There is also an iPhone powered unit too, not the right shape for ford so would need an adapter facia. But is iTunes compatible and supports all iPhone/iPod apps etc..

It would be a hacked ios version at a guess , at least with the Android version you know you were getting a stable system.

I do indeed have one. Had it for over a year now and it's a Sony like this one but mine does have a few more things on the spec sheet.. http://www.halfords.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/product_storeId_10001_catalogId_10151_productId_774659_langId_-1_categoryId_237503

Are they worth it? Yes and no. Mine was a pricey £500 reduced from £650 when it came out. I bought it thinking I'd use the whole range of things it could do but to be completely honest I rarely ever use the DVD player, 30% I'd use my iPod and the rest I'll just listen to radio 1 or bung in a cd (as I only travel short distances so I can't be bothered messing about with it!)

My friends do love it though and will just sit and mess around with it if we're out :)

Have to say I am kind of gutted now I paid £500 over a year ago to see it drop to around £200, but hey ho!

no offence but aldi do a bluetooth cd mp3 player with usb micro sd card slot i pod connection at the front higher spec than above just no screen n dvd for 49.99 shows how much extra you pay for features you never use? and how much more you get if you take the dvd part away and they are good systems with 3yr warranty even halfords double din systems at around 100quid dont have as many features

each to there own as i said dvd are old school if you want cool you have touchscreen fully integrated systems since you can have reversing cameras with a screen in built to the rear view mirror it in my opinion it seems pointless spending money on out of date systems. as dvds are dying as are cds. downloadable content storing music on sd cards ipod connectionand full android phone integration systems are the new way that system is impressive a dvd is so what , its ancient whats the big deal.

i give honest opinions and im being honest if i was spending the money ide want up to date tech

The difference with the Android Player is that , your basically getting a PC in your car , so you can surf the internet or have internet radio , Satnav DVD, Mpeg, MP3 , bluetooth, and all the Apps you want right at your fingers tips.

Many of them that have Iphone connections are just that a connection , if you can store 16gb or 32gb of music on an SD card why would you want to carry an MP3 player with you.

My stereo just as it is all i use is a Memory stick , If i had an Ipoo i still would not plug it in , as there is no need to carry it. Of course some of the ford stereos don't have the Usb.

But the Players on Ebay are great if you like gadgets , but don't expect high quality sounds from them.
