Gps/bluetooth/backup cam for under $500
Just finished installing a Jensen vx-7022 head unit to replace my 130 no connectivity factory system. Just wanted to share a quick review for anyone looking at this head unit:
Sound: I have the Alpine speaker system and the Jensen really wakes up the speakers. It also shows they're a little weak at higher volumes, so new speakers are now next on the list.
Interface: a little dated and clunky navigating the different options, the startup is slow, but nothing too horrible. Limited colors/backgrounds although there are instructions for uploading custom images.
Bluetooth: works flawlessly and was pleasantly surprised how clear the mic picks up given its mounted to the sun visor just an inch from the softtop. Also allows Bluetooth streaming but it's very basic and controlled via the phone.
Nav: the iGo interface is different from any other I've used, but so far it seems completely functional and even offers some 3D topography views (accuracy not verified). It has quite a few options for route choices (can even include 'unpaved' roads) and a decent amount of poi's.
SiriusXM: pretty much the same as any other...
Dvd: picture is crisp and movies play flawless
Backup camera: crisp picture and image reversing capable
