Summary: Installed in on 2005 Lexus RX330 and the quality of music via the OEM speakers is amazing. Added HD Tuner and back-up camera and having a blast. BT streaming is really cool.
Pros: Sound Quality, BT Streaming, build quality, price to value ratio
Cons: HD Radio navigation doesn't allow to save sub stations like HD105.3 - 2. No SEEK HD Radio stations - just traversing from one to the next. BT Phone sometimes doesn't connect to the device and I need to reconnect - this could be my 4 yr old Blackberry phone problem
Summary: The DVD receiver itself is exactly how I thought it would be. There were no surprises. The menus are reasonably easy to navigate, but they could be more intuitive. Some settings require that you do not have any source selected, but it wasn't clear that you actually had to be in "off" mode to make the selections. I bought this unit so that we could listen to music off a USB memory stick, although I would have preferred a Secure Digital card instead.
Pros: The system is exactly as described in product literature and on the Crutchfield website. Crutchfield support is fantastic. The system does allow you to play music from a USB stick, but the directions say to take the stick out before starting the car each time. That's not really realistic. They should design the system so that you can keep the stick in the socket as long as you want. Also, why not have a microphone in the front?? The mic is installed from the rear of t...
Cons: I'm not sure why its not possible to simply unplug the factory harness from the old stereo, plug a new adaptor harness into the factory harness and the other of the adaptor harness into the new stereo and be done. A lot of wires still need to be connected, either soldered or using a pigtail or something else. But I suspect this is true of most any after market stereo. Crutchfield did supply a harness for our vehicle, but it still required considerable number of connec...
Summary: This is a great unit. In its price range I do not think there would be a better, more powerful, with all of the features. Easy installation. Crutchfield does it right by sending all of the right gear.
Pros: Lots of features. Great price.
Cons: Pandora does not really work well with the iPhone.
Summary: This radio has absolutely exceeded my expectations. My phone connects without issue, and for when I do need to interact with the radio the touch screen has been quick and simple. Not much I would change. The sound quality does not appear to be as good. But certainly would not steer me away from purchasing again.
Summary: installed the sony xav64bt about a week ago.wiring was fairly easy, checked with crutchfield tech. rep. just to be safe before in installing in 2005 Impala. works great I was concerned about radio reception from some of the reviews,but it picks up both am and fm stations as good as factory radio.I called sony to help install sens me soft ware. I have all my music on a usb thumb drive.( about 1000 songs) It works great i never know what song is coming up next.
Pros: good sound front usb a plus. Better than average screen display in daylight.
Cons: rds only displays one word at a time. Small volume button. small clock display(but visible)
Summary: Perfect solution for a 10 y/o truck. After nearly buying two times from a BB retailer, Crutchfield gave me the confidence to make a decision. Bought this Sony DVD player to get the bluetooth and USB inputs and it feels like a new truck! Not really planning on watching movies, but next step is to add a back-up camera for the new teenage driver in the house.
Pros: Easy-to-learn display with so many features. Price for a DVD player was great for a trusted name-brand, less than installed price for a simple CD player at BB.
