Summary: I have been using this unit for years. I would recommend it to anyone. Video is bad (not all file types play) but the ones that do work well. music is perfect, phone connects to it without a problem. I would buy it again for my new car without a doubt. using a 64gb flash drive and had no issues yet.
Awful interface and awful display, bluetooth quality good
29 March 2012
Summary: I've had this thing for a year now, and it does nothing but drive me nuts. I use an Ipod Classic with it, and its interface to access it is atrocious. My iPod locks up quite a bit while hooked up to it as well. All of the menus for the options are ridiculous too.
Summary: Awesome radio if you know how to use it. Some of the features I love: 3 band parametric EQ (12 bands to choose from), with adjustable bandwidth, adjustable filters for front, rear and subwoofer. Has great control over the Ipod, or you can set it to let you control the Ipod from the Ipod itself.
Summary: Don't listen to the clowns that hate on this deck. They probably installed it themselves which is why it doesn't work right. This deck is great. Bluetooth works great, easy to navigate (had it installed for maybe two hours and already know how to work it all), the screen is bright so I don't know...
Not very intuitive, but good once I read the instructions

Summary: First, the good: (1) nice clear hands-free bluetooth, my main reason for buying. (2) Good sound. (3) HD radio. I suppose if I replaced the factory speakers, it would sound better. Now the bad: (1) Not intuitive, but I suppose that's why an instruction manual is provided. (2) No pushbutton presets.
Summary: Granted this unit is VERY hard to figure out and VERY hard to see during the day, I did want to share something to all viewers about switching between radio station presets. On the remote, while the radio is playing, simply press the preset # and enter and the station changes to the pre-set number...
I really want to like this but there are a lot of problems.

Summary: I bought this unit mainly for the Zune support. That level of connectivity with the Zune does not exist elsewhere, outside of Ford's SYNC. It sounded nearly too good to be true. As it turns out, that is indeed the case.
Summary: In spite of a few negative reviews I bought and installed this head unit in my 2006 Subaru Impreza about a month ago. Any issues described in the reviews I read were non-issues for me. I chose it because it is HD radio and Bluetooth ready and has a USB option.
