DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY ON THIS!!!

Francisco N. Rios, Amazon
15 July 2014
  • Summary: I bought this hoping it would be a good product cause of it's features and it must be the best radio cause look at the price. I remember reading some of the bad reviews but I choose to roll the dice and take the chance with it and now I'm paying for it. I useally don't write reviews but the good samaritan in me just compelled me to warn you. I had this installed in my car for only like 2 months. It worked good at first but then I started restarting on it's own.

Almost perfect

Turner D, Amazon

  • Summary: This unit has to be one of my better purchases. I needed a new car stereo, but wasn't exactly sure which one I wanted. I thought something with android would be something fun and new. Not exactly what I was expecting, there's not really any similarity between it and android, it has its own interface design, luckily apps would run on it. Now I say would, because I could not for the life of me getting the internet feature on this to work.

The worst ever

Big D Sweetz "DJ", Amazon
1 January 2014
  • Summary: I bought this refurbished which was my first mistake. I should have listened to all the other reviews about how crappy a product this was. After having this in my car for 3 months the LED screen died. I could not get this to come back on for anything. One day it magically came back to life all by itself. After that it would start shutting off and resetting all on it's own.

Unit works, but not everything.

P. Solin, Amazon

  • Summary: As many here have mentioned, the subsequent software updates have fixed many issues, but the unit is still iffy. If you need to replace an old car stereo with something newer and cooler, this may be it, depending on your needs and budget. Let's start with the bad. There are glitches like any other Android piece of hardware for sure: programs can crash, some of the network settings left me in the dark, and it takes a little while to start up (30 seconds).

i love this unit

  • Summary: I just installed this unit in my 2006 Ford Escape & I love it. I grounded the green wire so all functions work, then rooted it and got the google app store working. That allowed me to dump the awful igo gps app, install a 32 gig card and get both google maps & CoPilot working. My Verizon Galaxy Note 3 plays both music and video perfectly on it through an HDMI connection and the Parrot tethers to my unlimited data plan through WiFi.

Overall, this is a really nice Head Unit

Tommy, Crutchfield

  • Summary: This unit replaced a JVC KW-NSX700 in my Chevy Colorado. The JVC was a real disappointment, mostly because the MirrorLink connection didn't have enough power to keep my phone charged while I was using it. The Smart, on the other hand, is already an Android device and only needs the phone for a data connection. The GPS works great with the antenna installed under my dash and I've never had a problem with it finding the satellites. It's faster than my S3 in that way.
  • Pros: Price, Connectivity - Screen Quality (much better than the JVC) - ease of installation, lots of input ports. Easy extension due to it running on Android.
  • Cons: No built-in Satellite Radio connectivity (had to use a portable Sirius XM radio - Lynx - and FM Direct connection)

Not worth the price tag

ben, Amazon
27 November 2013
  • Summary: It's a little bit cheaper than they make the product out to be... The volume dial was the weakest... It's super cheap plastic and just wasn't to the quality that I was expecting... As for the other grief that some people have ranted about - - Yes it takes about 2 minutes to boot up - Installation instructions are nonexistent and can't be found online (good luck figuring out the wire colors without previous radio knowledge) - Scrolling through radio stations is AWFUL -...
