The Fusion CA-IP500 iPOD receiver is perfect for getting the most from my iPOD in the car. The unit was straight forward to install and was working within a few minutes. The monochromatic display is good and shows the MP3 tag information clearly. Along with some fun animation screen savers. I originally thought the circular controls on the device would act like the scroll wheel on the iPod but it is more of a joystick action (up, down, left and right), it works just as well. The other control is the main volume which rotates as you would expect with a good volume range. The front panel that drops down to allow you to dock your iPod is quite thick and tends to stand out about an inch from the dashboard when upright, and about 2-3 inches when down. I am slightly concerned that the panel tends to detach from the head unit a little too easily but time will tell whether this is a flaw. The unit comes with an assortment of plastic caddies to allow a snug fit for each of the various iPod models, which is a simple but effective solution. In summary, interfaces well with the iPod and the docking solution is far better than using cables.
