One review on here stated that on Chevy trucks the screen will interfere with the shift lever in the Park position. This is true on my 2001 Suburban, but it is nobodies fault and what I would call an undesirable characteristic. The screen stops itself if anything interferes with its operation. I try and stay aware and make sure it’s closed before exiting the vehicle. It opens just fine, just gets caught up on the lever in the PARK position when the screen is folding in to close.
All in all, this is a great little unit that packs a lot of features and sounds amazing. My suburban had aftermarket audio and video installed when it was new. With aftermarket amps that controlled everything. With this I was able to hook up the amps for the speakers and subs with the RCA cable hook ups. So it worked out perfectly in my situation.
I also hooked up two existing DVD headrests to this unit, it works flawlessly and great because I can control and see what’s going on while I’m driving. Although I don’t think you should be watching TV while driving, I had to hook it up this way so I could run the rear screens while driving. Then I just close my screen and let the kids watch. Ive seen enough of Daniel Tiger the way it is.

Update: dropped the rating due to system failure after approx. 10-12 months and 6 of those months the ruck wasnât used because my transmission had a failure.
There is a 3 year watery in the car stereo but takes some time getting through the process.
There are some other things that are frustrating about the stereo but I think enough has been said in other post that give the car stereo a bad review.
Thankfully, BOSS is replacing it with a brand new one they told me. Only issue I have is they donât have any in stock and I have to wait.
In the mean time itâs iphone and wait.

For 50 bucks, you get Bluetooth connectivity, SD card, USB, and AUX inputs, decent power output (enough to drive your typical 4 speaker stereo system) and neat looks. Bluetooth pairing was a breeze and I was instantly streaming my music files or streaming services. Loaded up an SD card and I now have music for weeks. The USB port is useful if you have an old iPod full of music, but it doesn’t charge your device. Bluetooth streaming is very clear. Hands free talking is not bad. Overall you do get a whole lot for such low price.
SD card file navigation is a pain. Just don’t do it while driving, ever. Just set it to random and be happy with that. It also doesn’t seem to recognize AAC (iTunes) files, only MP3 and possibly WMA. Bluetooth calling works great, for you as a listener, but for the other end, you might have to speak a bit louder than usual. I was told I sounded fairly clear but distant at freeway speeds. The buttons do feel cheap, in fact the volume button got stuck a few times in the depressed position (it brings up the bass/treble/fader menu when you press it) a few times at the beginning but not anymore. I think it might eventually break. Also the remote control is a bit hard to read and lacks textured “dots” to help you navigate through it without looking. Overall navigation is a bit confusing but I guess once you get used to it, then it’s not too bad.
In the end, this is a budget head unit and it does offer a whole lot for the price, so issues should be expected. If you want a real quality head unit then I don’t need to tell you that a $50 unit won’t be it. But if you want to update your 90’s cassette player or CD player with a 21st century Bluetooth and portable media expansion port unit on a budget, then this is it.
