- I just want to know whether the iPod and USB flash disk compatibility comes in the box (i.e. adapter/cable included) or one has to buy it separately?

- Lastly, which Pioneer model has front USB and front AUX-IN?

EDIT: Just saw the 2008 Pioneer brochure. It seems that DEH 3050UB has front direct USB input and DEH 3000IB and DEH 4000UB has front AUX IN for iPod. Any idea about the prices for DEH 3050UB and DEH 4000UB?

No only the Us has this. We aren't advanced enough yet. Some radio stations in the US air the song name for example. The list buttons just vertically shows all the 'options' in the particular mode. So in CD, it will say Track 1, Track 2, Track 3 etc. In USB mode it will show the folder and file names of the mp3s. In Tuner (radio) mode, it shows the different stations that are preset. So 95.0, 104.8, 100.5 etc. etc. You get the point.

Looks plus number of RCAs I think.

Yes, straight out of the box. Nothing else required. It has an extension cable, which is quite long (it comes to my gearstick even after being discretely tucked away out of sight.)

After having used USB for a couple of weeks now, I would advise that don't get a HU with USB (or Aux-In) in the front. I felt exactly the same as you - there's something unappealing about a cable dangling from the back - but trust me, in practice it is actually much neater and more friendly to use.

Thanks vebmetal for this. Does the 5050 also offer this kind of out-of-the-box compatibility, or is it just the 6050 (which you have I presume?)

Why would you say so? I just thought it looks aesthetically better to have USB and AUX IN integrated and in front rather than cables coming from behind. I didn't know it had an effect on the usage as well

Yes and yes. The 5050 is overall better VFM than the 6050, but I needed a good display.

Exactly how I used to think too.. But having a pen drive sticking out in front is unpleasant aesthetically and also hinders button usage. And if you attach anything with a cable to the USB or Aux-In... well do you want cables hanging out the front (and possibly hindering gear shifting) ? It's much better to have it come from the rear because you can then devise a number of places to put your pen drive / hard disk / mp3 player / discman etc. and have the wire go to it discreetly. For instance you can have the device in the cubby hole, or the glove box, or (like me) just in front of the gear stick. It looks good and doesn't create any obtrusive wires.

Hmm, got that. Thanks buddy. Any idea about the price of 5050 in Delhi/Mumbai? Where did you buy it in Delhi? Also, any clue about Alpine 9887? or 9881?

I may be visiting Delhi around Holi time, so would you care to offer me an audition of your ICE?cheers:

Yeah sure, just let me know a day or two in advance. I got the 6050 from a place called "Driven" in East of Kailash. The 5050 is about 6.3K in Delhi AFAIK. No idea baout Alpine - they are USB unfriendly and CDs are dead to me, so didn't bother too much.

^ @vebmetal
I am planning on getting Pioneer 5050, as it offers iPod functionality as well as USB support. I have an old iPod Mini 6 GB model.

However, having read through this post (http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/produc...ioneer-hu.html), I have got into a doubt. You have clearly mentioned that 5050 offers out-of-the-box (plug and play) support for iPod and USB.
Does it do for iPod Mini as well?

Or do I need to buy additional cable/adapter for the same?

Also, does it charge iPod on the go, alongside playing it?

(I am hoping you have used the iPod with your 6050. From your earlier post, I guess you have been mostly using your 8GB flash disk!)

my 5050 manual says it works only for 5th Gen ipods and above only with Docconnector.Yes it charges the pod and turns off the pod after a few mins o turning off the HU.
The same cable used to connect the pod to Comp is used for this too it is plugged to the female USB behind the HU in a pio 5050UB

Just got to know from a few dealers in Mumbai that Pioneer 5050 is around INR 7200-7300. I read a few posts back that it was a thousand bucks less. Has the price increased?

The 6050 however is the same as what the forum members say - INR 9200
