    The Quick-BrowZer feature lets you search and select songs by category, including artist, album, genre, or playlist. Jump Mode gets you closer to the song you want by fast forwarding through the music categories in 10 percent increments.
  • ZAPPIN track sampling search
    The ZAPPIN feature lets users play music samples in 6, 9, or 30-second clips until you find the song you're looking for.
  • Passenger Control
    Passenger Control lets your co-pilot control the music playing from your iPod device via connected USB 1-Wire, and as they scan through your music, artist and album information is conveniently shown on the receiver display.
  • Satellite/HD Radio ready
    The Satellite and HD Radio ready feature lets users connect and control your optional Satellite and HD Radio tuners to the integrated Sony Bus system to receive broadcast signals, providing device control directly from the receiver's front panel.

    The Advanced Sound Engine uses EQ7 equalizer, adjustable LPF/HPF crossovers, Listener Position calibration, DM+ advanced sound restoration, Rear Bass Enhancer, and Dynamic Loudness volume leveler to create an ideal in-car listening environment.
  • RCA outputs for external amplifiers
    When you're ready to expand your system, the CDX-GT550UI offers front and selectable rear or subwoofer pre-amp RCA outputs for external amplifiers. Set the built in electronic HPF/LPF crossovers to improve sound quality and reduce system distortion.

    Control your Xplod CD receiver while keeping your eyes on the road with the included wireless card remote (RM-X151).

Verified Purchaser
Pros: Nice Features, Durable, Easy To Install, Easy Controls, Attractive Design
Other Comments: This unit has a lot of nice features for the cost. I loaded a number of files on a USB stick. After turning off the system, removing the stick, turing it back on and inserting the stick, the system started playing where it had left off - nice feature.
