    Hi guys,

    Finally i decided to dump my stock HU, reason is very simple it is archaic to say the least. I don't know what Fiat was thinking giving a system without AUX and USB support. Any way i don't have CD and neither i have the patience to burn them :-D. I will not complain much since other manufactures don't even provide a HU in their Mid variants and Fiat does in its base variant itself.


    So since i burnt a lot of cash purchasing the car....after taking some kind recommendations from TFI members and booking a Dynamic instead of Active (Thank you guys) ;)


    So Following HU i have shortlisted currently with prices

    Pioneer MVH-355BT - Rs 5600 (Snapdeal,after discount)...asked Driven and they quoted 6K none less
    Blaupunkt Helsinki 220 BT Car Stereo- Rs 7600 (Snapdeal again)---well not entirely certain about it but it looked nice :p
    Pioneer DEH-4590 - Rs 6400 (Local shop with waranty)


    Currently just replacing the HU,, the speaker the next month.

    p.s i am not a audiophile by any mile...and would really would like to have a BT enabled HU(helps a lot) that integrates well with our dash as much as possible

    All suggestions are welcome, i would order them today itself if i get some clarity.
  2. Consider Pioneer Mixtrax one also. Demo shown on a mixtrax version was really good.

    @Praveen...I thought the mixtrax hu would become a bit out of budget...
  4. Then you can go ahead with the shortlisted one. I was given this recommendation by one of the audio installer . The demo given to me was impressive. The person said while choosing HU prefer 3 RCA out.

    Regarding the Mixtrax , I am using this model Pioneeer DEH-x6500BT. It has Mixtrax , Yeah it feel good for some songs but for some songs it irritates. Again its my individual feeling. I would suggest , if some one is coming from US then asking them to pick it from there . As i got it for less than 6k($106) from Amazon. Bluetooth streaming is flawless , no need to connect phone and call quality is also good . Works with iphone . below is the link.

    Save a little more and get the JVC KDR90BT~12000/-, its worth every penny and famous also.

    @vivek well would have but really the HU overqualifies my need for a HU :p. It is too good and i am not going to add subs and amps which will actually justify the HU. That is why i rather spend that on some other accessories. Still waiting for a recommendation on which HU will be good option?...else currently my eyes are on Pioneer 4590 BT
