I'll have to look this one up...

Yeah, I agree on that.  Knowing that I'm tempted to upgrade the truck, I'm not 
so anxious to upgrade the radio, but then again the factor CD player is 
kaput, and that won't help resale.  If I do upgrade the head unit, it would 
be a CD player that can control a trunk-mounted CD changer (or MP3 jukebox, 
why doesn't someone make one like this, Pioneer and Sony??) Not that a new 
head unit is going to boost resale, but having my in-dash CD player back 
would be handy.

Remember the Empeg project?  Linux in-dash tuner/player?  I forget who bought 
it out, but they pretty much canned it after purchase.  Sucks.  I wanted one.
