Summary: I like the stereo and the options, but the one main drawback for me is the display. It's way too dim in broad daylight. So much so that it makes it impossible to see. I've tried adjusting the color and turning off the dim feature (it seems to make no difference) and I still can't see it when the sun is out. Instead of glancing at the stereo to see something like the time, I have to try and shade it and still have a hard time seeing it.

Summary: i rate the brand, quality and ease of installation a 4 however my particular unit purchased from amazon has a deficiency whereby the menu and band buttons does not work. this button is used to answer calls etc. while in bluetooth mode therefore it gets a 3 star rating from amazon. i personally do not really use the bluethooth/ band features therefore it isnt a bother to me.
Summary: well it has a lot of features. a very lot of features. 22 page user guide. first things though are not on the list. does it fit will it fit what else do I need. I have a ford ranger 2009 regular cab (not extended(I wish it was a bigger cab)) the removal tool for ford radios did work great. a little touch required but worked good. what I did not realize was that I needed a adapter for the giant hole now in the dash. hold on it is coming. I know I can get this.
Summary: Awesome stereo, so glad I got this stereo. I've always liked clarion car stereos, they've never disappointed me. This one is no exception. Loving the Bluetooth feature, can listen to my music on my phone with out having to plug it in to a aux cord plus it has Pandora feature. Can't be happier.
