Default Any USB head unit

Hey everyone,

Is there any headunit with USB support.Actually so that i can connect my 40gb harddrive with mp3 directly instead of burning them on CDs.

Also i would like to know if JBL speakers are better than pioneer.

Yes. The Scorpios (Fully loaded ones) comes with a HU which has not only a USB port, But also a slot for SD/MMC cards as well. The sad part is that those are some made in PRC (People's Republic of China they say), with any quality hardly in it. The sound is crappy, and the head unit shouts : " I'll die in a day or 2 ". I thought carmakers only fit branded HUs, But was shocked to find this. Maybe Mahindra still remains far from being a carmaker.

I guess this is for the lower end market and for OE market. Xenos inspects and certifies the quality. It comes with warranty too. Isnt it better than to buy Pioneer with cheap lens and spurious parts from the grey market and get a biting dog??

Buy Pioneer only with bill and warranty, else look at some things like Xenos and Nippon

I have seen Pricol stuff and did not care for fit and finish. I did not bother to listen to it becuase I would never use it.

hey benkey , u have replied to the post after 2 years
no offence meant here...
The problem here is that as u can see this thread would get noticed by newbies like me, because someone has recently posted to a thread that was almost closed/dormant 2 yrs back!
