great unit

Doesn't have Bluetooth audio stream which they failed to mention, overall great headunit for your dollar

VS
Disappointed

Pros: It has a knob. The sound is good but its not going to blow your hair back. It is simple to bypass the brake restrictor if that is your thing. The bluetooth is great when it connects. Cons: iPod response is slow. Often it buffers for like 5 to 10 seconds then executes. Makes looking for a track on your iPod a real ordeal. It suddenly shut off (without command) twice in the two weeks I had it. The bluetooth does not always automatically find your phone and you have to do it manually. Perhaps it was a defective unit but I exchanged it for somehting else. I expect more from a +/-$475 unit without navigation.

I had this stereo installed in my new Ford F150 2010. It fits perfect and sounds great.

For the money the DDX line is great. The iPod integration works well and is faster than almost any single din unit I've used. The bluetooth and screen quality are good too. If you don't need nav I definitely recommend any of the DDX's.
