I've been wanting to get an indash tv for my car for a while... i was the store today and i was offered Alpine IVA-D300 Indash Monitor (7 inch w/dvd) for 1250 installed out the door(free installtion). Is that a good price or do you think i can get a better deal? I seen that the retail price is 1500. Can i get some opinions?I live in the bay area in California.

e36, go fer it. Fit is perfect, and the only thing to worry about is the screen, once deployed, will block the one air conditioner vent..

I would personally go with a Pioneer AVH-P6600DVD. You should be able to find it for that same price. If you can't, come to Cincinnati and I'll sell it to you for that price.

The reason I say this is because Alpine has an impossible system to ground out to watch video while moving. So forget about watching DVDs without the ebrake. The Pioneer on the other hand, well, it's easier to hook up so you can watch the video while moving than it is to hook it up properly.

The pioneer also has a much wider viewing angle, and typically last longer. I see alot of service on the Alpine unit.

Actually that's not true. We install Alpine indash DVD/LCD systems all the time, and they work without the E-brake engaged. I will speak with my installer tommorow to get the specifics on how this is done. Maybe I can help you guys in Cinci allow those to go out and reak havoc with their movies blarring while in motion. :P

I do agree with the choice of the Pioneer unit. We sell a lot more of those and never have problems with 'em. Same goes for Kenwood.

I didn't know they wouldn't let you watch a movie while moving! That would have pissed me off. How do you turn that function off?

pioneer, I forgot the actual model number of the one I've been looking at. It's the new one with the built in GPS.

As far as I know(not sure about Eclipse or Clarion), all indash DVD/LCD head units come with a safety feature that prevents watching a movie while the vehicle is in motion. When installed there is a lead in the wiring harness that is attached to the Parking Brake, that when released, it cuts off the video.

We make our customers sign waiver releasing us from liability for any unforseen accidents. Once signed, we give the customer the option of bypassing this safety feature. :wink

BTW there trippinbillies, I am off to see DMB tonite in Nashville. I wouldn't normally go (not a HUGE fan), but Sony gave me front row center and VIP backstage passes for selling a bunch of their crap!

I'm seeing them here in Cincy.

Do you guys have the nice sony spiff program we have? I've made quite a bit of loot with it.

We probably work for stores in the same buying group. Sounds like we carryt eh same stuff.

540i/6 in Tx. is an unknown quantity at this point
Peripheral makes a universal trigger output module that works great with the Alpine Screens. The part number is PTR-7. When the unit turns on it automatically bypasses the "petal dance" to turn the screen on. There is also a way with 2 SPDT relays and a momentary switch, but it is a major pain compared to the PTR-7.
