visually there was nothing I could find wrong with mine. It was brand new out of the box, I wired it up, plugged the 3.5mm in the port and the damn thing just never worked right.
I bought the second unit from Best Buy, swapped the box, but not the harness, then proceeded to waste another 6 hours between various tech support (Metrica, Pioneer, Crutchfield) and my time. Finally next day, swap the harness (easy this time as you just cut the wires and solder in the middle real fast) and whammo it worked. I have no idea if it was the 3.5mm plug or the black harness/connector piece. all I know is it worked perfectly afterwards and this ones going back to Crutchfield. BTW, 49.99 on Amazon
and BB price matched, so not only is crutchfield taking this back, I think I paid like $64.99 or $79.99 or something from them, more bottom line..
