If you’ve seen the reviews and like what you see and just skeptical because it’s not a popular name brand, I am writing this review to tell you to buy this unit, you will not regret it.

By Ryan Huey

  • Radio Reception

I read a lot about bad reception. I live 60 miles out of Houston, TX and the reception is just as good as my factory radio. Maybe very slightly less, but all the major radio stations come in perfect.

  • WiFi Hotspot

When I run the hotspot on my G5, it works fine. The apps are just as fast as my phone.

  • GPS Navigation

The iGo Nav app that comes with it was a lot better than I anticipated. When I don’t have the hotspot on, it’s definitely sufficient. I prefer Google Maps (when you first open, scroll down to accept terms, it took me a minute to figure that out). Finally, you can do a real map research, this is so much better than my Infinity Nav System.

  • OBDII

I bought a cheap OBDII Scan Tool and set it up through Bluetooth (PIN 1234), downloaded Torque, and it runs great. Still haven’t had time to set it all up yet, but it’s very cool for $15 for tool and app.

  • Pandora

I downloaded Pandora and it works great. It’s much quieter than the radio, so the radio was loud when I switched back. There are setting to change volume settings for the different modes to fix that.

  • Steering Wheel Control

I used the Axxess programmer to set up the steering wheel buttons (brown wires to “key” 1&2 brown wires). Got instructions from the AXXESS website for my vehicle and it was fairly easy to program. I like that you have many options to program buttons to something else. I used my “MODE” button for “HOME”. That way if I want to open an app while driving, I hit MODE (HOME) and I have the apps I use driving on the HOME screen, so I just need to glance down onece and push it. Otherwise, you have to look over, hit HOME button, scroll to find the app, and then push it. I got the 6.95″ Android 4.4 head unitbecause I have volume buttons on my steering wheel control. Otherwise I probably would have gone with the unit with a volume knob. There are volume buttons, but you’d almost have to look down every time to use them.

  • In Conclusion

This radio may not have everything you’d dream of and may not be set up exactly the way you want, but it’s SOOOO much better than any of the mainstream radios out there. If you’re like me and have priced the mainstream radios with Nav from $800-$1000, you’ll think there’s no way this is good quality for under $400. I don’t know if it’s Bose quality, but it’s damn good.

3 Advantages that a Car Radio SD Card Slot Gives You

It's only fair to share...Share on FacebookShare on Google+Share on LinkedInPin on PinterestShare on RedditShare on TumblrShare on StumbleUponDigg thisShare on VK

As technology moves forward, more options are available for stereos, including a car radio SD reader. This is similar to an MP3 player, but much smaller. SD stands for Secure Digital, and these small cards are used to store information for handheld devices. They are commonly found in digital cameras, laptops and more recently, touch screen car stereo. There are several reasons to consider this over other types of stereos.

图片1

1. Size

An SD card is much smaller than other types of music media, including MP3 players or CDs. An SD card can easily fit in a wallet, and is simple to keep tucked away when not in use. If you don’t need to listen to tens of thousands of songs, an SD car stereo may be a great option. In most cases you can get around 1,000 songs on each SD card, depending on the size of its memory.

2. Easy to Replace

Also unlike an MP3 player, an SD card is cheaper and easier to replace. Replacing one of these if they become damaged or lost can be as little as $20. Replacing an MP3 player can be well over $100. You can also find replacement SD cards very easily; most retail locations and drug stores will carry them.

3. Video Formatting

For those who have an audio/video system set up in their vehicle, some cards will allow you to upload videos to the card. This can be a benefit if you’re traveling with young children. You can just pop the card into the Nissan car stereo and the video will be played on the video system.
