I was so pumped for this product when I first saw the announcement for it a little over a month ago. Now that I have it and have spent the past 3 days using it I can safely say it has been a huge letdown. I really wanted it to work as well, I tried my hardest to see past all the issues, but there are so many and they interfere so heavily with the usability I couldn't. For that reason I'm returning it. I'll detail the specifics individually further down.

First, the idea itself was a great one. One I am convinced would have worked if it were not for the buggy software and the slow interface. It feels as if the product was rushed to market before it was thoroughly tested and tweaked. The line between great product and horrid one is thin here and this one missed the mark for myself. Also, I didn't count off for this as I was fully aware of it going in, but am posting it as an FYI to future less informed buyers. This product turns into a mediocre radio without an iPhone 4. It has no other input and will be a waste of $400 if you don't have one or don't plan on keeping yours for a while once you get the radio. I can't stress this enough, without an iPhone this radio is a few steps from useless.

Install & setup:
This was par for the course as far as any radio is concerned. I mounted the GPS antenna on the dash and the mic by my sun-visor. More than enough cable for both tasks. I am unsure if I could have gotten the GPS antenna to my back window, but it would have been tight. All other items installed like you would expect any aftermarket radio.

The fit and finish of the actual hardware is good. The microphone and GPS antenna look and feel like they are quality items and will last a while.

Installed in a 2005 Toyota Tacoma.

This product is a terrific idea. Unfortunately it's execution is not so great. Overall I feel like I paid $399 to be a beta tester. I installed this on 06/24/11 and have been using it all day today 06/25/11

Pros -
Pandora, IPOD, Google Maps, iPhone on one interface
Sound Quality


Slow Startup

Pinch to zoom in Google Maps has been disabled. You are confined to stupid zoom bar. - But you can pinch in the GPS apps that you purchase. Is that why it is disabled, so that you are forced to buy these apps?

No Phone Numbers displayed on a google map search result - So if I want to say call a nearby restaurant to see if they are open or ask some other dumb question, I have to grab my iphone and lookup through google maps. This totally defeats the purpose of purchasing this product.

Terrible call quality through bluetooth.
Phone is setup through bluetooth thought it is plugged in. Everyone I have called while using this product says I am far away though I have placed the mic on my sun visor and tilt it down so it is 5-6 inches from my mouth. Why not have the option to connect to the phone through the cable so you can have optimum call quality? Seems like a no brainer! No mic volume options either.. This could possibly help resolve this problem.

Does not import/display Favorite Phone Numbers. - If you are like me with 200 + contacts, you rely on your favorites list for frequent numbers. You will have to use your iphone to dial your favorite numbers which AGAIN, totally defeats the purpose of having this product.

Search though the synced phonebook is SLOW

Stuck on the phone interface when an incoming call is answered.

I ordered this yesterday from Amazon, got it this afternoon and installed it tonight into my Honda Fit...

What a HUGE let down.....

Hardware issues:
- The iPhone cable is downright horrible... it's unnecessarily long, goes from two cables into one (why not just make it one cable?), wiggles when it is plugged in, and is stiff as can be where it meets the phone.... such a poor design
- The GPS antenna only comes with 10 feet of cable, forcing me to mount the antenna on the dash of my Honda Fit.. yuck (my older Pioneer F700 had an easy to work with 16 feet)
- Saving the worst for last: be warned that there is only one single set of RCA outputs !!!! I'm still beside myself on this.....

Software issues:
- The "app" that Pioneer provides for free in the AppStore *has* to be running for any interactivity with the radio (meaning: you have to have the phone mounted where you can get at it)
- This "app" on the last line *does not* run in the background on the phone, so you come out of the app, the radio stops working (Nav/Pandora/Google Maps)
- Apps cannot be run simultaneously... if you think you are going to be able to listen to Pandora while using Motion-X, you're dead wrong
- There is no way to "quit" an app from the radio, you have to do it on the phone..... which I see as dangerous as it's a lot of presses on the phone to quit an app
- Phone contacts are not easy to go through, it dumps out all your contacts in one big list with no way to search or jump to a letter..... i had to press the down arrow 26 times (!!!
