If you have a factory stereo then I don't know if it will be cheaper to buy a new stereo and make sure you have a audio in jack and then it's as simple as buying a headphone connector that plugs into the audio in

Alpine and Clarion have a double din full stereo upgrade that will fit perfectly into the dual slot in the toyota 100 series.

Features will include, according to brochures i have seen,
- dvd
- reverse camera hook up
- ipod both music and video integration
- full control of the IPOD with all playlists and songs etc on screen
- normal CD etc
- radio
- 6.5 or 7 inch in dash screen
- ability to run exteranl other monitors simultaneously or on thier own

Price will be approx $2,000 i beleive.

I am having the same issue with the fm transmitter etc giving dodgey quality at different times depending on location etc.

Question is it it worth the price for all of the above. Plus the video connectivity of the IPOD is not there yet, awaitign a cable that both have said is a "few weeks away".

With the new IPODS doign full video why do you only want the music from the IPOD. I ahve a number of music videos and video podcasts off ITUNES that would be great to ahve the kids watching rather than just listentig to in the car.

Others will join in wiht these options shortly and like all stereo and tech equipment i bet price will drop quick.
