The Pros:Display has deep and rich colors that look great. Plenty of output power that can create very loud volume when you need it. Menus are well laid out and easy to work through.
The Cons:Controls are almost impossible to find by touch, need to look over at them as you drive. Shapes around the buttons aren't completely intuitive, takes some time to learn what they all do. Sound settings are buried under several menus, not easy to set on the fly.
