Our take on the Pioneer MVH-X360BT

by Jon Paulette
Pioneer

Why replace your factory radio?

Two good reasons - sound quality and cool features. A new car stereo offers power that's superior to most factory radios, along with more sophisticated tone controls. And most car stereos offer built-in or optional features that add safety and fun to life in your car, including inputs for your iPod or MP3 player, Bluetooth connectivity for hands-free cell phone calls, satellite radio or HD Radio reception, and connections for building an audio system in your car.

Designed for digital

Pioneer's MVH-X360BT digital media receiver lets you enjoy music from your iPhone® or iPod®, select Android™ phones, or a USB thumb drive. You also get built-in Bluetooth® technology and Pioneer performance – all at a surprisingly nice price. Plus, you can still check out the news or a ballgame on good old-fashioned AM/FM radio.

Great tunes, no discs needed

With direct iPod and iPhone control, you can plug your device into the receiver's USB port and make music selections through the receiver. As a bonus, the receiver will also charge your device while you're playing your tunes. If you own an iPhone 4S or iPhone 5, you can take advantage of Siri® Eyes Free functionality with a touch of a button, accessing a variety of functions with your voice commands.

If you're using an iPod, iPhone, or USB device, Pioneer's integrated MIXTRAX virtual DJ technology can turn your music collection into a non-stop playlist, with customizable transitions and effects that will make your car feel more like a club. Android users can control their music via Bluetooth or plug into the front panel USB port and play music while getting a charge. You can also plug in a thumb drive and enjoy MP3, WMA, and WAV files, or use the aux input to connect an MP3 player or portable satellite radio tuner.

Pioneer MVH-X360BT Digital Media Receiver

Pioneer's smartphone-friendly MVH-X360BT receiver also offers hands-free calling and music streaming.

Built-in Bluetooth™

The MVH-X360BT features built-in Bluetooth, so you can enjoy hands-free calling and wireless music streaming while you drive. You'll speak into the included external microphone and hear the other end of the conversation through your vehicle's speakers. With “Guest Mode,” you can add or replace a mobile device with ease -- a great feature for a family car with multiple drivers, or one driver with multiple devices. 

Compact chassis, big performance

With no CD player to worry about, Pioneer's designers were able to fit lots of features into a chassis that's 40% shallower than their CD receivers. Pioneer's powerful MOSFET amplifier gives you outstanding sound, while Advanced Sound Retriever (ASR) technology brings back the musical detail lost when you compress music. A 5-band graphic equalizer lets you adjust the sound to suit your tastes, while a set of RCA preamp outputs will allow you to expand your system for maximum performance.

This digital media receiver will not play CDs. If you want to play CDs in your vehicle, we offer a wide selection of CD receivers.

iPod/smartphone note: If you're going to use your iPod or smartphone with this receiver, be sure to check "Details" for compatibility information.

Bluetooth note: Use of this receiver's Bluetooth features will depend upon your phone's Bluetooth capabilities. Learn more in our article explaining Bluetooth profiles.

    Built-in Bluetooth

    Bluetooth Technology: The MVH-X360BT is equipped with built-in Bluetooth ver. 3.0, allowing you to make and receive phone calls wirelessly through the receiver; as well as stream music wirelessly from your smartphone to the head unit. In order to use Bluetooth wireless technology, your phone must also be Bluetooth compatible and be able to interpret certain profiles. This unit is compatible with the following Bluetooth Profiles:

    • Hands-Free Communication: HFP (Hands Free Profile), HSP (Head Set Profile), OPP (Object Push Profile), PBAB (Phone Book Access Profile).
    • Audio Streaming: A2DP (Advanced Audio Distribution Profile), AVRCP (Audio/Video Remote Control Profile).
    Note: Due to the differences in Bluetooth technology, some Bluetooth enabled devices may be incompatible, function improperly, or may not support all features when used with the Pioneer MVH-X360BT.

    SPP + USB Pairing w/ Guest Mode: With Secure Simple Pairing (SSP), you can easily pair a Bluetooth enabled phone to the MVH-X360BT without having to enter pin codes or go through complicated settings (your phone must also support SSP). When your paired Bluetooth device is in close proximity to the receiver, the auto connection function automatically pairs the two units. Up to 3 Bluetooth-compatible devices can be paired to this head unit, but only one device can be used at a time. You can also pair your Apple iPhone by simply connecting it to the Pioneer head unit via USB and following a single prompt on the head unit's display. In addition, the MVH-X360BT features "Guest Mode", which allows you to add and replace a mobile device instantly to the receiver. Guest Mode is a great feature for a family vehicle with multiple drivers or a driver with multiple devices because it allows users to pair and delete devices easily without a lengthy registration or deletion process.

    Hands-Free Communication (w/ External Mic): The MVH-X360BT supports wireless hands-free communication (HFP/HSP/OPP/PBAB) for your Bluetooth enabled mobile phone. The head unit will display the caller's information and an audible ring tone will be heard through your vehicle's speaker during an incoming call. You can manually answer an incoming call or have the unit automatically answer the call. The MVH-X360BT allows you to carry on a phone conversation from your Bluetooth enabled mobile phone using the head unit's external microphone and your car audio speakers. During a conversation you can adjust the volume, as well as switch between the Private Mode (talking directly on your cell phone) and the Hands Free Mode. Using the MVH-X360BT, you can dial a phone number in one of the following ways:

    • Speed (Preset) Dialing: You can easily store up to six phone numbers as presets for speed dialing.
    • Phone Book: The phone book in your Bluetooth enabled cellular phone will be transferred automatically when the phone is paired to this unit. After finding the number you want to call in the phone book from the head unit, you can select the entry and make the call. If a lot of numbers are registered in the phone book, you can search for a phone number by the contact person's name alphabetically (A-Z).
    • Call Log: The most recent calls dialed, received, and missed are stored in memory. You can browse them and call numbers from these lists.
    Note: The external microphone provides better performance in noisy environments than the integrated microphone found on the front-panel of many aftermarket or factory radios. The microphone features a 13' cord that plugs into the back of the radio, and comes with an adjustable visor-mount clip. The microphone measures 0.475" (diameter) x 1.445" (depth). The unit is not equipped with an integrated microphone.

    Wireless Audio Streaming (with Song/Artist Info): The Pioneer MVH-X360BT also supports wireless audio playback (AD2P) and control (AVRCP) of a Bluetooth enabled audio player or smartphone. The head unit can stream music stored on your Bluetooth enabled device or music apps you have downloaded on your device. The MVH-X360BT will be able to control basic playback features; Play, Pause, & Skip Tracks (app must also support). The head unit will also display your music's song information; such as Artist name and Song/Album title (app must also support). When an incoming call or outgoing call is in progress from your Bluetooth enabled mobile phone, audio streaming will be paused so you can take your call.

    USB & Android Integration

    Front-Panel USB Input (Android Compliant): The unit's front-panel USB (type-A) port allows you to connect a USB Mass Storage Class (MSC) or USB Media Transfer Protocol (MTP) compliant device; such as your Android smartphone, portable digital audio player, or USB thumbdrive. The USB port enables audio playback & control of MP3, WMA, and WAV music files stored on your portable USB MSC/MTP device through the Pioneer MVH-X360BT. USB devices that can be charged via USB will be charged when plugged into the digital media receiver's USB port (1A) and the vehicle's ignition switch is set to ACC or On.

    • File/Track Name List: The Name List feature displays a list of MP3/WMA albums and tracks on a connected USB device, so you can easily access your music. Music files are listed first by Artist name, then by Album name, and finally by Song title.
    • Song/Artist Information: During MP3/WMA playback, the unit displays any recorded ID3 Tag (ver. 1.x/2.x) and WMA Tag information; including artist, song, and album name.
    • Playback Controls: The Pioneer digital media receiver provides basic operations like Play/Pause, Fast Forward/Rewind, Previous/Next Track, and Repeat/Random for USB device playback. When a compatible Android smartphone is connected, the head unit will control music playback functions; you will not be able to control your music from the smartphone.
    Note: The unit's front-panel USB port supports Android OS 4.0+ (Ice Cream Sandwich/Jelly Bean) as a Media Transfer Protocol (MTP) device. It also supports Android OS 2.2+ (Froyo/Gingerbread) as a Mass Storage Class (MSC) device; as of 11/25/2013. The receiver does not support Android OS 3.1+ (Honeycomb) or other Android operating systems not listed.

    MP3/WMA/WAV Playback: The Pioneer MVH-X360BT supports the following types of MP3/WMA/WAV files loaded onto a USB mass storage class device.

    Media Type USB (MSC/MTP)
    File System FAT 12/16/32
    Playable File Types MP3: bit rate of 8-320 kbps w/ sampling rate of 32, 44.1, 48 kHz
    WMA:
    bit rate of 48-320 kbps w/ sampling rate of 32, 44.1, 48 kHz

    Maximum # of Folders/Files 500 folders/15,000 files
    Tags ID3 tags (ver.1.0/1.1/2.2/2.3/2.4), WMA tags

    Media App Control (for Android): The Media App Control mode lets you listen to your favorite music apps on your Bluetooth-paired Android smartphone (2.3+) through the Pioneer head unit and your vehicle's speakers. Media App Control lets you take control of compatible music apps on your paired Android device through the Pioneer MVH-X360BT. Media App Control allows you to play, pause, and change tracks from a compatible music app directly from the controls on the Pioneer head unit. The app's name (i.e. "iHeartAuto"), station identification, and song/artist information will be displayed on the head unit's LCD screen (when applicable, depending on app). Compatible music apps include (as of 11/25/2013):

    Note: Apple iPod/iPhone software updates may change functionality results. If you download a newer software version, you may need to reset the head unit and your iPod/iPhone to regain functionality. If this doesn't work, you may need to wait until a newer software update is available.

    Auxiliary Input: The MVH-X360BT is equipped with a front-panel 3.5mm stereo minijack auxiliary input for connecting external components, such as a portable MP3 player.

    AM/FM + Pandora Radio

    Supertuner IIID AM/FM Tuner: The Supertuner IIID features Feed Forward Control, which avoids multi-path interference. This pre-detection of interference enables quick filter control and results in less distortion. In addition, the Supertuner IIID creates enhanced stereo during multi-path interference, unlike conventional tuners that collapse to mono. Digital processing reduces distortion, and improves Signal-to-Noise Ratio and stereo separation. Advanced analog technology improves signal processing sensitivity.

    • RDS: The Radio Data System (RDS) feature displays radio broadcast information such as artist, title, and album when listening to compatible AM/FM stations.
    • BSM (Best Stations Memory): The BSM (Best Stations Memory) function lets you automatically store the six strongest stations under preset buttons 1-6 of the currently tuned band. The tuner has 3 FM banks and 1 AM bank. You can store 6 presets for each bank giving you a total of 18 FM presets and 6 AM presets.
    • Local Tuning: Local seek tuning lets you tune in only those radio stations with sufficiently strong signals for good reception. There are 4 levels of sensitivity for FM and two levels for AM. The higher settings allow reception of only the strongest stations, while lower settings let you receive progressively weaker stations.

    Pandora Internet Radio (for iPhone & Android): The free Pandora App (either from iTunes Apps or Google Play) lets you play music from the Pandora music service through the Pioneer MVH-X360BT using your USB-connected Apple iPhone (iOS 5.0+) or Bluetooth paired Android smartphone. Your Apple iPhone must be connected to the MVH-X360BT via the appropriate Pioneer iPod connector cable (130CDIU51/130CDIU52, sold separately) or the connector-cable that came with your iPhone. Your Android smartphone must support A2DP/AVRCP/SPP Bluetooth profiles and be paired with the Pioneer MVH-X360BT. Your iPhone or Android smartphone will also need an active Data Plan account with connection to the Internet via 3G, EDGE, or WiFi. The MVH-X360BT provides control over the Pandora music service and displays Artist, Album, and Song information.

    • Station List w/ Shuffle: You can select Pandora stations from your Station List by date or alphabetically (A-Z). You can also listen to songs played randomly from various stations within your Station List.
    • New Stations: New stations can be created based on the current songs or artists playing.
    • Skip Songs: You can skip song tracks within a station. You cannot skip back to a previous song. Pandora limits the number of skips allowed.
    • Thumbs Up/Down: You can give songs a thumbs up or thumbs down to help Pandora personalize stations to suit your preferences.
    • Bookmarking: The song/artist currently being played can be bookmarked & stored in your Pandora account.

    Note: Access to the Pandora service will depend on the availability of a cellular and/or WiFi network for purposes of allowing your iPhone or smartphone to connect to the Internet. Pandora is not supported in Canada and only available in the United States.

    Audio Section

    24 Bit D/A Converter: The Pioneer in-dash head unit utilizes a 24-bit digital to analog converter for superior sound quality.

    MOSFET Amplifier: The MVH-X360BT is equipped with a MOSFET amplifier. Compared to conventional power supplies, the MOSFET amplification circuit is smaller and more efficient, and it delivers increased power with less distortion and absolutely zero on/off switching noise. More power means louder and cleaner music at higher volumes because you're not pushing the limits of the amplification circuit. The power specifications for the MVH-X360BT are compliant with the CEA2006 Mobile Amplifier Power Testing and Measurement standards from the Consumer Electronics Association (CEA). These standards were developed as a way to equitably compare power specs from model to model and between manufacturers.

    • CEA2006 Specs: 14 watts RMS x 4 channels (at 4 ohms, 20Hz-20kHz, 1% THD-N)
    • Continuous Power Output: 22 watts RMS x 4 channels (at 4 ohms, 50Hz-15kHz, 5% THD)
    • Maximum Power Output: 50 watts x 4 channels
    Note: The rear speaker outputs can be set to provide full range output with full fading capability, or they can be set to provide non-fading subwoofer (low-pass) output. When the rear speaker outputs are set to subwoofer mode, the rear preamp outputs also switch from full range to subwoofer outputs. When set for subwoofer operation, you can connect the rear speaker leads directly to two small 4-ohm passive subwoofers or a dual voice coil sub with 4-ohm voice coils. If you prefer to use a single 2-ohm subwoofer, you can connect the woofer to one set of speaker leads, leaving the other set of rear leads disconnected. The maximum output provided when a 2-ohm load is connected to one set of leads is 70 watts.

    2.0-Volt Preamp Outputs + Sub Control: The Pioneer MVH-X360BT features one pair of 2.0-volt preamp outputs. The unit's preamp output scan be configured as fading rear-channel outputs or non-fading subwoofer outputs. When the head unit's preamp output is configured as a subwoofer output, you can select the subwoofer phase (normal/reverse), and the subwoofer gain (+6 to -24).

    Crossovers: The MVH-X360BT employs high pass and low pass crossovers to tailor the head unit to your connected speakers.

    • HPF: The head unit's high pass filter only allows frequencies higher than those in the selected range (50, 63, 80, 100, 125Hz) to your front and rear speakers through the unit's speaker-level or line-level outputs. You can adjust the crossover slope from -12 to -24.
    • LPF: When the preamp output is configured as a subwoofer channel, a low pass filter only allows frequencies lower than those in the selected range (50, 63, 80, 100, 125Hz) to be output to your connected subwoofer. The crossover slope can be set from -12 to -24.

    Equalizer: The Pioneer MVH-X360BT features a Preset & Custom EQ. The built-in equalizer offers 7 preset sound modes (Powerful, Dynamic, Vocal, Natural, Custom 1, Custom 2, and Flat) suitable for the music genre of your choice. The two Custom modes allow you to manually adjust the head unit's 5-band EQ (80Hz, 250Hz, 800Hz, 2.5kHz, 8kHz) from +/-6dB. Custom 1 can be set separately for each source (except for USB/iPod/Pandora); while Custom 2 and the other 5 presets are shared settings used for all sources.

    Advanced Sound Retriever: The Advanced Sound Retriever automatically enhances compressed audio and restores the original richness of the recording. Hear the detail, warmth, and clarity, the way the artist intended it, from all of your highly compressed MP3 and WMA files stored on your USB device, iPod/iPhone, and portable media players. By restoring data (especially higher frequencies) that tends to get lost in the digital compression process, Pioneer's Advanced Sound Retriever technology enhances audio reproduction nearly all the way up to 20 kHz frequencies

    Audio Level Settings: The Pioneer MVH-X360BT digital media receiver offers a variety of audio settings to tailor the bass, treble, and volume level to your preference.

    • Bass Boost The MVH-X360BT features a bass boost function which can be used to enhance low-frequency bass sound. The bass boost function can be set between 0-6.
    • Loudness: The Loudness feature compensates for deficiencies in the low and high sound ranges at low volume. You can set the Loudness feature to Low, Mid, High, or Off.
    • Source Level Adjustment (SLA): This function lets you adjust the volume level of each source to prevent radical changes in volume when switching between sources. Settings are based on the volume level of the FM tuner, which remains unchanged. Each source can be independently adjusted from -4dB to +4dB.

    MIXTRAX: Drawing from Pioneer's rich DJ heritage and passion for music, MIXTRAX delivers a unique DJ infused listening experience to listeners in the car. MIXTRAX is an innovative Pioneer technology that creates a non-stop mix of your music library complete with a range of DJ-inspired effects. MIXTRAX takes your typical music listening experience and creates a non-stop mix of your music with 9 random DJ effects and transitions, by removing the breaks and pauses normally introduced between tracks and replacing them with various beats. MIXTRAX is compatible with USB-connected iPhone, iPod, USB MSC device, and select Android devices. There is also a Short Playback option which limits the amount of time each track plays; select from 1, 1.5, 2, 2.5, or 3 minutes.

    Note: The MIXTRAX function does not work in App mode or with the Pandora App for iPod/iPhone/iPad. It is also not supported by USB MTP devices.

    Display Features

    Detachable Face Security: The Pioneer MVH-X360BT in-dash digital media receiver features detachable face security. No face case is included with this unit. An optional soft face case (142DFC1X, sold separately) can be purchased for this unit. A face-fixing screw is supplied for making the face non-detachable, if desired.

    LCD w/ LED Backlight: The MVH-X360BT features a single-line, multi-segmented LCD with LED backlight that offers a black background and white alphanumeric character text (up to 12 characters). The display has two brightness settings to adjust the brightness of the display according to the surrounding illumination. You can change this setting within the menu to On or Off.

    MIXTRAX Illumination: MIXTRAX features a club-style illumination that enhances the mood with a dynamic dance club-like lighting effect. As MIXTRAX begins, lights start pulsing to the beat of the music, adding an extra level of entertainment. You can choose different patterns of lighting variations from sound pressure level or low-pass synchronization modes.

    Display Illumination/Clock Display: When the Clock Display has been turned on, pressing and holding the "SRC" button turns off audio output, but the clock display and button illumination remains on (you can press the "DISP" button to turn off). When the Clock Display has been turned off, pressing and holding the "SRC" button turns the unit off completely. Even if you have turned the radio completely off you can view the clock display by pressing the "DISP" button. The clock will then remain On until you turn it back Off. When the unit is On, you can select between the clock display or the audio track/tuner display.

    Remote Control

    Wireless Remote Control: The MVH-X360BT comes with an IR wireless remote control. The remote allows you to control the volume, switch between sources, pause source, change the display, and adjust the audio. You can also mute the volume (function that cannot be performed from the front panel). In addition, you can answer/end calls from a Bluetooth connected smartphone.

    Steering Wheel Remote Compatibility: The head unit features an OEM steering wheel remote control input on the rear of the unit that lets you keep your vehicle's factory radio steering wheel remote controls when used with an optional steering wheel audio control adapter (sold separately). Please consult Crutchfield's Outfit My Car to see if your vehicle is compatible.

    Great receiver for money

    Written By LanceB, Saint Marys, OH on Sunday, July 20, 2014

    Pros:
    Very easy to install and program. BT audio and phone work great.

    Much improved upgrade over factory unit. Was easy to install and program (especially with the installation bracket and harness included). Display is somewhat hard to see in daylight but still recommend unit if you do not need a CD player. Blue tooth very easy to program along with good sound quality.
    Pros:
    Hand free blue tooth, sound quality.
    Cons:
    Display hard to see in day light.

    Pretty Good

    Written By Dave, Rochester, NY on Tuesday, July 01, 2014
    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
     
    It was very easy to install. The hardest part is setting up the wiring plug prior to cracking open the dash. I enjoy the Bluetooth audio and so far the calling works but I wish their was not an external wire for the mic. Have not tried all the features yet.
    Pros:
    Easy install.
    Cons:
    External mic could be better for hiding in the car.

    Great Product

    Written By Logan M, Coal City, IL on Friday, June 27, 2014
    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
     
    I think that this radio is perfect for that person that has a phone that streams music. The fact that it also has a USB attachment and AUX is also very nice because you basically have any way of playing music that could want besides CD's but lets face it...who does use CD's anymore?
    Pros:
    USB, AUX, and Bluetooth compatible. The Bluetooth works great and people can still hear you clear with the windows open.
    Cons:
    Only thing I would say is the CD slot missing for those that use CD's

    Overall a good buy

    Written By Brian, Oxford, MI on Thursday, June 26, 2014
    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
     
    Overall a good value at $100. I have no need for a CD player any longer, so the fact that it did not have one was fine. I really liked the fact that it offered hands free for my phone. I was skeptical on how well it would work. The fact that it came with an external mic gave me hopes that it would be at least useable. I have had several phone conversations using the hands free option and everyone says the sound quality is good. On my end I'm getting a full duplex call too, so I've been very pleased with it. I do not like the brightness of the source, phone, and band buttons. At night, they are so bright they distract me as I drive. Also, the screen is not bright enough during the day. The dimmer setting is so slight, it's useless.
    Pros:
    Built in hands free and music via Bluetooth. Easy to use. Good value for your money.
    Cons:
    Source, phone, and band buttons are too bright and distract me when I drive. No separate bass/treble control. Tone is controlled by preset equalizer and loudness. This is one of my biggest pet peeves for any car audio.

    Modernized my jalopy

    Written By tofu_dog, San Francisco, CA on Monday, June 23, 2014
    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
     
    This head unit replaced a tape deck in a 2001 Corolla, bringing my car into the modern age. It was a snap to install. Sound quality is superior to the factory unit, but mostly I wanted the unit for Bluetooth and hands-free. Bluetooth streaming from an Android phone works well, and call quality through the unit and mic (mounted next to the rear view mirror) is also quite good. The display is readable under most lighting, and while the blue light is a bit on the bright side, with the dimmer on at all times, it's not too distracting. If anything, I wish the lighting was more understated; car manufacturers seem to get this right in their factory units. Flashy lighting aside, the interface is pretty good, considering how much functionality needs to be packed into a single DIN unit. Once programmed for your phone, it's pretty intuitive.
    Pros:
    Good sound, Bluetooth, good call quality, front USB charging port
    Cons:
    Display hard to read in direct sunlight, 80s style lighting

    Wonderful head unit

    Written By j, Plano, TX on Saturday, June 21, 2014
    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
     
    I have owned this item for about 6 months now. I love it. I mainly purchased this item because of the simplicity of not having a CD mechanism built into it. I don't use CDs and haven't for a long time now. Connecting the phone to the unit is simple. Crutchfield does not disappoint with the included MasterSheet and everything needed to install. The only thing that I notice that isn't included are the end caps to crimp the wires but that is expected. (first time purchasing a head unit from them) It wasn't a big deal because I solder the wires and heat shrink them anyways. If you are looking for a replacement to a sub-par stereo in your car or upgrading from stock, then this will be a wonderful choice because of the price and features you get with it.
    Pros:
    Simple design, sound quality is decent, price is great.
    Cons:
    When using the Pandora app on the phone, and choosing Pandora as a source, it sometimes doesn't connect. The unit will display something along the lines of unable to connect. Another con that I found was when using Pandora and you turn off the car, the music will continue to play through the phone for a few seconds (anywhere between 1sec to 10 seconds).

    Nice unit

    Written By Brian, Georgia on Sunday, June 08, 2014
    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
     
    Really all most people will ever need in a receiver. Has outputs for amps, etc,. Built in crossover and EQ. Can't imagine what else more expensive receivers can add that would justify the cost. Easy to install. Took maybe 30 minutes.
    Pros:
    Value. Has most all of the bells and whistles. Visibility in sunlight is better than expected but not perfect. I was concerned the blue lights on the unit would bother me a night but they do not.
    Cons:
    Tiny labeling of buttons impossible to read if you are over 40. Balance, Fade and other audio adjustments requires going through too many menus to get to. Should have an "audio" button to take you straight there as my Jeep requires constant adjustment depending if the roof is up or not. As with all units these days, displays are too flashy and busy. Wish they made more OEM type aftermarket units without all the flashing lights and used more manual controls instead of having to go into menus.

    Install went very easy with good instructions. Though this product will not work in the vehicle. Yes I followed the Crutchfield website and it helped choose this deck.
    Pros:
    Easy to install and the blue tooth was very easy to set up.
    Cons:
    The deck is to long and the back hits my heater box. So it sticks out about a 1/2" to far from the dash.

    Which i could see in the sun

    I was just replacing a factory unit in an older truck and wanted Bluetooth. This does that just fine, have had no problems connecting and sound is good. What i don't like is the display is hard to read, this is probably cause this is my secondary vehicle, my daily driver has lcd touchscreen so that is what i am use to. This unit if it's sunny out and i have sunglasses one i can't see it. Not a huge deal was just surprised how much better my screen is in my other vehicle. Overall it's great option as a cheap basic unit to be able to use Bluetooth but if i was putting this in my daily driver I would probably go for something a little nicer.
    Pros:
    Price, Bluetooth, easy to install
    Cons:
    display unreadable in sun

    a fine, inexpensive receiver

    For the price how can you complain? Good radio. Good sound. Good looks. Easy to hook up to my father-in-law's 1989 BMW. Not much else to say but it does the job and provides a nice update to an classic car.
    Pros:
    Good looking, great sound, simple controls
    Cons:
    Would have been nice if this unit offered storage of an MP3 player INSIDE the unite (like some Sonys) -- note there is plenty of room inside the (mostly empty) unit. Amazing how they have miniaturized the electronics these days.

    Overall great unit for the price

    Bought this unit to replace the factory head unit in my Ford F-150. The built in double DIN had radio and CD player but did not have auxilary or bluetooth, which I wanted. Installation was easy with the included harness and dash kit. Was happy that the unit included a external microphone as every unit I have used without a external microphone was unusable for calls. Setup was easy and pairing my phone was also easy. The unit will display lots of useful information on the display, though if you would like the clock to display you are stuck with only seeing "BT Audio" and the time. I wish it would display the time and also cycle through some of the other data. Overall the unit is very nice and for the price it was well worth it. My only few complaints is that I have not found a setting to stop the whatever I was listening to last to autoplay when I start my car. I like the feature but I would like the option to turn it off. Also, I wish they would have placed the "Pause/play" button in a more prominent location. Since this is mainly a bluetooth unit it is nice to have the controls I use the most easily accessible. The pause button is integrated into the "4" key and is difficult to find while driving. I with they would have made this a dedicateed button on the left side. Phone calls work very well using the external mic. I mounted my mic on the driver sun visor. I am using an Android device and the built in Siri integration also works for Google Now by holding down M.C. button.
    Pros:
    Great price and easy instillation. External microphone is a nice addition and lots of inputs for your phone. Screen is bright and readable (I dont have as much an issue as others have with the brightness). Google Now (or Siri) can be activated using the unit.
    Cons:
    Wish the "Pause/Play" button was in a better location. Making phone calls on the unit is very clunky. Would be much easier to just use your phone or dial using voice activation. I wish you could always view the clock while also seeing other data on the display.

    Great radio w bluetooth

    I wanted to replace the OEM radio in my 1995 F-150 that would have blue tooth. Features for price was a big factor in my decision. This radio was said to interface with iPhone for hands free use with phone and audio playback. It is as advertised. Setup was as easy as any bluetooth interface I have ever used. I used the OEM speakers and the sound is really good though I am sure it would be improved with better speakers if that is in your budget. I have not used the handsfree mic often and there seems to be some wind noise with the window down but that is to be expected. Install was a breeze wit the most time consuming part was soldering the wiring harness but it is worth the effort.

    I put this in a 99 4 Runner to replace the worn out stocker. I was amazed at the quality of the sound and the ease of set up. It took awhile to get use to using a remote. It was great to see that Crutchfield's level of service has not diminished at all. You won't be disappointed.
    Pros:
    Ease of use. Sound quality.
    Cons:
    None to date

    Not bad for the money

    This isn't a bad little box for the money you pay for it. It does everything a cheap replacement for an aged OEM unit should do. The bluetooth works well, the microphone is good, it's relatively easy to use, and it sounds good. The complaints about the blue buttons on the left are justified, they are just less annoying in my car because of the placement of the radio compared to the driver. The display is a bit hard to see at times, but I can read it. One thing I hate is when you plug your phone in to USB, it automatically switches to the USB from the source you were on previously and you can't turn this "feature" off. Then when you start the car the next time, the unit is turned off and you have to re-select your source.
    Pros:
    Works well, sounds good, does it's job.
    Cons:
    Display isn't great, auto source selection when plugging your phone in to the USB.
