This review is from: BOSS Audio 612UA In-Dash Single-Din USB/SD/MP3 Player Receiver (Electronics)
OMG!! I was floored at how well this unit works and sounds! What can I say, the sound is WAY better than expected. The functionality is awesome. I hooked this unit up in my wife's 2002 hyundai santa fe and added a sirius car kit to it, she is in heaven now during her long commutes to and from work. The display is nice mildly entertaining, wish this had video :)

AWESOME BUY!!!!

I'm going to wait awhile to do a full-fledged review (to see how the unit does over time--perhaps even in winter): I'm quite happy with this model now, though! The volume control does just that--unless another button (intended to initiate config) is pushed beforehand--the round volume control then assists with configuration. Sound is very good and the fader is more accurate than my previous Pioneer unit. The Boss lacks the detachable faceplate so common on pricier units, though. The larger plug on end of unit's detachable wiring is intended for a VW of some type--I had to cut that off--many others noted this, too. Otherwise, install was pretty easy.

This is not a good beginner/first unit for self-install--it comes only with the virtually always included aluminum sleeve around the unit (intended for vehicle pocket install)--as well as commonly included "pullers" intended for removing factory radios, a short manual with somewhat sketchy explanations for how to use buttons, and, a warranty card to send in. Only the included "pullers" and the aluminum sleeve (which installs with a "click to surround the unit) may be used for install (and, then not always).

Again, unless one has a VW--one for which the larger plug for the unit installs into that model's factory harness--one must then cut off the larger plug at that end--then the user may proceed to splice the wires to the commonly purchased aftermarket harness intended for install, instead, into your vehicle's factory harness (and, perhaps those of some similar vehicles). Cutting such a plug off to access those wires is quite unusual in car stereo install--that likely proves yet another stumbling block for those new to car stereo install....

Actually, you probably don't have to cut off any wires at all.
Just keep the existing plug this comes with, buy the adapter plug for your make/model/year of car, which has a female plug to match the plug in your car's wiring on one end and exposed color-coded wires on the other end.
You use butt connectors or the like to match up the color-coded wires on the adapter to the exposed wires on the plug that this stereo comes with, plug the plug this stereo comes with into the back of the stereo, then plug in the adapter.
Bolt everything up, and turn your key on.
Everything should start up just fine.
Btw...I recommend using quick-detach connectors to match up the wiring from the adapter plug to the stereo plug to make switching the stereo from one car to the other much easier.
You then simply buy the appropriate adapter plug for the other car, put on the matching quick-detach connectors on it, then plug them into the existing stereo plug's connectors, and go.
I've done that with my now eight-year-old JVC stereo receiver, having used that little shortcut with three cars over the years, and the JVC is still going strong.
