The huge downside is there were the only marine head unit with 4v pre amps which I absolutely loved.
You're talking about the cda-9886m right? I think the cda-118m only has 2v pre- outs.
As for jigster's comment about the iPod control, I guess you could use a dumb iPod cable, ie iPod plug to RCA and plug it into the RCA aux in, like a std mp3 player. Then you could control the music from the iPod...but not vice versa.
