Pioneer AVIC F700 or 900BT if you can still pick one up, They just came out with the new versions of each of those but i cant think of the model name right now..

I have the 900BT and it makes usin your IPOD easy as hell. Also can connect to your phone thru bluetooth and make all your calls through your Navi.. It has Voice comman too...

Alpine IVA-W505.

Audio/video with full control included in addition to being my favorite.
X1000000

Alpine is the only company who actually works directly with apple to get the best compatibility with the ipods/iphones.

Here is what the F700 and 900BT screen looks like for the Ipod. Its very simple..just as easy as usin the ipod itself. I just leave mine in my glove box.

I hate my F700. Too many quirks. Sometimes the touch screen doesn't work, sometimes the bluetooth locks up ( so I don't even use it anymore), and it takes forever to start up.

Alpine all the way. I haven't been able to see the new Clarion's yet, but I doubt they're as good as the Alpine.

Thats wiered that your touch screen doesnt work and bluetooth locks up, Never happens to me. I would send it back to the manufacturer under warranty and see whats up..Or take it back to the shop you got it from

do you have version 2.0?? the older version takes way longer then version 2.0. usually takes less than a min now.
