Backlight stopped working
1999 Toyota Camry CE
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
Ease of Use
I loved that this unit was packed with features and was a bargain. The HD radio works great, even if it does sometimes seem to take a while to link up. The bluetooth was "meh." I gave up on using it because nobody could hear me clearly. The unit only works with an up to 4GB thumb drive (8GB drive would get Reading for a long time and then eventually fail). Did not use the iPod feature, nor the aux port. CDs and MP3 CDs played very nicely. Having said all that, I was very happy with this unit up until a month ago. Suddenly the backlight started flickering... it was just a minor annoyance at first, and then it got worse and worse until now when the unit's screen is sometimes totally dark. Thank goodness I was able to get back to my favorite settings before it ended up this way, but if I ever have to do some electrical work to my car and the unit gets reset, I'm going to be stuck. This quality problem really has me bummed about what was, otherwise, a purchase I was very happy with.
Pros: MP3+WMA CDs, nice CD sound, USB port very convenient, easy to use, stylish, remote is good
Cons: Quality, Limits USB device to 4GB, bluetooth mic quality is pretty awful, linking to HD stations can take a long time
