Summary: I purchased this unit in March 2011. All the reviews and the hype are true. This thing is the Bee's Knees. Complaints about the remote are silly and in my case the remote is the only way to control the head unit. That is because when I touch the face-plate controls on the right side of the unit, it blacks out and locks up. I can't control anything including turning it off, not with the remote or the wheel controls.
