Pros: AI Net for backwards compatibility, all the other modules you can add!
Cons: I hate the fact that the illumination is either blue buttons and red, or all red. It would be nice to have the all blue option as well.
Comments: The CDA-9885 has tons of flexibility with the available modules, and it is backward compatible with most legacy AI Net components. I have my old XM module hooked to it. Also the BT-350 for streaming audio from my Blackberry and hands free cell use.
