One of the best mods for my car, much needed update from factory unit
I have a 2005 RSX Type-S that came with a standard Bose cd player. No USB or bluetooth connectivity - such a pain! I found this Sony unit as an open box for around $80-90 and gave it a shot. I used a harness with this so it would still use my car's factory amp and sub. The sound quality was just as good as the factory unit, but the connectivity was so much better. Just hold my phone up to the volume knob and NFC automatically connects my phone via bluetooth. Play my spotify playlists, ready to go. Even if I'm using Google Maps, not having to look down and hear the GPS talk through your speakers is so much nicer so you aren't driving distracted. While it's not a cool touch screen unit, it's RGB, so you can change colors of the display to match your car's interior lighting or do something custom. You can also connect a Mic and set it up for hands free callign, but I didn't try to use that. I'm overall very happy with the purchase.
