Geez, ShadeTree and Tchgrif... I think the point IS, that the CD player was listed. AND, when you pay more for the good stuff, you expect it to include features of the lesser models, along with the extra features. I've got basic Sync with CD player. It also has USB and Bluetooth. But, I just bought another album on CD, to add to the bunch I brought over from my old vehicle. I've got basic BT connectivity to my phone, but, have found that getting music and system sounds over the stereo is awkward, at best.
