Released April, 2009
The Pros:Nice lines and overall design, can change the color to match your dash lights. Sound quality is enhanced by advanced settings, can shape the tone to the car size and specific speakers. Display is readable both day and night.
The Cons:Selecting a radio station preset is unnecessarily complicated. Manual tells you how to navigate the functions, but not what the functions do. Difficult to establish a Bluetooth connection.
