in standby (turned off)- Also, the preset buttons were easy to read-

I'm going back to simplicity-

Any suggestions?

i like the alpine ipod stuff we have the idax300 in our mini, works pretty well, only $140, buts in an digital media receiver so you have to have an ipod or cd changer

...the newest JVC single-DIN KD-AVX77 looks to have solved a lot of their first-generation usability problems - pretty capable while keeping simple and clean...


...personally, though, i'm still most endeared with the becker grand prix to complement our cars' basic interior control scheme...

Yeah, just buy me a better head unit, with an ipod interface, and I'll send you my blau.
Might you be interested in a Jensen with fold-out DVD? JK, I wouldn't recommend my current setup to anyone- I guess I got what I paid for!

I see what you're saying about the Becker, and funny you should mention the El Kameleon- I've been eye-balling these units for a while, and while I love the way it looks, and "disappears", the first version is not very user-friendly-

So, when the new one came out I inquired to JVC about displaying the time when the unit is in stand-by mode (HU off / ingnition on)- It's not an option, an when you think about it, the idea kinda contradicts the whole kameleon concept- BTW: I was impressed with how quickly they responded to my email- Oh well, I'll get over the clock thing, and I'll probably end up with the JVC-

Thanks for the feedback-
