Price: $200.00
Pros: Simple interface. Easy to use while driving without having to look at it. Good power and sound quality. Front auxiliary input. Bluetooth capable with nothing more to buy.
Cons: Menu can be difficult to navigate. I was never able to get the USB to work, even though I followed the instructions and tried several different flash drives. CD skips over rough roads, but this is probably just a Jeep problem. It would most likely work fine in smoother riding vehicles. Bluetooth is basically useless in a Jeep at freeway speeds because of all the road and wind noise.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: I bought this unit as a hands-free cell phone solution when the law was passed in California prohibiting handheld cell phone use while driving. It works reasonably well for that purpose, as long as you're driving at around-town speeds, but road noise makes a conversation impossible at high speeds. The person on the other end hears nothing but noise. Experimenting with microphone placement made no noticeable difference. Sound quality is very good and power output is above average, but a CD will skip over rough roads. Fortunately, it has a front auxiliary input, so I use my iPod most of the time. Radio reception is decent. The ability to use a USB flash drive to store music would be a great feature if it worked, but all I ever got was errors, regardless of which flash drive I tried to use.

All things considered, I think it's a pretty good unit. It just has a few quirks that make it somewhat less than ideal for use in a Jeep. But I haven't found a head unit yet that doesn't have any, so this one is as good as any.
