Summary: I have one of these in my 97 Dodge Ram and I also have the CDE 126BT in my 99 Corvette. It does exactly what I want it to do. Plays my Ipod video while hooked to the extra ipod cable, and controls it from the deck. It also works with the usb and aux connection. The sound is great and I have it paired with the Alpine KTP 445 power pack in both vehicles with JBL's in my vette and Pioneers in my truck. It hooks to my cell phone for hands free talking as well.
Summary: I bought this radio to put in my motorcycle. I like it a lot. The sound quality is very good. The only thing I don't like about it is when changing saved channels on the radio that you have to push the button just right or it doesn't change.
Summary: My wife got this for me as a gift based off the features she knew I wanted. Because she wanted it installed as a surprise to me, she went to a "big box" store to shop and purchase. Though it has BlueTooth for hands-free calling, it cannot stream music from the phone. If you want music, you have to buy the KCE-433iV cable to connect to your phone.
Summary: I bought this head unit as the previous owner of my car had wired it for Alpine. I wanted Bluetooth connectivity and having a USB port for charging my iPhone for long road trips with as few wires and different adapters as possible. This head unit boasted everything I wanted and was easy on the bank account. I should have researched passed the list of specifications and questioned their functionality.
Summary: I've bought this product for 41$ on black friday deals week. So I bought 2 of them :) The delivery was great I am very pleased. cde-125bt comes with ALL staff that is needed to install it to your car. Just buy this thing and you'll have great radio and mp3 player in your car.
Summary: I've owned quite a few after market head units and this one ranks toward if not at the top of the list. I removed it from my Jeep before I traded it. I'm looking forward to the next vehicle I'm going to use it in.
Summary: I bought this on impulse because it was a good deal. I should have researched it better. Unit doesn't work with 4g iphone, even with high speed Alpine cable. I am able to listen to songs through aux input only. I bought a cde-122bt for my boat and it works great. This is not a slam at the vendor. I will end up buying the cde-136bt as I already have the wiring harness for Alpine installed.
Summary: Pros: -Bluetooth works well with iPhone 3GS for phone calls. Clarity is great to person on other end of the phone. Voice dial takes many seconds to activate, but then works pretty well; you need to say the whole line in one go, "Call John Smith mobile"; if you leave out "mobile" on the end, you will not be able to then choose from "work, home, or mobile". Once on a call, no problem. -Starts up when vehicle is turned on; defaults to Tuner (radio station).
Summary: After receiving this head unit, I noticed that Alpine had another one out that allowed for music over BT, and I wish I would have seen that before purchasing this one as it will not allow for that feature, calls only via BT. Still a great unit and it's still in my car, but my next one will definitely have more features and abilities.

Summary: I have always liked Alpine car stereos so I was very disappointed when I realized that after installing this radio, it was not fully compatible with my Bluetooth phone. I was able to use it for making calls. However, I was not able to use the Bluetooth to play any of the media on my phone.
