I own this stereo purely because when I bought a new car in April, this was the head unit the previous owner had put in it.
At first I didn't know that it was anything other than a standard CD player/radio and was looking at putting the stereo from my old car in before it was sold as it had a USB plug on it and I was used to having a variety of music available to me without having loads of CDs cluttering up my car.
It was only when I went into the glovebox for the first time that I noticed that there were three leads in there which appeared to be connected to the stereo. These were an IPod connector, a USB interface and a USB lead (I still don't know what this is for, not having the instructions). I'm probably one the few people who doesn't have an IPod, so I was left to try out the USB stick.
With a maximum output of 4 x 50w the sound is very clear even using the cars standard speaker system.
The stereo comes with a flip down fully detachable face plate which comes with a soft storage bag.
With the USB memory stick plugged in, it's just a case of tapping the rotary control up or down to switch albums or left & right to change tracks.
To change modes, you press the source button and spin the control to choose the option you want, then pressing the rotary control in to select.
It also has the option of adding a CD changer to it, if an Ipod & USB memory doesn't fulfil your musical needs.
The radio has FM, LW & MW frequency with preset storage available on all three.
A bluetooth hands free control is available as an optional extra.
I think this is a great stereo for a car, and recommended the newer version to my younger brother when he was upgrading his standard head unit.
My only complaint is that sometimes the rotary knob used for switching between sources, or music tracks can be a little over sensitive so you find it's gone onto a menu you didn't want.
