Good dash screen head unit

I'm kinda thinking about swapping my shaker 500 out for a different head unit. I'd like to get one with a screen. I am undecided on pop out or the I dash screen. I'd like it to be able to play DVDs, auxiliary spot or iPod docking cable that I could control from the unit. I would also like but not need a remote for it. I currently have the shaker 500 speakers along with 2 12" crossfire db3 subs in the trunk.

I bought the pioneer 4300 dvd headunit.
Instalation was easy once i remembered how to solder the harness together.
It has a ipod cable plugin to the back. Simply route it to the glove box and connect in there, had pandora integration, ipod controls and can play video from it.
Slides down and out to reveal the dvd and memory card slots.
Only thing ive had problems is it pulses between day/night brightness, but i turned them both up then blackout the screen at night with a push of a button. Hasnt annoyed me enough to look into.
Good luck finding a head unit for yourself

I've had one of their cheaper units in my Ranger[IN432B] for several years now. You might not ever hear of the Innovative brand, but I am absolutely thrilled with mine. Every feature works flawlessly.

Can the unit stay opened after you turn off the vehicle or does it close?

For me personally I ended up getting the kenwood ddx319 which is a nice system. I'm able to play DVD's, movies off my ipod, and everything. the only thing I might change is getting the 419 which come's with the bluetooth set up. I should also say if you get the nav package installed just as a heads up in order to get the update it will cost you another 100 to get it from garmin. I hope this helps also here's is a link over to where I got the system from Kenwood DDX319 DVD receiver at Crutchfield.com

Are you asking if the screen stays deployed with the ignition off? The unit I have has a fixed screen that does not retract into the radio. It has 3 adjustment angles and goes flat to access the CD/DVD slot.

I have a JVC, mainly because I had a JVC deck defore that and had the Bluetooth and Sirius add-ons already, so I stuck with JVC so I could use those accessories, although I wanted the Pioneer.

You guys must have pristine roads and no traffic where you live. When I went aftermarket with my head unit I considered a DVD touch screen type, but quickly realized that with how bad the roads were here combined with the heavy traffic that the need to have a tactile feel to keep your eyes on the road was pretty much a necessity. So I opted for a less expensive Kenwood with a knob and real buttons so I could feel what I was doing instead of having to look down all the time.
