  1. I purchased this unit along with the 360 camers, and the OBD unit. I must say, I am happy with the unit. I have connected the OBD (that was easy, just plug it into the car, but I have yet to connect the 360 cameras. One thing about the unit I did not like was the RCA audio out. There is only 1 set. How can you get real stereo sound if there is only L/R? I had to purchase a passive EQ that only took 1 set of RCA inputs that then changed it into a 4 channel output. Without the passive EQ, I would have had to use an adapter to change it from a 2 channel to a 4 channel output. Also, I finally found a Ford Explorer on the CANBUS that could control almost everything. But, my voice control button of my steering wheel still does not work. Also, the subwoofer is only a 1 channel output. I used a splitter for that. The sound is great especially if you use the DSP app.This is the 4th Tesla style radio I purchased, sending every one of those units back because there was something it would not do. One stopped working. Another could not get the AC unit working. The third one had no steering wheel control, opting to give me a small remote control in its stead. This one controls 85% of of everything. I guess you can have your cake and a little bite
    Customer service is great. I emailed back and forth over the span of 3 weeks until I was satisfied with the unit.
    Would I purchase this unit again? Maybe so. I like it. But I want to love it. Maybe after I finally install my 360 cameras, I will love it. Fingers crossed..
