Summary: This deck came to me with a CD stuck in it &, after getting the CD out with some professional help, the deck doesn't play CDs anymore. I use it with my iPod & an aux cable, which was my original intent, but i shouldn't be forced to have that as my only option. Highly upset with this transaction.
Summary: I installed this on my 2002 Ford Focus and it blows the stock unit out of the water. For the price you can't really beat it. The main drawback is the size of the volume knob, it doesn't stick out far enough and is hard to find and grip while driving. I recommend picking up the Metra dash kit for your car and Metra harness adapter along with this.
Summary: the radio I received is the 150mp pioneer, I found out after purchasing and messaging the seller that the 1300mp is discontinued, I wish the seller would have changed the name. I still like my radio, but three stars for the wrong information.
Summary: Radio worked as it should. After a few weeks radio would randomly would have no sound. Took radio out checked wiring and found no problems. Checked speaker wiring but nothing. Reinstalled and radio will on ocassion still do it but not worth the hassle to send back so will live with it.
Summary: I installed this in my car by myself so that I could be sure it was done right. It looks really nice in the car and allows me to play songs from my ipod. The CD player also works. The problem is that the factory radio had better reception than this one. Yes, the stations still come in and they sound good when they do, but I've noticed when there are a lot of tall buildings around or other interfering environmental factors, there's a lot more static.
Summary: With the proper hardware (wiring harness, installation kit for a single-din stereo, and an antenna adapter), this was fairly easy to install even for someone who'd never installed a stereo before (or anything electrical, for that matter). Works really well. Will have to read the instruction manual to figure out how to turn it off, but other than that, it's pretty intuitive.
Summary: Great car stereo, radio and cd sound great & lots of features. Easy install for me.The best feature I like is the loudness hi & low settings espically for my '95 Toyota truck (small cab). The only reason I gave it 4 stars is no storage pouch for the detachable face plate and the factory wiring harness has some short leads. This the only car stereo wire harness that I had to add wire length instead of subtracting length.

Summary: This stereo's display is unreadable in the daylight if your viewing angle is straight on or less then straight on. This means if your stereo is mounted high on your dash, like mine - 2002 Honda Civic, and it tilts slightly upward, then you will not see the display in the daylight. It's like the LCD on a calculator. You can see it better at certain angles.
