: Does anyone here have the Pioneer DEH-2100IB?

My sister recently bought a new car and its built-in stereo lacks the Line-In her previous car stereo had.

I am planning on buying her an iPod friendly car stereo for her birthday and this one in particular caught my eye:

Pioneer - 50W x 4 MOSFET Apple iPod-Ready In-Dash CD Deck with MP3 Playback - DEH-2100IB (http://www.bestbuy.com/site/olspage.jsp?skuId=9197184&st=DEH-2100IB&lp=1&type=product&cp=1&id=1218056225709) (US Site)

Mostly because the iPod doesn't connect through the line-in, but connects through an iPod docking cable that is run to the glove compartment very effectively concealing the iPod.

The interface looks to be atrocious, but the iPod integration looks great.

Has anyone encountered this model or can recommend an alternative?
