One of the reasons I chose this marine grade Sony was the USB plug that is attached to a cord on the back of the radio. The cord allowed me to drill a hole in the bottom of the glove box and mount the USB plug. Stick a flash drive in and you have lots of tunes and it takes up very little space in glove box. No wires to be seen.

I thought the USB cord for the Sony marine unit was behind the flip up face plate?

Can't find a picture of my Sony, here is a link for it on biketronics. I like having the USB for sure. I can plug in my ipod and my handlebar controls can control it. Plug in a flash drive. Plug in my phone to charge and then plug my ipod into the Aux port till the phone is charged. One problem is you can't see the display during day light unless you lean forward and look right down onto it.

Im liking this setup,.. but can you change the colors of it? I got nothing blue on my bike, and blue lights in the radio would drive me nuts.

Does it work with a iPhone and the controls on the bars

Unfortunately not. You may want to look into the Sony DSX-S210X. It is not a marine head unit but has similar features and also adds satellite radio compatibility. Illumination is switchable between red and blue.

The Sony radio I referred to in my earlier post is model CDX-M60UI. It has the USB plug already on a cord (cord is about 30" long) and the cord is on the back of the unit. It also has a Aux. plug on the face plate, and the read out is LCD so it can be seen very well even in bright sunlight. The display has two switchable color options, blue or red, and it does work with the handlebar controls (either Biketronics or Hawg Wired kit). I used the Biketronics kit because the auto volume control was important to me and then bought the Hawg Wired mount system (their mount fit and finish is excellent). Cost me more to do it this way, but I'm a fussy old bastard! Hope this helps with any questions.

Ive decided on the MS60. There is no way I would put a non marine head unit on a bike. :D

I have found that it really doesn't make a difference. I washed the bike with the M60 and got it wet thinking it would not make a difference. It did. Didn't work right until it completely dried out. Any head unit I use from now on will stay behind the Biketronics splash guard.

I have the Sony ms60 and it's great. Can't change the display color but being able to put the iPod inside the deck and not worry plus marine grade. That is what sold me on it. Plus the price isn't that bad seen for $160 on some sites. Also it charges the iPod or iPhone whatever you use.
