Hello all,
Brand new member here. Seems like a very helpful place with some pretty knowledgable people in residence. Hopefully my questions will be pretty simple.
What I have:
2001 Jeep Cherokee
Pioneer DEH-P77DH
Pioneer 6CD changer connected over IP-BUS

I am looking to upgrade the head unit. The opening in 1.5 DIN, but obviously a single DIN will fit. What I want it to have is iPhone compatibility so I can play music on my iPhone and contol it on the head unit. I would also like to have bluetooth answering of calls on the head unit. The kicker is I would like to keep using the cd changer as well. At a minimum I would need to be able to play a cd inthe head unit. From my research it looks like even though pioneer still makes an IP-Bus cd changer, that the current pioneer models will not work with my cd changer. Is this right? are people getting away from changers?
I would like to stick with Pioneer if there is a reason to. If I can't use my changer, I am not really beholden to them, though I do like their products. Anyoen ahve recommendations for me? I would like to spend around $250 or less.

Thanks.

alot of companies are moving away from changers. with ipods that can hold 3 weeks of music in them, changers take up alot of room and are not portable. (not saying it is right, but when the market goes away, you stop making it)

here is what a google search got me, dont know if those are current models though.

That is what I was thinking about the changer issue. The more I think about it, there more I think that I probably dont need a changer.
Thanks so much for the work. Those do appear to be non-current models. I am not really a guy that needs to have brand new stuff, but in this case, I would like to, as I am most likely going to be getting a new phone in less than a year, and want to have the best chance that this head unit will work with the new phone as well.
Any suggestions for a unit that will do iphone control, blue tooth and have a cd player from any manufacturer?
