[SIZE="2"]Additional comments on its functionality...

USB: The USB interface works great. Firstly, it is very fast at recognising the files and it has a quick browse function. This feature allows you to search through your folders and files in seconds. Secondly, it is compatible with both Flash Drive and HDD as it works with both my 8GB flash drive and 160GB WD Passport HDD! Thirdly, it can read up to 65,000 files (up to 128 folders containing up to 500 files each)! Fourthly, a USB dust-cap is included too. Take your flash drive/ HDD to Halfords and try it out with the model on display!

Shuffle: It shuffles either within a folder, all folders, or off.

Sony Walkman: It has extended control of a Sony Walkman MP3 player.[/SIZE]

Free fitting instore. I just bought one at the weekend and the product price sticker said Free Fitting. :thumbsup:
[SIZE="2"]I searched hi and low for a better price, but this is the best price out there, unless you work for Halfords of course![/SIZE]

Message to anyone in the 'know' about these things:

1. How important is having a seperate sub-output; if you wanna run an active sub (speaker with amp built in)?

2. How do these things look with appropriate facia, in a ford focus?
The same model , just without the usb socket is only £94.99

£65 seems a lot just for a USB socket.
You still have a 3.5mm aux input , bluetooth streaming ( for music as well as phone calls) , and mp3/wma cdr/cdrw capability on the cheaper model.

I will wait and see how much the cheaper suppliers charge for the 3600 model once they get stock.
Cheers for the massive picture Mecoconuts, it looks great in supersize :thumbsup:
[SIZE="2"]I think for the extra £65, you get an excellent USB interface that works with flash, HDD and mp3 players. I tried out some other stereos with USB, but the sony was the easiest and best to use; specially as it can read up to 65,000 songs. And, the price includes free fitting. I recommend going there and trying it out. :thumbsup:[/SIZE]
Remember Halford's " free fitting" is very rarely free. Tthey charge their inflated prices for the iso adaptors and fascia adaptors if needed ( which is more often than not).

If its the usb connection that is important then you can get a Sony model with a USB socket for £73.99
It basically has all the feaures of the posted model except the bluetooth.
I've got the CDX-GT616U, it was an absolute bargain at about £66 after Christmas (not available at this price now though - sorry!). I have to agree that the usb interface is brilliant, the only problem I have is that in my 2002 Mondeo it's located at a level which means that my hand could knock the usb stick when I go into 5th gear. Bought myself one of these though, and problem solved. I do really like the usb feature, and think it well worth having, but probably not for a £65 premium!
Kingston also do mini USB flash drives - which are useful if the stereo is close to the steering wheel or gear stick.
Just popped into my local store at the weekend and bought one of these. Even better now that it has a further £20 off making it just £139.99. The wife liked mine so much that she bought one for herself.
Thanks to OP :)
