    Generally I would recommend one with the USB control, they usually have a better ipod interface, and you can usually control the ipod from your faceplate and stow the ipod in your glove box or something. Also the USB should charge your ipod. The unit that is ipod ready usually requires you to buy an accessory adapter to connect your ipod in the same manner as the usb unit would, which is around $50. I can't personally comment on either radio since I havn't used either, but I would strongly recommend going to crutchfield.com and doing some research on them. They usually have lots more specific info on models, and pretty good customer reviews. Good luck

    so usb is better than an actual apple ipod ready adapter, which im assuming apple makes. oh ok ill look into it then. i wanna be able to control it from the radio, but i also don't mind using the aux and just skipping tracks.
