Ok, so its probably not a bad bang for your buck but after having this radio in my car for a couple of months I would have preferred to get something else.
• As most folks already mentioned, it takes forever to boot up with time varying from 30-60 seconds.
• Screen washes out in any sort of sunlight rendering display unusable
• Its also inconsistent with what the initial screen will show. For example; if I was listening to my SD card when I turned the radio off sometimes I get SD as my source and sometime it reverts to main screen where a source need to be selected again.
• The touch screen buttons are too small to comfortably selecting things like songs or preset stations and no, I do not have big fingers.
• The radio has a tendency to freeze with Bluetooth use.
• At times when I get an incoming call there will be no sound coming in until I re-pair the unit with the phone.
• The volume level is not retained when the radio is switched on and off. It always reset to whatever default setting for the source is.
• Whenever the backup camera is used as a viewing source, the volume is muted. I can understand muting volume when the car is in reverse to allow total concentration but why mute it when you are driving forward and want to use it as a rear view mirror?
• iPod interface is lacking. Just like volume settings already mentioned, most features, like song shuffle or playlist placement in the queue reverts to default when the unit is power off and back on. Sound quality is junk unless you use their iPod cable, which I feel is a scam.
If you can live with these shortcomings, then the radio is ok. The bottom line is, I guest you get what you pay for.
