Decent for the price but required troubleshooting
December 25, 2018
Seems to work fine. Sound quality is ok. Not as user friendly to navigate as ipod, but you get used to it fast. Overall good for the price.
I gave it three stars because of the difficulty I (a millennial who has grown up with technology) had getting it to work. Below are the issues I had, and their solutions, in case it helps anyone.
Do not use your work computer to add music if it encrypts as it makes the music unreadable. This was my bad, I was hoping it wouldn't encrypt, but if you're getting a Cannot Read Files message, consider if this is your problem.
Car wouldn't recognize it via USB - this one was frustrating. With the ipod you plug in and go, this not so much when you start. When you plug it in you can choose to charge and play or charge and transfer. To play in the car, you want charge and transfer. Once I sorted that it seems to work fine, though in my mom's car we sometimes have to unplug and plug it back in to connect.
