I had decided on either this stereo or the JVC KD-A925BT. I chose this stereo because I liked the 4 line text display and the "tune tray" The bluetooth is great, connects to anything I've tried. I can read the display easily from any angle in any lighting conditions. It's fairly easy to navigate and find what I want to play. I wouldn't buy this again because of one really irritating feature. I loaded up my USB thumb drive with some music, but mostly Audiobooks, Lectures, Things with long (over an hour) tracks. The problem lies in the fact that it doesn't remember where it last played, in a USB drive, after the car has been turned off. Fast forward is not really that fast. It can take you 10 minutes to fast forward one hour into a track, 10 minutes with your finger on the button. Some books I listen to have tracks that range from 1 to 10 hours. For me, missing such a basic feature is just plain poor design. No where in the owners manual did it say that. I had to get with customer service to see if somehow I was missing something. They told me that is normal and this car stereo will not remember playback position from a USB thumbdrive.... (it will from an ipod) I thought Sony should have done a much better job with this. I should have went with the JVC. How about someone do a car stereo with interchangeable faces. From time to time if I'd like to upgrade I can buy an new face that has new features or whatever instead of pulling the dash apart every time i'd like a change.
