The buttons on this thing are awful and almost unusable. Pioneer built a superb head unit and one of the best in history but the UI is just horrible.

But those gripes aside, the P99 truly is a remarkable piece of equipment. Enough processing power for 99.9% of applications, beautiful build and design, pure sonic goodness and totally noise free but a horrible UI. I'd still recommend one and buy it again if I had to do it all over.

thanks for the info. good to know the unit is not failing. if you want a really bad UI check out some of the other pioneer HUs. I had one where the multifunction control looked like a mini satellite dish- it hardly ever executed the command you were expecting.
i also read where touch screen head units are considered too distracting. sound quality not withstanding i personally would not want a full touch screen UI for a car headunit.
