I finally did it. I am actually sitting in Circuit City right now as they are installing my unit. I went with the Audiovox XCS9 unit.

The wires should be hidden from behind and I'll still be able to use my cig lighter to charge my phone if needed.

It looks better centered instead of on the side. I like things balanced (I'm a libra
