copy and pasted directly from crutchfield if you dont believe me:

iPod/iPhone AV Playback: The Pioneer multimedia head unit supports both audio/video playback from a compatible iPod or iPhone. Using your iPod or iPhone's USB/Dock cable you can enjoy audio playback of music, podcasts, and Apps stored on your iPod or iPhone. Using the Pioneer CD-IU200V iPod/iPhone connector cable (130IU200V, sold separately), you can also enjoy video playback of movies, TV shows, video podcasts, and music videos stored on your iPod or iPhone. The CD-IU200V iPod/iPhone connector cable plugs into the unit's USB port (using the supplied USB extension cable) and the unit's A/V Aux input terminal.

are you serious?

im 100% sure the answer is yes....make sure you research the seller and think about what you are going to do if you run into problems or need a warranty? I doubt they are authorized seller so you are asking yourself for a headache if your not prepared

Usually ebay items are not warrantied thru the manufacturer so that's a risk you take. That being said, I have purchased many things from ebay and have yet to have a problem. Think of that extra $50 as insurance should anything go wrong. You have to decide if that's important to you.

On a side note, I have a 4200DVD and it's awesome. The 4300 does pandora control thru the iphone which is something I wished I had right when I got it.

well now that i got my headunit picked out, whats the best way to get sound quality out of a ford f150? i have a set of cadence 6.5 components im going to put in the doors, and another set but not sure i want to put them in the rear because its pretty much right beside your back... eventually im going to add a sub, my previous truck was a 2000 s10 ext cab with a fiberglass box with 3 12" kicker cvx's and a 1000 watt memphis amp. i dont want to go as loud and boomy as that was. i know a single cab doesnt have as much room behind the seat so some input would be good, i was thinking maybe a JL w3..

Fords have 5x7s in the doors so you'll need adapters for the comps you have now. The double dins fit nice in Ford dash openings.

As for subs, if it's a reg cab you should be able to have a nice selection of subs. I had a reg cab ranger and getting a sub behind the seats and have leg room was tough. This was before to onslaught of shallow woofers hit the market though. I think JL makes some shallow(er) models, but I've been out of the game so long I don't know what they offer.

Browse some F150 forums and see what others have done to theirs. It's a great way to get lots of ideas and see them implemented.

A lightning?? Thats sweet. You better watch out for those ecoboosts in the near future. I've seen what those engines are capable of. A little software and a little more boost and they're monsters.

But yeah. I'm liking my alpine type r 10 I have hooked up. Maybe try the shallow version of the Rs?? If you make your own box you'll be able to fit anything behind the seats.
