Opinions on a few Head Units with USB support.
So I really like the idea of the HU + USB HDD in my car and was wondering if anyone had opinions on the following (listed with my top pro and top con):
Pros: From what I've seen, the navigation and "boot" times are really good.
Cons: It's not double-din and it won't match my lighting. If I don't hear otherwise, I'll probably give this one a shot.
Pros: From what I've seen on youtube the mp3 browsing is 2nd to none.
Cons: No CD bay.
Pros: Rear port. Color matching.
Cons: Can't find much info or many reviews, so it's a shot in the dark.
Pros: I think this would look almost stock in my '03 Type S.
Cons: Another shot in the dark. Rumor has it, it only supports up to 10Gb.
Pros: Less stock than the above, but still better looking than a single din. Positive reviews at crutch.
Cons: I'm really not sure how well browsing mp3 files would work on that screen.
If someone out there has another recommendation, I'm all ears (err... eyes?). I really like the double-din look in my car ('03 Acura RSX Type S), but having the lower bay free would let me hide my HD in there and maybe affix it with a lock or an Acura emblem. Also, I started to list "Price" as a con on some of those but realized if it's worth it, it's worth it. Still I'm not prepared to drop $1000 on a HU alone.
Oh and just to reiterate, I want to use a portable HDD, not just a flash drive, so load times and supported models are a factor.
