Well, as far as AIWA remotes go, they are generally crap. I have one for my CDC-X507M and it rarely works properly, esp on the steering wheel. I do have a problem with the shock protection, if I close a door hard or hit the side of the dash that the unit is on, it will skip. What exactley happens when it "stops playing?"
These two problems aside, i love my AIWA head unit, so dont fill this thread up with post about how bad AIWA is.
