Sony MEX-BT3900U Car Stereo Head Unit

I like it when things just work. Recently I replaced the standard Honda stereo head unit in my car for a better one. I wanted something that would work with my iPhone (both to play music and make phone calls) and that I could plug a USB stick into ... as well as the normal CD player, FM radio type stuff.

I managed to get one of these Sony MEX-BT3900U units on special offer (less than half price in fact).

I'm very pleased with it, everything just worked out of the box. It talks nicely to my phone over bluetooth (I can use the USB cable too which means I can charge my phone whilst driving).

I even fitted it myself. If like me, you have steering wheel controls on your car make sure you get the right adaptor. At first I got a basic Autoleads PC2-68-4 which worked fine, without any steering wheel controls. But now that I have the correct adaptor for my car everything works. Very cool.
