    Default Is this too good to be true?

    My moto in life has always been buy cheap buy twice and I am really tempted by this bit of kit, but is it really to good to be true?

    All I want from it is the ability to have bluetooth and play my music via my Ipod. But I want a double din unit as no offense to anyone, I think they look a lot better than having the extra pocket underneath a single one.

    Has anyone had or currently have stereo's from these guys?

    I had the 716 model , the only problem I had with how the unit looked was the fact that when installed because it has a removable face the front of the unit sticks out a out an inch further than the buttons on the dash

    We won't go any further into the problems
    I actually had with the unit as I think I just got a bad one , a few people have had no problems with it

    Personally if you just want to be able to use bluetooth and your iPod I'd get a mki9100/9200 parrot fitted instead
