Released January, 2011
The Pros:FM quality is very good and clear, picks up weak signals. HD radio is dramatically better than regular radio, very clear and superior stereo effect. Connections to a USB storage device is fast and flawless.
The Cons:HD signals drop out completely when signal is weak. Menu use is cumbersome and awkward, very counter-intuitive. Buttons are too small, difficult to find while driving.
