Boss Audio BV7980
Released October, 2008
The Pros:Controls are intuitive and easy to find when you're driving. Screen is sharp and detailed, everything looks very crisp. Plenty of power output to drive aftermarket speakers without needing an amp.
The Cons:Knob is flush with the panel and hard to turn without accidentally pressing it. Display is hard to read in sunlight.

The Audio BV7980 also includes a USB port, unlike its counterpart, the BV7970. Although priced at $219.95, approximately $50 over its predecessors, it is considered a worthwhile investment due to its ability to provide an optimal viewing experience that doesn’t rely on squinting eyes and perfect lighting for a good experience. Furthermore, the Boss Audio BV7980 also features a motorized slide-down full detachable panel, a PLL synthesized AM/FM tuner, and NTSC/PAL compatibility.
