Summary: We have a 26' Four Winns 258 Vista that we installed this little toy on and we LOVE it!!! the Bluetooth is what we use most from phone to radio allowing us any of our apps to come through the boat speakers, Jango, NOAA Weather, Navionics chartplotter ALL work great through the unit.
Summary: It seems like Sony makes an awesome head unit, then turns out junk for a couple years, then comes out with another awesome head unit. This one is awesome, or close to it. Lots of tools for customizing the sound exist, one simply holds down the select knob for a moment or two.
Summary: I bought this for my '94 F350 so I could use the bluetooth for hands free calling. The bluetooth functionally works great, plus I can play songs off my Droid over my stereo. Also, most of my music is stored on a USB drive, so I can easily play everything with the front USB input.
Great head unit if you're not ready to go digital only

Summary: I went with this over the latest (and amazing) DSX 310 BT. The DSX is better for display clarity and for newest technology and ipod / sony walkman users exclusively. But I still need an AUX in and usb in. Plus Bluetooth. So this is my unit. Same exact "guts" as the newer units anyway.
Summary: With ordering Sony's MEX-BT5700U, I sought to upgrade my '93 Civic's Sony CDX-M620 Active Black Panel (ABP) unit. (Sony should really reconsider bringing this one back, upgraded with the 5700's bells and whistles.
Great Features - Horrible Interface - Display is unreadable - don't buy!!!

Summary: I have had this deck for about 4 months and generally like the features, but I have to say that I would not buy it again because the interface is absolutely TERRIBLE. The buttons are small and don't make sense - the blue LED display might look cool in a showroom, but it is nearly invisible in real...
Summary: After buying the dash kit for my car and the cables needed, and this stereo, it was perfect. I have an iPhone4, and this stereo works perfectly with it. As for playing music, you can either do it through a USB cable, an Aux cable, Bluetooth, CD, or your regular radio.
