Summary: It is like they didn't test with Android at all. If you turn off your car while playing, then turn it back on, you have to manually reconnect the paired bluetooth device, then you can manually start Pandora on your phone, while starting on phone do a quick: power cycle (off then on) on your stereo, and it will work, but make sure you leave audio for music and phone enabled, or this quick fix fails every time...
Summary: for the price this head unit was a steal has many options bt Pandora built in eq also another 3 band eq sub ready with hpf and lpf filters built in plays very well and is easy to use the functions the blue illumination looks cool at night also has usb port and the small port for your mp3 player over all great stereo
A little dissapointed, not the quality I expected from Alpine
8 May 2013
Summary: PRO: the price, lots of features, looks good Cons: Mine had something broken internal as it was rattling around inside, it gets pretty hot, the volume goes up to 35 but it starts to distort as early as 20, the remote does not give a solid 12v so on some equalizers the led lights will flicker at high volume. Im being kind giving it a 3 star, I really expected more from Alpine.
Summary: Easy to install and it turned my 2005 Pathfinder into an SUV full of features you get on 2013 autos. Bluetooth streaming (no cables) works great from my iPhone and so does the bluetooth phone. Hands free call pickup and talking. Great stuff!
Summary: I purchased this product because I wanted to use the bluetooth program to be hands free on my phone and also to use Pandora on it. Install was easy because I had a Alpine stereo before and just had to pull out the old wire plug and antenna, then place the new one in and plug it back in and put that dash back and that was it! Everything works and was easy to program, did not even need to use the manual.
Summary: I haven't had any issues really. Having all my Spotify music streamed to my stereo is a blessing. For the price and features, it's fantastic. In my S2000 I shut the door so I don't really care that it's outer appearance leaves something to be desired.
