Summary: I have this head unit with the JVC KS-BTA200 Bluetooth adapter . After using this head unit for a few years in first my '97 Pontiac Grand Prix GTP and now in my 2006 Nissan Altima SER I have listed the pro's and con's below: Pros: Navigation software works very well (when it works - see Cons) Easy...
