Released November, 2007
The Pros:Makes the most of OEM factory speakers for a great, detailed sound. Colored backlighting looks impressive at night. Good value for such a high-quality audio output, priced fairly low.
The Cons:Can't control a connected iPod from the iPod itself, need to use the head unit's controls. Takes a long time to get used to how the buttons are assigned. Hard to figure out many of the basic functions like updating the time.
