Yup, so far, so good... Internal speaker may leave a little to be desired though and the display (at default brightest setting) is fairly weak, especially in the car on a sunny day. Very capable unit though. I don't know if I can adjust any brighter (still) than the brightest default setting. Still learning the nuances of this beast! :ROFLMAO: :cool:

I ended up getting an external speaker within a few days of receiving my SDS 200. Not the greatest external speaker I've ever had, but I like it better than the internal speaker. Internal was too bassy for me.

Thanks... Yeah a bit bass and mine seems to easily distort. Not badly, just enough to be annoying, lol

Thanks for your note.

Thanks for this! I suspected but wasn't positive this could be done. I greatly appreciate this. (y):cool:
