If you are looking for a cost effective solution to upgrading the radio in your Acura this BOSS CD/DVD touchscreen double din radio is a great choice. It has Bluetooth, USB, CD/DVD, AUX, android wired mirroring and the option to add a backup camera or an aftermarket subwoofer. What this radio doesn’t have is Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, built in GPS, or Sirius XM capabilities. Installing this unit is very straightforward. The microphone, USB and AUX ports are right in the front of the radio and don’t require any additional components to function. Once the radio is connected and mounted in place you are good to start enjoying it. Our plug and play kit remove the need for any wiring so all you have to do is plug everything in. Our radio kit also allows you keep your factory steering wheel controls, amplifier, speakers and factory navigation in most Acura’s.
Who should buy this radio:
The best use case for this radio is for someone who wants Bluetooth audio streaming/calling and a backup camera. The touchscreen on this radio is responsive and has nice colors so using it to control your music and answer phone calls is easy. This radio is also a great buy for someone who has an android phone and wants to watch movies or videos. The mirroring feature allows you to show what ever is on your phone screen to the radio screen. You can also control the android phone straight from the radio’s screen. The tactile buttons and volume knob also are a great benefit of this radio. Almost all new aftermarket radios come without a volume knob and most are incorporating capacitive touch buttons so its nice to have buttons you can feel a knob you can turn.
Who should look for something else:
If you are looking for Apple CarPlay or Android Auto this radio is not for you. If you are looking for built in GPS, Sirius XM capabilities, or iPhone Mirroring this radio is not a good choice. This radio also isn’t suggested for those who want to run a complex aftermarket audio system. This radio works great with the factory audio system in the Acura TL, MDX and TSX but with aftermarket equipment this radio doesn’t have all the recommended settings to run multiple amplifiers. Installing a subwoofer amplifier is no problem but if you are planning to run a two or three amplifier system then we recommend a Kenwood radio instead.
