A GREAT SYSTEM!

July 8, 2009

We purchased the CDX-P686 to go with an entire system for one of our cars. The CDX-P686 was a super addition, it responds to commands from the control and sounds absolutely perfect. We have not heard it skip at all even when passing through many hard bumps in the road. The next upgrade for one of our vehicles will be a Pioneer system with a CDX-P686. Go with a Winner! Lenny
