Summary: I recently bought this stereo and was really surprised with all the features it has for such a low price. I have used the bluetooth and am able to voice dial and I also have it where it tells me who is calling through the phone's speaker, so there is no need for the caller i.d.
Summary: Works well. Really hands free when *receiving* calls. (but won't display who calls) It has several inbuilt operations, but not intuitive, so you need to dig the manual. Plays all CDs well ; Does the job!!
I forgot what I didn't like about Sony, and remembered what I did.

Summary: I like Sony innovations, but when they screw something up, it's almost as if aliens were designing the thing you don't like, that's how foreign its utility seems to you. Let me give you an example. The radio has a detachable face. It is impossible to put this thing back on with one hand in the dark.
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.
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.
Summary: Sony made a big marketing mistake with this unit. It does not support voice commands, voice tags, voice dialing, or any handsfree calling at all, regardless of what capabilities your phone has. The ONLY handsfree call you can make from the unit is last number redial.
