Unhappy Alternate Radio ?

What is considered the best alternative radio source, that can be installed on an LT and wired into current speakers ? I'm tired of the factory unit performance issues and failures associated with it !

What have you installed to replace your unit ?

Re: Alternate Radio ?

Do a search for Jenson MSR2007.
there are a few of us who went that route, however you lose your handle bar controls, but hook an ipod or satelite radio to it and you are good to go. I have had no problems adjusting the volume on the go.

Re: Alternate Radio ?

I Googled this Sony and the description stated that it is “OE Steering Wheel Remote Capable” I would think that the handle bar controls could be hooked up to this unit. Please post some pictures of your installation.
