Put $13 on it and get something like this. KENWOOD KDC-X996 CD/MP3//USB/PANDORA/FM/iPod/iPhone Built-in Bluetooth/HD Radio 0019048198129 | eBay (http://www.ebay.com/itm/KENWOOD-KDC-X996-CD-MP3-USB-PANDORA-FM-iPod-iPhone-Built-in-Bluetooth-HD-Radio-/280897623319?pt=Car_Audio_In_Dash_Receivers&hash=item4166cd9517&vxp=mtr)

Yes, they are pricey. But I said that mainly because "Premier" no longer exists.

The Kenwood KDC-x996 is what i use and its pretty dang nice for $213. The Pioneer DEH-8400BH and DEH-P9400BH are also nice for under $200

The Kenwood has time alignment and the crossovers are a lot more flexible, but other than that the 8400 is a heck of a hu for the price... He could get a used x994 and have full bt, t-a, and the only main difference is a 5 band rather than a 13. Found one for 170ish here... Kenwood KDC-X994 USB/CD/MP3 In Dash Receiver in good condition 019048187727 | eBay (http://www.ebay.com/itm/Kenwood-KDC-X994-USB-CD-MP3-In-Dash-Receiver-in-good-condition-/140768490292?pt=Car_Audio_In_Dash_Receivers&hash=item20c674b334) I didn't mention the x995 because it doesn't stream audio via bt. Edit: the x994 and x996 do.

Try the Pioneer MVH-8200BT. Not sure on the going price for one new, but you can definitely pick one up used for 150 or less
