Summary: This came in a 2004 Honda Odyssey I just acquired. Didn't sound as good as my Clarion cz I had in a Sienna and a Cherokee. (I had factory & replacement speakers in both, for a true before/after experience). I dialed in different equalizer settings to try to improve the Pioneer, but couldn't quite get what I was after. Audio control navigation took some trial and error. Buttons are ridiculously small/hard to read. Selling it.
Summary: I purchased this as a birthday gift for my spouse about a year ago. It has been a real challenge to use because the buttons are small and navigating all the features is impossible to do while driving, including finding pre-set radio stations. I originally purchased it so we could plug in our ipod but the ipod we had was too old (4 yrs) and was not compatible. When we upgraded to a Nano, it worked great for a few weeks but then the Nano stopped working with the receiver.

Summary: I am writing apart from Ipod considerations, as one who plays mostly MP3 discs or CDs. The sound quality on this player is great, but the ease of use is horrible for two reasons: Reason one: I have had CD players stolen out of my vehicles before, so it is important for me to be able to remove and reinstall the facing simply and quickly. Its quirky design often requires several tries to get it back in place. Removal is not bad.
