But dont the JVC units have the basic buttons on the body and are not touch based. Volume, source,menu
Also dont they all come with remotes too

I want to upgrade my current double DIN HU (Pioneer MP5000 - its a simple CD + cassette HU) to something better. What I want is (in order of priority):

- Decent sound quality (good enough for JBL components, Pio subwoofer powered by separate Sony amps. might upgrade sub to image dynamics at some point + amp to match)
- Clean, simple design (not too many buttons, no funky colours or designs, preferably a glass+metal look)
- Ability to play mp3 cds (although I mostly listen to regular audio cds)
- Bluetooth kit
- Iphone/Ipod integration

Thats all. I dont need any DVD functionality, since most of the time its only me in the car and its quite hard to watch movies and avoid donkeys at the same time!

Looking for your suggestions. Thanks in advance.

Alright, so I was being lazy and not bothering to do the research myself. I've narrowed it down to the following 2 choices:

Pioneer FH-P8000BT

Pioneer USA - Pioneer FH-P8000BT

Clarion WXZ466MP

Clarion Australia | WXZ466MP

Any idea about availability and prices? And please choose between these.

The clarion will cost about 20k (internet prices from australian website). The jvc avx looks like a better option though. The clarion might sound better( gurus please confirm)

Australian prices are quite often higher than prices from India.

An American store on the other hand would probably show savings of upto 40%

Go to EVO in Cambridge Layout. Owned and managed by our Bhpian Blueraven aka Satya. I think he should hook you up with whatever you need. I got myself the AVX800 for Rs.23k earlier this month. AVX814 was similarly priced. Prolly dropped Rs.1k.

hey guys i have the jvc avx 800 in my car its really good with all the options
cost me 26,000 rs i then paid 8,000 rs for the jvc bluetooth adapter and 1,600 for the jvc steering remote and i have paired it to my nokia n95 mobile.it connects automatically when i get into my car and switch the system on,i even use voice dialing when driving
my problem is the n95 is not in the built in list of phones in the jvc so i cannot use the message function and phone book with the jvc
i have been trying to locate a firmware update for the jvc avx 800 but no luck so far can anyone help me to locate and download the latest firmware for the avx 800 please
