    Pro: Best head unit made and has every feature you could want, Garmin based GPS, Parrot Bluetooth with A2DP, crossovers and dual 13 band EQs, 24 bit D/A convertors, 5V preouts, 7" high res screen, voice control, etc.

    Con: Lag from touch screen button press to next menu screen popping up is 2 seconds. Most expensive head unit... will get under $1000 in a month or less. Menu takes about 6 months to get down really well. Voice controls are only mediocre. Limited to 100 album art covers from ipod.

    Pros: good sound, great options, easy setup. installation was a breeze.

    Cons: lots of wires and not a lot of space in the Taco. Navigation is odd sometimes. It takes me on some weird trips.
