I bought this headunit because i wanted everthing it offered the navigation, dvd, bluetohhth the whole nine yards and i got what i wanted. the only problem was after having it professionally installed for less then a month the bluetooth wouldnt link up to either phone i tried to connect to one of them being a 3g iphone. in less the 3 months the display went, and none of the keys seem to function, i beleive it over heated and burned out but im not sure, i never used the dvd feature so i would hate to see how long it would have taken for it to burnout if i had used the dvd player.

Buy something else.
NAV - rudimentary. If you set route criteria and turn your vehicle off, the nav reverts back to the default route, but ask you if you want to continue on your previously selected destination. There is no look ahead for your route you can only see your immediate location.

BlueTooth- only works with a limited number of phones. The pairing of your device gets corrupted. So, phone will connect a call but you cant hear or speak with your party. You have to reset unit to factory defaults losing clock setting, radio station setttings, equalizer..etc.

CD - I played 2 brand new cds in this unit, after that I couldnt play any cds and now have a new one stuck in player and it wont eject.

USB - I plugged in a flash drive, unit says it is loading. Then says USB not available. Ive tried 3 different USB flash drives. No go.

Ive owned this unit for 4 months, so no return. I suppose I could send to Clarion for repair but I promise when I take it out of there it will not be going back in. Please save your money, buy something else. Worst purchase I have made in years if I could give it all 0's I would.

Everything works well on this unit except it WILL NOT show the correct time no matter how many times you set it, no matter if you turn GPS sync to ignore.

Bluetooth with my iPhone was hit and miss. Would not know which speaker sound would come out of (Phone or Car Speakers) because it would vary from day to day!! Would not turn music off to answer phone at times....... if you set to default it wipes out all your radio presets and then would work fine for a few days or hours and then the same would happen.

I returned product and was sent a new one from Sonic (Great customer service) and had the same issue with the replacement.
