I agree. It is more frustrating to me than any other I've tried.

Even so, it's probably better than the infotainment system that came in my '83 LS P'up! :D

In my book it isn't. I'd rather have an audio input and power. The pup can easily have that. Ideally I'd like a touchscreen built in and an interface for my device. I can choose the interface, features, etc and evolve it over time. No need to live with a crummy old interface with outdated features.

The P'up no longer has its factory radio. It's been through an Alpine (with the matched 6-disc changer :roll:), a Clarion, and now a Pioneer head unit. I'm really scheming on how to make room for a double DIN unit without destroying the dash.

Never dealt with it. My 09 F250 is a base model, has a cd player and an aux jack, power windows, mirrors and doors, integrated ebc, good enough for me. I don't really care for the big touch screens in the center of the dash and heated cup holders.
