Summary: With the nice sound quality,I think I no longer need good speakers. Just had 1 problem, I couldn't tune in to some programs in AM because if you will search for stations using the AM frequency,the stereo will search in intervals of 10. Let's say you want to tune in to 594, you cannot do so because you can only tune in to 580, 590, 600, 610, 620, 630 and so on. I've tried everything but that's really how the AM tuner of this stereo works.
Good ipod function but poor AM reception and cd track skips

Summary: It is installed in 1998 Toyota Camery. The installation is very fast and simple. The ipod control is great. Overall this device is good. However, I found that the AM reception is very poor for this device compared with my original factory radio. When scanning the AM radio station, it can only found 3-4 station in Los Angeles while there are many more that my original radio can find. When mannually tuning, it can find more station.
Summary: Sound quality and iPod integration are very good, I don't use anything else other than the iPod and I use it quite a lot. I do find the controls to be lacking, there are many issues regarding usability and user-experience that make this unit quite difficult to operate while the car is in motion. Switch to iPod control and problem is solved since you use the iPod to manage the music (not very safe while driving).
Summary: I bought this cd player back at the end of July 2009. I have been very happy with it until now. Now I am having to send it into Pioneer's service to have it fixed. The pre-amp has burnt out and has absolutely no sound, not even a hiss. There's no continuity through the speaker wires of the adapter at all. Other than it not playing at all right now, it is a good cd player when it works. Couldn't really complain for the price though.
Summary: I bought this stereo with high hopes that it would integrate with the iPhone. To be fair, it does NOT advertise iPhone compatibility. However, I'm posting this review for others like me trying to assess this based on customer reviews since some products that don't advertise iPhone compatibility still are compatible. There is one review on this product in spanish (titled "Excelente") that says, "..
Summary: This was the first after-market car stereo I have purchased. After realizing that I needed two adapters to make it compatible with my 2007 Honda Pilot's cabling, I ordered these cables and was able to complete the installation. Once installed, it worked pretty well except for the AM radio. Talking to the folks at Pioneer, it sounds like I have a grounding issue - a problem with my installation (because the FM works quite well).
Summary: The Ipod controller is excellent, the only problem is that you have to browse artist by artist, so if you want to get to the Z you have to roll it down all over. The stations do not tune well, and I have fixed the antenna cable several times!! It just doesn't work and that's why I am giving a 3 star rate.
Excerpt: hola compre esta fenomenal radio de coche y despues de 1 mes puedo decir que se eschuca muy bien, lo unico que le falta es un reloj en la pantalla, por lo demas la entrega en redcoon fue rapida, no como en buyvip que tardan mas de 1 mes y a veces ni te entregan el producto. en redcoon bueno barato y rapido a casa.
Cons: no tiene reloj y se saca y se pone muy mal la caratula
Excerpt: Ho comprato la radio nuova nel '98, a costo di circa 300.000 delle vecchie lire. Tutto sommato il rapporto qualità prezzo è abbastanza buono, non bisogna però pretendere più di tanto da questa radio che è soltanto discreta. Essa ha infatti solo una uscita pre per amplificatore e non può comandare lettore cd esterno. Una nota veramente negativa è la quasi impossibilità di lettura del display durante il giorno a causa dei led gialli a sfondo nero. L'impianto ...
