Jim from KCMO
I bought this unit based on other reviews and the features of the unit. And it was better than expected! I was hesitant that it was a Jensen, but no longer.
Install - easier than expected
Sound - Very good, the unit has a lot of options in equalization. I wanted the 3 sets of outputs. I did find that the unit is not tolerant of high compression MP3s. Some of my oldest MP3 recording were at highest compression and low fidelity. (memory wasn't cheap 10 yrs ago) I re-ripped them and they sound great.
Controls/Screen, I searched out units with a rotary volume, but with large screen. This unit is great on both- an the screen only slightly washed out in full sunlight from sunroof.
Inputs- it taked USB, SD card, DVD or CD for music. All work fine. Nice to have those options, more expensive units don't always have those opttions.
DVD - plays movies better than expected, easy to jump forward, loads fast.
NAV- for the price you can't beat it. My Magellan is slighlty better or intuiative, but when you get use to this one, entry flows well. It does include 11 million POCs and was impressed. When you have Nav and stereo on, the music mutes down and the Nav voice comes on with nice fading. You can upgrade the NAV info in future years for $99, but the '09 data is fine.
Blue tooth/camera- haven't played with these yet.
I would highly recommend - friends that have seen and listened can't believe the price and brand. They love the screen. For 1/2 the price of Kenwood you get 90% of satisfaction/features.
My favorite feature is the ease I have scrolling the MP3 songs, very easy and the titles are easy to use with large font sizes.
