On the plus side, this unit has a lot of features... iPod connection, HD Radio, SD and USB playback, and lots of inputs and outputs. It works OK, and the sound is good, but the interface is clumsy and the overall display isn't that attractive. Some things are a lot more difficult than they need to be. If you have media with songs separated into folders, you need to first press a small area on the touchscreen to change the mode of the buttons, and then press equally small DIR - and DIR + buttons to change folders. Listening to HD radio stations (the HD-2 and HD-3 channels that carry additional programming) is even more awkward and really requires a lot of work on the touchscreen.

Although the display is large (nearly the full size of the Double DIN unit) the resolution is low and only the first part of track and artist names are visible. The unit can be very slow to respond at times and even locks up on occasion.
There are also some more serious problems. The bluetooth integration works OK for voice, but doesn't properly sync phone book data to the device. It's advertised as supporting this - but it fails and just puts up nonsense names for contacts.
Also annoying (very annoying, really) is that the unit forgets the radio presets every now and then. This makes the extra HD stations just about useless, since after all the work of programming them into the presets they just disappear.
For the money, it does a lot of stuff, but it doesn't really do anything well.
