I usually allow myself to suffer with "meh" car audio because I hate aftermarket head units so VERY much. When I'm driving, I want to push one button and have it perform its intended function. I don't want to scroll through menus within menus to change the tone settings. I don't need an awesome light show. Factory head units are perfectly basic and work really well, but of course the sound isn't all that great. I drive an '06 Corolla (utterly boring but utterly reliable) and my wife just gave me a new Pioneer head unit for Christmas. I have installed it, and it works, and it sounds instantly better than the factory unit but I have already walked away knowing that someday I will actually get it set up the way I want it, but not today. I just have zero patience for this sort of thing. I pretty much understand how to switch it on and have programmed stations into it (four times), got the colors set "close enough" (210,000 color combinations available! Why?!) and was trying to get the rear speakers to come on because that's how the sub is connected, but that's beyond my comprehension at the moment. I have front audio, so close enough for today. It's also four degrees outside, so that puts a damper on things. I look forward to using the Bluetooth audio and all that, but at the same time I miss the old Alpine two-channel head unit with an analog tuner... that was a long time ago!
