Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
Programming this thing is like stepping back into the dark ages of technology. Having to cycle through commands is silly in 2016. After a couple of days of working with this, I have most of the buttons working. It still likes to randomly reassign commands from your test phase to the actually using it phase with the engine running phase. The "hey Siri," voice activation especially like to randomly move to a different button. I wish the Maestro was more compatible with my Nissan as there are not a lot of options to choose from. The Access is just as cumbersome and wonky as this one. The last dragon to slay is the track adjust button. It works one way and adjusts the volume the other. I love programming by reading blinking lights as much as the next guy but it is a challenge to troubleshoot when the lights are doing what they are supposed to do but the button commands are not. Someone needs to make one of these units that programs like a Harmony remote online.
Pros: It works mostly Not ridiculously expensive Crutchfield discounts on accessory items are great Crutchfield service is exemplary
Cons: Everything else instructions are not user friendly, troubleshooting support on the PAC site stinks Has a mind of its own when it comes to assigning commands Figuring out what commands in the sequence are not understood by your car is a painful process of trial & error that requires you to run through the entire sequence EVERY time.Crutchfield response on July 27, 2016 Whenever you encounter a problem with anything you purchase from Crutchfield, please contact our tech support team right away.
