After a week of researching the best GPS/DVD combo drives I bought this unit. I had a DVD/GPS system in my car before this unit and it was garbage.
First of the picture is very clear even on sunny days the screen still looks good WVGA display. I had mine bypassed so i can played music dvds while i drive. The gps fuctions well. I most use my iphone on it. Sound quality is amazing. It has truly delivered crisp clean sound and has a built in digital equalizer. I was going to purchase the Kenwood version of this but i found that this unit has a fast interface, meaning you hit a button on a screen and stuf happens immediatley like an iphone theres virtually no lag. Boot time is reasonable id say 15 sec for the screen but if you had music playing id say the musci on in 10 sec or so... You can also choose what color the LEDs are for the system. my car has orange leds on the odometer and main dash so this unit matches like its a factory install. theres more apps like pandora some few others that can be used on this unit. has call feature. very clear phone calls through my iphone. This thing has all the features of the popular appRadio but more. but the sheer speed of the interface and picture quality is what really sold me.. the unit is not pixelated at all. looks even better at dusk without all that sunlight glare. please note you must buy that iphone dock cord to get the full use of this unit if you have an iphone/ipod etc its like $30 on amazon

I owned the z130bt and was anxiously awaiting the z140bh, as I thought there could be nothing better than an update of an already excellent product. After paying over $1000 here on Amazon for the z140bh, and being one of the first buyers for this headunit in USA, I was sorely disappointed, if not angry, that the z140bh failed miserably.

I kept my z130bt in my 2nd car, and installed the z140bh in my brand new car. So I, as a regular joe type, was able to analyze the performance of both units side by side. My conclusion...THE Z130BT IS BETTER THAN THE Z140BH.

First, I didn't notice any true processing speed increase. Maybe, and I mean maybe, there was just a little increase in the z140bh, but it was nothing that was clearly discernible.

Second, the sound quality didn't change. I got the same ranges and depth from both headunits, although the vocals on both units regarding AM sports talk radio leaves something to be desire. You have to really fumble with the EQ to get it right, but both units do at least allow come tinkering.

Third, there's no viable difference in the look of either unit. You can put them both together and you will not see a difference in hardware or screen presentation.

Fourth, maybe, and I mean maybe, the touchscreen on the z140bh was a bit more responsive. But again, if it is, it is nothing that clearly stands out.

Fifth, the z140bh shows a bit of love toward Android phones by allowing Pandora and Aha to be compatible, but if you are not into these apps (as I discovered I was not), then why bother?

Sixth, they do add Advance App Mode built into the z140bh, but unless you have an Iphone (no Android compatibility), you will not be able to use it.

This is indeed a nice unit. It does what you would expect and seems to work well. The user interface is pleasing to look at and much nicer than many others I have seen. I like the AppRadio feature and that is probably why I bought this.

It is tough to review (and shop to buy) these units as most people don't have hands-on experience with multiple different kinds of units. I generally expected that this unit, along with most others from other manufacturers, would have some stupid little things with the user experience. Every car radio I've bought over the last 10 or 15 years seems to make me say "why the heck did they do this???" So when buying a unit, my goal was to find one that had the LEAST number of these strange design features.

These little nagging issues include stuff like showing "preset 1" and "preset 2" instead of the radio station numbers -- or letting you program a name for a station. I simply can't understand why Pioneer doesn't show the numbers for the station on the button where you change channels. There is ample room for this to be there. From what I've read, previous versions did show more info but for some reason they've removed this in this new unit.

Another nagging issue is that they don't make it easy to understand where a POI in the map is when you are searching for something! I know other units can show north/south/east/west arrows next to the entries but not this unit (I can understand there are some tricky things about doing that though). But they don't even show you the street number on the entries! So if you search, say, for a Starbucks -- and there are many results, you have no easy way to figure out which is most convenient!

If you are looking for a GPS/receiver unit that parallels a Garmin or perhaps a very recent OEM unit don't bother. You will be sorely disappointed. Kenwood is the only one that comes close, as they actually have an agreement with Garmin. If you've never used a GPS (????) then this might be new and wondrous to you. Shocking.

I've tried Pioneer and even Alpine. Bottom line: their user-interface team s&cks. Or more likely is non-existent. They must hire the reject developers from Garmin or Apple. I'm not sure the designers even used one of the aforementioned devices. They must be living under a rock. Yet s&ckers like me optimistically read the "rave" reviews and dismiss the stinkers.

The interfaces and technology are SIGNIFICANTLY behind the state of the art. As more new cars (and used cars as time goes on) come standard with blue tooth, hd, satellite, and GPS fully integrated into the vehicle, these companies will soon be scrambling to find new markets. As handheld GPS and smartphone get ever increasingly smarter, you'll be kicking yourself for not just spending your $$$ on that, and by a nice, standard head unit for a lot less $$$.

In fact the menus for Alpine and Pioneer are so similarly stinky, that they must have been written by the same developer-reject. If you are the person or person(s) responsible for these (and about the past 4-5 similar model lines) please stand-up. I'm sending a big raspberry your way. Shame on you and your company for passing off the useless devices on consumers. Look up iPod, look up Garmin on Wikipedia. Earn your salary and try to come up with something a little similar without copying.

Why useless:

-screen - 7" but usually devoid of data, especially in 3D mode.
