    Im looking for in dash head units with built in hard drives. The Sony and Pioneer units are pretty much what I'm looking for, but with a bigger hard drive. The Alpine HDA-5460 is the closest I;ve found to what I need, but it has no built in tuner. Anyones have any suggestions?

    Eclipse makes some.

    Best way is to do the Alpine + Ipod thingy. Much more space and encoding options.

    James,

    I see that you've already looked at the Alpine HDA-5460. Crutchfield has a sale going on for that model for under $300.00 with a 10% off coupon. But, I guess that still doesn't solve your issue of having no tuner. Perhaps a small separate reciever for just radio. . .

    Good luck!

    The HDA-5460 has software problems and had been recalled. I would not use it.
