I bought the Pioneer AVH-3400nex. Fry's had a special for $300. The downside is it blocks my vents with the flip up screen. Has anyone tried to use heat or something to bend down the dash bezel so it doesn't look so bad if you have one of the wood trim ones? I like this radio but man i miss those vents in summer so I have to retract the screen

I run my Quadzilla on my kenwood double din all the time here is a pic of my double din instal with the Quadzilla being displayed.
Also I read very often of people having issues with connection using the Bluetooth and androids. Makes me very glad I went with WiFi and iPhone instead.
I don’t ever have connection issues the most that happens to me (not very often) is when I turn off the truck and I go to turn truck back on my iPads not connected anymore. I just Gota click the home button hit the quad app again n bam it starts updating the peramiters for the tune.

once loaded, the apps is a gauge, youndont have to have it open to have the tune.

Nice how did you do it? I'm thinking of using heat to try to bend my wood grain bezel to help it look less hacked. I have a Pioneer AVH-2440NEX on order and it's a full double din.

It was done by my friend who owned the truck before me, he used plastic filler to re shape the area around the radio and then sanded and painted it with semi goss trim paint.

Of course last tune and power level will be saved in the programmer box under the hood. But regardless if u want to use the app to switch tunes or watch gauges if you need to restart it that’s what has to be done n it will still upload the peramiters everytime just the same. Any way my only point was I run my quad on my deck almost everyday it’s a perfect display of my gauges. Aloha
