Touchy volume button

Bradley G Beland, Amazon
16 March 2014
  • Summary: Radio came packaged well and prompt delivery. I really like the radio, and have nothing bad to say. Just two observations. The volume knob has a dual function, twist to adjust volume, press to go into find mode. I constantly hit the button by accident when trying to adjust the volume. I do drive a 4x4 truck, so it's partially because of the rough ride. I'm sure I'll get used to it, and develop the right touch. Secondly, the button to switch radio bands is kind of small.

Pretty good stereo

Mr. Nate, Amazon
24 January 2014
  • Summary: I purchased and installed this unit myself. I've been using it over the past year mainly to connect via Bluetooth to my phone so I can play music during my commute. Installation was a breeze (as much as it can be with wiring and such!). Probably my only, only complaint about the unit is intermittently it'll have a difficult time detecting Bluetooth devices. When this happens I have to cycle through all the source options and re-connect the bluetooth.

Alright unit for the price.

  • Summary: Overall I am happy with this head unit. I do have a few minor complaints however. First being the ipod control. After I installed it I spent about an hour trying to figure out how to switch the control to the ipod not the scrollview on the unit, which kind of sucks due to the single line text. After trying my girlfriends ipod i discovered the control mode only works on newer ipods. Second complaint is that it is missing a couple minor features listed on alpines website.

Great stereo once you have done the update.

Andrew Lackey, Amazon

  • Summary: This stereo is great, very easy to use, and everything you need for a great price. Had some minor trouble with the Bluetooth straight out of the box, but was able to fix everything once I updated the stereo. The update can be a little tricky and you need to have a laptop with Bluetooth, but other than that it works great.

Good unit for a decent price

Mike E, Amazon
7 April 2013
  • Summary: Got it installed and Bluetooth immediately synched up to my Nexus S running Android 4.1.1 I did experience intermittent connectivity issues via Bluetooth audio streaming, but after reading online, I was able to upgrade to the latest firmware provided by Alpine. Since doing so, my phone has connected flawlessly. Other than that, this unit functions as intended. It's a great unit for it's price range.

Love the auto answer feature!

  • Summary: Only semi-problem I had was today when I realized I had this receiver installed this year.So clueless to how to change the clock settings. Getting ready for the upcoming time change this weekend and no recall of how to change the time. Still waking up and not wanting to look for the manual. Found easily online the PDF manual, printing out only the clock instruction page. Suggest everyone at least have a copy in their glove compartment of the clock instructions!

Some high tech audio in my low tech auto

Mathieu J. Champagne, Amazon
3 May 2012
  • Summary: I live in Philadelphia, and one night my car was broken into and some things were stolen. The thief took the faceplate of my old Pioneer head unit...just the faceplate. I found some of the faceplates online for around $100, so I figured why not upgrade and get something newer and better. I was very pleased with the price of this head unit,a nd I had a friend of mine help me install it in my older Rav4.
