    I have the Pioneer AVH-P4300DVD

    Likes
    the easy to read display
    clean display not cluttered
    can add navigation

    Cons
    bluetooth not built in, uses old bluetooth adapter and can't load phone book.
    ipod is slow at skipping songs
    ipod freezes once in a blue moon
    hard too see in direct sunlight
    volume are buttons and not a knob

    I kind of wish I had my old Pioneer AVH-P5900DVD but it wasn't a double din it had the flip out screen, but never had the ipod problems as this one has. I had the AVH-P4200DVD before the 4300 and it has the same cons. Used two different ipods a classic and a nano both do it.

    The only thing the the 4300 has that the 4200 doesn't is the pandora. They didn't really change much on it. I want to get the AVH-P8400BH as it has the pioneer apps, you can use some apps on the iphone like inrix traffic and gps drive navigation. Hope the ipod is fixed on it.

    No nav, but it is nav capable with an additional module.

    Also no subwoofer.
