The Pros:Controls are easy to work with as you drive. Lots of ways to play media supported. Excellent output power, can run after-market speakers without an additional amp easily.
The Cons:A bit hard to mount properly, should have some experience before attempting. Going through the settings is tedious and time consuming. Menus don't look very good, poor presentation.
