Customizable Home Screen (change the screen colours / logos to a preset number of deigns...
- the td712 featured this, but the TD601, despite allowing me to customize the logo to my Ford logo (i like this, instead of seeing the xtrons logo - it looks more OEM) appears to have removed it?
Bring up the "Home" screen without stopping DVD playback...
( i could go to the home / source menu with the dvd playing, if i click src on this model the dvd/CD stops, and then i have to wait for the dvd/cd to reload before resuming playback... this takes ages??? - why does it not continue playback, as it does with the radio / bluetooth a2dp?)
PAL system for DVD / SD / USB
This unit does have it, the 712 did???
I like the real buttons... however they do need to be pressed firmly to work...?
i like the fact if i black out the screen it doesnt come back on if i skip the track - my 712 did... this i found annoying... every button press made the screen come on
i like the orange / blue changing light - my dash lights
are orange so blend more OEM...
The reverse gear isnt muting my sound... it does however stop me altering the volume (louder / quieter) when in reverse gear... - something when i asked my seller he said selecting reverse gear would mute the volume... (apparently he was wrong, but im GLAD - it means i dont have to put a "off switch" like i did on my 712 unit...
some improvements.... these can be fixed with a firmware update...???
resolve design consistency...
- on the radio we have a clock in the centre top... it appears no where else??? - i like this feature, as it means i keep my car clock for passengers (i have one on my dashboard, but since i use Bluetooth / SD / DVD its not handy having no clock...) ... you could put a DISP option to show the current system time... i dont care how far into a song i am, i much prefer knowing the current time? and it should most certainly be displayed on the homescreen?
- volume is displayed constantly on the radio... this i understand isnt a good idea for sd/dvd etc due to the video nature... but in bluetooth there is no way to adjust the tone (bass/treble) without using the remote control??? - in DVD we use a tap and tap the vol: to switch between the different options...
im guessing different departments work on the software
and its pieced together at the end... hence the design fluctuations...? (i guess this is the reason for no customisation except blue/orange?
