To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we do not use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
to the point - buttons on the side are not easy to use since they are a bit small. They do not always respond on the first touch. This is not a big deal for my Buick since I was able to integrate my steering wheel controls to it :) - display is great. no issues here. It dims when it is supposed to when the lights turn on. how much it dims is adjustable - the sound is great, but that's because my Buick had the high level inputs for the factory amplifier. So I cannot truly comment on the sound for the stereo itself. - installation - well this will be different for everyone. I did have some challenges with the mounting kit i bought and this stereo. from the stereo itself one of the harnesses did not fit in the connector. I had to shape the connector with a file for it to go in. One of the threads for the mounting screws was bigger than the others. I could not find a proper screw for it and had to tap it again. After all was said and done it looked great. - Camera - no issues here really. Every once in a while, when I go to reverse the camera will not turn on, but i don't know if this is a stereo issue or an issue with the signal I chose for reverse. - Android - the interface is simple and responds well. Its not on par with todays smart phones, but for me it does not have to be since I use the stereo the most. My music plays without issues too. Youtube does not always run as smooth as on a phone, but it works. - navigation - I have it connected but i don't use it. I have not been able to download a voice in english, but spanish works for me. Either way i turn to my phone for GPS. - Hands free - I was hoping to use this more, but on the freeway it captures too much noise (road noise/vibration) and the person on the other does not understand me. I think there is an option for an external mic and will probably explore this later.
Loved the way packaging was done to protect the screen from scratches. The install was a challenge due to the sligh9larger boarder not fitting the installation kit. However wiring spot on. And support was great.
