Phil from Littleton, CO
After reading the excellent review on another site, I began researching the Rosen Car Show Piranha CS-CR1210-US for my 2011 Jeep Wrangler Sport. I had the standard factory radio (RES) single CD with steering wheel controls.
There are a couple installation videos that Rosen has on YouTube that also helped me with my decision. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ds58NrtGQfc
I wanted something that looked factory, had Sirius/XM, Bluetooth, RDS, hands free phone, backup camera, worked with my steering wheel controls and was easy to install. I also did not want to pay $1000+ for this. This unit fit my needs very well.
I ordered it from Sonic Elextronix after calling them with a few questions. I wanted to make sure this was truly plug and play. Sonic was cheeper then other online retailers and I used my savings to purchase a Metra TE-THC backup camera. I also picked up the SXV200V1 Sirius XM Connect tuner at a local big box retailer. UPS delivery from Sonic was 4 days.
I spent the better part of an evening and morning for the install. No real problems, I just went real slow and wanted to get it right. The toughest part was the rear camera install. I ended up putting the camera in the trailer hitch cover because I did not want to remove the bumper.
The fit of the head unit is very tight and make sure you donít pinch or cut any wires trying to get them all pushed up behind the radio.
Everything worked fine except the backup camera. My quick splice connector at the back up lights did not work with the very thin backup camera wires. I had to cut the wires and use a butt connector. Then all was fine.
The unit works and sounds great and is truly plug and play. It comes with the harness needed for the Sirius XM SXV200V1 and set up was easy. The steering wheel controls, volume, will switch radio presets, scan radio frequencies and let you switch on navigation. For some reason once in navigation, I canít switch back out, with the steering wheel controls, although I can still change radio presets with the steering wheel controls while navigation is on.
My only concern is if I can update maps in the future. The web site Rosen sends you to wants you to download different installation software. My computers are Apple and it looks like their stuff is Windows only. I would be interested if someone has successfully updated their software from the web site Navieextras.com.
My install is only one day old but so far I am very happy with my purchase. This is a very nice, professional looking do it yourself install for someone who likes to tinker, but is not a professional.
