This deck is great once the initial setup is completed.

 

All reviews that read prior to buying this said it was a complicated system and very hard to set up and understand. I saw countless articles saying that the manual was virtually useless. Well a lot of that is right. This system is complicated.....if...

The iphone/ipod controls are great. I really like the option to control via iphone or via the deck itself ; The blue tooth is seamless & easy to use & the integrated phone book is awesome ; The sound is great ; The deck looks great installed

Initial setup is complicated & the manual isnt very clear ; The morning after installing the system, It wouldnt recognize any music on my iphone. I sync'd the phone at the end of the night & couldn't get it to play until I reset it. Its Good no

Fantastic iPhone 3G and 3GS integration, plug and play ; Bluetooth phone integration and sound quality excellent ; Good looking Unit ; Feature packed

Menu navigation requires you to be a knob expert.... literally

Great car audio system for CD, HD Radio, Ipod.

 

Installed on my 2003 BMW 5-series car. Professionally installed at Best Buy in about an hour. Immediate improvement over the factory stereo, which had no way to play my iPhone 3G music except lousy RF system using car tuner. I also wanted a Bluetooth...

Excellent sound. Added KDC- HR200 HD Radio Tuner, a real plus. Crisp, clear reception. iPod interface works great with front USB port, controlling from ipod or from the unit. Bluetooth reception is very good, interface OK

Microphone for bluetooth not the greatest. People hear me fine, but said I sounded "tinny." Checked on my home voice mail, easy to understand but did not sound like me. Complex controls due to many functions and levels with few buttons/dials

Consumer review by:

Way too complicated.

 

I am a union sound mixer in the film industry, Knobs and computers are my business. I knew this unit was going to be complicated but I thought I was capable of mastering it. Wrong! This thing is so complicated I found it not worth the effort. Simple...

USB and AUX inputs, although USB is limited

Controls are buried in a very complex system of menus. Tuner is difficult to use. Bluetooth poor, callers can't hear you. EQ controls have little to no effect, USB input accepts only Mp3 and WMA files. IPod control is poor

Very nice

 

Only bad thing I have to say is it took 2 days to install, for 2 reasons. 1) it was sub zero temperatures and 2)I had to do major modification to the mounting location on the vehicle. Lots of cutting and dry fitting for placement. I gave radio 5 stars...
