New Deck

Ok after fiddling around with stuff I finished installing my dual deck...I like it pretty well. I ditched the pioneer cause I didn't like the ipod setup it had and having to click down through lots of artists blows. This deck you control from the ipod. Anyone have an idea of making a mount for the ipod so I don't have to keep picking it up and change stuff? Here's the pics:

Has a cool motorized screen that comes down.

This was the ipod controller that was plugged into the back of the deck of the pioneer, I assume only pioneer decks work with it.

The only thing I don't like after changing decks is a, this wont charge my ipod, and b the screen doesnt display artists and other things. but o well.

P.S. Don't try to reuse a used wiring harness from a previou aftermarket deck. It was so much easier spending 10 dollars and getting a new one at wallyworld.
Next comes a sub/amp setup hopefully!

Why would you ditch a pioneer unit for a dual?

I didn't like how my ipod played through the pioneer....I would rather control it on my ipod than click down through all the artists and whatnot...i'm happy with it so far
