    Terrible viewing angle

    I purchased this dash kit along with a Kenwood DNX 574S double-DIN unit for my daughter's 2009 Honda Civic. Best Buy installed both and did a fine job however the Metra dash kit opening makes the unit sit so horizontal (as opposed to angled forward) that the screen is virtually unreadable in daylight. It was so bad that I bought some black heavy paper from a craft store and fashioned a "visor" that my daughter could slip into the DVD slot. That helped but made it awkward getting to some of the controls. Still, it was absolutely necessary. Later I purchased a Kenwood rear view camera which Best Buy also installed. I had an opportunity to use my daughters car and I noticed the camera picture was so dark it was almost useless. I found it was better if you scooted over and up so you were looking straight on to the screen which was difficult at best. The Kenwood unit even allows you to set the viewing angle and even at its best setting the screen was washed out. I wanted my daughter to be able to get the full use out of her electronics so I did some research on better angled installation kits. Several people said the Scosche HA1561 had a better angle so I purchased one. (Best Buy doesn't carry that unit so I had to purchase it elsewhere.) It does indeed have a better angle. The bottom of the Kenwood unit sits back an additional 1/2 inch which makes the unit more upright and less susceptible to glare. The screen is brighter and my daughter is much happier. I trimmed down my homemade "visor" so she could still use it but she doesn't think she'll need it. I uploaded a picture showing the Metra unit on the left and the Scosche unit on the right. You can see the difference of the bottom mounting point. The Scosche unit is 1/2 to 5/8 " deeper at the bottom. While the Metra kit fits fine, the viewing angle is a showstopper.

    Bad angle

    The guy at Best Buy recommended a different product because of the angle issue from the dash. Son uses his phone for radio almost exclusively so it didn't matter, but if you interface with the radio get the other kit that changes the angle

    Overall good color match and fit. Mine has some small overcasting along visible edges that could be filed away but item is painted. Kit mounts receiver at an angle so glare on touch screens could be a issue.

    Looks almost OEM, but not a perfect fit

    Looks like my stock dash, but is not perfectly flush and the AC buttons feel a little stiff and are harder to push. It was also a PAIN to install because of the tight fit, but overall a quality product that is as advertised.

    Looks Nice but Bad Angle for Radio

    The installation kit looks fine but causes the radio to sit at a high angle so that the driver cannot see the dials. Fault is actually with Honda, not necessarily with the kit.

    Dash kit doesn't fit perfectly, but

    Colors match the stock dash fairly well, but it does not sit perfectly flush with the rest of the dash. All the buttons seem to work the same as before, so the only complaint is the lack of flush fit.

    This product is okay for my Honda but the only downside is that if you get a 7 inch stereo there will be a glare on your screen. Other then that everything looks good on the dash.

    This car install kit worked well. There was a slight dis alignment on the passenger side seam. But other than that fits well.

    The way it blends into the dash is not smooth and my stereo sits at a bad angle after several tries ...it still does not sit right? I do not recommend this item.

    It makes my car look like new, has a great quality and looks very luxurious, I admit that I didn't think that it could work, but once installed WOW, just awesome

    I wasn’t able to use the product because it didn’t fit my stereo I had bought. Although if it would have it would’ve been perfect

    Go with any other dash mount, this one doesn't remotely resemble the original dashboard. Doesn't line up, looks pretty sloppy

    This fit pretty well - not perfect but it gets the job done well. Not too difficult to do either.
