Nice unit, lots of features, good sound

I bought this to replace a bad head unit in my daughters 01 Elantra. Installed it myself without using a harness. Took me about 2 hours in total. Price was fair, unit is very nicely equipped with many features and the sound is pretty good for 20 watts-rms. Bluetooth paired in seconds and hands-free calling was pretty good. My daughter thinks I'm the greatest Dad ever! Worthwhile purchase for a fair price.

Great deck

Love that this deck does not have a CD player - don't know why this impresses me!? I installed this in my Ram 1500 and it looks and sound incredible. I like that I play my music through my Bluetooth iTouch but it also syncs my phone at the same time. They do need to work on the Volume buttons on the remote - way too small. Would definitely recommend this - the price was definitely right.

I like it

Install it on my Nissan and test it today. I like it. Bluetooth worked perfectly with my android phone, both phone call and music play. Good sound quality. Very convenient. I bought a dash installation kit for Nissan and Stereo wiring kit for Nissan ($30 in total). There are some soldering works to do. No an easy process, but not hard as well. Pro: Bluetooth works perfectly; good sound quality; easy operation; remote controller Con: Bluetooth is not build-in, but an usb-bluetooth dongle (included in the package), and it will take up one of the use port; Mic is external, needs to be connected to the stereo from the rear and be wired in the car to your wheel. It is hard to do it in a beautiful way

Great first unit but...

Installed in my 01 Corolla, sad the finish trim does not fit so kind of looks like its placed in its spot. Bluetooth takes about 20-40 seconds to find my iPhone 4. Don't like how it looses connection when my car is in aux power and when I start my car (maybe I can put some sort of capacitor to keep a charge for the 10 seconds?). USB control works great although wish I could do the same over Bluetooth (playlists, folders, etc). Also wish the clock was displayed when showing the album/artist info. Confusing when I have 2 phones connected via Bluetooth and want to switch music from one to the other. All in all pretty good deck, like the way it looks and performs. Great first non stock deck and will be in there till the car dies!

Great product great price

I had heard some pretty bad reviews about this deck concerning the pre out for subwoofer, and i have not had any problems with it..i am using a 10' in the trunk and it hits hard. I had a pioneer premiere previously and this one may not have as many audio settings but sounds crisper than the pioneer and cost a fraction of the price...blutooth works flawlessly placed mic behind steering wheel and ppl on the other line hear me very clearly. love that theres no more cd !! welcome to 2013 do yourself a favor and save money with this one. it does everything you need ..sounds good..looks good..and doesnt hit the wallet

Kind of Frustrating

Played with it for a couple weeks and could not get Bluetooth working properly. Connects and can play music and make calls manually but cannot upload phone book to unit. Took it back to technician and he said some phones just won't work with that deck. Am using an HTC Evo 3D. The deck seems like a great unit and has received GREAT reviews and I am sure for some it is a great buy but I find it is very frustrating. Does not perform the way I had hoped.

Worth every buck!!! Hot buy!!

Great sound !! Bluetooth Audio is very good. Works with all Bluetooth phones, even iPhone 5 and iPad mini!! USB control is amazing also. Works with Iphone 5 and iPad mini as well full features. It even charges iPad mini!!! @ 2.1 Amps supply Bluetooth dongle is placed on USB connection in the rear but could be interchanged and installed in the front. The Bluetooth dongle is very small, similar to the ones that comes with wireless mice. Amazing feature customizing colours to fit with your dashboard.

Great Deck!!

I needed something that would replace my factory deck in my RSX that no longer played CD's and didn't want to spend a lot of money.. I recently got an Iphone 5 and wanted to be able to play my music from it.. at first I was looking at the JVC (KD-X40) but then noticed this one comes with Bluetooth so I went with it. Installed it with no problems ran the mic up to the top of the A pillar.. paired it to my phone.. now I just get into my car and my phone connects automatically, I can listen to my Songza app (song info displays on screen) take handsfree calls and use Siri... makes my old 2002 feel high tech LOL! just a great deck at a great price!

Great Value

Just self installed this unit in my 99 Passat. Unit came with everything you need including the Bluetooth Mic. Really high quality and the bluetooth music streaming is just awesome. I don't miss the CD player at all. Again, this unit is great value for the features is comes with.

time to retire the CD player

i was looking for a deck for my summer vehicle. cd player was just what i assumed i would be buying. i started looking into this deck and it only makes sense. we all have smart phones and ipods and other mp3 players. the new law is you need hands free for your phone. this deck takes care of it all. it is a flawless deck and does everything. displays your song titles and when someone calls, it displays who is calling. will also control two phones via bluetooth. sounds great and looks great. besides dont we all upload our cds to digital format anyways? this just saves time and eliminates the use of carrying cds.
