Also, how would this unit compare to the other models I'm seeing such as the AVH X3500, 4500, 5500, etc.? I am having trouble finding a decent comparison. It seems like the 5500 might have better resolution than the P4400, but I'm not certain.
Current reviews suggest that the x5500bhs is iphone 5 friendly and it doesn't seem like I would need the accessory cable if all I wanted to do was stream audio (song information is apparently pushed over BT on this model).
I appreciate any input.
This does not require soldering. I'm lazy and have used only crimps on about a dozen stereo installs. I've never had a problem with the connection.
unfortunately, i can't speak on the model comparisons.
