I cant make up my mind if i want a regular aftermarke headunit, or a flip out screen kind. Are the screens worth it.. how many of you use them?

What would you get for under 1400? :dunno:

I just bought an Alpine CDA-7894 last night. I can't wait until I get it installed.

It's a nice unit but it doesn't have any kind of flip-out screen.

I'm looking at the Alpine 7998. Looks like it has all the features I am looking for. It also lets you program time delay so you can better set the stereo image. Runs around $750.

Two of my brothers had the flip out screens. One did video, the other Nav. I don't have/need either. Too complicated to use as a basic headunit. Both of them were stolen too.

the 7998 flips out too...it flips out when u first start the car...and retracts when u turn your car off...the only problem is that the screen isnt that big...but otherwise...i have no complaints

i had the 7998. I think it's the best HU on the market.

I sold it because i wanted something new, now i've got the one with the flip out screef from alpine in combination with the alpine dvd player

get the 7998 if you needn't a flip out screen
