Seems to be an excellent unit.


I wanted to add siriusxm to my 2003 Honda Civic. With a siriusxm tuner this was the least expensive unit I found. It is a bargain considering it's price. This is a great little unit.About me... Casual listener

Usb port is a great feature

Small buttons doing multiple functions

This is a nice unit buy todays standards but with all the features it has it is more complicated to use than older models. I don't like that you have to scroll through so many options just to get to the radio.About me... Avid listener

It looks good, works good , has good sound

complicated to operate but no more than any other unit out there
