Leaning toward Sony tune tray radio

Time to swap out the stock HK in my 13. Been doing some research and I think I'm gonna go with a DSX210 or DSX310 for the tray feature. My wife complains about the music I listen to and figured it would be way easier to just have a flash drive or MP3 player and fumbling around with 100 cds. My only concern is the ability to see the display. Anyone running a tune tray radio, what are the pros and cons. Gonna ad an amp and Hertz speakers while I'm at it. Thanks

I've got the marine grade tune tray (not sure which model # it is) but I can see it just fine even with the sun at my back. The marine models supposedly have a display specifically for sun glare.

I'm very happy with it - just got a small flash drive that I leave in there. I only take it out when I want to add or remove a song.... mostly add.

Hope this helps!

Edit: I have this one - http://store.sony.com/webapp/wcs/sto...56&tab=reviews

I've heard / read some complaints about Ipods / phones overheating.... Can't say from my own experience as I've only used a flash drive. For me its easier than having to insert & remove my phone all the time...

Some what satisfied

Sony DSX-MS60 is the Marine unit. I have the same one my only complaints are the EQ (takes A LOT of using and comparing and adjusting I have logged over 2000 miles already and still am trying to dial it in) and the durability of the knob (which is on all the tune tray models) mine broke (the operation of it) in the first few days. It is a pain to warranty from buying from an online source!

I have an DSX MS60 marine.
eq is a bit of a pain in the buttt, but you get used to it. Only downside I have had in 20,000kms is the faceplate sometimes loses contact with the main unit. Everything still works alright, but the display either disappears or turns to gibberish. I have to push the faceplate in harder to get the display back. not sure if it is adjustable or not but that is a wintertime project.

I had the same issue with mine. Just yesterday, I simply smeared some dielectric grease on the contacts and it's been solid ever since. Cheap, easy fix.

I forget the model Sony I had on my '05, but the main complaint was the horrible lay out of the faceplate, which really hasn't changed in all of Sony's designs. Performance was great, but the pins on the face plates will wear through, it's probably the biggest complaint, they are definitely not up to this task.

That said I really like the DSX MS60. A great buy.

I looked at the Sony tray models to see if my iPhone 5 would fit inside. That would be a NO. Even when I took it out of the Outterbox case it still wouldnt fit. Its too long. First time I have heard the words its too long .....lol.

If your going to do something give it all you got, might be the last time you ever do it !!!

Hey Flatout you got any pics of the Sony powered up with the display showing from riders view? I am sure there are plenty of people that would love to see what it looks like.
