I have only had the camera installed for a couple of days but I have to tell you that I really do like the quality of the picture. Very good, clear quality and I find the placement to be spot on. The night picture is a bit grainy but it works well. I cannot comment on the waterproof aspects yet as it has only rained once since it has been installed. But for under $20 delivered you cannot go wrong. As far as the distance grid, I am not sure but I think it is part of the camera.
I am mostly happy with the AVH-2400BT. I have an Android phone which it pairs to nicely for phone and audio. However, not all the audio controls work as it is not 100% compatible. I also wish there would be a better interface for switching the radio presets and there is a lag when the phone book loads. With all that being said, the bluetooth sound quality is excellent for both audio and phone. no one ever has a problem hearing me and that is HUGE for me.
It is hard to determine if I would buy the radio again over another one. I do like the audio quality which is a plus. The interface is "ok" but not spectacular. But how can you test out these features before hand unless you see something in a store you can play with first.
Let us know what you decide.
Ah, a bob & doug fan, good times
I would guess you've not morphed into a HipHop or Beiber follower?
I'm in on the AVH-P2400BT, courtesy of the recent shopping madness. I'm in the process of getting a BU camera so the install can begins.
From all the research, it seems CCD camera provides a better good light pictures but grainy low light images when you needed it most. I'm torn between getting a CCD or CMOS camera with infrared LED. My option is also somewhat limited as I have the model with no spare wheel hanging out the back. Highlander BU camera is what I needed but potentially fitment issues can happen. For these considerations I only want to cry once getting this PITA camera installed.
From the the reviews, the AVH-P2400BT is pretty much iPhone dedicated in its BT & cable interface supports. I've both Android & iPhone so it's good to hear from your Android experiences. I supposed I could've gotten a higher/newer model but this unit should serves my modest needs. I'm no audiophile
. I will keep my expectation in check until the unit is actually install & working.
Apparently there is a firmware update in the work to fix iOS6 BT issues, and hopefully Pioneer takes the opportunity to add robust Android support as well. We can only hope . . .
Thanks, and feel free adding suggestions or opinions on the CCD/CMOS BU camera choice.
