First of all, make sure this radio fits into your dash. It is definitely a full Din size both in width and depth. I was lucky in that it just barely fit into my Jeep Patriot. Installation was a breeze, but don't expect any help from the manual. The schematic on the unit was easy to understand and the wires were exactly as noted. Once installed, the radio fired up as expected. The screen motion was fine and has easy to understand menus. Bluetooth is a great feature and worked fine. The Ipod feature works flawlessly. I would have given this unit 5 stars if it wasn't for a few items. First of all, be carefull with the install kit you choose for your auto, as the player sits just a little way into the dash (as most radios do). This would normally be OK but the screens' pusher arms can scrape up the dash. A little contact should be OK but it is something to be aware of. As other people have noted with other Boss products, the sound is OK, but nothing to write home about. This really is made to be played loudly. That's where the high wattage comes into it's own. Low volume requires fine tweeking. And the clock is almost useless as it really can't keep time well. But I didn't buy this for the clock. Overall, for the price, you will not be disapponitd.
