looks good! how are you liking it? i was watching some vids yesterday on it and it looks like it is a decent bang for the buck. I dont want to fork out the 700$ for the 920 just for the ole ranger.

i love it its amasing i had another pioneer single din headunit which had 5v preamp outs and this only has 4v so i was expected some audio loss but actually it sounds amasing picture is great have a rearview camera hooked up which looks perfect aswell as a wd media harddrive player couldnt be happier will upload some more pics soon

also with this deck you cant fit the trim kit around it and still be able to open the unit so dont try lol i spent like 4-5 hours dremeling the trim down to just give up and cut it up all you need is the left and right side as seen above this is a bad pic but in the truck you cant even tell looks amasing just hot glue the two sides in looks great

also for like 400 for this unit is unbeatable... cant beat the fact that you can add on the gps after for like 200-250 where else can you get a 7in touch screen with gps for under 650... yet alone a pioneer... lol asked my girlfriend for the gps add-on for christmas, lol hopefully she will come threw

wouldnt have helped i ended up moding mine the same way my screen dosnt pop out like yours but the corners are sharp and the trim ring corners are round which made it bow at the top

im thinking about picking this up instead

does your camera have that little display built in or something?

because with mine, idk where to stop. i mainly use it for backing up in dark areas because the camera allows me to see behind me. but my depth perception with it is all fvcked up

I purchased the 120BT and didn’t get the camera but want one and I think the Pioneer doesn’t have the lines and I think that is a good option.

Maybe set up the lines on a switch to turn on and off as needed.

Thanks for the posting, getting me going to get a Camera.

yea it just plugs into the rca camera input and i have it wired to turn on with in reverse i have no need for it on all the time just burns out the camera faster but with the lines on a switch thats actually a really awesome idea i never thought of that all it is to turn them on and off is a jumper coming off a pigtail on the camera one thing i dont like tho is when the lines are off it will still display stop on the bottom looks outta place so i just leave the lines on
