i have to ask to all that have posted their head units here how many preamp outputs on the decks i have found till you get over the 1000.00 range its hard to get 5 preamp outputs the reason i wont buy one without 5 is i want a sub channel preamp output for more controll . at the time i got this unit it had the most options for the money by far now i think there is some others . i want a new unit this one is for sale $300.00 shipped within the lower 48 states this unit has usb connetction ,ipod controller , satelite ,tomtom gps removable , cd ,mp3,bluetooth, 5 sets of preamp outputs , not a bad unit i just want even more like dvd player [IMG][/IMG]

Alpine iDA-X100. It keeps me connected to my iPod and lets me see the album art too.

Same interface, but scrolling is a lot slower, at least on mine don't know about the x100

There are youtube videos just look it up so you can see how it works. Ida-x200 or Ida-x100

As you would expect from looking at it, the big wheel in the middle of the iDA-X100/iDA-X200 allows you navigate the content on your iPod in a manner similar to using your iPod.
Because it connects via USB, songs load almost instantly.

To speed up the process of searching through large music collections, you push in on the big wheel first and then rotate it left or right (this is the equivalent of scrolling quickly on your iPod). Once you get close to what you are looking for, you stop pushing in on the wheel and just rotate it left or right to select the correct item (this is the equivalent of scrolling slowly on your iPod).

This was not clearly documented in the manual but once you know this tip you can find things almost as quickly as using the iPod itself. Having said that though, I don't normally search for songs while the car is in motion because just like using a real iPod or cell phone it can be distracting.

Thanks yeah I have been playing with that but still don't see it go much quicker, I have to play with the settings more in order to get it in an ideal setting. I know there is a setting to change the scroll speed or something for that matter.

I installed a JVC KW-XG700 in my 2008 Yaris S Sedan. It has 3 sets of RCA outs (front/rear/sub), front mounted AUX input plus USB.

I replaced the front speakers with JBL P663 6.5" components...

and surface mounted the tweeters on the small panels behind the rear view mirrors.

The rear speakers were upgraded to JBL P963 6x9's.

These speakers are powered by a Kicker ZX200.4 amp that was certified at 64 watts per channel. I mounted this amp to the floor under the passenger seat. In the trunk, that has been covered with FatMat...

I installed a JBL P1024 10" dual voice coil subwoofer.

The sub is powered by a Kicker ZX300.1 monoblock amp that was certified at 325 watts. This amp is mounted to the back of the sub box in the trunk.

The spare tire cover and the rear carpet mat were trimmed to clear the sub. I took the carpet mat to an auto upholstery shop and had the trimmed edge bound and sewn.

Here's the installed sub with the spare tire exposed.

I still have full access to the spare tire with my setup.

All of my components, including the HU mounting brackets, wiring harness and speaker adapters, were purchased on Ebay. I installed everything myself with some assistance from a buddy with sub and amp wiring. My total investment is $1,200. I didn't get a touchscreen because I could not justify the extra cost. I also wanted a Double DIN HU because I think they look better in a Double DIN opening. I had to have three sets of RCA outs because I knew I wanted a a 4 channel amp plus a separate amp for the sub. This JVC HU met all my needs and didn't break the bank.

The only thing this HU doesn't have that I wish it had is HD radio. There are several HD stations in my area and would love to be able to tune in.

Looks kind of like a Pioneer or Kenwood touch screen unit. Is Enon a new brand?
