John, Woking Normal!

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
The ability to put an Ipod Touch inside the unit is great. Good sound quality and the remote enables ease of operation.
Bad points:
Replacing the face is fiddly. The enter function on the volume control knob is not without mishap!

john, dymchurch customer service matters

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
The head unit does what it is supposed to do and does it very well.
Bad points:
The unit comes with a software package called "sensme ". I cannot get the software to work with my I-pod nano and after calling Sony customer service TWICE at my expense and being promised a call back TWICE, I still have not been contacted and still cannot use the sensme function on the head unit which is very very annoying as I feel as though I have just been brushed aside by a careless corporation. This is the first time I have bought a Sony product and am thinking that it will now be the last.

Roger, Leeds

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
The amount of flexibility to allow me to the sound up exactly as i want it, the massive improvement in sound quality through the cars original speaker system, the iPod interface and the fact there are no cables evident, the phone connectivity and functionality is really good
Bad points:
Integral microphone is not very good when making calls, including a remote microphone as standard would help.
I have always found Sony car stereos very awkward to tune radio stations manually and this one is no different. I have had several over 24 years of driving both after market and as OEM equipment and they have all been the same

John, Washington, Tyne and Wear Just an average guy.

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Using an iPod, you can have your entire audio collection available for play in your car. This is by far its best selling point, as is the fact that your iPod is out of sight.
It works very well with a thumb drive, just as good as an iPod at a fraction of the price.
Using bluetooth it links faultlessly with my iPhone 3GS.
The display is good and clear, if a little on the small side, and carries a lot of information about the track being played.
The audio stage can be tuned to the finest degree to suit just about anyone, and the sound is very good. In fact, some of the adjustments possible are quite complex. You will need to spend some time to get this right (if you're that bothered).
I was told it proved easy to install due to the fact that it was replacing an already non-standard audio unit (a Kenwood minidisc player).
Bad points:
It may be just me failing to get to grips with its finer points, but it does not display radio text (if I'm wrong on this, someone please tell me). It gives you the station but that's all. I'd have thought something of this standard would at least have given you programme information.
The SensMe facility is very gimmicky and can, in fact, be a nuisance until you learn how to cancel it. For me it serves no useful purpose. I don't listen to randomly chosen tracks even if they are all supposed to be in the same 'mood'.
The manual is not the best I've seen.
