F.S. Awesome Panasonic Headunit (FL)

I bought this new for about $350 from Circuit City a little over a year ago. Its an awesome headunit. never had a problem with it. you can do so much with it like upload your own pic and have a slide show going and stuff like that. Not a scratch on it. the pics are kind of bad, it doesn't do it justice. included is the plastic shell (or whatever you call it) for the ranger.

Sacrific $200 shipped

The one he's selling was top of the line about a year ago....

NO WAY you got a player like the one in this ad for only 130....unless it's off flebay.



I can vouge for Panasonics quality and features...ive had 3(2 in my ranger) and absolutely love them.

I have a very similar Panasonic Head Unit...the only difference is it isn't full color display. It is just all blue. Very nice stereo. I bought mine a year ago for roughly $250, and it is the cheaper model compared to this one.

Are you sure? I believe there is. As I stated earlier in this thread, I have the same Panasonic Head Unit, only the cheaper version (no full color display). I was able to run an AUX cord from the back of the head unit through my ashtray. I can plug my zune, or an IPOD into it.

Oh, and free bump

Its made for ipod meaning there is a direct connect cable in the back. You just route it wherever you want, it will play and charge. You might have to buy the cable seperate, they're cheap on ebay though.
