Jamz from YONKERS, NY
The product appears nice to look at. It protrudes a bit more from the dash board but not a big deal to me.
At first I ordered the PNX-761 but the faceplate of this one is not detachable as being advertised in all websites (Sonic corrected it already) so I replaced it with 721 which is almost the same, but a single DIN with detachable 7inch faceplate.
Since my SUV has a double DIN, I have to convert it to a single DIN for this to fit. What is nice though, now I have a pocket behind the face plate where I can store my I-Pod when connected to the unit.
The sound is at par with my JVC and Eclipse with seven band graphic equalizer. A nice touch. However on both 761 and 721, I can hear a hissing sound in between music more noticeable when the car is not running.
The I-pod interface and control can be improved. It shows an I Pod control buttons on my left, and the song information on the right. The song information is very small and the album art is also very small. The unit plays both music and video stored in the I-Pod.
I don't have problem with the blue tooth. It paired with my HTC EVO right away. It plays stored music and internet stations well.
Now, the NAV. I do not know if the map is current. I could not find any update from GoGo website. I e-mail power acoustik and reply is, no update at this time. It seems to me that the map may need some update. I noticed that the actual sign post is on the right but the one on the navi is on the left. It also tells me to exit left on a none existing road (an exit with a different number is on the right). After this glitch I was able to reach my destination.
In addition, The instructions manual is nice, in color but confusing at times. Probably nobody re-read and do some corrections before printing. There are also no instructions on how to detach and attach the faceplate,and it does not tell you what are those buttons on the front panel does.The instruction manual on my other head units indicate what are those buttons for.
This unit has many features, this review is only for the ones I was able to use at this time.
I hope this will help a little someone who is interested in getting this unit.
