Aimed to excel but limited by quality

  • Summary: Installed in 08 civic, mic behind steering- other person cannot hear the voice properly (have to lean forward to make it sound better, could be due to high road noise in hondas). Slow to respond after key press. Complicated menu.
  • Pros: NFC, BLUETOOTH, COLORS, USB Crutchfield is soooo good they shipped me a replacement (included free return label) because the first unit is skipping songs automatically.
  • Cons: cant see the screen in bright days, slow, Bluetooth mic not sensitive.

Overwhelming

Dann, Crutchfield

  • Summary: Complicated at first. Navigating the EQ on a display like this is a terrible idea. Too many options to seem feasible.
  • Pros: Any color of the rainbow (& the actual rainbow) to choose from to light up. The carstereo+ cleans up 'drone-y' bass sounds
  • Cons: Display navigation confusing. Too many options.

Sony MEX-N500BT - A Must Buy

Rex, Crutchfield
27 April 2014
  • Summary: Ive never installed my own radio before and I attempted to do this one on my own, and it took me less than an hour to do. Crutchfield supplied the directions I needed and this was a very smooth install. The unit itself is pretty cool. The fact that I can control the unit using my iPhone is pretty sweet. I have not yet needed to dig into the manual to figure anything out. Changing the colors is easy. Setting up blue tooth connection was a one time shot.
  • Pros: I gave it 5 stars for value. Because for the price, its a really solid unit. Connectivity is easy for the bluetooth and the app. Radio is easy to use and doesn't take much time to figure out its features.
  • Cons: The only con I have for this radio, and maybe its in the app itself, i don't have the ability to like or dislike a song while listening to Pandora.

good value basic headunit

KevinK, Crutchfield
27 April 2014
  • Summary: I installed this headunit in my 1997 Honda Del Sol Si roadster, pairing it with 2 sets of 5 year old Alpine Type S 6 1/2" speakers. My phone is a Samsung Galaxy S4. Installation was straightforward, and there was plenty of space to use the factory mounts and still be able to close the factory radio door. The unit looks very nice and with the rainbow effect display, looks as if it belongs there.
  • Pros: Looks better and more expensive than pictures, BT connection solid once on, DSP makes all sources sound decent at low to medium volume levels, good integration with Sony App Remote for Android, lots of features for the money, uses your phone's capabilities (text to speech, voice recognition, gestures, etc.) very well. Sony's minimalist approach to the deck itself, and allowing the phone to be the main control device and display, works pretty well and makes sense.
  • Cons: Amplifier does not have much headroom - the amp section is the part that reminds me that this is a lower priced deck. Good for listening at low to moderate levels but distorts easily at high volume. FM sensitivity is pretty bad. Most menu choices are weirdly named and not obvious as to what they do. Bluetooth source stops, disconnects and resets every time you turn the key - does not resume playback of previous source. Keyboard on phone is locked for use while App Rem...
