Pros: Touchscreen is responsive. Sound is better than the stock radio (clear, more powerful). Backup camera input works well. Remote steering control also works with adapter kit. Good FM reception. Aux & USB work well. I don't get the annoying warning screen I see others complain about. I did put in the parking bypass though. Haven't tried the DVD yet, but honestly I didn't buy it for that. I bought this model incase I wanted to use one of those phone holders that go into the CD/DVD slot.
Cons: The layout of the buttons are not ideal. The mute button is too close to the volume button. When I drive over bumps in the road, my finger might move up/down and miss what I'm aiming for. Horizontal button layout would be better, or just use steering wheel controls if you have them. The only other issue is the Bluetooth autoconnect. I like to use my remote start, When I do, and when I get to the car, the Bluetooth won't connect after several retries. I have to go into the Bluetooth menu and connect manually. Not a huge issue, but I rather not take my phone out of my winter jacket to do this.
- Backup camera compatible
- AUX Input
- FM Stereo
This stereo fit the bill perfectly and the price at $170 was right. Install was intuitive, once I figured out the wiring on my vehicle. That said, operation is pretty simple and easy to figure out. The screen is large and bright, mechanical buttons on the stereo face are easy to access and large enough to access without accidentally hitting the wrong one, and the Infinity sound system in my Hyundai Santa Fe sounds 10x better than the stock LG Nav head unit that I had previously.
That said, there are a couple of minor thing that I would've liked to see different:
- the AUX input is on the BACK of the unit. This requires you to run the AUX cord somewhere behind your cash while trying to find some way for it to be accessible. I had to route mine into the glove box. Most other stereos I've seen and had have the AUX input right on the front of the unit. I just can't understand why Pioneer didn't put it there...
- I wish there were additional color theme options. JVC has a similarly-priced double-din unit that offers a large array of customizable theme options (and has the AUX input on the front), but unfortunately I've never liked the layout of JVC stereos. This Pioneer unit comes with blue, red, and green. The blue matches perfectly with my Santa Fe's dash color, but I like customizing stuff. Oh well.
For $170, I think I got a great deal, and I plan on purchasing another for our Suburban. I'm pleased with the stereo, but deducted a star because of those items above.
1) put car into reverse to bring up camera
2) on the camera screen click the X
3) go to camera settings and turn camera on and off.
4) make sure setting is on battery
This will fix the camera from constantly popping up. So when you go in reverse it pops up and when you switch gears it's gone. But be warned, if you want to view what's going on and click on the camera icon you will have to redo those steps. Otherwise it will stay put unless you reset the battery.
My car Toyota Corolla 2012 you need buy separate a double din dash kit 👍 very easy installing
Very happy with this radio!!
