Pros LOW Price, easy to use, FM tuner is actually good
Cons Remote use is wonky, mounting kit is almost unusable, Seek is limited to Songs and not Artists
Summary This is my third reciever, Previous 2 were the original SkiFi and the original Roady, both for XM. This unit is a mixed bag, audio quality is good, it's very cheap after rebate, and the FM Tuner works better than most stand-alone products. The mounting kit included however is very jank. I had to mount it to the interior of my instrument cluster, the suction cup just will not stick to vinyl and heat just kills the suction. It covers up my rpm gauge, no big deal, and it is in a handy location if it is just you in the car, but for other users it's not much fun, as they cant see whats playing or use the remote.
Pros Small and doubles as a tiny space heater in the winter
Cons After 4 months it stopped working, buttons too small, remote defective from factory
Summary Four months after purchasing the radio it stopped working completely. They have very good customer service that's where the extra point came from... The sound quality of the FM Tuner is terrible. The remote is defective from the factory, the battery doesn't fit correctly and they won't replace it. The buttons seem to be made for a child. Gets extremely hot. Suction cup doesn't stay stuck (to a clean window) for more than 24 hours. The radio is worthless with no redeming factors don't waste your money...

Pros compact and portable
Cons antenna signal is sometimes lost and text display should also come in blue
"This thing is a total piece of garbage. This is the second one I've had since the first one tanked"on by Dean Danger
Pros Ease of installation
Cons Everything but ease of installation
Summary Lousy worthless piece of junk. The first one tanked after about two weeks of very problematic use and the second one has lasted two days and now it's a paper weight. I work in the industry and I would be embarrassed to even suggest this product to any of my clients. i feel that I've been totally ripped off. Don't buy this product!
Pros compact, remote, suction mount works great for me and has for 2 years now with out a problem. Remote works fine for me too..
Cons No complaints. I give this product 5 stars!
