The Pros:Attractive design, looks really great especially in the dark. Installation is very easy, good for entry-level users. Bluetooth functions consistently, great for hands-free calling.
The Cons:Sound lacks crispness, everything is a bit muddy. High-end speakers still sound poor when working with this head unit. Controls are a little complicated, take awhile to figure out.
