  • Summary: Poor instructions, should've shipped with extra mounting screws.
  • Pros: Cheap with a lot of features, decent size screen, decent sound from onboard speakers. Relatively easy to install.
  • Cons: Doesn't work in the cold. Although the instructions say it has an operating temperature of -4 F. to +176 F. I have found it utterly useless at +17 F. -- the current temp in my area. After heating it in the car for over an hour it starts to play SOME disks again. Possibly just a faulty unit, but with all the temperature-related disclaimers in the instructions and the fact that Pyle only promises to repair or replace the player I think it's not worth the risk.

Not bad for the price

  • Summary: Some spare screws would be nice. One was damaged during removal of the mounting bracket and had to be replaced. No biggie.
  • Pros: Good selection of features for the price (168.00 through 3-Kings Audio). IR/FM headphone ready is good but actually having onboard speakers is even better with young kids who like to destroy sensitive electronic devices. Haven't finished installing it yet but I tested it with a 12 volt power supply and picture and sound work well. Installation appears easy but I won't know for sure till I remove the old unit.
  • Cons: Plastic housing was slightly scuffed and warped right out of the box but nothing that would prevent use or installation. Totally acceptable for a kid-mobile.
