Pros: loaded with features, installation & hook up is straight forward and easy, price is great, plays DVD's, has rear camera feature, has separate subwoofer output, detachable face.
Cons: Very weird, but you cannot listen to music while the backup camera is operating nor when you are adjusting the settings (fader, bass, treble, balance) - so you cannot compare how a song sounds when adjusting the fader for example - you have to set it, then go back to playing music. Instructions are poor, confusing, and in some places incorrect (you cannot set the clock by holding down the clock button).
The installation doesn't explain this but I am experienced at installing and wiring... the backup camera activation wire needs to be hooked up to the positive wire on your backup lights otherwise your backup cam won't show up on the screen and the parking wire needs to be grounded to be able to watch video. So you can ground it and be able to watch video any time (even driving) or you can hook it up such that it only is grounded when the parking brake is activated (more advanced).
The small screen is OK for use as a backup camera or maybe watching video while parked, but not practical for watching movies for the kids in the back seat.
