Summary: As a unit, has many features. Like that it plays from my iPod, has bluetooth connection for my android phone. USB drive with music is awesome, 16GB of music and plays forever. The cons: external phone microphone is nice idea but my toyota camry has too much cabin noise to be effective. My wife hates when I talk to her on it. The color scheme is very difficult to see in a very bright sun. I have to use the amber green, but even then it is sometimes hard to read.
Summary: USB port didn't work right out of the box. Bluetooth is spotty and radio reception is below average. I should have gone with my gut and bought a Sony. I will never purchase another Kenwood system.
Summary: Was relatively easy for self-install (I highly recommend purchasing a wiring harness and steering wheel control interface if applicable). The Pandora functionality is great, when it works. USB & Aux is a nice plus, but with Pandora & bluetooth I never use them. 95% of the time I use Pandora, and the other 5% I play music on my phone via bluetooth & Google Music.

Summary: The microphone is poor, my callers cannot hear me and when i adjusted it it got worse. when i followed some other hints of "opening" the hole, it seemed to improved slightly, but not good enough to use on business calls. disappointed.
You will never find a better head unit for the $$$

Summary: I would 100% recommend this radio for the $44 I paid you will find nothing better. I actually bought this for my boat and it has not skipped a beat yet. And if you think I am making this up , I have over $100000 invented into my car audio system I know what i'm talking about.
Summary: Didn't think I'd need Bluetooth but it's great as my phone connects automatically, is answered when it rings, the Cd stops and the sound is clear also for the person at the other end with the mic attached. In general, I don't like the new displays -- it is difficult to see anything on the display from where I sit in the truck during the sunny day...about 350 days of them in Arizona. Better if they went back to brighter LED displays.
