    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:less than 1 day

    Pros:

    Small, flexible. Fits well in the dash board of my old Citroën.
    Nice crisp screen. Unlike many of the other similar products, this one has a pixel-based LCD and fits a lot of information on-screen.
    The remote has nice rubbery buttons.
    Comes with the cable you need to connect any MP3 player
    Skips between songs fairly quickly
    Saves the frequency between shutdowns.

    Cons:

    Somewhat lacking in settings. There are two buttons on the remote that only display "FREQ" and "LABEL" on the display, and since there is no manual included I cannot say what these buttons do.
    As far as I can tell, there is no way to play a random song from any of multiple folders. It can randomize within a folder.
    Remote reception is terrible. One really has to point the remote AT the device at a short range to make it work. Most of the functions (like volume control) can only be accessed through the remote.

    OtherThoughts:

    The frequency is adjustable in 0.1MHz increments.
    The reception isn't great, but my cigarette jack is a bit away from the stereo. It may be better for you, depending on car, head unit and which frequency you select.

    Bottomline:

    Not a bad purchase. Radio isn't the ideal way to get music to your speakers, but this device does the job as well as I would expect any device to do it.
