2. The iPod adapter they sell will charge your iPod
3. No it will not charge your cell, the bluetooth adapter justs plugs into the back of the HU, you won't even see the unit after installation (depending on where you install it).
4. Love the pioneer remote on mine for the reason that it is easier to use than that HU controls.

Thanks guys. I ordered the bluetooth wireless adapter, I-pod cable and the remote. Think I found a good deal. Paid $168 for all 3. Including shipping. should be here in a week or so.
Now I have to start thinking about an I-pod. Was thinking about the shuffle/2GB. The literature says it will hold 500 songs. That's only about twice what my 12 CD changer can do right now. For only $69 + S&H, that seems like a good deal though. On the other hand for only $149 - 199 +S&H, I can get the Nano. With 8 & 16 GB respectively. Finally the Classic. For only $50 more than the 16 GB Nano, I can have 120 GB of Digital music. Then there are always the "Refurbished" Nano, $99 and "Refurbished" Classic, $169. Are the Refurbished I-pods as reliable as the new ones? My ENTIRE
CD collection is currently only about 200 CD's and about 16 GB. When I stopped buying vinal records, my collection was over 1200 records. If I live long enough, I can see my CD collection getting almost as large. I will probably never put videos, or photos on the I-pod. Just music.
So I guess my new question is, which I-pod is best for me. I'm leaning towards the 8 GB Nano. The bargain hunter in me says for only $100 more, I could have the classic with 15 times the capacity. Even though I'll probably never use anywhere near that much capacity. Decisions, decisions, decisions.
So let's hear it guys. Pros and cons on the various I-pods. Thanks for any help.
