Yep, you have to get the iPod cable sometimes you can find deals that it comes with it. If you want a big screen go with a Pioneer Avic D3, thats what I'm putting in.

I just picked up a Kenwood KDC-X991 and it's unbelieveable. The display is brillant, controls your ipod, and your sound control is astonishing. Definitely worth a look...and oh yeah, it has it's own 512 mb of memory, and shows the album artwork on the screen.

I scored mine off ebay for 300 bucks. I went looking the other day out of curiousity and they were around 350 to 400 on there. Once I figure out how to post some pics, I'll put some up showing the artwork on the screen. And sorry about the dirt bag who stole your stuff, those kind of things **** me off royal.

This is what the deck looks like when it's downloading the artwork. In this one the text for the song is blury because it scrolls and the camera needed to have the shutter open a little longer to get the pic.

This is what the deck looks like while playing music from my ipod. The four lines of text can independently have their color changed to match your truck. I was able to match the stock red and green dash perfectly. Now my dash is blue, so the deck is blue.

Hope this helps man, and sorry about the humongous pictures, but I don't know how to make them shrink. Drats
