    Complete with Bezel trimmed. Install was very easy! Ran the backup camera wire down the driver side dash to the drivers seat then out the bottom through a plug the along the bottom to the Tailgate. Front Camera and Mic are up on the headrest and windshield.

    GPS location! Easy as that! Since the GPS is magnetic it will stick on top of Headunit and the Thin dash is open in the area! Signal is strong as can be! Some Audio Installers do this or mount it to the Metal Crossbar in the dash! As long is no metal is surrounding above it.

    Do you switch to the backup cam manually or does it know when you are in reverse? How is the stereo? Thanks!

    Radio reception is pretty poor. Sound quality is good on mp3 or Pandora though! When Pandora works that is!

    what are you not happy with, with this unit? or think could be better? and the mic, is that for Bluetooth phone calls, or to record with the forward facing camera?

    Alittle better Radio interface and could be stronger. Might add the Booster too it, Mic is not too bad. Use the blue tooth calls and was bad, I can really compare cuz I never used Bluetooth calls before besides my small headset. The front camer is ok but it records great! The rearview camera is better quality!
    I guess a 5.01 update is coming for the radio so hopefully so nice changes are in store!

    after 3 days of having the unit installed the back button sticks and Joying refuses to even acknowledge the problem in any of my emails like they are avoiding the question! If you are in the market of a Android radio please try anything but JOYING!

    If you are a PANDORA user, for some reason it only works half the time on these units! then when you go to the Radio to listen to music the reception is poor most of the time! VERY VERY BUGGY HEAD UNIT!!!!!!! and Very Poor responses to emails with problems on about the Headunit. Just warning all people who are interested in buying one!

    Sorry to hear about your problems,
    I know how it goes with these types of head units. I have been searching for a reliable one that suits my needs. ( A full purpose unit with DSP built in )
