Price: $299.99
Pros: Easy to use, built in blutooth, wireless remote, 3 preouts...
Cons: atm blutooth music streaming only plays out of the front speakers, Kenwood is working on a fix
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Great headunit for someone in the market! The main reason I purchased it is because you can turn off ipod controls. Beings I have my ipad mounted infront of my deck, this is important.

Pros: all the little gizmos in the kenwood software.
Cons: not having traditional buttons for presets.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: i like this deck so much that i pulled it out of my truck right after i wrecked it, it produces great sound with junk speakers, loads of bass, works great with i pod, just plug the ipod in and you can mess with the ipod directly on the decks screen.

Comments: knobs always feel like they're about to break them off, but i guess thats how their supposed to work. that is my only complaint however. great product, wiring wasn't too difficult. make sure you pay attention to the manuel when installing. USB with ipod keeps charge
