I started looking for a flip out screen dvd player about 6-8 months ago. I was pretty much set on buying something from Pyle or BrandX. I was only looking to spend 200 bucks and found a large number of lower end stereos in my price range.

That is when I came across this radio in a local custom truck shop. I played with it for a few minutes. I spent a lot of time playing with some lower cost Pioneer and Kenwood units. They (1) did not have all the features one would one in a unit like this and (2) they were not as smooth as their higher end units.

I like this unit a lot. Not counting the reviews that involve damaged units or bad installs or other defective units, most reviews are fairly accurate. It does have a clunky navigation system. But it does work. It takes it longer to reroute than my wife's nuvi or my google navigation on my phone. The basic ipod controls are better than I thought. It reads the playlists that I have on the ipod. It does not play video from the 5th gen ipod videos. But, it does read videos off of the SD card slot. It will read up to an 8 gig card. The RDS works for music stations, but when I listen to ESPN 980 it does not pick that station up. Setting up presets is very easy, just find the station you want and hold down the preset button you want. There is a pretty good eq selection between presets and custom. I do not have a camera or amp or anything extra. Just the basic jeep stereo system.

When they say the radio does not fit, it does not fit. I had to do a good amount of custom work, and I am not done. But after a day or two with this unit, I am very pleased I spent more than I planned and less than a top end unit.
