Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 Excellent radio....
This is a great product from Bosch. Shipping was fast, thankfully it was free since they don't carry this version in stores. It will not control an Ipod, you must use the headphones jack as stated by others. Do not leave this unit in direct sunlight for very long, the LCD display will go black and it has to cool down to become visible again.
This thing sounds great for its size. The remote must be pointed directly at the front of the unit for it to function, it would be nice if it worked from all around.
I would recommend this product to others. A battery would be nice, but thankfully Bosch was giving two 18v slimline lithium-ion batteries by mail in rebate, plus the $40 off from Home Depot! SCORE!!!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Bookemdano PB360D Lithium Ion Radio with Fat Pack 3Amp 18 volt fatpack Battery
This is the only radio out with a rechargeable lithium ion battery. I love this radio, 360 degrees of sound. I use my Android phone to play pandora through the radio and love how awesome it sounds. 25Lb is kinda heavy but a portable sound system that lasts all day. Never have to remove battery, just plugin and it charges. Never have to buy batteries that can cost quite a lot of money. I recommend this radio for work, home,beach,park,and everywhere.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JimJr great quality
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

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 Good Sound for a work stereo
Great sound. seems tough
Little cord for iPod phone is useless too short and most people on jobsites have a Otterbox type of case so the 90 degree connector bottoms out on the case before the cable can be fully inserted. I had to rip the case off my phone till I replaced the cable to a straight connector.
Also the manual says "may not charge some USB devices" should be changed to "may charge SOME Usb devices". I tried an iPhone, Ipod Ipad Samsung Galaxy III and a hand held GPS. It charged NONE of them So I got a cigarette USB connector that stays plugged in all the time
Little things but not a deal breaker

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JWCC10 Very Good Radio - Just not perfect
After lightning took out my old Powerbox 10CD this one was bought as a replacement. I liked the old unit and had not planned on replacing it since it met my needs.
This unit has a bit more volume and definitely improved radio reception. The sound quality is an improvement. The run time on battery is better than the old unit using NiCads. Control functions are very similar to the old unit so the learning curve was very short. Same ruggedness as its predecessor.
The cable issue could be resolved with Bluetooth connectivity but that could also be an issue on a job site with interference from other devices.
The variety of outlets provides work arounds for chargers for specific devices. Haven't tried MP3 directly from media but the unit work fine with my iPhone and old iPod.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by FireandSteel24601 Great features
This jobsite radio has the most features of all the others. 110 volt outlets, a 12 volt outlet, usb charger and mp3 hookups and it recharges the battries. Something that Milwaukee, and porta cable do not. The sound is good, no problems with that.
The two bad things I have found about it. Is it will not play my MP3 well it is charging in the USB port. The other is the radio weighs a ton.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by igorfil Good but ...
The box doesn't read USB and SD card if they are larger than 2Gb. Bosch, with all due respect, what year are you living in?
Other than that it's a nice radio. Probably the best on the market
