Love it! Looks stock, especially at night.

R. Nierman, Amazon
29 January 2014
  • Summary: Everyone thinks it looks stock! I was able to match the dash light color of my 2003 Ford Escape perfectly with this receiver. It sounds great and hasn't missed a beat. We love it. The only thing it's missing is the ability to display radio station song titles as my cheap JVC and stock radios do. I don't know the technology used, but it seems this receiver should use it. ?

Couldn't be happier

  • Summary: This is GREAT stereo, the bluetooth works wonderfully and the color choices look amazing, the instructions are pretty simple, you just need to get your car's wiring codes that you can find easily on the internet. Now I can listen to whatever I want whenever I want, no more dreadful radio stations.

An awesome full featured radio for people who already know where they are going.

Kaveman, Amazon
2 December 2013
  • Summary: I just love this radio. I am not one for big flashy screens and showing off, trying to watch youtube while driving to work, and if I get lost i can use my phone for directions. I just wanted a radio that is a radio, and would fill the double din hole in my dash without a big ugly adapter. Something that looked vaugely stock, had a volume KNOB, and could connect to my phone to stream music.

great features for the money

NPN, Amazon
14 May 2013
  • Summary: I installed this in my 2012 Nissan Xterra with the Scoche adapter plate. It all went in pretty easily, just watch some youtube videos to learn how to take the dash apart. I have the S model Xterra and the factory HU was really bad...no ipod input anywhere and really tinny, weak audio. I left the stock speakers installed and this unit makes it sound great..HUGE improvement. The Bluetooth hands free phone works good.

Great buy for the price.

  • Summary: This is an excellent product. The price is very reasonable and it performs great. The only recommendation that I make is, if you have a Nissan with Rockford Fosgate system, buy the Metra 75-7551 harness and most important, buy a four channel ground loop isolator and enjoy all the nice features of the head unit.

Sounds Great and awesome value!

  • Summary: Great In Dash Unit sounds great and works great! like all the features and sound quality. But I would've like to have a better tuner for FM reception. Since I can use bluetooth for music I decided to keep. It is still better than STOCK unit.

Cx501 w/BT

Dave, Amazon
27 October 2012
  • Summary: This is the best head unit I have bought to date. Many of the complaints, ie: poor lighting, Bluetooth having to be connected manually every time, no illumination at night, etc. are simply related to improper initial setup/wiring. This radio connects to my iPhone 4 in literally 6 seconds, both phone & AD2P. Color match is excellent. Calls are crystal clear. Very easy install in a Toyota tundra with the related Metra kits. Would definitely recommend.

Awesome Features

mistermaker, Amazon
29 September 2012
  • Summary: This car audio system has all the features that I wanted plus. There was one significant challenge when I was setting up this audio system, but it turned out to be an issue with the adapter harness not this audio system. The harness adapter I bought had the antenna motor wire and the factory amplifier wire tied together so my rear speakers in my Toyota 4runner only worked when the antenna was up, I was able to correct this problem by cutting the blue wire on the adapter...
