Towards the right side, it has volume dial and a 3.5mm port below the volume dial to connect your headphones. On the left side, the buttons provide with four options to choose from where you would like to listen to your favourite song; it has Saregama, USB/Aux-in, FM/AM, Bluetooth. On the top, it has a power button. The back has a USB port for music playing, Micro USB for charging the gadget, and a reset button to reset the device.
How does it work?
The Carvaan when switched on for the first time, turn to the Saregama Mode on Geetmala with songs ranging from the year 1952 to 1979 out of which you can choose to the son or genre by turning the knob to different tracks on the list. The mode can be switched from Geetmala to Artistes to Specials.
The songs can be chosen from the genres by turning the knob or clicking on the next or previous buttons. The drawback is that the display does not display the list of the songs, but the songs are picked randomly. And it is quite difficult to go to the previous song if the song has been skipped.
For songs on the USB, the knob acts same, but in FM radio, the knob is used to move between the frequencies, letting you experience the old fashioned radio. During the Bluetooth mode, the device can be paired with other devices with ease and gives a pleasure to listen to the songs on the Saregama Carvaan.

One can say that this is the device which can be used by the old music lover, but it gives freedom to listen to something in your own song-list. It has great looks, easy to use, quite loud than other gadgets in the same range, and up to 5000 collections of songs yet it needs some of the improvements such as improvement in vocal-led tracks and battery life to make it one point solution.
