    I tried a similar one on my old Civic. I already had the Grom audio unit in my accord and assumed it'd be the same but far more cost effective option.

    I found it to be similar but the ultimate difference for me was the lack of auto switching control; specifically the Grom would switch the source from radio to CD changer for you to answer incoming calls. This doesn't have the capability.

    Otherwise worked very similar in terms of controls and sound quality over bluetooth. For me the switching would be a big deal so based on this I'd go for the Grom unit every time. May be less important for you however

    you can, it just means that while you notice your phone ringing (there will be no audible tone through the stereo unless you are in the cd changer mode), you need to switch to the correct source before pressing >FWD to answer the call. With the GROM the whatever you're listening to is interrupted by the incoming call

    Fitted my USB Stereo adapter/bluetooth.
    Impressed with the sound, fitted an LED so i can see it when it open but it looks nice when it shut as you can just see a red glow, but can't capture it in a picture lol tried to get it same as my clocks.
