PB360D Great Product
I am a professional in the construction industry and have used other jobsite radios in the past. This unit simply blows them away. NOTHING BETTER!!! It is tough, dependable and has a fantastic sound. It is a little pricey, but in most cases you get what you pay for. Try this one out, I don't think you will be disappointed. After purchasing one for the jobsite , I bought another one to use around the pool area at home. GREAT PRODUCT. Thanks, Jeff B. Florida

The jury is still out on this one
This radio is perfect for what I was looking for---a durable radio for sirius radio; however, I have only had it for less than a year with very minimal use, and the port for the sirius radio will not supply power to my satellite radio(it started fading on and off about 3 months ago and now no longer works at all...I even tried a different satellite reciever).
I will be contacting Bosch tom. to see how they will handle this. It is a spendy radio, but I have no problem paying the price if it works and/or Bosch stands behind it with a speedy replacement. I am in a very rural area so a service center is not worth the drive...I am hoping all the money I paid for this radio is worth some exceptional service. My rating for this product could go up to excellent if I can get a replacement after such short and minimal use; however, I would rate it poor if I am asked to take it to a service center or it won't be replaced after such short and minimal use. I will follow up with how this is handled.
If anyone from Bosch is reading this and would like to contact me to take care of this please contact me by the e-mail on this account I set up to write this review. Thanks, Tucker

Too many short sights to be granted an excellent review
The reason this job site radio fails in my review is not because it isn't a good product it is , but the potential is right there and yet we can't access it
No where is it mentioned not even in the manual the memory limitations of this unit which are
You can't access more then 4 gb of music
On the USB drive and the sd drive
Further STILL this unit when put on random will only access between 200-250 making your memory access about 1 GB !!!!!
Give use folders and more memory !!!
Since there's no CD player it's this or radio
Currently I use my iPod which I can't access unless I open the dust proof door If my iPod was able to be controlled on the up front controls I wouldn't care AS MUCH
But serious whats the point of giving us USB and SD compatibility and wasting ??????
SD cards can go up to 64 gb now or more USB drives too
Also when I use this thing I'm working I'm not trying to spend ten minutes setting up my radio so PLEASE WITH THAT IN MIND why doesn't it remember my EQ settings its not like I change this I pick the eq I like and then turn it off and have to do it again etc .... It's well within this units capabilities to remember that
Also the antenea should be made out of the bars you have enclosing this unit making it UNBREAKABLE
Give us THESE things in a firmware update and this is hands down
The best radio ever well still is but it's just dumb not to have it even If to get these I have to use my SD drive as a ram upgrade and could only access the USB drive in this way I'd still be down with that

I own the 360s and bought the 360d for the remote and more power; need to make it a FAST CHARGER, add Bluetooth to the list of options, hide the remote so the crew can't wear the remote battery by a tool laying on the buttons, make the clock last longer when down to the AA backup, make the GFI covers for individual plugs because they stick out and people not careful (it is a construction site) tend to break them. One last minor detail--it would be nice to know the sat radios that are conpatible with the radio, list it on your site info. These are SMALL issues compared to the great radio quality--this thing is FAR BETTER than any of the other options on the market
