Car entertainment system for S3 - impossible :-/
My sprint blue S3 should arrive any day now (first sprint blue in Israel :ninja:) and i've been trying, over the passed months of waiting, to decide what to do with an entertainment system. The bottom line is that there is nothing out there even remotely close to being good enough. Mind you, it's not that i have any exotic requirements - i'd just like a HD based system (since i have GBs of music and don't want to swap CDs while driving) with touch screen to allow me to play music, browse my contact list over BT, possibly sat nav and a movie now and then. Options:
1) RNS-E: I actually bought this and canceled when i learned about the 400 file limit on the flash cards. What the hell? Also, no touch screen (but was willing to let this slide)
2) CarPC: The main issue here is the screen. While some companies make semi-decent screens (lilliput/xenarc) i have yet to find A3/S3 adapters to make this look OEM and not some hack job. The last thing i want is a hacked up dashboard. Isn't 2DIN supposed to be a standard?
3) Alpine/Kenwood/Pioneer/Clarion/etc: While these systems come close, they each have some glaring defect. For example, i was told the Alpine would do everything i want but "you have to wait a minute and a half for it to sync contacts when you start up the vehicle" (during which you can't use the phone). Jesus.
Is the situation really this bad? Has anyone mounted a decent looking, flexible car entertainment system in their A3/S3?
