Anybody have it?
What do you think of it?
Is the antenna in the rear window good enough or need to be upgraded?

I am thinking to upgrade or add HD radio tuner to my Alpine HU
I could get Sony, Kenwood and JVC for $169 with build in HD radio. Alpine add on are pretty expensive. The cheapest I could find are around $160 shipped.

I do not download MP3 nor even have an IPOD. I mainly just listed to the radio and from hearing the demo at BestBuy it seems pretty good although it could only get a couple channel inside the building. There are quite a few channel listed in my hometown that might make this a worthy upgrade.

My JVC headunit has HD radio. If you live near a big city you can get a lot of stations. I love it!

How are the HD reception? I live right around the edge of some the station that have HD channel. 5 miles further from me and the reception of the analog degraded quite considerably.

I live 16 miles south of Seattle and reception is great at home, but starts to fade as I get about 25 miles out where it switches to analog.

Well I live 30 miles outside Columbus. I guess this would not work very well for me.
