Cutio never the less are very prompt and accommodating and took it back without issue.

I mounted it at 4 'o clock position on the steering wheel. That is a comfortable position to reach and leaves 10 and 2 o'clock completely unimpeded. Initially I was concerned because there is a slight wobble in the unit when the buttons are pressed. After all, it's attached to the steering wheel with 2 rubber bands! In practice, your fingers brace the unit from the back and that slight wobble is not an issue.
All the important buttons are just under your thumb on top, including next/previous preset/folder, next/previous station/track, band select (FM1/2/3/AM), and source select. Volume up/down buttons are on the back where your fingers naturally fall. Nice ergonomics!
5 stars for price and (eventual) function. Minus 1 star because I had to make a modification to get the performance I wanted.
First, I tried it out without doing any modifications. It worked about 50% of the time if the steering wheel was in neutral position. My windshield wiper and cruise control bars would be in the way of the led.
Then I began the modifications. I tried just drilling out two little holes so the IR's would have no plastic to get into the way. It worked about 60% of the time with this mod.
Then I said screw it. I took a dremel and sawed off the bottom back chunk below the volume buttons to completely expose the diodes. Worked pretty much the same with the holes, 60% success.
I came to the conclusion that the position and wiper/cruise control bars were going to be in the way. I liked the position of the remote too much so the last thing I could do was either get an IR repeater and fit it somewhere on my dash, or de-solder the diodes and attach them to wires. I decided on de-soldering the diodes and attached them to about 8 inch of wires. I placed one diode between 3 and 4 o'clock on the back of the wheel and the other diode at 6 o'clock on the back of the wheel. I taped the diodes and wires down with some black electrical tape along the wheel.
I then sewed on the Lemonbest C0196 Universal Anti Slip Leather Car Steering Wheel Cover on top of it and voila! Now I have basically 100% control as long as my steering wheel doesn't turn 180 degrees and that's perfect for me, it's hard enough to use the remote while turning.
If you plan on getting this, plan on getting creative.
So I checked the reviews again, I had remembered seeing something about this. Seems like quite a few people opened up the case and cut holes for the LEDs, since the black plastic isn't even translucent for the IR LEDs to shine through hardly at all to begin with. So I began opening it up.
Once open, I cut some holes in the bottom for the LEDs using a drill bit. Then I used an X-Acto blade and cut a big rectangle out of the bottom, and lined the inside with aluminum foil where the LEDs are. I also bent the LEDs to point to the right (where the radio is located). You'd think after all this, that it would work from the left of the steering wheel. You'd be wrong.
To get it to work and be on the steering wheel, I had to mount it to the top of the steering wheel instead, with the LEDs pointing to the left. Now it only really works when the wheel is straight (which is OK since it is most of the time), but it also impedes the view of the Speedometer and other gauges. I'm happy it works. But that's about it. It isn't an eyesore, considering you can't really see what I did unless you're looking, but the whole ordeal is a bid ridiculous for $40.
The engineers did a s***ty job with this one, not to mention after seeing how simple the circuitry is, this damn thing shouldn't cost anywhere near $40. If you really wanted to, you could solder new IR LEDs onto the board, and probably get it work alright. In any case, this amount of modifications to a $40 car radio remote for what is expected usage scenarios is downright ridiculous. If you buy one, you will likely have to modify it to get it to work even a little how you wanted, just be aware of that.
However, and this was my mistake for mistaking "audio control" with the actual telephone functions, but this remote does NOT control your Bluetooth connected cell phone (pick up / hang up with the touch of the remote).
After quite a bit of reading I discovered that neither of the models (CD-SR100 & CD-SR11) offered in the Americas (north or south, I live in Mexico...), have the Bluetooth function. The only one that has it is the CD-SR110 but apparently it's only available in Europe...
However thanks to the wonders of technology, I have ordered the CD-SR110 from the UK and it should be arriving soon. I'll update the review if there's anything relevant to add, but for now I thought I'd help others not make the same mistake I did and maybe save some time as well...
Update: I just discovered the CD-SR1 on the Pioneer US site. Strangely enough, it doesn't appear in their own Remote-Controls page but from what I can gather, this is the American equivalent to the European CD-SR110.
Anyone have an idea how to make these part numbers even more confusing? 'Caus I couldn't if I tried...
Update 2: Just to keep you guys up to date, the British CD-SR110 worked fine and now I can control both my phone and the stereo from the steering wheel :-)
Anyway, hope this helps.
Good luck to all :-)
