|November 24, 2010||Nice unit||
Alex from Toronto, Ontario, Canada
I have it for about 2 weeks now - installed it with Bose integration harness in Infiniti G35.
-Sound quality is excellent! I am using USB stick with MP3-very detailed sound. Even better with original CD's.
-Simple menus. Manual is not needed, very easy to set up and figure things out
-Great expandability-hookups for everything you can imagine these days
-Screen quality is excellent
-NAV is easy to follow-when you are approaching a turn, you get split screen with zoom. Distance and estimated time in seconds to next turn are also displayed on screen.
-Trip stats are cool-I wonder if I can use them on race track(average/max speed etc)
Not so good:
-NAV has spots with no coverage, and this is in not so new suburb of major city.
-Currently no NAV upgrade available
-Sound tuning is VERY limited, EQ is a joke.
-USB cable is too short. Just get an extension right away.
It would be nice to have different illumination options to match dash colours.
I did not notice any issues with screen visibility in daylight. It is just a bit worse in polarized sunglases, but everything is still visible.
Overall-very recommended. I put 4 stars for reliability, but it is too early to say how long it's gonna last.
