Summary: The best update I have made to my car. Turned a 13 year old car into a bluetooth driven animal! I can talk on the phone through the included mic. I routed the mic line under the dash fascia and mounted near the sun visor and now have crystal clear calls on both sides. The radio and all it's features work well and are easy to adjust. The remote is not needed but a nice toy.
Summary: The interface will drive you insane if you use it to search for songs. If you turn the selector knob at any speed below a crawl, the display will revert to showing you where you are in the list numerically (e.g. 0001/1234). This even happens on internal system menus! I have used the downloadable software to index my music, so it is able to search by artist, genre, title, etc, but you will wreck your car if you try it in traffic.
Amazing product for the price especially if you get it for $44 like I did!

Summary: Works amazingly in even in my very old noisy car. Would definitely recommend this item to a friend! Quite easy to set up and I didn't even have to cut any wires. Just stripped the ones one this stereo and pushed them into the old plug that was in the old stereo!
Summary: The only real downside, is that pandora will take precedence over everything. I love having the USB to charge my phone but even on USB mode pandora will still play. For the first time plugging in to with USB deny it access to pandora and it will solve your problems. Also, in USB mode you can not answer call from your phone only place them, you can only use the taking and making calls feature from Bluetooth. Which USB takes precedence over Bluetooth.
