Summary: "Pretty Good for the price, but made of flimsy, brittle fragile plastic...be careful, it's not the Pioneer of Old which used to make solid Stereo equipment and electronics. This "pioneer" seems to make "just enough" quality to sell units. Ultimately a disappointment, but for those of us on a budget most of these things are a compromise between quality and price.
Summary: This unit has a serious design flaw or maybe my unit is defective (most likely design flaw). The FM-RDS displays & repeats no name, no title. I contacted Pioneer and they are telling me that looking at no name, no title is acceptable. Every station offers three lines of data, 1) The station 2) The Artist 3) The Song. They scroll continuously. I have many car stereos with the RDS system and this is the first one with a serious design flaw.
Summary: I received the radio, never got it installed becasue this radio does not come with the required electrical harness to connect to speakers and power. I've purchased Pioneer 16 pin radio harness' but they don't fit.
Summary: Had this installed in a 2006 corolla. The radio,Bluetooth, pandora works very well BUT the microphone did not work. Since I had it installed at an audio place, I did not have him remove and shipped back at additional expense ... So I bought another microphone for a total of $30 more and had it installed... Now works well ...
Summary: I bought this from Best Buy and then ended up returning it after two weeks. It is an excellent BlueTooth radio.... does everything you would hope and does it well. Works really well with the iPhone. (At the time I had tested it on my iPhone 4s.) Reason I returned this radio: WAY. TOO. BRIGHT. AT. NIGHT. Seriously... it is obnoxious. Like some terrible beacon light poured out from the heart of the sun directly into your retinas.
Summary: Wow! What a nice sounding and full-featured deck. Bluetooth pairs easily, though the microphone must be positioned properly to get decent sound for hands-free with the phone (love the Bluetooth audio). Buttons are very small, but have positive detent. My only complaint, and it is a big one, is that the display is WAY too bright at night. There is a dimmer setting, but it is not dim enough. What is more, there is no way to turn the display off.
Summary: Pros: Great audio, great bluetooth support. Cons: The big one: The normal display is very bright. Setting the so called "dimmer" only turns it down 20% or so. If you set a custom color and try to turn them all down it INSISTS that one of them be set to at least level 20 which is still WAY too bright for night use. What were you thinking, Pioneer? The small ones: The controls lag a little. You can only turn the knob a medium speed or it won't register.
Radio ok. Mit Spielereien überfrachtet. Betriebsanleitung schlecht. Es gibt bessere Alternativen.

Summary: Das Gerät ist mit vielen unnötigen Spielereien ausgestattet wie z.B. die viel zu große Anzahl von Beleuchtungsfarben, die einem zudem beim Einstellen nerven. Die Gebrauchsanleitung ist bezüglich des Set up sehr undeutlich. Obwohl ich schon einige derartige Geräte eingebaut habe, hatte ich einige Schwierigkeiten. Fazit: Radio an sich ok, aber überfrachtet. Gebrauchsanleitung schlecht. Ich würde es nicht empfehlen. Es gibt gleichartige mit bessere Bedienerfreundlichkeit.
