Love the big screen! Make sure the area you are going to install is clear as the screen can get in the way. I installed mine into a 2013 Sienna. The screen has many way to adjust its placement which was good because the shifter was hitting the screen at its original location. Slid the screen all the way up and good to go!

This is an amazing head unit ! I've been installing audio gear since the mid 80s and have used all types and brands of audio gear And this is by far one of if not the best head unit I've had the pleasure of installing and setting up . The DSP/ Crossover / EQ and time alignments section sets this unit apart from anything else .There's no need for outbound DSP with this unit . Sounds Amazing !!
Pros: Looks / Sound /function

Looks good, sounds even better. Installed in my 19 Toyota Tacoma TRD Pro w/ oem JBL system. Just adding this head unit added needed volume and sound stage that the stock (Premium) system lacked. I like the gestures to control the volume on the screen, but it does not work while using Android Auto. Hopefully that can be fixed with a firmware update. Also added the Escort harness to the Maestro rr2 for my 360c radar detector, nice having it pop up on the screen when an event happens, also adds functions. Now my detector can auto mute after the initial alert. Had to modify the mounting kit, drilled holes 1/2" back on side brackets. This allowed me to suck the head unit farther back in the dash. Giving it a more factory look. Highly recommend for the Toyota Tacoma. If having issues with wireless android auto , search youtube. You can make most android handsets project wirelessly by going into dev mode and selecting wireless projection in android auto settings.
Pros: Large screen, sound quality, options to add radar detector, wireless android auto, vehile info if using Maestro
Cons: gestures do not work while using Android auto

Great addition to our 2011 Mustang GT/CS, helping to update the interior. Was worried the large screen would be a bit much. Screen is bright and clear for daytime without blinding me at night. Thankfully, it fits right in and sounds great with the stock Shaker 500 speakers. Even so, the speakers are up next for an update. I do wish the unit would slowly bring up the volume at power up.

I installed this multimedia player in my 2014 Ford EL Expedition king ranch with the meastro adapter. I am extremely impressed with the sound quality and picture quality. I retained the steering wheel controls, Microsoft sync, and rear seat entertainment system. The stereo gave me apple car play, amazing sound controls, a digital dashboard and actual individual tire pressure monitor system instead of just an idiot light. The stereo is so good I couldn't stand having the stock speakers and changed those out the next weekend. I am completely happy with my purchase and the service and help I received from Crutchfield. I would give the stereo and Crutchfield both 10 stars if I could.
Pros: Gained a digital dash, and apple car play, and an amazing sound system
Cons: It's a large unit so a few buttons are covered, but still accessible. I have owned the vehicle for a few years and know which button is which without having to tilt the screen to see them. I don't consider is a big enough deal to Want a smaller screen. Plus I can still get the the buttons easily, it's not like they are made inaccessible.

So far so good! Its a true game changer to have wireless apple carplay. Feels like a new car. I still haven't figured out some of the features yet but it is pretty amazing just to have this size screen for navigation. One negative thing I would say is that installation is not very easy even with the ready harness it is pretty complicated. Luckily the crutchfield tech support was on point to walk me through it all as it does not come with step by step instructions.
Pros: Amazing size wireless is bomb great tech support available to help with install
Cons: install is hard no proper instructions

This head unit is amazing. Instalation was easy and the features are great. Wireless mirror is the best option, even better than Android Auto because you can control your phone using the unit screen, so it is not just a mirror for your screen is way more than that. I'm about to install 4 cameras on my 3rg Gen Ram, hopping blinkers will give me the option to active blind spot cameras. For whatever reason the resolution looks much better with Apple car than Android Auto (nothing about phone settings because I'm using Android Auto app in developers mode allowing 1080p resolution. Sometimes with Android Auto has come lacks. Kind of stopping once a while. For that price I was expecting a better screen with a better resolution, but looks like is what you can get as an aftermarket unit. I'm pretty happy with my new unit.
Pros: Good quality unit. Android Auto lacks resolution
Cons: Main unit keeps the screen too outside of the dash. Screen is not detachable.

I purchased this rather pricey unit at Crutchfield because of their excellent customer service, their attention to detail, but mostly because of their outstanding reputation as the go to dealer should problems arise. I knew that I was going to install this unit myself, and I knew if I ran into problems or issues, They would be there to help me out. That being said, I did install the unit myself, and I did not run into any problems or issues. but I know I felt better knowing help was a phone call away. Thanks guys (and gals).
Pros: Great selection Great follow through Fast shipping
Cons: None that I can think of
