Just decided on the CD player im getting for the truck...

Went to the local AV shop yesterday lokking for a new stereo for "Betsy." i had a few things in mind...

1)had to have decent power

2)HAD to "control" ipod through USB, no stupud av jack where you have to have the ipod out....

3)Has to match truck...

Budget up to $220....

well found one, it cost $219.....

its a JVC KD-R800......


JVC Mobile Entertainment \ Dual USB/CD Receiver w/ Bluetooth - KD-R800 \ Introduction

it is black so it matches interior, i can change the lights to red to match truck, it has TWO USB ports....controls IPOD

the best part is it comes bluetooth ready, all i have to do is install and place included mic somewhere in truck and im all set to go wireless....music will mute or pasue when i have incoming call....im getting it here soon....i would get it now but i gotta save for beach....

seem pretty spiffy, I thought JVC was always on the lowered end... but I haven't looked at any units in a long time

well i did to i always like pioneer, but i bought a pioneer and it messed up, my gf has a pioneer that messes up, both of my frineds have pioneers that are messed up...

so far my best luck was my $250 sony xplod i had in my previos ranger...it lasted 2 years and still works now...

i really like all of those features tho on this JVC....i may go with kenwood, but not sure, im still kinda stuck on this JVC
