Have a Pioneer 7950UB in my M800. Nice unit at a nice price - and easy to source (when I bought it).

Direct Ipod connectivity and can do bluetooth thru an adapter.

i got the second hand H500 for 350Rs.

The small speaker was removed and thin extension wire was soldered on. this is passed inside the dash and connected to the kdc 6539u aux with a male 3.5mm headphone jack.

The button in front of the handsfree is used to pair the cell with the HU.

The fitting is now changed and looks a little better. the unit is charged once in a week for 2 hr from the cig-lighter point.

The sound is clear and the caller get no echo.
