Never Update the Firmware, You will Regret It

Maxime Manuel "M Square", Amazon
1 June 2014
  • Summary: I never seen a car radio like this. It is fantastic. But, I was just trying to update the firmware this morning. I downloaded the right file from their website. It messed up my CDE-133BT and it cannot turn on now. I spent the entire day looking for solutions. It looks like a lot of people are complaining about the same thing. Google it and you will see for yourself. There is nothing you can do with the device once the update fails.

Great Sound But Frequent BT Connection Issues & Bad Phone Mic

Stephen Elliott Carter, Amazon
31 December 2012
  • Summary: I have had this system for a little over a year. Have had two phones with it (Android Bionic running Gingerbread and Android Razr Maxx running Ice Cream Sandwich, ICS). When it works right, I love it. It sounds beautiful and it is fairly easy to operate with little adjustment needed. Though I wish it would assume that the same device is connected on start-up and only go through the connection establishment process when it realizes the connection has been lost.

Great except for Bluetooth Issue

MPICK27, Amazon

  • Summary: I installed this head unit in my truck a few weeks ago. It sounds great, but it has connectivity issues with my Motorola Razr Maxx. It will pair and connect, but after about fifteen seconds it pauses and will not reconnect. It did the same thing with my Samsung Charge phone, so it seems it's a problem with android phones in general. Based on Kenneth S's review I purchased an Alpine CDE-136BT. The 136 works perfectly. Same great sound and solid connectivity.

  • Summary: Just got off the phone with Alpine tech department. Told me that there working on a firmware update to address this issue but until then I have to give this head unit a one star. iPhone 5 (ios 6.0.1) will pair with the head unit but you cannot hear any audio, same thing through USB connection.

4 months, still no firmware

S. Hoffman, Amazon
17 February 2012
  • Summary: Bought this unit in August for iphone, Worked great till iOS upgrade. No frickin' useless and all we get from Alpine is "We are working on it"... How about a frickin' due date at least! Or let us trade in for something that works! EDITED: Firmware came out, but lost allot of the BT functionality that did exist. But ok now.

Grundlegende Funktionen (Radio, CD) gut, neue Funktionen (Bluetooth, USB) mit Problemen

R. Markula, Amazon
29 May 2013
  • Summary: Das Autoradio hat seine Stärken, aber auch (für mich) gravierende Schwächen. PRO: + Ausgezeichnete Klangqualität, starker Verstärker + Guter Radio-Empfang, rasche Kanalumschaltung + Problemlose CD-Wiedergabe ohne Aussetzer CONTRA: - Bluetooth-Verbindung. Ich erwarte, dass wenn ich ins Auto einsteige und das Autoradio anschalte, sich das Autoradio automatisch mit dem Handy verbindet, um die Freisprechfunktion und die BT-Musikfunktion verwenden zu können.

Nicht schlecht aber auch nicht gut!

Alexander Kaspar, Amazon
2 January 2013
  • Summary: Das Autoradio von Alpine überzeugt in der Verarbeitung. Auch die Optik ist ansprechend. Abspielmöglichkeiten (USB,MP3-CD usw) sind top und auch die Einstellmöglichkeiten (Bass, Treb, Fade, usw) können nicht besser sein. Was mich aber stört, ist zum 1. das Telefonieren über Bluetooth.

  • Excerpt: Тем кто любит слушать радио не советую её покупать.
  • Pros: Интуитивно понятное меню. Меняющиеся подсветки. Блютус телефон, чтение с телефона медиафайлов. USB/ Простота установки 10 минут.
  • Cons: Плохо держит частоты радиостанции. Звук плавает и это при движении по МКАД. А если в область поехать?
