Summary: I bought this to replace the older Sony player in my older Lotus that didn't have certain functions one absolutely needs in the modern world (the Sony that is...not the Lotus). These functions include Bluetooth and USB connectivity. If you are a fan of stuff like internet radio, having your smart phone blast something like Radio Caroline right through the entertainment system is one of life's simple joys.
Summary: I gotta say I love this headunit it GREATLY improved my speakers and I am now able to add some subs. It gave my speakers some more power, which the stock unit couldn't push. Bluetooth works great, but my phone is crap so it does get a little laggy. But then again, it is my phone, and I have used other phones and they run without a problem. I have samsung gravity smart (very old).
Summary: I like the fact that it's a simple single DIN radio that fits into the place of my old one, but has all the features of larger double DIN radios. Everything works well and I love the added advanced Bluetooth features that allow me to talk or play music for those times when I don't feel like plugging my iPhone into the cradle. Very, Very nice Alpine!
Summary: Me and a friend wired this up into a little 91 Nissan pickup along with some 6.5 inch Polk audio coaxial speakers. Setup works nice, use blue tooth with a Galaxy Nexus phone. Usb to charge. Does calls and everything perfectly. Great piece to have.
Summary: Great for iPhone! It has Bluetooth, USB, auxiliary, and cd. The USB charges ur phone while listening to the iPhone. No need to get more expensive version with pandora on it because if u have the pandora app on your phone just plug it in with USB cord. Bluetooth sounds great on both ends as well. Such a cheap radio for all it's capabilities!
Summary: well, this item is a very good product but the FM fonction troubles me: I can't select stations ended with pairs numbers (96.6, 100.2, 104.6, etc..) I only can select stations ended with impairs numbers.. exemple: my favorite station in my area is 96.6 with the Alpine, I can't have it I have 96.5 or 96.7 someone could help me?
