-This radio is a single DIN (generic radio size for most cars) If the radio you are replacing is more than two inches in height, then you'll also need to buy a dash kit to fit your radio slot from double to single DIN. You'll also need to secure the metal sleeve that comes on the radio too your new dash kit.
-You'll need a wire harness specific to your car model. This allows the power and speaker wires that come with the radio to connect with the speaker and power wires in your car. To do this, just match the colors of your radio wires to the colors of the wire harness wires. Either solder the ends together or wrap them around each other and put a protective cap on them. Also make sure you do this before you connect the harness to the car. Make sure you connect all the radio wires to the wire harness. There will likely be more wires on the harness than you'll need. Ignore unused wires. Also sometimes your car will have more cables than the radio will need. Ignore them. This radio has a 4 channel output. This means it'll only connect to four speakers. It has out puts for an amplifier as well, if you want to attach more speakers.
-Connect the wire harness and antenna wire to the back of the radio, and you're good to go. Some people recommend you disconnect the battery to be safe.
Great radio for the price. I was expecting a cheap plastic cover. I'm a trained competitive musician, and am quite pleased with the sound quality. A lot of people think the blue LED is too bright at night, in reality it's far less bright than the headlights of oncoming traffic. The sleeve that comes with the radio is a little tricky to mount, but its nothing a little creativity won't solve. I've also seen some reviews complaining of volume. The loudest output is 50W out of each speaker, which is more than loud enough to concern your doctor and anger your nicest neighbors. Don't be that jerk face. Overall this radio is exactly what I expected for the money with a better sound quality than I thought.
The screen is quite small, which one can tell from the pic, but on top of this the bottom part is completely wasted. What you see in the pic is not optional, it is all the bottom half can do. The graph portraited as a spectrum analyzer is surprisingly unrelated to sound frequency, it is essentially a vu-meter with a predefined curve. The constant picture of a car in the middle is even more useless. Bottom line: the entire screen can only show 7 characters at a time, so that compounds to the navigation buttons issue.
I am pretty sure it does not play the first fraction of a second of at least some of my mp3 files. This is only noticeable on tracks that have audible music immediately of course.
These issues are what earn it this mediocre rating. Other aspects are decent.
Price - can't beat it for something that could easily be stolen (soft top Jeep Wrangler (YJ) with 1/2 doors).
Weight - being much lighter than the unit it replaced it is less likely to be jarred out of place when offroad.
Size - the compact size means that there is more room behind the head unit to tuck those wires in.
Ease of Use - pretty much explains itself - you'd have to be pretty dense or mostly illiterate to not be able to figure out the included directions.
FM Reception - the receiver seems to be at least as good as the one it replaced. Not much choice out where I live, so anything it does pick up is a bonus. (NOTE - haven't tried AM yet).
Clock - as mentioned in other reviews, it sure would be nice if the clock displayed when the unit was off, or you could set it to display the clock while on.
Wire Leads - man, talk about minuscule wire gauge! I like to solder my wire splices, and the wires included in the (two) connector plugs are about as small as you can get - I guess that they aren't expecting this unit to consume or produce much power, but still....
Display - would be nice if you could set the display brightness - but to be fair, at this price point I don't know of any units that have that option.
Sound - as mentioned above, it does not compare to an older unit with beefier output IC's to give it a more mellow tone. It's OK for an old Jeep with wind whistling in around the doors and all of the groans and squeaks though.
Overall, I give this unit a solid four out of five. For the price it does what it says it should, and the installation was pretty straightforward. The wire color schema matched the industry standard (but with tiny little conductors). If I have any hiccups, I will be sure to come back and amend my review!
EDITED TO ADD: I received one of the units that actually uses the two plugs instead of one as shown by the product description photos. No biggie - the color schema is the same as using a single-plug design. Red for switched power, Yellow for constant (memory, unswitched) Black for ground and Blue for power antenna or can be used to wake/trigger a properly wired Amplifier.
