granted you can get more features on other kenwood decks for same money, but the intriguing thing with this one is keeping your ipod or mp3 in my case out of sight. no need to run other cables or find a place to install a holder. not real sure that any additional features are really needed in the sonically imperfect boat world. as long as it has good specs out and 4v preouts, not really much else needed. fancy tone settings and parmetric eq's really aren't needed in a boat.
seems that some of you have decks mounted in the glovebox. mine in the supra is right next to the steering wheel, so the mp3 storage is a big plus. keeps it all convenient.
it is a standard din size, but does have an additional outboard box that you would have to mount.
cd's are dying the same death cassette's and 8tracks are. I have a kenwood with the usb connector and xm in my truck and can't remember the last time I used a cd in it..

al, which one of thes can you control the ipod from the remotes. just the forward, back, pause, stop play buttons. I know you can't search the play list from the remotes but the other fuctions would be nice.

Jester, how do you like that Alpine you got man? Did you try the wireless remotes while wake boarding? DO they work as advertised?Malo <--- Means--Evil or Mean One. This explains a lot.

Look for this under the description of the unit on soniclectronix website:
"iPod USB direct connectivity via your standard iPod-to-USB connection cable allows you to charge, control, and playback your iPod through the receiver and stereo system"
Mine has this and as long as I connect my iPod/iPhone via the USB cable (not the aux in port), I can do all those commands you list via the remotes.Al

can't understand why the supra's have them in the dash and not the glovebox where it's lockable and not as easily stolen, but oh well.
I do like having the controls right there vs a puck though...'06 Supra Launch 20SSV-gone but never forgotten
