The Pros:HD radio comes in crystal clear and with well-defined stereo. Controls take very little time to get used to. Easy to work with while driving, good file navigation.
The Cons:Missing support for AAC files through anything other than a proper iPod.

They are otherwise identical, with the same faceplate and feature sets. A USB port enables 2-way iPod/iPhone control and includes an external mode for the iPhone and iPod Touch. iTunes tagging is also built in. Both MP3 and WMA files can be played from a CD, and dual AUX inputs are available for input from a wide variety of portable devices. Output runs through a 4 channel MOSFET filter at 50 watts per channel, and a 7 band iEQ balances the audio to ensure proper tone.
