Reviewer: k-joke from United StatesModel:GA5153
To those who are asking about buying this unit. I upgraded my stock RN510 mainly because it did not have navigation and I just hated the way the RN510 functioned with USB and SD cards. The GA5153 is great for the price, I love that it fits perfectly in the stock dashboard with no modifications and the ability to modify it in the ways you like is great.
1) Fits perfect in the stock dashboard and looks great.
2) you can add programs to your liking
3) sounds better then my stock unit.
4) easy install (if you are not installing the rear camera)

Going on 2 weeks now. I've played with just about everything I care about with this unit.
I use Waze and MapFactor for gps. MapFactor for offline navi.
I'm in Hawaii and everything is pretty strong will probably change in 7 months when I move back to the mainland. I mostly listen to MP3s anyway.
No problems connected for music or phone calls. I saw some comments about the mic. I use this everyday and everyone I talked with can hear me clearly.
I use MX Player and it works great. DVD is as expected.
No issues with audio. When the volume is 0. I can hear the faint wifi buzz when using wifi. it's very faint. Volume on 1, I can not hear it.
I pretty much purchased this unit because of the of these 2 capabilities. I am not disappointed. Basically it's a tablet for your car.
Works with the lights as it's suppose to. Love the custom color option. No flickering noted. I even have an amp, two 12in woofers and a cap in the trunk. I guess the screen brightness would bother people at night. I have no issues with it. I don't know if it has a auto feature but the app screen lock will turn off your screen.
Don't really care about this feature sense, as I pointed out earlier, the unit is a tablet for your car. I did attempt to get this to work, but I was not successful. I did not put 100% effort into this. Most states have laws were you are not allowed to be holding an electronic device while driving, so I don't need this feature.
Steering Wheel Controls
No issues. Works the same as my D5150 did. The call button does not work as it did for factory unit. This was not a deal breaker for me.
