Price: $360.00
Pros: audio setting are incredible. i can dial in all my speakers even the ability to to tell the head unit what speakers i have and where they are..IE (4x6 in dash and 6.5 in rear 10in sub) RDS radio description is a plus. ipod search is awesome but takes some getting use to. I hooked up a back up cam and i can see what is on the screen easily. big enough screen to read clearly read txt
Cons: cant Bluetooth audio to the head unit. if streaming Bluetooth audio is a deal breaker by the 701 and add Bluetooth module or buy or find bt900
Recommended? Yes

Comments: i fit the head unit In a quadratec Ivault

Price: $400.00
Pros: No moving parts to break, great display, remote control, Bluetooth capable, rear camera capable
Cons: No removable face plate
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Great deck, ran the ipod wire behind dash and through vents for windshield defrost, now I just plug in my phone and lay it on top of dash. Actual model of my deck is KIV 701. Pretty sure it's very similar to the KIV BT 901.

Price: $274.99
Pros: Ipod integration, selectable key color, full color 3" display, multitude of audio options, one of the few HU's that supports a USB terminal, Internet updatable
Cons: Can only hook up HD Radio or Satellite Radio, not both at the same time; Has a few quirky mess-ups, could easily be fixed with a firmware update (If Kenwood would release one...)
Recommended? Yes

Comments: This unit had everything I was looking for, but mainly iPod integration, which works amazingly. It's just like surfing through your iPod on the head unit, you can select Artists, Playlists, Songs, etc. The search function also works extremely well, you can type in the first three letters of a song and find it in seconds. The unit does mess up every once in awhile i.e. not displaying album art, doesn't recognize ipod, etc, but they're minor things that can be fixed with a firmware update. Great product, pretty expensive compared to others, but this thing is PACKED with features. Also comes with BT built in, very clear and works well with my retro phone. Would highly recommend it.
