The Pros:Touchscreen buttons are large enough that they can be easily accessed while driving. User interface is easy to get used to, not much of a learning curve. Installation is made easier with well labelled wires and a good manual.
The Cons:Won't play movie files from the iPhone. Music streamed through Bluetooth sounds low quality.
