I don't have any experience with this one, buy it, try it out and if it is crap, return it. Cantire has a good return policy.

ok try regrounding the hu.

my mom always complained of bad reception in her 2001 hyundia alantra.hyundia told us to buy a new radio and said lots of ppl complained of the reception. so i pulled the dash appart and re grounded the hu to the nearest bolt i could find.
and now she can pick up we can pick up the AM stations from edmonton cristal clear here is saskatoon.it also fixed alot of noise problem(like when you had the fans on high)

i solved the probem in 1/2 and hour and it didnt cost anything.

its worth a shot hope this helps

the ground wire is alwasy black.replacing the antenna and the wire attached to it will also improve reception bit its a little tricky to to do.
