yeah its touch screen. i would like a double din one where the screen is always showing, but those are a bit out of my comfortable price range. maybe next time though.

I just wouldn't be able to stand it being in the way of my vents, that would drive me bonkers.

that wont bug me too much, the air is still gonna get to you one way or another. and im going to use my current mounting kit. and it mounts the radio on the bottom portion of the opening, so when the screen flips up, it shouldnt block them all the way.

not to be a dick... but you wasted your money. you could have spent a little more and got a nice pioneer or alpine. i've been through a jensen, two duals, and i finally saved the money and got a nice pioneer. hope you got a warranty.

I wasnt trying to bag on you man. I had a couple jensen subs a year ago. they were OK but thats it. They just a cheaper company all around hence why there sold in targets. Iv never seen there upper end stuff so hell it could be amazing for all I know. Post back with some pictures and how its working out for you.

From what I've seen Jensen sort of has 2 levels of stuff. They have cheap walmart stuff that is junk then they have nicer stuff that cost a little more.
