    Non-intuitive menu driven interface. Most functions difficult to find. They try to make a radio fancy by taking away all the buttons and knobs and they end up just making it hard to operate. Station title and song title do not display correctly. Don't recommend.

    Pros: Sound fairly ok.

    Cons: Non-intuitive menu driven interface. Most functions difficult to find. Station tilte and song title do not disply correctly. Don't recommend.

    Very attractive looking radio but I had speaker popping noises added additional ground wire that did not help. Now after 8 months the USB port when is use is flashes red and won't play songs.

    Pros: Radio looks awesome.

    Cons: Had issues from day 1; speaker interference; hands free talking never has worked now USB flashes red and will not play music. This is probably the reason it was discontinued.

    Well its everything i want, course im a meat and potatoes guy. It has aux capibilty other various features some i have yet to explore. However the guys that installed it may have done something wrong because i cant pick up AM signal worth spit. They said it was because of a bad tuner, i find that hard to believe. Maybe i was better off installing it myself instead of a radio company. I purchased it from an online retailer before it was available on Crutchfield unfortunately.

    Love this stereo. It has all the functions that I want (3.5 mm, USB, bluetooth, AM/FM, CD) and was painless to install. The sound quality is far better than my old factory installed stereo. I gave it 4 stars on Easy To Use but that's just in comparison to the latest touch screen stereos (Which may be a little unfair).

    Pros: Installs quickly. Great sound. Easy to connect BT.

    Cons: Although it has many customizable features, it can be a little tricky initially set up.

    Great Stereo for the Price

    Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

    This unit was a purchase for my son's 2009 Fusion and looks and sounds great with the factory speakers. We decided to have the unit professionally installed vs. doing it ourselves in the cold garage during the middle of winter and glad we did! The BT feature is probably what I am most impressed with and how it connects to your phone for both phone calls and audio streaming. Pairing to an iphone 4S and 5C was flawless. For phone features you can set to auto answer for incoming calls which I felt was a plus for a young driver that needs less distractions fumbling for buttons to answer a phone. Access to your phone book from the phone is displayed on the screen in several options. All of your music files on your phone are accessible through the unit as well with ability to connect via BT, USB and Aux port. USB connection provides the best sound performance and also allows the MixTrax feature to function which is a cool with the flashing lights to the beat of the music. This was a great purchase and my son is very happy with it. We are now trying to determine if adding a sub and new aftermarket speakers would make the unit sound even better! I highly suggest purchasing a full kit from Crutchfield for installation as it makes life much easier and allows you to keep steering wheel controls. A heated garage is always a plus as well!

    Pros: Very easy to operate Offers tons of features to connect with your smart phone for music and phone options. Lighted display and button options allow you to match the look of the rest of your dash lighting.

    Cons: None

    Absolutely GREAT radio!!! Pioneer has so many great and easy to use features on this head unit. Large rotary knob in the center allows quick scrolling through menus and searches. This head unit is easy to link to a phone via Bluetooth and can search through Pandora with built in radio controls. Phone and other device connectivity works flawlessly. Connected to Pandora via Bluetooth allows song skipping on the radio and displays song/artist info. Shutting the car off and upon restart automatically reconnects and resumes playing. Bluetooth linked wireless talking sounds great and easy to use. This is a amazing radio and even better at the price it is!

    Pros: Ease of use. Connectivity functionality. Price for amount of features!

    Cons: Display is kind of bright

    This unit sounds great and looks awesome. It's a Pioneer! I have had this unit for only a couple of weeks. The only complaint I have is that the "dimmer" function could be a little more functional. Even with the dimmer "ON" the unit is still very bright. When I match the colors of the radio to my trucks instrument panel, it lights up the entire crew cab. This is not a problem during the day time. However, at night it is blinding. I have to keep the "Key" color on a dark blue so it is not so bright.

    Pros: Easy-to-use, customizable to any interior, great sound quality, Great Price!

    Cons: The only complaint so far is the brightness of the unit even if the dimmer is "ON".

    Verified customer (What's this?)
    Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

    Excellent product - looks to have been superseded by the FHX720BT. Great sound, great external microphone and very easy install. The Crutchfield kit which includes the fascia and harness makes the install very straight forward - just match up the wire colors, solder together, plug and play. Comments so far from using bluetooth calls have been crystal clear clarity from the microphone, which was one of the main reasons I went for this unit. The look of the unit is one of personal taste - granted there are more attractive head units out there; for me the other reason I went for this particular model is that it doesn't look very expensive, so will likely not be the subject of any unwanted attention. 10 out of 10 and great service from Crutchfield

    Pros: - Excellent sound quality - External high quality microphone - Remote handset - Great value - Lighter than OEM head unit

    Cons: - Doesn't look high end (but then it isn't)

    2004 Pontiac Grand Prix

    Verified customer (What's this?)
    Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

    I replaced my 2004 Pontiac Grand Prix's factory radio with this Pioneer unit. Decided to keep the car for a few more years and wanted the bluetooth connectibility for the Ipad and for a telephone. I'll admit, doing this yourself can seem intimidating but I decided to give it a go. First, the most important thing is to have the right tools. Spend a couple of bucks and by a tool to pry off your car panel. It made it so easy and worked like a champ. I also looked at Youtube for some videos on installation and the radio. Unbelievably great information. When the unit arrived, I did the wiring in the basement on my work bench. I bought crimp caps from Radio Shack to connect the wires and they worked great. There were a couple of extra red wires which concerned me but a quick call to Crutchfields incredible tech support answered the question in a second. The actual install was easy. The hardest part was unplugging the factory radio which was just a tight connector. Once in, turned it on, worked like a champ. It looks great, sounds great, and now has all the bluetooth connectabilty I wanted. The CD player is almost obsolete now. The unit comes with a neat feature called Mixtrax which flashes the unit's lights to the music. The manual was unclear about this function but I called Crutchfield and learned that this works ONLY with music on a USB thumb drive. I bought a couple of low profile thumbs and uploaded some MP3's to them and the feature works great. My good old Pontiac is new!

    Pros: *Bluetooth connectability for a phone is a great feature *Lights are adjustable and fun *Sound quality is very good *Install is easy with a little preparation *Great to connect ipod to unit *Much better than old radio with new features *Easy to setup with a little experimenting

    Cons: *The manual is not very well written but you can get the information on Youtube

    Comments for 93 Corvette, Series C4

    NVJJ from Burgess, VA on 12/2/2014

    Verified customer (What's this?)
    Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

    I have a 93 Corvette, my notes maybe applicable to all C4 series model years. The manual is too hard on old eyes; the fonts are way too small and too lite for easy reading. The SCR button does not turn the unit off completely. If you just want to hear the radio or CD, the speakers are activated when the vehicle is started. If you turn the radio off the speakers stay on with a hum noise and the antenna stays up. It is a nuisance listening to the speaker hum. The antenna going up and down every time vehicle is started and amplifiers being on at each speaker Bose speaker during a non-use creates costly wear on items to be rebuilt or replaced; price out those amplifiers. I was told the speakers and antenna would be off, during an off mode, which did not work out. The only way to get them off is to open the door, not practical at 60 mph. If you use the vehicle occasionally it may be practical to disconnect the battery to prevent battery drain. But the radio will not retain memory with a disconnected battery; therefore it has to be reprogrammed, a real pain. The phone mic.is connected with a wire in the back of the radio. I left off since I did not want to tangle the wire in the steering, could interfere with driving, or just the wires looking bad. I expect a remote mic is in the future. There is a free video on the internet which shows easy directions for installing the stereo / cd, which is very worthy for my Corvette. Otherwise the Stereo / cd sounds good, after a few minutes

    Pros:

    Cons: I have a 93 Corvette, my notes maybe applicable to all C4 series Model years. The manual is too hard on old eyes; the fonts are way too small and too lite for easy reading.

    Up To Date with Pioneer

    Tony from Portsmouth, Va on 11/13/2014

    Verified customer (What's this?)
    Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

    I have been a Pioneer fan and advocate since the late 80's. I felt like they always have put out a quality product, and this deck is no exception. It has a great sound and an even better look. When you pick a deck to go into your vehicle you want something that looks like it belongs. This deck looked like it belonged in the dash. A perfect fit, not to mention a perfect sound. Then with the custom multi colored LEDs in this deck I didn't have to worry about it matching the factory light in my 2012 F-150. Maybe I should have taken a pic and sent it in. The look is sleek and sexy. Adjusting the settings took me a few minutes though. Does have your basic bass and treble settings, but has EQ settings which I had to figure out, but now that I have it sounds great.

    Pros: LEDs lets me customize the look, sexy look, a lot of adjustments to get it sounding just like I want

    Cons: going thru the menu to make adjustments, manual is a bit complex

    Unit was similar to a prior purchase from Crutchfield. The wiring up was fine and the fit was spot on. It has all the features I need.

    Pros: Looks great and was able to match display color for my 04 Passat. Bluetooth link works flawlessly. Set up and programming was easy.

    Cons: Mixtrax feature is totally lost on me. It's like having a disco ball in your car. I opted out. I wish they had a weighted control knob that felt like I was turning something.

    Pioneer FH-X700BT replace 2003 Ford Expedition Stock

    Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

    I am the original owner of a 2003 Ford Expedition. The stock radio had no aux port, BT, or way to play mp3s from my iphone. I also wanted a way to talk wireless while driving so I bought the Pioneer FH-X700BT and crutchfield included the wire harness, faceplate and install instructions. I did buy a seperate 12V to 5V amp converter after reading install reviews. The install was super fast and easy. I installed the BT mic on my visor and have used in numerous times. The BT streaming feature is fantastic. I love how I can get in the truck, start it up, and without ever taking my phone out of my pocket it will continue streaming right where it left off - whether it was Pandora, Amazon, iTunes, or the music on my phone.

    Pros: BT phone operations BT streaming Ease of use Sound quality

    Cons: No tie wiring to interface with the car headlight dimming

    Made from cheap material. Within 3 months the plastic chrome finish started coming off. Shows wear quickly. The lights are too bright at night and too dim in the day.

    Pros: A lot of connectivity for price.

    Cons: The setting reset to factory randomly. this is incredibly annoying because I have to reset all my radio channels, the clock, the lighting scheme and the audio settings almost daily. The trim lights are too bright at night, yet the display lights are too dim in the day. The dimmer barely makes any difference. Made from cheap material. Within 3 months the plastic chrome finish started coming off. Shows wear quickly. The lights are too bright at night and too dim in the day.

    Smarter than I am. I actually have had to read the manual to operate this. Well, not the whole manual, anyway. The unit is smarter than I am. Lots of variable settings. Not too hard, just have to get the hang of it and learn the quirky things.

    Pros: Plugged in and working without setting up a thing, and even answered a call for me before setting up the phone.

    Cons: I'll find them in time, I think.

    Cheesy display, good functionality

    Replaced OEM unit because I wanted iPhone control & Bluetooth for calling. Was pleasantly surprised to find that Bluetooth audio works flawlessly and even displays the track name when I'm streaming from Spotify or Pandora. Sounds quality is much better than the stock unit, even without upgrading the speakers. This was my first DIY car stereo installation and it wasn't too difficult - just took patience.

    Pros: Bluetooth audio & phone calling work flawlessly, makes the USB port almost unnecessary Very good sound Lots of features when you figure out the menu navigation - colors, equalizer, etc. Very good value for the money

    Cons: Rotating colors (default functionality, can be changed) is cheesy LCD display feels like a throwback to the 90's, but a more modern screen would probably have driven up the cost Takes some time to figure out how to manipulate all the menus via the single knob

    I really like the system. My only complaint is that I can't get the rear speakers to function. I've made one call and spoke with your tech and still ..... no sound. These are new speakers purchased from you folks that operated before making the switch to Pioneer. The instructions provided were not the best. I'm still looking for answers from Crutchfield as to why I cannot get the rear speakers to work on my 2006 Ford Explorer.

    Pros: Very much like the 700BT

    Cons: Poor instructions to replace old system.

    This was not the HU I initially wanted. At a minimum for replacing the factory unit I was looking for iPod interface, keeping my steering wheel controls (SWC), and BlueTooth phone and audio. The "nice to haves" were touch screen and full Android integration. This unit had my minimums and when I saw it on-sale and how desperate I was to replace my current factory unit I jumped at it. I have NOT been disappointed. Installation was easy in my Ford Expedition. Units have changed a LOT since my last installs for friends in High School and College - but the tech team at was very knowledgeable and patient and helped me in my ordering of the Steering Wheel control and ensuring and double checking I had the right equipment and parts for my car. I made two calls during installation to ensure my wiring before soldering up my harnesses and connecting the SWC. Both calls were answered promptly and professionally. Great overall experience and very happy with my purchase.

    Pros: Looks good, customizable, BlueTooth Audio and Phone is fantastic

    Cons: Illumination/dimming for night driving is needed.

    Very good "radio" for the price, but does so much more. BT is nice, USB port on front is a plus. Looks great! I had to set to dark red in color, and dimmed as it's pretty bright at night. Controls have good feel, and I see why I've always been a Pioneer fan.

    Pros: Easy to install, good controls, works well.

    Cons: Settings/menu system a little strange at first, but actually makes sense after you use if for a bit. No worries.

    Verified customer (What's this?)
    Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

    Replaced factory Bose HU in my Maxima with this unit. Installation was simple and straightforward. Everything works great on it. Build quality seems good so far (only installed a week), despite being considerably lighter than the factory HU which could be the lack of the 6cd changer. Sounds a lot better through the factory amp and speakers once I got everything tweaked with the EQ and input gains. Radio reception is awful, but I think that is due to the factory "diversity antenna" of the Bose system not being fully compatible with a standard single antenna system. I rarely listen to the radio, so that's not an issue for me. The customizable display colors were able to blend with dash lighting and LED displays very nicely.

    Pros: -Sound quality, appearance, build quality, functionality

    Cons: The very shiny & modern appearance may look out of place in older or more basic interiors.

    1999 Toyota Tacoma

    Verified customer (What's this?)
    Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

    Bought this receiver to replace a faulty aftermarket in my 1999 Toyota Tacoma. Installation went well and fit perfectly into the factory opening. Normally wiring harnesses from Crutchfield work well but because of the previous aftermarket installation - I was not able to use the one provided [not Crutchfield's fault]. The Pioneer unit sounds decent but there are factory preset equalizations that do an OK job; but I prefer to tweek some of the audio bands myself rather than relying on presets. Also couldn't hear much difference between three loudness settings. The mixtrack lighting feature is annoying - maybe I just have to experiment more to figure out how to shut it off. Also, if there's an On/Off feature [besides turning the vehicle off] ... it's a mystery to me. Overall I like the sound and ease of installation. At The pricepoint for this unit, it's a good buy. I'm sure I'll enjoy it. Having a USB and stereo mini plug input on the face of the Pioneer is excellent - love it ! Haven't paired up my cell phone yet .... but it's another feature that influenced my decision to buy this unit in the first place. The coolness factor only applies if you like annoying, flashing lights - yuk. Toyota factory speakers were already upgraded to 4 Infinity speakers which adds to the sound quality. You really have to work with this receiver to figure out many of the settings that are not covered well in the manual.

    Pros: Good sound, easy to install. USB and stereo mini plug input a real plus. Easy to read displays. Radio sensitivity is very good.

    Cons: Can't find an On/Off button. Preset equalization not as flexible as I'd like. Flashing mixtrack lights that constantly change colors is distracting.

    Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

    First off, this is a great radio, it really added quite a dynamic sound compared to my stock receiver and the EQ options are great. The color changing options are fantastic as well, however this receiver is bright. I had to choose a darker color just so I wasn't distracting myself at night. The receiver also doesn't have a wire for illumination, it has to be switched on and off manually which is a pain. The display is adequate, but it would be nice to be able to see track info and time. The bluetooth music streaming is the reason I bought this receiver and I must say I'm very happy with it, flawless bluetooth control. All in all I am very happy with my receiver and I would definitely recommend it to friends.

    Pros: Great sound Great "styling" Great build quality Nice EQ Great bluetooth connectivity Nice color options

    Cons: Bright. No dimmer/illumination wires for auto dimming Interface can be a little confusing

It just quit again, (had almost a year now) but hopefully it will come back, luckily Im still under warranty though... I think.. Will not buy from pioneer ever again..

    Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

    Had this installed in my 2010 Dodge Grand Caravan. I did not install it myself. I'm used to the older style decks where you can control bass, mid, and treble. Everything this deck does is based on hZ. I don't know enough about audio to know which hertz are the right hertz to adjust so it was very very confusing after it was installed. Once I had my car audio guy explain everything to me it made a lot more sense though. The deck came with built in bluetooth which I knew before I bought it but I had no idea what it meant exactly. It came with a microphone that the installer attached above my rear-view mirror and now I have hands-free phone calls in my car and hear the other party through my speakers. Awesome! There's a USB port on the front of the deck so you can plug a flash drive in and it will play any music you have on the flash drive. I don't know if there are file types it won't play. That's a cool feature but I still prefer to plug my 160gb ipod in and set it to shuffle. The deck has cool colors to choose from and it's pretty easy to use. There's one main button to get to the menu which is nice. Other decks I've had had multiple menu options and different buttons to use to get to them. Overall I like this deck and it seems like it was a good value. My installer told me "it only has two pre-outs". I have no idea what that means but maybe somebody that's looking at this deck will read this and it will help them make a decision lol

    Pros: Cool colors Ease of use Good sound

    Cons: A little confusing if you don't understand the hertz that different sounds are measured in

    This radio is awesome! I initially installed this in my 2003 Trailblazer and it worked flawlessly. The car recently got totaled and one of my only stipulations for a new car was that this radio had to fit in it. The bluetooth is amazing, it connects fast to my Iphone, and charges it pretty well with the USB port! The lights are awesome too. Some may worry that they are too distracting, but you honestly get used to them and just realize how cool they actually look. Its a great buy!

    This is an awesome stereo for the money. Ordering thru Crutchfield was an even better idea than I imagined. They suggested parts I didn't realize I would have needed and some were even free with the order. I was impressed at the ease of the installation. I am an electrician but I think any one with basic mechanic skills would have had no problem with this installation.

    Pros: the features, the colors, the Bluetooth, the ease of use of the receiver, the remote.

    Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

    I have had this unit for about 3 months now. Great stereo for the money, easy assembly and installation. I installed the unit in my 2004 F-250. It was a tight fit even with modifying the dash. You have to file/remove quite a bit of the surrounding dash material to get the stereo to fit. Once it is in there is no removing it. The fit is good and looks good. Waiting to see how it performs in the sub-arctic conditions this coming winter in WI.

    Pros: Easy assembly and connections. Easy directions. Very nice fit once you get the material removed. The microphone for the phone works very good. Other bluetooth devices haven't worked this well. Very easy connections with phone to use iphone/itunes music. Great sound, I will purchasing new speakers in the future to improve the sound quality from the stock ones.

    Cons: The programing options are intense, learning the sequence of operations to get to each option to make adjustments gets confusing at times. This could be simpler. Not being able to pull unit out once its installed unless you pull apart the whole dash.

    I bought the same radio for my wife's 05 Tahoe in December (gift from Santa) and at first did not like it seemed to busy. I quickly became jealous with the functionality of the CD Player. The ease in which she could navigate the attached flash drive for music, to changing the colors of the display/buttons (only downside is dim is still bright at night). I have always been a fan of Pioneer since the High School days and nothing has changed. I was worried about hooking up the wiring harness and external microphone for the handsfree phone function (a recent self professed DIYer), however the task was not too much and the CD Player is working fine. It has made my stock speakers sound like they have life in them (I may have to update that at a later date). The longest task of the entire install was mounting the microphone and hiding the wire under the headliner and under all the trim/dash (time consuming but worth the $75.00 I saved doing the install myself). FYI- Red to me is the dimmest of the lights which works out great for me. Thanks Crutchfield Team

    Pros: Too many features, handsfree blue tooth, USB port for flash drive or charging phone, Aux input, .....

    Cons: The only con would be I added to my cart and then when went to complete the purchase the price had increased back to the old (higher) price, same price paid for wife's unit in December. The con was still not enough to keep me away or change my mind. Just on the next go will make sure wallet is handy to pay right then. Live and learn.

    Was looking for a low cost upgrade to add hands free phone use. Am 100% satisfied I made the right choice. This head unit is easy to setup and use is intuitive. I hardly needed to refer to the manual. Ease of installation depends on your application (car) but in my case it took just 10 minutes AFTER creating the interface cable, which took 20 minutes - cause I always solder my connections. Regardless making the cable is easy because all of the wires are color coded and matched up perfectly

    Pros: Great price. All the features needed for great sound quality, especially the base boost. Has improved the safety of my driving experience with hand free cell phone feature. Interface with the cell phone is automated, no codes to enter.

    Cons: The quality was so good it made me want even more. So I ordered speaker upgrades too.

    I was afraid I would have to replace the speakers in my old factory system. I replaced the head end first so I can stream bluetooth from my devices and found the sound qualify from this stereo is excellent, and I no longer need to replace any of my factory speakers.

    Pros: Great sound, love the features, USB & Aux port in front. Bluetooth automatically connects and continues playing where it left off, even when moving from a bluetooth headset to the stereo. Installation was easy and the display looks good in my car.

    Cons: The interface is a little tough to figure out and learn. The display is a little too busy and bright, and the volume knob takes too many turns to adjust the sound. I wish it had an off button instead of having to hold the source button. None of the above issues are enough to have kept me from purchasing the stereo.

    I love this stereo. Sounds amazing. Super easy to install. I've never installed a car stereo before, and I got it done in about 45 minutes (this includes the time I spent looking for my crimping tool). Very easy to set up. You can pick from a bunch of choices for the lighting. Bluetooth was okay to set up. I had to pair it from my phone.... couldn't figure out how to pair it from the receiver's end. Call quality is very good. Two small, but minor downsides. The wiring from the stereo is a pretty light guage. Haven't noticed any sound quality issued, but it wasn't as thick a gauge as what my oem stereo had. Second, very minor downside, the illumination doesn't really dim that much at night. These things are so minor though. I love the unit and it sounds wonderful.

    Pros: Great sound, easy install even for a newbie, looks great

    Cons: Dims poorly, thin gauge wiring.

    I bought this unit as an upgrade to my 2006 Toyota Tacoma stereo. Installation was simple and you can count on good support from Crutchfield. The unit is not so simple to use, specially when driving; on sunny days you won't be able to read the dial, not even when the dimmer is on high, which by the way only has two settings. When night driving, I found the illumination is too bright even on the lowest setting of the dimmer. The ability to set the illumination color according to the instruments panel's color is a nice feature. The sound has improved compared with the factory unit. The fit with the included bezel and brackets is good. Overall a good unit.

    This is a great head unit for the money. The bluetooth quality is fantastic compared to older decks with this feature that I have used. It did improve the factory sound quality in my Lincoln Continental. The ipod control is great. Streaming music is fantastic. I have not tested a CD yet, but I am sure it is fine. I bought this for my wife, and she likes how easy it is to use. This is not the head unit for an audiophile, for for $140 installed it really is unbeatable!

    Pros: Features, sound quality, ease of use.

    Cons: Display is VERY bright even on the dimmest setting. Only 2 sets of pre outs.

    VERY EASY INSTALL

    Verified customer (What's this?)
    Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

    Purchased this product for my daughters 05 Vibe. Was a bit worried about being able to do the install myself, but with the adapters sent in the box from Crutchfield it was truly an easy job. I've never done anything like this before, but it seriously took me only an 2 hours to remove the factory unit and install this unit. With the adapters sent in the box it is just plug and play. This new head unit is strong and clear. I'm very pleased with the end result.

    Pros: Crisp clear sound. Better than factory unit. Installation looks like factory.

    Cons: Not being able to dim the display with the dash instrument dimmer dial. Programming the function settings for even basis operation is a bit overwhelming for someone used to having seperate dials on the unit for adjustments.

    This was my first purchase of a aftermarket car radio. I did plenty of research on multiple radios, and finally decided on this one. And after three months, i am very well pleased with this purchase, and would recommend it to anybody looking for a new radio.

    Pros: It is very well designed, and has countless features.

    Cons: It can be a little confusing to operate when you first start using it.

    Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

    This may have been straight 5's until I noticed that it is now $10 LESS than what I paid for it earlier this month. This little unit does exactly what I wanted it to do, and vastly improves the safety (hands free) of my 2006 Toyota Highlander. Mostly great install directions (see below)

    Pros: Great features, Better Bluetooth connectivity/performance than my Acura Easy install

    Cons: As detailed as the instructions were for the radio, wiring harness, etc., there was NO mention of the microphone required for the handsfree phone. I had to improvise, there was no way I was going to have the wire draped across the dash, or clipped on the steering column. I was able to snake it through one of the heater/ac vents (so I can't use the hands free and the fan at the same time if I want to be heard). With such a great instruction set, how could Crutchfield has missed this?

    Crutchfield response on 9/8/2014
    When we saw Mr. Franzosa's review, we alerted our Tech Support team so they can help the customer find a better way to route that microphone wire. An external microphone is a key component to a good hands-free calling experience. Stereos with microphones built into the faceplate just can't pick up your voice as well. And we know how it feels to buy something and then have it the price drop the next day. The extra $10 in the price has been refunded to you!

    2004 Toyota Sequoia

    Verified customer (What's this?)
    Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

    The Pioneer FH-X700BT was surprisingly very easy to install. I purchased it for my daughter's hand-me-down 2004 Toyota Sequoia, when the OEM started acting up. I wanted to have a project I could work on with her that would be fun before she went off to college. My first problem was I ordered the wrong wiring harness. When I called Crutchfield I was immediately speaking (on a Saturday afternoon) with a tech who knew what stereo I had purchased without my even giving him my name or invoice number -amazing. Must be tied to the phone number. He explained that I ordered the wrong wiring housing, but that they would immediately ship the correct housing at no-charge. I declined and purchased it locally so I could finish the project that day. The directions were great and it was very easy to complete the project in about 2.5 hours. Not bad for someone who has never done this before. I would definitely use Crutchfield again due to their excellent customer service!

    Pros: Easy to connect to iphone via Bluetooth. Easy install. Great customer service from Crutchfield. Perfect fit.

    Cons: The changing colors would drive me up a wall. Luckily my daughter was able to lock it onto one color and then lower the brightness level on her own.

    Only One flaw

    2004 Chevrolet Silverado 2500/3500

    Verified customer (What's this?)
    Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

    I like everything about this radio except one thing --- it does not dim with the factory dimmer switch, which the original radio to the vehicle did. I do understand it is a variable voltage issue within the radio but did not realize it when I purchased it. The colors are too bright when traveling in darkened conditions. Yes, there are multiple colors to choose from & some are more subdued. It does have a dimming feature, but the impact is negligible. Consequently, it is adequate & I will keep the product. Just would have liked the dimmer to work. All other aspects of the radio are great ... great sound, very nice to have all my CD's on a thumb drive & able to play through the USB port, very easy to navigate from one source to another. Nice installation kit so it does look like a factory install. Additionally, the Bluetooth is very clear for the users on the other end. Was very easy to install in a 2004 Chevy Silverado 2500HD.

    Pros: Great sound, ease of use, nice to have multiple sources of input (USB, Aux, etc).

    Cons: Lack of significant dimming ability for low light conditions.

    2006 Honda CRV EX

    Verified customer (What's this?)
    Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

    Tools : plastic ply, screw driver, plastic cutter Installation accessories : wire nuts (x10), wire harness(Metra 70-1721), In-dash kit(Mentra 95-7801) Installation process was not very easy for me, the 1st time car audio installer. It took me 4 hours including several calls to Crutchfield technical support. Initially I bought a portable bluetooth speaker hooked to my iphone to listen to music. But it was not the same experience as car speakers. I decided to buy this product based on reviews from on line. I hesitated between a different on line retailer and Crutchfield where to buy from. I am a big fan of the other on line retailer for most products. But I was worried with any technical issue during installation. Many years ago I had a very good customer experience with Crutchfield. So I decided to go with Crutchfield for just a little extra $. My decision turned out to be not wrong. I had a couple of technical issues and Crutchfield technicians were very patient and very professional even at 11pm! Overall I am very satisfied with this production and customer support.

    Pros: Good value, nice features, great technical customer support from Crutchfield - this is main reason I decided to write review.

    Cons: Installation instruction was not super clear - wiring and side bracket. Incomplete installation part and tool - plying tool and wire nuts.

    I upgraded to this receiver because the factory receiver in my 2009 Cube wouldn't charge my iPod. I've purchased Pioneer receivers in the past and never had a complaint about them, the FH-X700BT is no exception. The unit itself is very solid and well built. Amazing sound for the price, can't think of anything negative about the unit. Grounding it to the chassis was easy enough as well. Although I had no need for the Metra mounting hardware that was sent with it, I used the factory brackets from the original receiver and it mounted right up with no problems.

    Pros: Ease of use, Amazing sound for the price

    Cons: Haven't run into any yet.

    Verified customer (What's this?)
    Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

    Easy install on a 2006 Toyota Camry. Make sure you get the ASWC-1 (option) to keep your steering wheel controls for the radio. Use the Metra 70-8114 harness (originally not supplied in kit or shown on Crutchfield website for this item; Crutchfield hooked me up after the sale on this item) to avoid cutting/ splicing into factory connection for steering wheel controls on many Toyota and Lexus models. Radio was truly plug and play thanks to Crutchfield kits and harnesses. You can tone down the light show on the radio dial/ face pretty easily, so don't pay attention to some of the negative comments on that.

    Pros: Great Crutchfield customer service and shipping. Thanks very much.

    Cons: Nothing so far.

Bluetooth works great, lighting is ridiculously overdone, fit is ok, far from stock looking. Value rating is offset by by the negatives. Could be a great inexpensive system with better design.

    Pros: - Price - Features

    Cons: - Lighting design is ridiculously overdone. Too bright for car at night, looks like something out of a Transformers movie. - Dimmable feature doesn't really dim, only make slightly less ridiculously bright - No way to actually power radio off when car is running

I'm not so thrilled at the I this and I that in most descriptions, because I don't care about i or use i products, and I do wish things were a bit more catered to my android world. In general terms I like this head unit.

    Pros: Fits well, and functions as it should and sounds good.

    Cons: My main complaint is, as I have seen others complain, and that the color control, not easy to do, had to call to get help! I think you have to be under 30 to appreciate the light show and I'm 70, so it's not cool here.

    Cool update for my Scion XA

    Chris from Chicago, IL on 8/4/2014

    2006 Scion xA

    Verified customer (What's this?)
    Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

    I'm happy with the radio. Not so much with difficult install. I have a 2006 Scion XA with a basic radio not equipped for iPod Touch. This radio was reasonably priced and had all the features I was looking for (except complete Bluetooth control which I was told was too advanced for my model). The reviews made it seem easy to install so it they gave me confidence to do it myself though I'd never done an install in my life. I was under the impression that Crutchfield would send all that I needed so started the job on a Saturday morning. Pulled out the old radio fairly easily after watching an online video. Next tried to fit the old harness onto the new radio using the adapters but found out the plastic needed to be sawed off in places. Since I wasn't aware the parts were not customized for my car, I improvised using a serrated knife (didn't own a saw). I injured my finger! I then noticed I lacked crimp caps and a wire stripper! That meant a trip to the hardware store. I tried to fit the dash back but found out an hour later that something inside had shifted out of position. Next day I did all the wire stripping and crimping and put the new radio in. It worked great. Later I saw that several outside lights weren't working. After a trip to the dealer (for which I had to pay) they fixed it. One of the wires was shorting out in the back. Not my fault but it was a tight fit. Moral of the story is sometimes it's better to pay for installation!

    Pros: Nice looks Great sound Excellent features for iPod

    Cons: Difficult to install for a novice Had electrical problems that dealer had to repair Didn't know in advance all parts/tools I would need

    The unit performs so many functions and with quality for the price. But it is geeky in that the user interface is so layered and technical to use. The interface requires clicking, scrolling and selecting, in order to get to a basic adjustment. Can be overwhelming especially when driving. This is certainly geared toward the younger crowd. I suggest more dedicated buttons and rely less on the "universal" controls.

    Pros: Price, sound quality, construction

    Cons: User interface

    After installing the HU, I asked myself, "What was I waiting for?". My DD is the first car I ever purchased, back in 2000. The car was still running on a stock HU. No BT, does not read MP3, only radio. It comes to a point where I turn the stock HU off and just play music through my iPhone's speakers, yeah... One day I decided to browse Crutchfield and decided to go with a double DIN to make it look seamless. Stumbled upon this model after narrowing down my need/want and filtered by price point. Needless to say, I can't believe the great price I paid for this HU. Installation was a breeze especially with Crutchfield's tech support. I spoke to them once to clarify a few things such as my car's stock amp and how to tap into said amp with the wiring harness that I have. After that, it was all plug and play. Powered it on and connected my iPhone for testing purposes. It works flawlessly. Sound was amazing even with stock 14 year old speakers, I can't believe it. Best of all, this HU looks like it's part of the car, nothing too "space ship" looking. Overall, very impressed!

    Pros: Build quality Price Sound quality Ease of installation Crutchfield Tech Support

    Cons: Nothing

    Works like a champ in my 2001 Tacoma

    For around 150 bucks I get bluetooth audio and phone connectivity, and iPod and USB connectivity all in a package that dropped right into my existing factory spot in my 2001 Toyota Tacoma, what's not to love? Used the Metra factory adapter harness and everything fired up perfectly using my existing factory speakers. I was never able to find a spec for the power ratings on the factory Tacoma speakers so I was a little worried I might cook them right off the bat, but so far so good with moderate listening volume. The hardest part of the install was routing the microphone cable through my dash to the steering column, but well worth the effort. People on the other end of calls can actually hear me now! The only downsides to this deck are that it is a bit overwhelming to have to use all the menus (to the point that doing so while driving is impossible), and that it would be nice to have a backside USB port for routing an iPod cable into the glovebox.

    Pros:

    Cons:

    Great Value for the Price

    Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

    Great radio for the price. I installed it in a 2003 4 Runner. The truck has high miles and I didn't want to spend a fortune updating the radio. This fit the bill. I also installed the Axxess steering wheel control and the Tato amp controller. The whole system works great. Pandora links with my 5s and can be controlled by the head unit. Bluetooth connects pretty easy and works great for calls and music. iPod integration works great on the 5s as well. The color controller is a cool feature if you like your dash to be consistent. Only complaint would be it's not as deafeningly loud on the highway with the windows down. This is a minor issue. Overall it's a great value for the price point. Also a big thumbs up to the Crutchfield crew in general. Great customer service. Lefty helped me take the huge cluster of wires and hook it up flawlessly, which was no small achievement considering my lack of experience.

    Pros: Price Functions Color options

    Cons: Sound could be louder

    This head unit does everything it says it will do flawlessly. Easy to install, bluetooth streaming works perfect, and looks good. You get what you pay for. At $150 you cant beat it. Does lack a little on the sound but it is a cheaper unit. I've had it about 1 year and have'nt had any problems. Routing the mic was easy and installing the chime adapter was easy. Phone calls sound clear on both ends. If your looking for a better than factory head unit for a cheaper price, this is it.

    Pros: Bluetooth works great and the unit looks cool

    Cons: For $150 I dont have any cons...

    Verified customer (What's this?)
    Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

    I selected this system because it fits perfectly with my 2003 Ford Expedition and it looked really cool, I like the features, and I really liked that the colors were customizable. When I first received it I was a little overwhelmed because I had taken the panel off my expedition, had everything out, wires were everywhere and to be honest I was near tears. I suppose the instructions were fine for someone who's done this before but I had never done it before I was trying to do it myself without anyone's help. So I called the number that Crutchfield listed and I spoke to Matt. He very calmly asked what was in front of me and I told him "wires are everywhere and I don't know what to do" He proceeded to tell me which wires to put where, he explained it to me clearly and I understood it perfectly. After I hung up with Matt I finished the job put everything back, took a deep breath and push the on button---honestly I thought that it wouldn't work but it worked perfectly! I was amazed and so proud that I had done it myself (with Matts help : ) it is awesome and I am getting lots of compliments on how great it sounds. I am very happy that I ordered it from Crutchfield!

    Pros: Great sound, great looks, perfectly fits in my 2003 Expedition.

    Cons: None

    I've installed many car stereos and this one was by far the easiest. It used the factory mounts and fit into the opening perfectly. I have been buying all my car audio from Crutchfield for several years now because of price and service. I had a wiring question and the tech was able to anticipate what I was asking which showed his experience. I will continue to purchase all my car audio from them and will even start looking to them for more electronic needs.

    Pros: Easy installation Good sound Great functionality Clean interface Good price Great fit

    Cons: As with most new products it seemed a bit flimsy but once installed it really doesn't matter.

    Verified customer (What's this?)
    Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

    I bought this receiver specifically to add Bluetooth connectivity for my iPhone for both sound and hands free phone operation. Installed in a 2004 Ford Explorer with minimal effort due primarily to the excellent wiring and installation instructions provided by the master sheets. Most of the time to install was hooking up the wiring harness - not tough just lots of wires. Got great advice on the panel tools from my product advisor and the installation kit parts all fit like glove. Connected easily with my iPhone via Bluetooth. Sound is better than the stock CD changer and radio I replaced even with the stock speakers. Operation of all the various modes was a little bit of a learning curve but if you read the first part of the operating instructions the rest is pretty explanatory. I missed a couple of common functions because I jumped to the specific instructions. All and all very pleased with unit and exceptionally pleased with the "legendary" Crutchfield customer service.

    Pros: Great value and works as described - what else do you want?

    Cons: Only con is for those of us who have a tendency to skip the introductory operating instructions. Might miss a few critical functions and have to go back and "READ THE @&$!-ing MANUAL" like we should have to being with.

    Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

    I like Pioneer products so brand loyalty was what first draw me to this unit. It offers quality and amazing value for the price. It fits perfectly in my '11Chevrolet Aveo5 LT. The stock GM radio sucked big time so this Pioneer is a great upgrade. Sounds great and powerful even with stock speakers. The Bluetooth pairs instantly with my LG F6. Calls are clear and loud. The downside, in my opinion, is the intense non stop light show and cumbersome menus. The lightning way to bright even with the dimmer on. Anything is burried in sub menus into more sub menues. Maybe im old but i can do without the intense light show. On the other hand, the unit itself if solid, glossy faceplate, nice sturdy buttons, handy remote, awesome Bluetooth, clear calls through microphone and speakers. And the price can't be beaten! I do recommend this Pioneer. It simply offers more for your buck. But if you get discomforted by bright lights at night them think twice about this unit!

    Pros: Value for the money. Pioneer quality. Loaded with features. Bluetooth. Remote. Looks pretty!

    Cons: Lights are too intense and juvenile. Even dim down they are BRIGHT!

    Sounds great easy to use . put it in a 2004 GMC Yukon with the Bose system , wiring harnesses for steering control and on star is just a little intimating but worked through it. Had to do a little modifing for mounting , but not bad I would buy this product again . owners manual could be more clear.

    The stereo itself looks and sounds great. My reason for writing this review is more about Crutchfield than the stereo. Their customer service/ tech support is the best of the best. My first unit was blowing fuses so I called the tech support. Right away they helped diagnose the problem. They sent out a brand new unit right away. This one worked perfect! Crutchfield tech support made this big head ache disappear in the ease of doing business and top quality product/ installation knowledge. As mentioned before, the head unit itself preforms exactly as described, I couldn't be happier. Thank you Crutchfield!

    Pros: Sounds great, Looks great!

    Cons: a little slow when switching songs or radio stations.

    Great head unit with any feature you would need. I love using the bluetooth because it connects to my phone automatically when the car turns on and even starts playing the last song played on my phone. The hands free calling and Siri compatibility is nice also. The built in amp has almost no power so you will need an amp if using high powered speakers. Definitely recommend this head unit as I have had no problems.

    Pros: bluetooth is great, hands free calling

    Cons: Mixttrax is useless, need an amp

    It is a great radio I had to play with it for a bit because it was way different from my old CD player but this thing is awesome especially the display its bright and there is no missing it the sound quality is great I was worried the most about that because before I purchased this radio there wasn't any reviews that had anything to do with the sound quality which should be the main focus of any CD player but all in all it looks great, fit great and above all sounds great and you can't beat the price oh and Bluetooth works pretty good also the mic that comes with is pretty clear

    Pros: It's all around awesome too many pros

    Cons: The brightness can be a lil much there should be a display light off button or option

    This is just what I was looking for in a car stereo. I needed the new features like mp3 and bluetooth capabilities that my old stereo didn't have. I had no problem connecting to my iphone via bluetooth. I like the way it displays the song name and artist of the music playing. Very happy with this purchase.

    Pros: you can play just about any format of music. You can set color of stereo head background to match your cars instrument panel, or let it scroll through all the colors. Easy install.

    Cons: Takes a while to learn all the functions and how to implement them.

    Bought this to replace a stock cd player in my Nissan Versa. Install was a breeze, and the bluetooth connection with included microphone had me up and making handsfree calls from my iphone (still in my pocket!) in no time. The included wire harness and antenna extension (both free!) made the install go so smooth. I'm very satisfied!

    Pros: Ease of install, bluetooth connection for music and phone calls, choice of display and sidelighting colors (I'm talking a LOT of choices...)

    Cons: The microphone can make handsfree calls sound tinny and hard to understand for the other party (the person calling from a phone).

    Verified customer (What's this?)
    Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

    I bought this unit to replace the stock in my CR-V back in December 2013. I installed the installed this in January 2014. It's been this best buy I've made on a stereo in a long time. The installation went seamless and was done in less than a day. I left the unit to change colors on its own instead of my programming the colors. Using the Bluetooth it was I really love about this unit. When I receive calls or make calls, no one knows that I am driving. They assume I'm at home. I like the options that I have in using an iPod (which I own), playing music through the Bluetooth or using the aux input. I rarely listen to the radio because of too many commercials and the repetition.

    Pros: -clear Bluetooth calls, I can be heard as long as my sunroof and windows are closed. -many choices of colors. -different ways of listening to music which can last for hours. -ease of installation.

    Cons: -when receiving calls, the numbers can be seen by passengers. -some colors are too bright at night. -so many menu options, the manual is very explanatory.

    Verified customer (What's this?)
    Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

    I bought this because I wanted a wireless connection to my phone and I had a double-DIN sized hole to fill. The unit works just fine, looks pretty good, but the instruction manual is not as helpful as it could be. I have a few minor complaints about the visual design, but overall I'd say I got what I payed for. I would prefer to have a unit with a more refined, mature, appearance that matches my car interior, but such a thing does not exist for a reasonable price.

    Pros: Unit works exactly like it was supposed to. It has good sound and all the features work. My phone connects automatically and all the Bluetooth features work. The default color-changing mode is entertaining without being distracting.

    Cons: The "dimmer" is not a variable adjustment, but has only two settings: "Bright" and "Not So Bright". Unique design looks like a non-square shape stuck in a square hole in the dash. It should have come with a custom faceplate to make it blend in better. The power-on switch for the automatic antenna raises the antenna even when it's not needed.

    Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

    This car stereo is a great bang for the buck and Crutchfield has it priced $20 cheaper than another retailer (yeah, I was surprised that they carried it)! Very easy install and although a basic stereo, has all the features to keep my daughter happy. She says it makes her '99 Altima a whole new car. The bluetooth synced easily and flawlessly with her iPhone and the sound quality with attached microphone mounted to the steering column gives her great sound quality for calls over BT.

    Pros: Easy install, great value, great features.

    Cons: Seems like they took a single DIN radio and put it in a double DIN chassis. The 'look' is a bit clunky until you throw in the Mitrax features - jazzes it up a bit.

    Pretty awesome radio. The radio in my 2005 Honda Accord finally gave out and I wanted to put in something nice that wouldn't hurt the bank too much. This receiver is perfect. Bluetooth works and sounds clearly, beautifully intergrated with my iPhone 5S the music sounds so much better now!

    Pros: Bluetooth-awesome Sound quality Color options Looks fantastic

    Cons: ONLY THING: It is pretty bright at night, even with the dimmer on, kind of annoying but I just chose a darker color and it really makes a difference.

    Verified customer (What's this?)
    Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

    I recently installed this deck in my wife's '07 Mustang (Shaker 500 stereo). Installation was a breeze - thanks to Crutchfield for help (2 times). I soldered the wiring and shrink-tubed the connections. I had a small issue with the deck alignment with the supplied mounting hardware. Not a big issue... Value: I gave it 5/5 stars. Even in CDN dollars, this unit is still a good deal. Sound quality: I give it 4/5 stars. It's hard to judge the sound since I am still using factory speakers. Ease Of Use: I gave 3/5 stars. This deck isn't the most simplistic to use. Lots of features bundled into the unit! Not hard to figure out, just not the most user-friendly. Coolness Factor: Well.. I'm 48 years old so the "Coolness Factor" is lost on me. The back-light combinations are nice, they can be set to match the lights of the car. Build Quality: I gave 3/5 stars. The quality seems too cheap for me. I wish I had gone with the double-din Alpine deck (probably the same build quality). The plastic front is easily scratched.

    Pros: Affordable; easy to install (no need to hire a professional!); good sound quality; bluetooth works great.

    Cons: Build quality; Too many menus to go through to set/adjust items.

    This unit replaces the factory 6 CD changer in my 2005 Explorer. At first I was a little intimidated about doing the install myself but after spending a few moments looking at the wireing, I decided that I could handle it. It worked first time and I LOVE the Bluetooth feature. The sould quality is great and once I got used to how the big dial worked and a few other buttons I was off to the races. This is a great unit to upgrade your old original equipment unit.

    Pros: Great Bluetooth conectivity. Very easy to use once you set it up and play with it a little. Remote is an added bonus that I find I use often. The handsfree phone feature works well as long as you place the mic correctly.

    Cons: A little hard to figure out how to set up and operate functions but that's part of the fun too. Once you get the hang of it, no problem.

    It is a good unit except it is too bright at night even with the dimmer on. I disassembled the unit and painted some of the plastic inside to block the lights and reduce the brightness.

    While we're glad the customer found a solution that works for him, we do need to point out for other customers that disassembling the stereo in such a way will void the manufacturer's warranty.

    This head unit is nice for $149. Put it in my wife's 2004 Envoy. Simple install, tons of colors and conbanations to choose from. At first it was hard for me to work ALL the controls from the 1 knob but after playing with it for a few days I caught on. Wife loves the Bluetoooth. She has an android type phone, it linked right to it. Even though she can't speak the name to call, her phone book is stored inside the stereo and she can leave the phone in her purse on the floor and still make calls or stream music from bluetooth audio like pandora. Sound quality is decent, just like any other Pioneer i've had, haven't tryed the mixtrax yet. I thought it would be more complicated but it's really a pretty simple stereo with some cool features.

    Pros: Good sound, plenty of color choices, bt audio
