I would give this item 5 stars but we had some troubles at first. This is set up so I can utilize the 8.4 inch screen that comes in the 2012 Chrysler 300 and the new JVC I bought. Crutchfield techs were relentless in helping me solve the problem which was the kit needed to be upgraded which I did and now works perfectly. But I feel I shouldn't of had to do the upgrade it was truly a hassle but I'm now satisfied.
Pros: Works as advertised
Cons: Needed upgrade

This product replicates the on-screen controls from the factory with physical buttons and attempts to provide them as on-screen also. Unfortunately the display does not show the controls for both heating/cooling zones, only the drivers. Multiple firmware updates has not corrected this. Also the display for the backup camera is terrible. It is wavy. So far the only answers the manufacturer provide is to exchange it again. After multiple exchanges the problem does not change. I cannot recommend this solution based on the issues and lack of manufacturer support.
Pros: Allows to replace with more modern head unit if willing to live with the cons.
Cons: No manufacturer support Display not showing all controls after multiple firmware updates Backup camera display is wavy
