The aux port was starting to play up on the standard head unit so I replaced it with an Alpine X008.
This unit intergrates the hvac controls,steering wheel controls and also uses the info display in the dash to display track,station etc.
It also has an app you can download on your smart phone that allows you to try out other peoples sound setups.
I found this handy as a reference to setting up the sound the way I liked.
The unit accesses usb storage devices very fast and is almost instantaneous when making selections.

Pretty cool, I think I prefer the Clarion style one better though.
How much is the Alpine unit?
