    Considering upgrading the radio in our Cobra since the aftermarket unit is about 8 years old. To give you an idea what it will be paired with, we currently have it installed with an JL Audio 500/5 amp that drives a set of MB Quart seperates up front and the rear in addition to a JL Audio 10" in a Custom Enclosure that is NOT ported.

    I am looking for suggestions from you about actual experience, here are the requirements in the Head Unit:

    * Must be single DIN
    * Must have Iphone connectivity
    * Must Operate reasonably fast

    Not absoutely neccesary but would also like

    * Blue Tooth
    * HD Radio

    We have looked at a few models and read a ton of reviews, but are really looking for your experience..... Let's hear what you have to say!

    I had the Kenwood KDC-MP345U in my 97 GT - nothing special, but it did the job

    5 channel output (4 channel speakers & sub), iPod/iPhone ready, bluetooth handsfree, CD/MP3 capable, stereo jack input on the front, removable faceplate & even has a remote. Navigating the settings is pretty easy too

    It won't set you back a bunch (I think I paid $130?) and does what you need it to

    Why does it have to be single DIN? The opening is Double DIN for a reason...
