WOW

February 7, 2006

I still can't get over how good this sounds. Forget those 3rd party ones that sound terrible, this is the real thing ! buy them fast because the 2006 models are going to take them over soon and it will be hard to find them for old decks.

Could take it or leave it

January 23, 2006

It is a great concept, but the controls are sort of screwie. You can only search for artists, playlists and albums. the shuffle doesn't stay on once the radio is turned off. you cannot search for a playlist, artist, or album while the shuffle is on. This is the best price i've seen though

Great product and easy to install. Allows you to connect your iPod to your car stereo. If you have an iPod and an alpine head-unit this is the accessory to buy.
