Icon5 Pioneer H/U ?

I am looking to get a Pioneer DEH-6100BT. I want to know if anyone has this and if they like it or do they know someone with it. It looks good but the joystick control is weird to me. Also how do you select the preset stations? Do you use the joystick and go through the menus? All of the HU's I ever had have had the 6 preset buttons on the front of the H/U. I looked at it at Best Buy and it looks like a very good unit. I want it to plug in a USB flash drive with music. I found it on Amazon for $189 which seem reasonable.

That is more what I am looking for. I like the preset buttons on the face and the cheaper price. It has BT too. I saw one similar at Best Buy but no that model.

So you like the Alpine? You can have your local store order it in for you.
I love it, everything I want with a price that I can barely afford ahah.
Whats BT?

The only thing I don't like is that you need a separate box for the Blue Tooth to work. It costs an extra $180. I really want to BT because my truck is a 5 speed so talking and driving doesn't work well. Now I can't decide which one I like because they are both nice.

Oh haha, I wouldn't ever use Blue Tooth because I have mastered driving with a broken hand, while talking on the phone, while eating a blizzard with a manual haha. It was difficult but I did it :)
