Great upgrade to the factory radio, iPod control and handsfree calling too!
4 November 2012
Summary: I installed this receiver in a 2003 Camry. This was my first time doing this and it was not difficult at all. It took me a couple of minutes to realize I had to remove a "shell" from the receiver to access the mounting holes, but after that it was a breeze (had harness adapter and trim panel already). The receiver itself was as expected with bluetooth, and iPod control built in. Also a front and rear USB port.
Summary: I bought this for my girlfriend for Christmas and had it installed by a professional. It's so awesome, I'm thinking about buying the same for myself. They attached the bluetooth adapter to the rear USB port and just stored the wire in the dash somewhere, so it's out of sight, yet perfectly functional. It was pretty simple to pair the Iphone to the receiver and sounds good on both ends of a call.
Summary: (Bluetooth audio push and phone calls) I read the other review and still decided to get this item because I figured it was an installation issue that the person was having and it's absolutely true because my mic is great. I have a habit of talking loudly as if I'm using speaker phone and have to be reminded that I am talking too loudly..lol. All you need to do is talk normal and the person on the other end can hear you perfectly.
