I bought this boyo head unit because it was one of the cheaper double din touch screens on the market. Basically i "cheeped out". I suggest you spend the extra cash an get the higher end brands such as jvc, sony, alpine ect. Here are some reasons why.
The radio reception is very poor. While driving listening to local fm radio stations witch came in clear on my stock head unit, this boyo unit has a rediculous amount of static. Note: i bought the proper antenna adaptor from sonic electronix that was recommended by them
When you put in a cd/mp3 cd, the screen that comes up is very ugly looking and uneasy to navigate. What i mean buy ugly is that it says boyo is large letters with warning information witch is unable to change an stays on for the full duration while listening to you music through cd/mp3 cds. Witch i feel is an eyes sore to my car, and people have also told me the same.
A few more cons...
-The volume buttons on the very bottom of the deck dont respond very well when pressing them.
-The build in equalizer is as good as garbage.
-Although it dose pop up an show you the equalizer when you select it in the menu, it wont actually let you change your bass or treble levels. It only gives you the options of loud treble or low treble & loud bass or low bass? Front and back left to right balance options. Witch i find really un useful.
-When you plus in your ipod, the menus are hard to navigate and respond very slowly. Once you select a certain artists it wont allow you to return back the artist list to select a different artistic so you have to unplug the ipod and do it that way.
I could go on forever about the little thing that i dont like about the boyo unit & different things that dont work properly with this this but im not.
Heres a few pros:
-The price. I d way rather spend $200 bucks on a low quality double din touch screen tv deck then i would spend $200 on a alpine (example) single din or something of that price an nature.
-The dvd picture quality seem fairly decent.
-The units appearance its self is decently designed.
Would i recommend this to another buyer? Yes & no
Yes if your just looking for an upgrade from your stock deck and dont want to spend to much, and are not expecting a hole lot out of this unit other then that its plays cd and dvds decently.
No if your looking for something to run your ipod, plan on running an amp or listen to the radio.
Bottom line is that you get what you pay for and you could probably tell by the price, thats not much.
No disrespect to sonic electronix because they are a great site
It's just this low quality product.. Spend the extra few hundred bucks and order a JVC, Sony or Alpine unit off Sonic Electronix. I wish i would have.
