Summary: I really do love this deck. We use the SD card slot exclusively, so I cannot comment on radio reception, CD player, etc. Just load up the SD card, hit shuffle and let it rip when out on the water.
Summary: The product died in 6 months - Installed in a boat that was covered and used only a few times in the 6 months. The BOSS company does not cover shipping for the one year warranty... In fact, the company requires one to send a 20$ check to cover return shipping. That's 1/4 of the cost of the radio.... Only to get only junk radio.... Not very logical. Pay a few more $$$ and get a quality radio, instead of having an empty hole in your console like I do now.
Summary: Excellent radio for the money. I had a more expensive Clarion which only lasted 2 years... so I decided to buy a cheaper radio... but am thoroughly impressed with the capabilities and performance. Easy installation and good directions included.
