Summary: There is a slight learning curve but after that its great and easy to use. Remote is awesome and the Ipod connection charges my Ipod as it plays. Make sure you have high quality Mp3s or else you will hear the flaws with this deck. My music sucked so I had to redo the bit rates at which it was stored at. Yeah it was a pain! After that it is awesome! Got the Clarion BLT 370 bluetooth connector to go with this deck as well.
