I got one for my truck, I THINK it's model: Dual XHD7714.
I've owned mine over 6 months now, run it hard, have had everything connected to it and it works well.

After I got my Evo, I started exclusively using the Bluetooth connectivity for Pandora and local media I had copied to the SD card. Never had any issues. Phone calls come through clear as well. You can even control the basic play functions from the head unit as well (to your phone).... such as skip songs in Pandora, pausing, etc.

I have it hooked up to multiple amps (full speakers, subs, etc)
No issues at all.
My Evo and the radio connect very quickly every time I get in the truck.

Not bad for $100.

I have had three of the Sony Xpload series recievers, and all of them have worked flawlessly using Bluetooth on my Evo. The only issue I have seen is that with the windows down or a loud interior the call clarity is poor, but no worse than using the phones speakerphone.

I use BT more cd's, no more radio, etc. Just make sure your head unit can stream...a lot of them advertise BT, but most will only do BT calling.

Agreed. I just put in a Kenwood DNX6160 with integrated BT. It's an awesome radio. The lower models require a separate BT module... How silly is that... Except that the lower models + the BT modules enable the A2DP, while my higher model with integrated BT can only do phone.

I have a JVC KW-AVX740 with built-in BT (audio & phone use). The audio is decent to good but the phone use is terrible. I have a Plantronics Voyager Pro for my calls (overall, a great bt device).

At this point, I don't use my phone much to listen to music. It is convenient not to carry another device...but I've been carrying 2 devices for so long, it's habit. Plus I don't want to compromise my battery life & phone usage (for music purposes) it is my primary communications device.
