Default New Fusion I-Pod Stereo, anyone have one yet?

I see that Worst Marine is the exclusive dealer for the new Fusion unit that houses the IPod inside the unit.

Looks interesting, was wondering itf anyone had one and what they thought about it.

not me...as I think it locks you into an ever-changing product...the ipod has worked well but has to be replaced by other things that won't fit. What happens when ipod goes bluetooth? I like aux in's for any MP3 product...don't lock yourself into an ipod - and I'm retiring on apple stock!

it's a product released 2-3 years too late...

I have 4 ipods that will work with this unit, kids upgrading all the time.

I always use just the ipod for music and this unt looked like a good fit for my center console.

Still up in the air on it, would like to know if the built in amp is worth a damn.

sounds like you are sold already...buy it!

my point is don't trust apple...they will change the interface at the drop of the hat - I have 7 ipods in the house - guaranteed 4 of them don t work in this unit...and I mean full fledged big units, not that nano stuff...don't be shortsited and hook your base unit to apple......

One thing I do like about it is it's use of large buttons for the functions, like Blaupunkt stereos back in the day. Simple is sometimes better.

I have a Pioneer head unit but can't see the radio's display because of the angle the unit is up in the electronics box and my height so I'm deciding on a new unit soon.
