Default Pioneer AVH-X8500BHS

Thoughts and opinions?

I'm lookin at getting a new H/U because my JVC is shitting out on me. (Nav died and now the clock is wrong....)

The JVC also has really low RCA voltage (1 volt) and was picky about what videos and songs it would play. Plus it couldn't link with my iPhone 4S...

I don't need the built in nav anymore because I have an iphone that works just fine, so I can save money on a head that way.

I use SD and USB for storage currently so it would be nice to be able to use that in the new radio as well.

I also don't want all the buttons/knobs and shit on the side or the exposed cd slot. I like the nice clean look of just a few buttons across the bottom with a larger screen.

Anything else in the $500 range that would be better?

The X8500BHS is not getting replaced with a 2014 model, and I don't know why yet. Pioneer has new DVD double DINs coming out this month.

Good sound quality, not fussy about video types and resolutions etc?

Can you use a GPS app on your phone through it (such as google maps?)

Well, did some more research and watched some videos and stuff...

Bought it from SonicElectronix with the sale promo code they have for november. Got it for $494 and change.

Then spent $34 on ebay to get the iphone 4s cable to use the appradio mode and be able to use the GPS on my phone through the radio as well as a parking brake bypass so I can have video and such on while going down the road without having to put in a toggle switch to make it think it has the parking brake set.

I've hated my JVC since I got it. And none of the new ones tickled my fancy.
