Best place for install? (iPhone integration)

Guys,

I'm debating whether to get a Dension 100 or a BSW DICE and wondering who 'the community' recommends to do the install in the GTA (Toronto)...

I ordered a USA SPEC PA12, (search amazon.com) cost me about 130$, and was a simple install in the trunk. I have a spare ipod and just keep it in my trunk at all times, and it charges it too!

Thanks, that's interesting, but I need to have the cable available in the compartment above the ash try. So far I've been recommended Kromer and Nu-Tek. While Nu-Tek is a hulluva love cheaper, they have mixed reviews.

Not yet :-(

I've been distracted with other things... front brakes and winter rubber are priority. I'll know better in a few weeks.

I have talked to Vince and Auto F/X on Dupont/Dufferin, they seem to be pretty reasonable. I have to give them a deposit and book an appointment.

Another thing is actually getting an iPhone 4, which has proven to be rather difficult :-( My 3G will have to do for now.

The cable is 15ft long, you can run it to your sunglass compartment no problem.

Buy that, and take it to Chase audio in Scarborough, they'll install it for you properly, shouldn't take more than an hour.
