I looked online for a new head unit but it seemed that all the units were in the above $500 range. I saw that Amazon had the Pioneer AVIC-U310BT on sale for $259.00. I did some research and found a mixed bag of reviews, for every good review, there was a not so good one. After a bit of thinking, I decided to bite. I'm glad I did.
I bought the head unit along with the PAC Can Bus module05-08 FORD RADIO CAN BUS MODULE INTERFACEand the Scosche Scosche FD1426B Double ISO DIN Kit for 2004-Up Fordmounting kit. The harness was about $80 and the mounting kit another $15. If you look at a lot of the head units out there, they offer Bluetooth as an option, not include it with as with this radio. That would have added another $100 to many of the competitors out there.
I opened up all the parts I bought and read all the documentation on all the items BEFORE I went outside. I prewired the Pac module, connecting all the wires to the wiring harness from the radio. This made it easy when I went out to the truck. Plug and play, the only wiring I need to do was routing all the wires for the microphone, GPS antenna and the Aux output wire for her Sirius radio.
About that Sirius, Pioneer offers the built in module for Sirius or XM. Both cost $100 and you have to find a place for the big Sirius modules under the dash. They don't offer some of the features the little Plug and Play units Sirius offers; pause, FF, and favorite song or artist reminders. We decided to keep her existing Sportster 5 and plug it into the Aux port.
I got it all installed in about 90 minutes. I placed the GPS antenna under the top tray on the dashboard. The antenna sees right through the plastic tray, and stays hidden. The iPod cable is simply the USB cable that came with the iPod. You can buy the cable from Pioneer for about $40. I don't see the need, as it works fine with the Apple cable. I put the iPod in the glove box, as you don't need to access it, all the controls can be reached from the head unit.
The sound from the radio is great. The GPS navigation seems to be good, but I can tell you more as we use it in real world driving. Some people have said that they had issues with Bluetooth not connecting consistently. I started and turned off the truck about 20 times so far, and each time it finds and connects to my iPhone....no issues at all. The sound quality of the included microphone seems good, so far. Again, we will see how it goes in real world driving conditions.
Overall, it isn't as neat as the $500-$1000 dollar head units out there, the screen is not as big, and it may not have all the features of its higher priced cousins. But to have GPS, CD, iPod and Bluetooth for about $350 total, it cannot be beat.
Edit 4/27/10 After a week of use:
Wanted to add a few items on the use of this system. First, some have complained about the quality of the microphone that is supplied with the unit. For us, it works well. I have been involved in both ends of phone conversations as both the sender from the truck, or as a reciever of a call from the truck. Both come in loud and clear. Perhaps other people had issue with the location of the microphone? We clipped it directly to the driver's visor.
Sound quality is fantastic. This head unit really takes advantage of the factory sub woofer in the Explorer. We never heard such powerful bass from the stock unit.
The iPod control takes a little getting used to, but once you figure it out, it works well. My wife has simply put the iPod on random from the head unit controls. It is like a juke box with thousands of songs.....it is playing songs we long ago forgotten that were on the iPod.
GPS navigation has been fine. Sure, not a lot of POI's, but we simply enter in addresses. For my wife, it is no big deal.
Using the PAC Sys can bus module made the wiring easy. The system knows when the truck is moving, it knows to dim the display when the headlights go on, etc. It is just like a factory installation.
Overall, we are still happy with the purchase.
My big complaint is with Amazon - nowhere do they disclose that they are not an authorized reseller for Pioneer car audio. When I had a problem with the Bluetooth microphone, I was told by Pioneer that the unit is NOT waranteed. So in essence, you have your normal 30 day window to return purchases to Amazon; after that, you have NO PROTECTION. If the unit dies on day 31, you are out of luck. This is borderline deceptive - if I knew that I was not getting a warranty, I would not have purchased from Amazon. By the time I learned, I had already invested lots of time and energy installing the unit in my car - if I decide to return I would have to reverse the process, then spend even more time installing something else. This will be the last electronics purchase I make from Amazon.
Second, INSTALL THE FIRMWARE UPDATE!!!! When I first tested the bluetooth with my iPhone, I couldn't hear the other party, nor could they hear me, even when I had the microphone close to my mouth. After the update, the bluetooth pairing with my phone was flawless. It has yet to come un-paired and I have not had a single problem with call quality. Navigation has been great also, it seems to be pretty fast and accurate with the position of my vehicle. It also (once you punch in a couple numbers) will give you miles per gallon, and when you plan out a trip, it will estimate the cost of gas you will use on the trip.
My only complaint is, in my opinion, the only flaw with this device. The preloaded Points of Interest are few and far between...seriously Pioneer? You couldn't just load em on there? No, they make you purchase a $120 sd card in order to have access to the 12million points of interest they have come up with. Sure there are third party sites to get em from, but I find it to be an incredible pain to have to go through and find every single store, restaurant chain, etc. and add them individually. The AVIC to iPhone link is also a pain, they dont tell you in the description that its not just "transfer the destination", you have to add it to a list on your iPhone, and you then have to re-sync it with the deck. This includes contacts, phone numbers, all of it.
It has a ton of fun features including picking the color of the light of your buttons, and it hooks right into my headlight control, so when I turn my headlights on, it automatically dims the display. Music from my iPhone plays easily through the usb connection, and I LOVE the control it has given me over my sound system setup. I have two ten inch subs running off of a Kenwood KAC-9104D 500W mono amp. On my previous deck, when I turned the bass settings all the way down they were still much too loud(even with the amp turned way down). Not only do they sound perfect now, this deck gives me the ability to control the crossover frequency at which the sound is "split up" and sent back to the subs. My previous deck didn't even come close to touching the level of customization and ability to fine tune the sound as this one does.
So all in all, for the money, this is an OUTSTANDING unit to purchase. There simply is no comparable product for the price. It gets 4 stars simply because the POI thing really irritates me...
