I have now owned 2 of these radios and although I actually love the functionality of the unit and had no problems setting everything up, the reliability is very poor.
Firstly it has a tendancy to rest it itself, which is no big deal apart from the fact that when it does it automatically turns itsself on and connects to the last radio station. meaning that at times it turns itself on at 3am and starts banging out loud music.
