It'* nice for a GM sized one, you don't need an adaptor, and it'* easy to use with gloved hands etc. Huge screen real estate, but you do give up some features. Anything from Rockford Fosgate, Eclipse, Alpine, Pioneer (normal sized) head units in that range have more features. At that point they all sound good, it'* just how many toys do you want. MP3 capability is nice as well.

This one will play burned CD'* as well, but only in normal audio cd format.

Most of their MP3 units start @ 300, they have a special display on high end models ($600+) that is larger then the deck area, and pops out and up.

No GM fit cd player that i know of does MP3 cd'*.

Ol' Blue eye'* has the deck you're looking for, i had the 44dh in my old car, and it worked ok. but it did have to be fixed in the faceplate a few times.

ja pioneer ist gut!

I like mine anyways. Mp3'*, CD-R'*, CD-RW'*, WMA'*, etc..

Great player for the money. I had an alpine several cars ago, I like it alot but thought it was a little pricey. The Pioneer Premier series have a two year warranty (when installed through an authorized dealer)

Here'* how i recommend Head Units choosing to people. First set a budget, and you'll need extra over the price for either installation, or fit kits/harnesses.

Installation should be free at any good shop, major chains will do it most of the time too, a fit kit and harnesses and all will run about $20-30 as well.

First look for the technical features you'll need. All head units have pretty much the same speaker level output power. This is the 50x4 you see. If you're building a multi-amp system multiple high level pre-outs will be required, or MP3/WMA file compatability. Some headunits can be too deep, but 95% of them will fit fine.

Once you get a top 5 or 10 or whatever, use them. Find the ones that are most intuitive to you, the buttons or ***** you like. The difference between your volume being button controlled, or **** controlled can make all the difference. Some people like the lights to match the dash, some decks allow you to change the color. Do you like a face plate that moves to insert the CD or do you want an exposed cd bay? Lotsa cool things.
