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.
