3.0 out of 5 stars Sounds Good, User Interface needs work, October 10, 2012
By 
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Pioneer DEH-3400UB CD Receiver with LCD Display, Color Customization, and USB Direct Control for iPod/iPhone (Electronics)
I replaced an old sony stereo with this in my Jeep Wrangler. I installed this myself and it was fairly straight forward. The wiring diagram in the instructions was easy to follow.

I'm happy with how it sounds. Its a definite improvement from my old stereo. The ipod integration works well. The usb port charges my iPod touch (4th gen) and I can search and play music either using the stereo buttons or from my iPod.

I deducted two stars because the user interface is just horrible. However every aftermarket stereo seems to have the same issue and its no worse then other aftermarket stereos I have used. I can't understand why this is always the case. Car manufacturer stereos don't have this issue so why do aftermarket stereos always have a rubbish user interface?

The color change feature is gimmicky but is fun and cool. I liked the green color, but I can change the color if I want. The funny thing is that the buttons to change color is easy to figure out, but trying to change the radio station frequency is just impossible!!
