I have an old 30gb ipod video that is plugging into the center console USB port (which I would like to still be able to use if possible)
I also have the newest iPod Touch (5th Gen) with bluetooth that I'll use from time to time in my car to stream wireless thru the factory stereo. I don't use my phone for music, and exploring these receivers I see many people are complaining that they aren't very compatible (if at all) with the iPhone 5 yet, so even though I plan to get an iPhone 5 soon, that's not a big deal because I don't use it for music, but it would be nice to have BT hands free calling.
I am looking at Crutchfield and seeing some pretty nice looking options, between Alpine touch screen and also Alpine touch screen DVD. I would stretch my budget to $500 for the receiver if it meant getting something packed with features.
I'm never in my car long enough for me to have considered paying for sat radio.
