Looks nice......but that's it.
2005 Honda CRV LX
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
As others have mentioned the bluetooth is kind of glitchy. It disconnects intermittently. Very frustrating. I've put Kenwood units in our other cars and their bluetooth works great. There are no install instructions with the radio. The manual has an install section but there is nothing in it. Be aware of 2 shipping screws in the top of the unit that have to removed. The only mention of these screws is a small note in the operation instructions. It should be in red letters stuck on the front of the unit. I had to uninstall mine to remove the screws. If you don't remove them the CD player won't work. Another thing I don't like is that you can power up the unit with the ignition off so there is a chance of forgetting and running the car battery down. The programming menus are not the easiest to navigate. This is my initial impression. I'm sure I'll find more things not to like over time. It does look more like factory and that's what prompted me to purchase this item over others, bad call. Thank goodness I rarely drive this vehicle. I should have bought another Kenwood.
Pros: Looks nice, more factory appearance.
Cons: read review
