5 Stars By bodhitechnica on 2015-09-18 So far So good Everything working well. I just got this one today and so far I am very happy with it. It was a good buy for the price. It was very easy to hook up (although I am a bit of a techy so that is not hard for me). What I like the most is that is has a micro SD card which i like to use both for music and for listening to my teachers lectures in school. It is has all the basic functions. The DVD player works well. The Bluetooth connects well for listening to music from my phone, and bluetooth has more control options from the screen than stereos without the screen do, so it is easy to control the music from the screen instead of from the phone. What I really like about pyle car stereos is they seem to have the best reception of FM stations, better than most any other brand I have tried, and although this head unit can do so much more than fm, that is something I still use the most. When I tried my , thands free calling to call my voicemail I thought the mic level was low, but when i called my friends they all say they can hear my fine. On my cell phone i use either the regular service or google voice to make calls and i think the google voice is louder. If i end up with problems with voice level i will edit my review. I like that this unit has a built in fan in the back. I know some car stereos break with overheating, having a fan might help this one last. At the same time i think it makes sense every few years to disconnect and take it apart to clean out any dust. I also like that this unit does not have a detachable face. I think those tend to break more. So I think this is good quality for pyle but still I recommend the extended warranty for peace of mind and because the regular pyle warranty would make the buyer pay for shipping if something broke.
4 Stars By Bill Frank on 2016-01-14 It's not awesome, but it is worth the low price For the price of what you get, this should easily be a 5 star radio. I am going to rate this as a 4 star, but many of you may be frustrated to the point that the unit will feel like a 1 or 2. Here is why: at first glance it seems like this unit is packed with an unbelievably amount of features for a super low price. The problem becomes that some of the features do not behave quite as expected. For me, a better manual or reasonable support would have gone a long way. First example, I saw a Chevy bow-tie logo on the screen in a review video; how do I upload a Mazda one for my car? You have to select from the ones available. Okay, not a big deal, but how do I do that? This is in the manual, but just not where you might think. Setup>Video>Select Power Logo. Next, Bluetooth. I have an AT & T iPhone 6+. The unit quickly paired and displays the name of my phone. However, oddly it does not provide any music information while streaming music. Again, not a big deal, just a little surprised; you would think it would take advantage of having the 6.5" screen - nope. The bad Bluetooth part: for me if I attempt to answer an incoming call by pressing green answer button on unit, it does answer the call, but the unit freezes with the exception of a running call timer. No audio can be heard on either end of the call. You must turn power off and on to bring the radio back to life. Here is the weird part: If you answer the call by using the button on the phone, my iPhone takes the call and switches audio to the phone, then select audio Bluetooth to the radio, it connects fine. In other words, audio is heard and head unit stays responsive. Furthermore, if you initiate a call from the head unit, it also performs normal. Sound quality, noise cancelling, etc are not awesome, but it works. The radio does not seem to pick up stations as well as the stock stereo did. Also, in the radio mode, Volume 0 is not completely quiet; however, since I don’t really listen to the radio, this didn’t bother me. If you do, and are getting this more for the backup camera capability rather than Bluetooth, this may not be the best radio out there. Speaking of which, back up camera feature (camera not included) works great. There is a standard video input and a lead to connect to the +12V reverse lights which will automatically switch the screen from any mode (CD/Radio/etc) over to the camera. At first I was disappointed because it muted the sound, but turns out that setting can be turned off. Not shown in the manual, but when you’re setting the logo mentioned above, you’ll also see Setup>Video>Parking Video Mute. Plugging my iPhone into the radio via USB to see if head unit would display music info and album art resulted in an error “Device not supported” this may be because mine is the 64Gb model. I say this because the unit return the same message for a 64Gb USB flash drive. The unit did read a 2Gb one, as well as a 32Gb microSD card. A movie DVD played previews, but never seemed to find the menu screen. My wife’s Season 7, disc 1 of Gilmore Girls played fine. Resolution is very bad. (Remember, this is a cheap player…be glad to be able to view DVDs) Some reviews complained about the touch screen. This screen is not like a modern iPhone or tablet. They have a glass screen that actually senses touch (not press). Wet your finger and see how well your iPhone screen works. This screen is plastic, and has two very thin membranes that you actually press to squeeze them together to indicate what you’re selecting. Having a wet finger on this type of display has no adverse effect. Once you understand the difference, that you have to physically press rather than simply touch, this screen is fine. It is low resolution (compared to iPad, etc), hard to see in day, really bright at night (it does not auto dim)…again, this is a cheap radio. While there is a wire to connect to your car’s lighting, it only controls whether the letters around the volume knob come on, and ever for them it’s either off or full bright. The screen does have an off button at the top, but any adjustment such as volume up/dn turns it back on. It would be nice if you could turn it off and it would stay off until you touched the screen, but nope. (no Biggie right). I thought it was nice that this radio has PreAmp outputs for front, rear, and subwoofer. However, in my case, since the jacks are right in the middle of the back of the unit, connecting the cables, even with right angle adapters caused the unit to not seat all the way in. Maybe for most, this won’t be a problem, it was just frustrating because I was looking forward to using this feature. The other weird thing, is that the SubWoofer PreAmp output is on a pigtail. I wished they did that for the others. Since I already have speaker to RCA converters this wasn't a big deal for me. Speaking of which, since I have mine configured like this and connected to a 50W x 4 amp, I cannot really comment of the stock sound, but my setup, using the unit as a pre-amp, sounds great. The EQ settings are really just Bass and Treble presets and a loudness on/off. Again, cheap radio; my stock unit only had the same. The subwoofer does not have a level adjust, so I use my amp's remote gain control. The last and for me the most frustrating great feature – the steering wheel controls. For me connecting it to a 2008 Mazda 3 did NOT require an adapter. Thank you to “DEAL CHASER” for pointing me in the right direction. The manual is completely useless on both how to wire and how to program the unit. For my car there were 2 wires in factory location pins 9(N) & 10(P). I connected one to radio “KEY 1” and the other to ground (or the car chassis). The other radio “KEY 2” is left unconnected. To program the head unit, go to Setup>General>Steer Settings. Ignore at bottom Default. Also Setup can be toggled between 1,2,&3, but seemed to make no difference. For my setup, when you first enter the Steer Settings page, the buttons shown where greyed-out and Voltage showed “-.--V”. You first press a button on the steering wheel, then the greyed-out buttons turn white. Select the corresponding button (it will turn yellow) then press OK at bottom. Notice that Map Num:0 at top increases to 1. Repeat this for all buttons then press X in upper right corner to exit. So, not a great screen, Bluetooth not perfect or feature packed, maybe not the best reception, lights don’t dim or match your interior, and if the manual was better maybe people could get more features out it. All in all, for the price and now that I got everything to kind-of-sort-of work, it’s not a bad deal.

It's a good little beginner double din head unit arrive when it was supposed to and packaging was just fine. The only thing is I do not like the heads-up display it has all of the graphics make it look like it was designed for children. Also you don't get as many customization options for it. I know this unit will only be in my car for probably 3 or 4 months before I trade it out for something a lot nicer. But for the $87 it did exactly what I needed except when I wanted to hook up my Subs or the antenna I needed to get an extender and an RCA splitter also this head unit does not come with a conversion kit for your make and model best way is to go to Best Buy or some car audio business and just pick one up for around or under $20. Also if you have steering wheel controls you will need to buy a secondary adapter and splice them into the adapter you purchase from Best Buy.
4 Stars By Derek on 2016-03-15 Good for the Price! After having this product in my car for about 3-4 months, I am really fairly satisfied. I would give this stereo 3.5 stars. This stereo is only $100, so you are only getting what you pay for. All of the features seem to work just fine (Radio, CD/DVD, Aux, Etc.) with the exception of the bluetooth. Accepted and hanging up calls is a common issue, and typically causes either the stereo to freeze or for no audio to be heard on both ends of the call. Music tends to stream over bluetooth fairly well, but would cut out and create issues reconnecting if a call was made. Personally, playing music through my own phone is something I strongly want, so I purchased an auxiliary input to avoid the hassle or constantly trying to fix and reconnect the bluetooth. This is the one I purchased: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B003B01AHS?psc=1&redirect=true&ref_=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00 and it took no more than 5 minutes to wire up.
All in all, it's everything I would expect from a $100 double din touch screen stereo. Is it the best, no, but it gets the job done. Not a bad purchase at all.
5 Stars By River S. on 2015-12-02 I ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT I absolutely love this radio! there are so many features to take advantage of but I bought it mostly because of the sound system. I had a radio in my car which made my subs sound like they were blown, but immediately after I installed this they sound like 10 freaken times better than before! Before they just rattled and the sound was crap but now I can't even see through my car mirrors because they shake so much from the bass lol! There are a few downfalls though: when I try to play videos from my Micro sd card on the screen they always say they are "wrong format" and won't play, also when you try to play videos from a flash drive it will do the same thing. Also it's pretty rare when this happens but the screen will freeze and I'll have to turn it on and off again, not sure why though. You also can't change the background colors or the button lighting colors on it. Doesn't come with aux compatibility but i don't care much because I just use the Bluetooth on it. I literally searched for hours every day for a cheap but decent car radio to replace my old one and when I bought this one I was super skeptical about it. But it turned out to be way better than I thought! I would definitely recommend this.
3 Stars By Christopher H. on 2016-04-23 Cheap, works well. Some issues. Ok, so I have had this for while now, and while the issues it has aren't major, they still erk me. The remote: It's big enough to not get lost, which is great, buy the buttons are in such dumb spots!! You have to literally look at it each time you want to do something! Also have to point it directly at the top corner of the radio, or it will not work. The Radio: Of all the things this can do, the one things it can't, is TELL TIME!!! Every three weeks or so, I have to go in and readjust the time. Like right now for example, it is 12:40, yet my car says it is 12:53. I just fixed the time three weeks ago. Annoying. The Media playback: Plays almost everything, except it won't play MP4!
4 Stars By Christina Bowles on 2016-03-30 A good, inexpensive touchscreen stereo Purchased this for my daughter's car as she wanted a touchscreen stereo but didn't have a lot of money to spend. Installation was easy as the stereo came with almost everything you would need. Buy a separate kit for your specific car and make sure it's for the "double-din" size stereo. Stereo delivers good sound and has lots of features. If you want back-up camera, you need to buy it separately but the capability is there. It also plays dvd movies as long as the parking brake is engaged and the picture quality is pretty good. Movie sound is delivered through your car's speakers. All in all, a good stereo for the money.
2 Stars By Stephen Tee on 2016-06-08 touch screen fails I put this in my '99 F250 in Dec 2015. This truck sits in my garage most of the time as a spare vehicle. It is june 2016 and the touch screen on the radio is totally inoperable. I dont think it could have more than 50hrs use. After the touch screen fails there is no way to control the radio. I bought it because the price to feature ration was good. I sent it in to be repaired and the unit was repaired and sent back quickly. I'm waiting to see if this was just a one off bad touch screen or a product reliability issue.

A BIG PAIN IN THE ASS ALSO THERE IS NO DIMMING FEATURE
5 Stars By BTA-MALL Customer on 2016-02-25 Pyle PLDN63BT is a great unit for a budget doubledin stereo So far, so good! I don't know where some of the negative reviews come from? because this unit does what it says! No, it's not a high dollar unit, but the sound quality is great compared to my factory stereo! no distortion at high volume levels like the factory unit. clarity is great! It gets better radio reception than my old factory radio too! Bluetooth works well, both music from my phone and making/receiving calls. I do not have a bad thing to say about this unit yet! For the price, it does what it says and beyond!
