    Nice Unit, but Killed my Battery

    I bought the unit and had it installed by Geek Squad techs at one Best Buy location, and within 2-3 days my battery was absolutely drained such that neither jumping the car with cables or putting it on a charger for 30 minutes helped. I finally had to get AAA to come jump it. I then drove it for about an hour and the battery seemed okay. But 2-3 days later it was completely dead again. But I had noticed that the unit did not turn off when the ignition was turned off, not even with the door open. So I was finally able to take my car to another Best Buy location where the tech confirmed that there was a problem with the unit not turning off which caused excessive battery drain. A subsequent vist by a AAA tech verified that my battery was damaged such that it needed to be replaced. However, the Geek Squad managers took care of it, and I'm awaiting reimbursement for the cost of the battery. The tech at the second Best Buy location had found that a firmware update to the navigation module corrected the same issue on another unit, so he updated my unit and the issue was corrected. Nice unit, just make sure the firmware is updated when it's installed.

    I got this for my 2001 Z28 Camaro. I had to get a custom bezel so it could fit the double din in my dash but it was worth it. Has a ton of great features and now my car feels like it has the technology of all the new cars. Only thing I don't like about it is the tuning system, I prefer the previous pioneer tuning system because it was much easier to get right. I'm going to have to have someone professionally tune it to my system. Other than that, it's a must have if you're in the market for a new system!

    Great Stereo for our RV

    We bought this head unit to replace the stock cd/am/fm that came with the 9 year old camper. We're very pleased so far. Added Sirius, and with the navigation, it's a must! Very pleased. Only draw back is that the screen is a little "busy" for me. I also replaced the rear view monitor and had to make a few modifications (i.e. covered the faux wood with a black vinyl wrap). The stereo is the bottom unit in the picture.

    This is the best one of the line that Best Buy offered off the shelf but there are several in the line available from Pioneer. 4 of which would be upgrades from this model. I like everything about this unit as far as features go. The one thing I don't like is that this unit will on occasion, reboot while going down the road which is really annoying while using the GPS. there my be a software update but I have not received any word from Pioneer as of yet. I did add the Sirrus but since I am a pandora user I haven't felt the need to activate the Sirrus.

    I found the screen useless when the sunlight fluds the front seat. I can't see the screen as it turns into a mirror and reflexed light. The brightness is up as high as it will go. The Bluetooth works well and the Sat Radio is always on. I don't even listen to my old radio stations. I haven't tried the DVD Player and I did put in a CD and the sound is exceptional. I have used the NAV option a couple of times and it took me right to the address.

    Complex high tech unit

    Unit in general is very nice but the GPS is an absolute joke as compared to Garmin. Things like "turn off highway in one mile" when its a merging situation with another highway. I expect more for the one thousand dollars I paid for this unit. Get Garmin software in the thing and you will have something. Sirius radio good, sound quality good. Phone hands free is very good.

    I originally purchased the 7.1" unit and found out in install that it wouldn't fit my vehicle. This unit was a secondary pick and it had blown all expectations out of the water. The interface is very user friendly and the sound, after adjustment, is crystal clear. There are two custom profiles for sound balance that allows tuning instantly to preferences. Two thumbs up!

    Great Audio Needs Help in Navigation

    Had it for only a couple weeks.. Audio is great and system works quickly and flawlessly but the navigation could be better with Garmin software.. Also miss a analog volume control knob. These are the two things the Kenwood had going for it.. But heard the audio and Pioneer System worked faster and smoother which I think it does..
