Summary: this is my second head unit. i'm comparing this to the Sony DSX-S200 (wich was my first digital media receiver and it was a solid 9)... the unit works OK. the only con so far is the screen. it only shows one line of information per time (title/artist/album). BT audio/phone works as expected. other thing i dont like is that if you are playing a song in your cellphone/ipod thing and connect it via BT to the unit, it will play automaticaly if you select BT AUDIO.
Excerpt: Love the BT audio: just get in my car, turn the ignition on and music plays from my phone in my pocket. Although the illumination adjustment seems a bit gimmicky, it means I can choose the colours that I like and just leave them; rather than the colours changing or having ones I don't like.
Excerpt: I had a Kenwood before, which I forgot inside the car and was stolen. The sound quality is much better than the previous one and it is more clever when it comes to recognising when my phone is connected via cable or just Bluetooth. Only negative point is that it is not possible to customise the colour, so if you have the money, go for the next model which also supports customising the display colours.
Summary: I installed mine in a 1995 BMW 530iT Wagon and with a wiring harness adaptor and antenna adaptor (inexpensive parts) I had it installed in about 20 minutes. No problems. Navigation, menus, the fact that you can pick the display color, these are all a great plus. I have an old 160GB iPod (classic) that I like to keep in the car- I opted for this unit because the USB connector is in the rear so I don't need to disconnect it every time I park. Pros: Read above.
Summary: I did a lot of research before purchasing a new head unit for my Ford F150. I selected this unit because it had all of the features I wanted (Bluetooth, AUX in, Phone integration, etc.) and none that I didn't (CD player, huge screen). The unit is surprisingly small. This comes in really handy when working on the install because it gives you more room to work with. It's also a very light unit, so that helps too with securing it to the faceplate adapter.
Bluetooth works, calls are clear, impress your friends with this. HAHA.

Summary: Ok I bought this after having a JVC radio for 7 years. I was looking for a headset with bluetooth features and no cd player. I do not use CDs, I play majority of my music through my phone. This headset is great. It has all the features you need. After having this headset for 5 months, I give it 4 stars. The sound is great! My only complaint is at times when playing pandora using my phone, it takes a while for my phone to connect.
Everything is great about this deck except for the display

Summary: Everything is great about this deck except for the display. I love the rear USB, AUX and microphone port. It's easy to install yourself and everything works greats including the bluetooth. The only problem I have with it is the display. During the day it is very hard to see the display no matter what color you change it to. There are some that you can see better than others but there is still squinting involved.
Conclusion: Pros: -Well built headunit with quite a variety of customization options -3 Sets of RCA inputs -Perfect bluetooth capability. Cons: -The illumination makes this headunit almost impossible to read during the day. -no obvious mute button(from what I could see) -track skipping can be quite awkward. -USB Input on back, but comes with a cord you can run to a more suitable area.
