Great stereo

I got this because its an upgraded version of the stereo I have in my 911. It was easy to install - the hard part was the wiring to connect it with factory system in my amg - and sound is great. LOTS of options for sound settings. DVD video is very clear, but controls of movies can be confusing. Im having difficulty with wired connection but I hope its because my USB wire might have a problem. Its loaded up with options but can take a minute to get accustomed and to even know everything it can do.
