Released January, 2008
The Pros:Displays a good range of information about the track being played. Volume knob is large and comfortable, easy to quickly adjust as you drive. Fonts on the small LCD are large and easy to read.
The Cons:Screen seems a little small, cuts off text and is dwarfed by the rest of the faceplate's features. Takes a long time for the track name to appear once it starts playing, slowly scrolls out. "back" and "next" buttons are small and hard to press.
