Released February, 2009
The Pros:CD playback is reliable, seems to work with almost all discs. MP3 playback is great, fills out the compressed sound nicely. Output is strong enough to drive aftermarket speakers without needing an additional amp.
The Cons:IPod control is a bit awkward, takes many steps to find the song you want. Radio reception is fairly poor, has a tough time with weaker signals. Faceplate is a little awkward to attach and detach.
