When I purchased my car it had a pretty cool head unit, but when i removed the faceplace to get the product details the unit started acting wonkey and has been getting worse over the last 6 months. My back up camera now results in a black screen. Not to mention the volume only goes up to 30 and it doesnt have automatic volume adjustment so i am constantly changing the volume. I also have issues with it playing music from my iPod nano. So I decided to come here to see what was better.
I've decided that this head unit might be an upgrade and I havent found anything remotely as great. Now heres the funny part, the unit I'm looking to replace is the KD-AVX77!
I'm pretty convienced that the issue is either from damage to the unit or a wiring problem on the back end. Until I find out otherwise, my only 2 complaints are the lack of auto adjusting volume and my iPod issue.
One cool feature not mentioned is the proximity sensor. My car is orange with black accents, so i use the black screen with the orange ring & time display. when something gets within an inch of the display it shows full controls. the screen requires no force what so ever. a light touch will cause the unit to react, however it may take a second before doing so. some folks detect this as a lack of recognition and press harder. this usually isnt necessary, but the unit seems durable enough to handle the abuse on a regular basis.
For the average guy, i'd say read the manual, however until today i've never seen the manual and with enough fiddling, you'll figure everything out.
I strongly dislike badging on electronics. I mean if you spend a few hundred or even thousand dollars on something, you are going to remember what brand it is, it doesnt need to be stamped on the face, that little round hole, thats an aux jack, i dont need it labeled, i'm not going to forget. So another strong point, there is no badging or script on the faceplate at all unless you remove the faceplate and check the top (hidden) edge.
overall its great. could use some higher resolution graphics, but these are good. Value gets docked a bit as it is far from a budget unit
design it wins plenty of points for the lack of badging
duribility this thing takes a licking
features the only thing it doesnt do is play blue ray
ease of use you can figure out all the important stuff in 15 min
