I put a pretty nice sony in my car recently, it has all the bluetooth goodies, DVD, pandora, usb and 1/8" inputs. no nav but I can view the MotionX nav on it from by hooking up my i-phone. I have also herd that some of the pioneer units dont work with i-phone OS 6, look into that if your an i-phone user.
$60, the cost of the unit itself.
I received the unit last night and played with it for 15 minutes.
+ Unit is smaller than I thought
+ It connected to my phone immediately
+ Music sounded great 8.5/10
+ Phone quality over speaker was pretty good 7/10.
+ Plenty of cord to install in the most logical of places with hidden wires.
- By holding and releasing the button you can call someone from your list. After 3 attempts, it never called the correct person. This might be something I can fix in android, because my usual voice dialer works great. This brought up a different one i've never seen before.
- My friend said they heard a buzzing noise when I talked. This is due to a poorly grounded AUX input but can be fixed with a $11 ground loop isolater
, which I'll order soon.
I attached a new pic which diagrams the mounting points I am considering. Since the unit is almost always is glowing, I am trying to decide which mounting point was the most visually appealing. The circles are close to the actual size of the unit. I am strongly considering points 1 and 2. Thoughts?
