Jensen MP6612i Radio, Audiovox XM Radio Unit, Dash Bezel

I'm finally getting around to posting that Jensen radio for sale - the cause of my first mod to my Smart. I never like aftermarket radios. I think they're just plain ugly, because it's rare that they actually match the car. I also got the car going in to winter, and found it excessively aggravating to try and operate the Jensen with gloves on, because of its compact size.

When I removed the radio (I created an uninstallation thread here) I figured everything was pertaining to the Jensen radio. I was half right. While it all related to the radio, there were 2 separate units in there:
1) The Jensen MP6612i radio and its below-dash input-bank.
2) An Audiovox XM satellite radio unit, which I never used, because:
a) I didn't know it was even there until I removed the Jensen.
b) I didn't know how anyway.

Everything was installed in the car early on by the original owner. Everything was uninstalled shortly after I got the car in late 2011. It's all is in great shape. The light-blue LED backlight was very nice and bright, but I missed the subdued orange as well. This will add a moderate bit of light in the car at night.

I can certainly tell you from use that I could NEVER get my iPhone to cooperate with the radio. Not to make calls, not to sync via bluetooth, not even to charge. I can safely assume it isn't iPhone-compatible. The radio did come out in 2008; I could understand that, then.

So there are 3 things for sale here:

The Jensen MP6612i radio, which includes the radio, all wiring, and the under-dash input box for an SD card, 3.5mm audio input, USB for charging and iPod Sync, and a composite audio iPod input. The Remote is also available, and controls the volume and tuning, as well as phone calls, as the remote's number pad functions as a phone dialer / keypad. The unit has since been discontinued, but I found many articles praising it for a $199 price tag.

The Audiovox XM adapter unit, which is 1 of 2 XM units available to adapt to this specific radio, includes everything you need to hook it up as well. There is an XM antenna that you could either mount above or below dash, and a little card insert thingy, which I assume takes that unit you can buy to take your XM subscription out of your car and into the house for listening. It is still available for right around $99.

The Smart bezel and under-radio cubbyhole. The radio is out of a 2008, and I can guarantee the bezel works in a 2008-2010 Smart. I don't believe it'll work in the new 2011 dash or later. The dash cubby and Smart bezel I assume aren't worth a whole ton, but this is a Smart-specific kit. I'd value it at, what, $20? It's just the plastic bezel and mounting kit. Nothing special.

The ONLY thing I don't have are the little wire crimps mentioned in my removal thread. I assume you can buy your own, or you can hard-wire it in if you'd like. I AM including a ziplock bag full of all the papers, manuals, and info.

No, I can not install this for you, because it's way beyond me. Removal was hard enough. Whoever buys this should know what they're getting in to with radio installation, or I assume any professional can do this for you.

I'm thinking $250 is a good price, as that was the original cost of the radio alone. I'm open to offers, and I'm really looking to get those tach and clock dash pods, if anyone would like to offer up a trade. I would like to sell this as a whole, but would split it up if multiple interested parties come forward.

I'll try to get some pictures up later. One picture of the radio installed exists in the uninstallation thread mentioned above.
More info the Jensen radio could be found at CNET and Sonic.
More info on the Audiovox XM adapter can be found at Sonic.

Well, after 100 views with no interest, how about $200 plus shipping?

I think maybe include shipping and you may get a deal going with someone... The competition is brutal out there... Is the factory warranty still good on your sale items...

After my end-of-the-summer cleanup, I forgot I still had this radio.

Maybe some new interest is out there??? $200 shipped?

(As far as I know, no factory warranty.)

This thing is still available! Found it while cleaning off my porch. I was tempted to install it in my new (to me) Saturn, but I just don't love non-factory units.

At this point, make me an offer! It's just not doing me any good in a box.

* I'd also take a trade for Fog Lights or a factory Smart Cargo Cover.

I also noticed I never put any pictures in this thread! Note, I do not have the original box below. I removed the radio from my used Smart.

As it looked in my car (my actual unit):

Put it in a box along with a crisp new fifty dollar bill and I'll take it off your hands.
