The Pros:Excellent reception, makes the most of faint signals. Very simple to install, entry-level users can handle it. Sound quality of the output is very good, excellent fidelity.
The Cons:Doesn't provide RDS info for normal radio stations, HD only. A bit bulky, sometimes difficult to find a mounting spot for installation. Unit is perfectly smooth with no place for screws, need to be creative about anchoring it.
