The Pros:Lower than average price point for this type of video head unit. Numerous input ports/signals for this price point.
The Cons:DIY installation is frustrating as manual is not very clear on all wire connections. User interface, especially while using iPods, is very slow and has noticeable lag between button presses or scrolling. Radio tuner sensitivity is noticeably lower than competition.
