Im planning to add an overhead dvd unit by audiovox.
Does anyone know if an iphone/ipod with video can be played on the overhead unit or just on the kenwood?
The boss wants backup cam, sirius and iphone hooked up asap.
Do most run the iphone/ipod connector to a central console or to some mount?
Also is there a big difference b/w this and the next model up 7140 besides the extra 1"? seems like $500 for that increase is steep.
thanks for all the info and help!
You can play music and video from your iPod on the unit. You can then hook up other monitors via the AV output on the head unit. I bought my 6140 from Sonic Electronix for $750
. ( this listing says $799, but there ebay store has it for $750 so they matched the price) The mains difs between the 6140 and 7140 is the 7140 has
- front, rear and sub output
- $40 Remote is included
- Motorized faceplate (can adjust screen angle)
Other than these it doesn't look like much performance difference for the $300 increase. I would spend the saved money on rear/overhead monitors and backup camera. That's if you don't have money just fallen out of your pockets. I think the extra features are cool, I just couldn't justify spending the extra money. As you can see here I spent plenty in other ares.
