Decent deal, but check your local Bestbuy for open box items. I know where I live there's 3 best buys on my way home from work and all of them have a better CD player that's open box, same price, and in excellent condition that is better than this deal. They all include bluetooth.
Rep unto others as you would have them Rep unto you.
Yet it is not our part to master all the tides of the world,
but to do what is in us for the succour of those years wherein we are set,
Uprooting the evil in the fields that we know,
So that those who live after may have clean earth to till.

I purchased this in February 2013 for the same price from Best Buy.
I have a very short USB drive that almost sits flush to radio for my music, haven't touched the CD player part of it since I got the USB drive.
I have hooked up my Android (Old Epic 4G) and it will charge it and play the music from the SD card.
Radio controls are a bit complicated, but once set up it works great and you probably won't be making any changes to the settings from day to day after the initial setup.
This replaced the factory radio with great results.
The Screen is BRIGHT at NIGHT, the DIM function is a joke (it was one of the CONS from reading the reviews when I purchased it.
No BlueTooth (as mentioned before).
Purchased wiring harness and Radio Dash adapter from Amazon after researching part numbers on Crutchfield. One of the cheapest prices from a name brand retailer.
Don't forget to check about an antennae adapter if your vehicle needs one (mine did not).
Does anyone know what the standard installation cost is for one of these at Best Buy, it would go into a 2003 Ford Explorer to replace the stock radio?
Do IT yourself. Its not hard to twist wires and heatshrink or just cap off. Or, buy a harness kit and be done with it. Attach one end to the org and one into the back of the new radio. I always go with a harness, if u have not allowed someone to cut the original wires. Its under 20 bucks, im sure...Crutchfield, Amazon, autozone, walmart, target, bestbuy, audio stores or internet audio
U have a 2003 explorer...enjoy the experience. It will take 15 mins tops. Buy, the deck puller, for the old unit, if needed. The new deck comes with its own metal pieces for the encasement. (It should!) It will be a similar action for speaker harness and/or adapters with the speaker changes.
If, u can do this, ill tell u how to softwire, satellite radio dock into the unit. Blacktape is your friend. The circuitcity Guy showed me in five minutes but he ran the antenna wire and glued it on top of the car. But, i see that's kinda easy, now. Once, i popped the dash and screws...im a female and it was easy.
