This unit has almost every feature you would want. I needed a back up camera so thats basicly why I got mine. SD card slot, Aux for MP3 or iPods, plays movies, CD's and has enough power to make even stock speakers sound great. I would highly recommend this unit if you dont listen to the radio and if you do read chinese. The first unit I had the radio had almost zero reception, you had to be up high or real close to even local stations for radio reception of any kind. After receiving a replacement unit it had the same problem, and no it wasnt because of the cars antenna.
It also has kind of a cheezy looking screen. The other complaint I had was the chinese translated to english manual, very poorly by the way. If your not an audio expert and reading the manual that comes with this there is a lot of guessing left up to the reader. With the installation I had one wire that was colored wrong and not tagged plus three other wires that just were there with no explanation of what they were for. A call to Pyle tech got that straightened out.
I kept this unit for 2 or 3 months and replaced it with a Sony XAV60, only 10 dollars more and a nicer screen with all the same features with the exception of no SD card reader, and the radio works. One thing you can always count on for a Sony is clear, easy to understand manuals.
As far as Sonic Electronix goes the return of the Pyle was easy, no questions asked and fast and friendly service. I did not contact them on the same problems with the second unit as I did not want to give another one a try.
The 2 stars for ease of use is solely based on the poor manual.
