Default New HU

i went to my car accesory dealer where i saw this "terrific" HU , perfect 1 din size, plays only FM, and a surprisingly loud volume.... throw in a pair of desi speakers and all set for tara ra ra.

Great for people on a very very very tight budget who just want some muzhic in their car (<500-600)

Cost : Rs. 180 only

Some pics:

Man, that's a simple FM radio that is very popular with truckers, low cost cabs, autos, tea shops, tyre puncture shops, petty shops etc etc.

Also comes with a one day working warranty

While this product might be really cheap and tacky (and laugh-worthy ), it did make me think that if some credible brand marketed a HU with only FM and an Aux-In and/or iPod connectivity, it would suit the needs of a HUGE chunk of people.

I think for 180bucks, this is indeed a super thing to purchase for Taxis and Autos. And some channels like 104 are quite listenable too.

I'm not laughing at it.

I think this is a kinda rude on your part. Panky just post what he found and what to share with everyone.
