Good: Very sleek design, full of features, a bargain if you shop around ie around £400
Bad: Doesn't have DAB
Comment: I have had this unit installed for a week or so now and I can honestly say its a very smart bit of kit, I have read the official review for this unit and find it very one sided..
Screen- ok so the screen isn't a hd jaw dropping experience.. But we're talking about a car entertainment centre not a high def TV
No DAB- this is a fair point however I would much prefer the sd card option if I had the choice! Lets not forget this is a single din unit we have to trim fat somewhere.
Lack of display when using iPod function- I struggle to see this as an issue as 99% of people use 'shuffle' ! Hopefully we all know what songs are on our devices :)
I have a few positives to state with this stereo
The value for money is great if you pay the right price (£400) c'mon it is pioneer!!!
Whoever reviewed tho missed a few pros!!
You get 130 some colours for the buttons and screen so any vehiclel illumination will compliment this unit.
It has Bluetooth for mobiles yes! But it's a parrot module meaning it stores 1000 contacts for up to 5 phones ! Very clear I might add!!
The equaliser and other sound adjustables are awesome you really can get a great personalised set up for anyone who likes the high pass low pass bass tweaks :) (2 custom settings along with several presets)
Last but not least - The vague review given says you can only watch DVDs in traffic as you need the parking brake active.. True! This goes for any device of this kind!! I personally don't like to watch a DVD in 50 sections of 2 minutes so I pull over and enjoy! :-P
This is not top of the range but its far from bottom guys! Pioneer speaks for itself .. Unless your a critic and need to find bad points you'll love it ;) don't pay more than £450 guys!
