Released April, 2010
The Pros:Audio has clarity that is much better than factory-installed OEM head units. Capable of good volume output without the help of an additional amplifier. Reads most CDs, even burned or scratched ones.
The Cons:Takes a few seconds longer than usual to load a CD. Labels on the buttons are very hard to read in sunlight, need to pretty much know what they are ahead of time. Display looks pretty boring, blocky text is unappealing.
The Boss 636CA/RDS636CA is a basic car head-unit that fits into a 1-DIN slot. This is the same as the Boss 634CA/RDS634CA, but has added support for playing MP3 files from a burned CD. The model that follows, the Boss 637UA/RDS637UA, has a redesigned front panel that includes a USB port and works with a higher power output.
