Morning Discussion: Holiday Edition

by Alice O'Connor, May 31, 2010 5:00am PDT

Today is a holiday in both the USA and the UK--Spring Bank Holiday in the UK and Memorial Day in the USA--so we'll be running a little light on coverage but rest assured, we will have a few things to help you avoid working. Everywhere else, we apologise.

Like zombies? 'drMikey' sends word that he is selling prints of the acrylic painting that won him an honourable mention in our recent Left 4 Dead art contest. Brain-tastic.

    After spending most of this weekend researching and evaluating, I reached a decision a new head unit for the Mustang. Hooray!

    Pioneer AVIC-X920BT http://signature.crutchfield.com/s_130AVIC920/Pioneer-AVIC-X920BT.html

    Even came with a free set of speakers (Pioneer Premier TS-A702C ) and a Pioneer iPhone cable. Dunno what I'll do with the speakers, I don't think they fit the Mustang.

    I almost went with the AVH-P4200DVD with the CD-BTB200 blue tooth add on, but I had to have nav. I spent quite a bit of time agonizing over the AVIC-Z120BT, but in the end I just couldn't bring myself to spend $1,400 on a head unit.

    Bought a back up camera, 16GB SD card and a 32GB thumb drive as well. The unit plays wma audio files, and I can put my entire cd collection encoded in wma lossless on those two flash drives.

    I think the X920BT will fit the bill nicely. Nav, BT, voice commands, Multimedia - DVD, SD, USB. Everything I wanted, with a nice touch screen user interface.
