Thanks guys

Friend of mine just installed a Sony 660UP in his 2013 trike. He's pretty happy with it. I'm now leaning toward the same Sony or go big and get the Pioneer Deh 80 PRS. The Pioneer is pretty crazy. 2 rear usbs and a SD card spot under the facee among other things. Sony $110 Pioneer $270

'Sent the HK to Iron Cross Audio for f/r preamp outs, rear aux and switched headphone jack. I am very satisfied! No cons so far...

today: ms-60
pros: simpler menus, inside tray, daylight visible
cons: blue light

have had
DSX-310 ( similar to the 210/100 )
pros: cool red black menus, 7 band EQ
cons: complex menus, answered my phone once

next up:
Alpine UTE-42BT
pros: menus similar to the ms60, simple, no blue light, inexpensive, rain cover will fit better
cons: menus will be harder to read in the sun

Ive had the Alpine CDE143BT and now the Pioneer 5500 indash. They are both great units with bluetooth, usb, and aux plugs. Downside is the alpine is hard to read in the daylight. A few buddies have the Kenwood decks and you can reverse the display light and see them great during the day.
