Rated 4 out of 5 by from Overall I'd have to say this is a good product especially for the price. Pros: Price. True multi-media - Plays SD card, USB stick, CD MP3s and has mini jack input to use from your own handheld MP3 player. Love the fact that it remembers where you left off listening after you turn off and back on again. Cons: Don't forget to buy an arial adapter if your arial plug is not the old type. Writing on the buttons is quite small so best to remember their multifunctions. Scrub forward and backward gives no sound, just silent, so you don't really know how far back or forward you are going until you release the button. Conclusion; Still a great little unit for the price The only thing missing for me is I would have loved if they included the ability to record MP3 onto the SD card or USB from the radiio. But you can't have everything eh :-)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What a great unit for only Ј50.I have installed this in my motorhome and the sound is great. It picks up many more stations than the standard radio did. One note for others though: if it does not remember your stations you will need to switch over the red and yellow wires on the iso connector which is very easy to do. I only have one slight negative and that is that it only seems to work if I have my ignition on. Would be good to listen without having to switch on the ignition.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I have recently installed this unit and, contrary to the comment posted above, it works exactly as expected, remembering channels, starting the playback from wherever it stopped. For the price paid (I bought a B-grade item so it was even cheaper!!!) I cannot fault this product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I noticed customers stating about loss of memory, I have had to change the wiring on this venders car radios often, the model seems to make little difference, they have put the constant 12v+ yellow memory/standby wire and the thin red 12V+ power wire in the wrong molex sockets, (first check your car supply and see which one gives 12V+ with ignition off (this is the yellow supply via fuse(memory) then check the pin for your 12v+ with ignition on, I have just installed one for a customer and this was the fault...I am not saying every radio is like this, but sense would be to always check regardless the supply matches even if the supplied documents say it is right ..hence could be a pop, the radio also will run with 2gb transend sd card as was used in my testing with no problems. i have not tried a larger card but sometimes some do work as i found with an earlier model,the radio overall is what it is..quite good and serviable with excellent s/n ratio on the front end reception and ease in the auto features, there should be no grumble about the retro ant socket as these are 3;99 in maplin stores or any car motor factor and gives scope for both technologies to be used ..neat little unit with 1 minus star point because I agree with the buttons being a tad hard to see as they are quite small, but at the price it is a clean good radio

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not Bad I got one of these for free and it's not bad for the price, sound it good and highly adjustable. Nice weight to it. The two downsides are the bright blue screen - it can get very distracting at night, and the fact that for £10 more you can have a name brand head unit with full iPhone support.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from It works. It sounds OK. The manual says 1GB is max limit for USB & SD - different from what's said here. The real problem for me though is that it 'forgets' EVERYTHING every time you turn the ignition off! You lose your radios station presets, where you were-mid track (it just starts from the first track on a device). So not friendly at all. Moderator note: The unit does remember radio presets etc. This sounds to be related to a common issue with car wiring which is that in some cars the "swich-live" and "constant-live" are the opposite way around. A simple fix for this is to swap the yellow and red connections over (these are the switch and constant live connections). Maplin technical support would have usually suggested this if contacted. It is is always recommended that customers contact Maplin technical support if they experience an issue with the unit or have a query regarding the unit as in many cases there is an easy answer/solution.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very good for the price I brought this unit purely for the SD support behind the control panel and happy I did, it saves all the messing around when you get in the car - turn the key and music starts playing. I have found that with the head unit I have, I am able to use an 8gb SanDisk SD card, but it begins to have trouble if you put more than 450/500 songs on it (as in it just stutters the music, probably because of the processing capabilities) so if you want to be able to hold more music I would probably suggest using an iPod or smartphone with the aux in. USB port seems to work well but it doesn't appear to throw out enough amps to charge my samsung phone, so I've had to use the cigarette lighter for this. Overall, for the price a good buy, if you can afford to spend a little more I would think buying the bluetooth version is probably the better option.

Does my Citroen FM/AM aerial work with this model A65HY?

Asked by: Tandy
Thank you. Very disappointing, though. Can you recommend a DVR that can be accessed without that necessity? Many thanks.
