Summary: Has everything I needed in a car stereo plus a few extras I'm enjoying. Really like the bluetooth functions, and the fact that I can play a homemade mp3 or cd makes it even better. Still getting used to the controls, but seems like it's going to work out great.
Summary: Easy to use audio features, easy to sync. bluetooth device. Powerful enough to run aftermarket speakers. Love the sub out feaure. You better have a quiet vehicle, the speaker for the bluetooth is behind the faceplate. Mine is in my wife's Volvo so it works well. I'll look for something with a remote mic. for my F250. Overall I am very happy.
Summary: The Sony MEX BT-2500 is a good option for those looking to spend no more than $200 on a Bluetooth-enabled in-car stereo. Its straightforward design and intuitive controls make it easy to use, but its limited calling capabilities and poor outgoing sound quality let it down.
Summary: Researched beforehand and knew that it wouldn't mix my cocktails, walk my dogs, and do my oil changes. Bluetooth capacity is limited to conducting phone calls through the car speakers and redialing only, but this was foreclosed in the description and works like a charm. LOVE dialing a phone number and then being able to set the phone down and talk.
Full hands-free functionality would be nice, however...

Summary: I did some pre-purchase research for an A2DP-capable headend unit that is reasonably priced, and this was one of the few that I saw. A key factor for me was the capability to stream audio from my phone to the headend unit, in addition to take phone calls thru the unit. This product does all of that nicely. But, it certainly would be nice to see the phone number displayed on the unit when an incoming call arrives, as well as enter phone numbers from it.
