Customer Reviews

Decent radio for the money
Review by
Install (5 star for easy)
I haven't had the radio installed for very long. But so far I seem to be a decent head unit. Plenty of nice features and the resolution seems really good. But I have the same complaint as other people who reviewed this product as far as the screen being hard to see in the sunlight, and it also seems like the radio signal is a lot weaker than the factory radio.
