    Blaupunkt Casablanca or Pioneer DEH-P55BT?

    Have been looking at a new head unit and as there are quite a few bargains out there I've narrowed it down to two units. Cannot decide what to do with though:

    Blaupunkt Casablanca Unit which is a CD/MP3 player but also has a USB port and a SD/MMC memory card slot for extra storage of music.

    or

    The Pionneer DEH-P55BT unit which is a CD/MP3 player but also has the added bonus of a Bluetooth unit built in so you can use your phone handsfree via it.
    http://caraudiosecurity.com/shop/pro...s_id/4624.html

    Both are priced at £165, the Casablanca wins hands down looks wise I think though. I don't really use my phone a lot for calls in the car, very very rarely so having a built in handsfree kit might just be a waste of money. But ya never know.

    Opinions guys - anyone got either unit? Which one would you pick if you had to?

    Personally I prefer the Blaupunkt as it has a better screen and I prefer its SQ to the Pioneer. The only benefit of the Pioneer is the bluetooth phone stuff but if that is not important to you then no problem.

    Decided to go with a different unit, which I ordered yesterday. Have a mini ICE install planned as well, which should get sorted out this month or next.
