Released January, 2006
The Pros:Color OEL screen looks really cool, impressive to anyone who sees it. Built-in Bluetooth works great, connects right away and doesn't drop. EQ really gives you good control over how everything sounds.
The Cons:Contact list doesn't always transfer over, depending on the phone.

It can also seamlessly play music from an ipod and is satellite radio-ready. This unit has a vivid Organic EL (electroluminescent) display that is customizable with downloadable software. A new built-in AUX input has been added for connecting many devices such as digital music players. Using an included mic, Auto-EQ fine-tunes your unit by monitoring your car's acoustics, and Auto Time Alignment compensates for various different speaker distances so music reaches your ears at the same time. It also has 50 W x 4 MOSFET speaker power and three 5 V pre-outs for a clean amp signal and more detailed highs and lows. The best feature seems to be the fact that with a Bluetooth-capable cell phone, you can make/accept calls, talk, and hang up, all without touching your cell phone. This is a good quality, functional, car audio head unit at a reasonable price, and comes with a 10-key card remote.
