Released June, 2007
The Pros:Attractive and sleek looking design that is built to impresses. Excellent clarity in the audio that makes the most of OEM speakers. Remote control is useful and built to be easy to handle even while driving.
The Cons:Only has an 8 character display limiting the amount of information you can see at a time. Buttons and controls are smaller than they could be, difficult to use with gloves on. Very hard to seek to the next station without accidentally hitting a preset button.
