    Can't fault Kenwood, had two USB models recently. New models (KDC-W6041U and up anyhow!) look great too, rather jealous as mine is the previous year:

    Not best for prices all the time but the full list. Mine runs a 2GB USB Pen but will take anything that only needs a single USB lead to power/run it so stick in a portable USB HD and you're away!

    Kenwoods always a good make, if I was in the market for a new headunit I have one over a Pioneer now

    The 6041 mentioned above has the option to link to steering wheel controls

    Never bothered getting the steering wheel control adapters for mine, but I like the HU overall.

    For USB usage I would check on things like which filetypes it will play, will it random play on the whole device (some just random on the current folder), how many folders on the device will it handle, that type of thing.

    I've paired my phone up to a sony BT headunit before, it works alright with the option to stream music via it too
