Not to bad.
CLIFF GADD on 18/08/2021 3 star rating

Easy to install and sounds good but connecting your mobile can take a while sometimes. The tablet does restart itself unexpectedly at times usually when running Google maps or if pressing buttons to quickly but it is an older style tablet and not quite samsung or ipad quality. All in all, I nice addition to the motorhome but a real shame I didn't buy it a day later when the price was reduced another £50.00. Just my luck 🙄

Sound quality and speed
Imran Ghaffar on 09/02/2021 2 star rating

I was very exited to have it but when I put into my car I got very disappointed I will not recommend at all the reason is below, 1) main thing is sound quality that everybody want it should be clear sound and base etc, is not good as I was expecting because I have used so many different stereo I have good idea what means sound quality. 2) operating system is really slow you connect with WiFi or with phone hotspot same this it’s take time. 3) you have no option to forward the song or reverse the song from screen via using Bluetooth from mobile very bad. 4) have to connect two Separate units with your phone means you have to connect tablet separate and head unit separate and sometimes one unit connected but have to connect 2nd unit manually means waste of time again and again when you start car engine will disconnect The weight of the main unit is really really low looks like it empty 5) can’t use map on this tablet as it is really slowly opens and takes time 6) hard to mange while drive Only screen result and touch system is little better nothing else These everything is for pointer they should be ashamed grabbing money but not giving quality product I am very disappointed .

Steve Caird on 12/06/2020 1 star rating

Very dissapointing I would not reccomend, better off with a dab double din head unit and a separate tablet. The tether connection is hit and miss and navigating around it is very slow. To be honest I feel ripped off and I think pioneer should be ashamed. I have actually complained to piioneer but they have not responded. Biggest waste of money I have ever spent.
