    tv head unit

    Hi a few years back i had a tv head unit in my car it was a kenwood touch screen tv. Im now after another headunit for my s3. As it been so long since iv had a tv in my car i was wondering if someone can clear a few things up for me.

    My old kenwood had a tv tuner that you had to hide (it was the size of a suitcase) do the new ones come with the tuner in the head unit now.

    My old tv used to slide away into the dash do the new ones come with a clip of type screen as i dont fancy avin the screen in the car at all times as its a bit of a god send for the ba$%rds that tryed to nick the old one i had.(even tho i did have some alarm fob type thing as a code for it)

    Im also in need of one that will play mp3s or even better DVD disc full of mp3s

    sorry to sound a bit out of date but im getting old

    cheers

    And just for the record can some tell me the model of my old kenwood screen all i can remember is that it cost me 1000 quid from halfords about 6 years ago. Id have the same screen again if i could remove it of a evening.

    try www.caraudiodirect.com I have an alpine and went for the single din for security issue. However it looks like you can remove the screen on some of the double dins. I like my alpine but will probably replace it in the near future.

    you will probably need to buy a tuner, its not often they are included. Single din is like the kenwood above ( audi concert ?? ) the double din is twice as wide ( symphony ?? )
