Who should look for something else:
This radio is almost perfect for anyone but if you are on a tight budget then this radio may not be the best option for you. If you are looking for built in GPS Guidance or a DVD/CD player this radio is not a good choice. This radio also isn’t recommend for someone who stores music on USB thumb drives while the USB charging is 3.0A the traversing of folders to find music is slow and sometimes the audio information doesn’t even show on the screen. Lastly if you want to add a backup camera to this unit if you don’t perform a firmware upgrade before doing so the picture may be low quality.
