The Sony Xplod CDX-GT540UI is an entry-level car audio A/V head unit and CD player. Featured is a single-disc CD player, an integrated AM/FM tuner, and front-positioned USB and auxiliary ports for connecting almost any type of portable audio device. It improves from the CDX-GT440U by adding iPod and Satellite/HD radio compatibility, as well as support for AAC iTune files. Unlike its predecessor, however, the CDX-GT540UI does not host a detachable faceplate, although it does feature selectable preouts for an external amp or subwoofer, RDS data broadcast information, and ultra-fast song searching and selecting via a Quick-BrowZer.
