So I would like to upgrade to a new H/U. I want to stay with an Kenwood that will work with my wired puck style remote. I would like it to also have a wireless remote so I can change songs from the shore. I would also want it to have a USB input for my Iphone so I can get rid of the P.O.S. hook up my head unit that I have now has. Any thoughts? I am trying to go as cheap as possible and still get what I want...Please help. I think the boss has given me the Okay to pull the triger.

New head unit...One more time.

I am in the same boat and was going to go with the KDC-x395. It has 3 sets of 4V preouts and is iPhone compatible - has USB and Aux input on the front panel. Has a wireless remote. Is compatiible with the remote pucks. Goes for about $120 shipped online, or pick one up at Car Toys for $140.
But I have decided to try a different approach - I am going to go without a head unit and instead go with a Clarion EQ at the helm and just plug my iPhone into that.Al

Just to through this out there I am selling the Sony stereo and remote my GF bought for my B-day. (She didn't know I already had ordered the Kenwood and I did not want to hurt her feelings.) We used it for about a month and a half and I "faked" an problem so I could put the new one in (shhhh don't tell her). I still liked the Sony, but I liked the storage compartment enough to swap it. I was asking $175.00 but am open to offers. It doesn't do me any good sitting in the closet.

I've been looking into the KMR-440, does that 700U still work with the puck style drivers control? I think its a KCA-RC60 or something..... I see you have the RC107 with the digital reading for song and what not which would be awesome on the transon, but It sure would look goofy to replace the RC60 I got up by the drivers helm that is molded for that oval control....CBAarestad

08LSV, I know this thread is a couple months old, but you wouldn't still have that Sony head unit and remote for sale would you?Brandon
