Sony Xplod CDX-GT530UI
Released February, 2009
The Pros:Installation is easy enough for amateurs. Easy to find the track you're looking for, good search functions. Good support for a variety of audio codecs.
The Cons:EQ menus are buried deep and very awkward, can't really adjust them on the fly.
The Sony Xplod CDX-GT530UI head unit is a slightly more expensive version of its sister product, the CDX-GT430U and unlike the other product, it has a detachable faceplate, making it a great product for those who want to hide the faceplate to deter theft and car break ins.
