Released May, 2008
The Pros:Great price for such a wide range of features, good value. Screen maximizes the available space, nice large viewing area. Functions don't take long to work out, overall very intuitive.
The Cons:Lacks a lot of hardware buttons, which means having to look at the screen while driving to tap through menus. Doesn't play WMA files or any other formats beyond MP3. Doesn't come with a remote control, hard to find one that works with it.

It supports DVD, DivX, CD, CD-R/RW, and MP3 playback formats and has a 3-band SQ3 equalizer and built-in AM/FM tuner. The CQ-VW100U is compatible with iPod adapters, Satellite Radio and can also be connected to a CD changer. It also has a rearview camera input and can be used with the optional Bluetooth hands-free kit to take phone calls. The receiver required double-DIN mounting and comes with a 1 year limited warranty. The CQ-VW100U is less advanced than Panasonic's CQ-VX100U since it lacks the detachable front panel and ignition-linked monitor retraction that comes with CQ-VX100U.
