A Great Deal for the money
2006 Jeep Liberty
Ease of Use
I guess I expected the radio to sound as good or better than the original equipment Jeep, but it doesn't. After playing with the settings, which are right between easy and difficult to locate and set, it sounds 'good'. I suppose it has a little different sound, which might be my angst, but it is decent enough. The additional inputs (Aux & USB) are a huge bonus and a (working) CD that handles MP3's as well as the standards is awesome. I like the looks of the unit, was able to dim the display, FM has 3 x 6 (18) station settings (not 3 like some claim) [plus 2 x 6 AM for what they're worth] and an oddly named array of EQ presets. Using the Crutchfield supplied adapter ring, antenna adapter and Jeep (Dodge) wiring block made the installation perfect. I pre soldered (and heat shrinked) the adapter to the radio leads prior to installation, to make total install time about 30 minutes. Add an hour for the programming (which looks more like a journey than a destination) and it's a pretty cool rig.
Pros: Many updated features over the OE radio and looks a little better too
Cons: Not quite as great sounding as I had anticipated and difficult to change sound functions while driving.
