Too Bright

Susyn "Living for Him", Amazon

  • Summary: As described. As with many aftermarket stereos, the buttons are small and difficult to make out the lettering (impossible at night). I wish you could dial down the light intensity better (too bright at night). Historically Pioneers have had good FM reception, but this unit doesn't do very well. I might try an aftermarket antenna, right now we're just using the built in antenna on our Ford Freestar.

Great unit. Great Sound. Some minor annoyances. Recommend.

  • Summary: I have used this deck for 14 months now. I have it in my 2000 Jeep Cherokee. Some observations: Pros: The sound is great. The functions are many. It is generally a great deck. It has a cable you can run to your glovebox to plug in USB devices. It has a "bluetooth audio" that pretty much streams whatever you are pushing to it with bluetooth. We use this to play youtube music in the car (passenger DJ...).

  • Summary: First I have two of these ones on a dodge ram truck with eom speakers and amps the other is 94 firebird inifinty speakers amps and sub. For the price it cannot be beat. A little learning curve operating but simple not overly complex. The sound is great with both cars I use wave files on a flash drive the head unit can sort thru files and tracks while displaying what's playing. The hands free phone BT and music playback with BT are great.

sweet deck!

  • Summary: Used this to replace an old cassette deck in my car. Three thing is awesome most of the time! Bluetooth is great, call quality is awesome. Gives information about the phone on the screen, such as battery life and phone model. The one gripe I have with it is every now and then it shuts off and stood playing music. It will come back on, but it's kind of annoying.

Great cd player with Bluetooth

Kiwironic "The kiwiGuy", Amazon

  • Summary: Great cd player with Bluetooth, has everything you might need and the sound is great in my car. It has a few defects though, it won't display any other language than English, it won't start the voice command if you are not using Bluetooth music (if you are using USB for example) and sometimes it gets a lot of read errors if using a big USB drive.

Decent car stereo

  • Excerpt: Installed this at the weekend and found it to be quite easy to set up but the display panel text is quite small and hard to read in the full glare of the sun. Overall its a good unit... my only grumble is that living in an area of poor dab signal you often go out of range and unfortunately the kit does not come with an fm aerial adapter so uou can still listen to radio when out of range of dab.

Good player for the money

Benlp, Halfords
2 August 2014
  • Excerpt: Fitted the unit with an external DAB aerial, so reception very good. The factory settings are a bit annoying, cycling colours and "Powerful" EQ (all you can hear is the drums and bass) but can be changed in the settings. Once the EQ is changed, the sound is very good, both from the DAB radio and the SD card (didn't try the aux in or USB in) Sound is perhaps not quite as detailed as my previous Kenwood unit, but then it was around half the price, so very good for the...

  • Excerpt: Excellent Stereo but really writing review for the service given by John at Loughbough, if this guy isn't running Halfords in a year, it would be a waste of talent.
