Summary: This was a major let-down. Despite having great experiences with Alpine in the past I'm not sure what they were thinking with this receiver. The bluetooth functionality is terrible. It's hard to pair, takes minutes to connect when getting in the car each time, and the display doesn't usually have the correct info on the screen for the track playing. The unit has very few options in terms of EQ, crossovers, display, etc.
Summary: Nothing to say, come as expected, Ive installed it on my Jeep Patriot 2014 Sport, with a vissel (purchased from amazon too), an stereo harness (amazon too), and antenna adaptor (amazon too), all ok :D
Very nice unit. Sound great as you would expect from ...

Summary: Very nice unit. Sounds great as you would expect from Alpine. No regrets. There is a firmware update that will need to be done in order to make the unit show artist name, song name etc when In Bluetooth mode.
Summary: I love Alpine and most of this head unit but, one of the reasons s I got this was for the USB input to listen to audio books. For whatever reason it will not start playing Folder 1, Track 1 as I set it up on my Windows 7 file manager. In fact, I never have a clue where it will start playing. It "says" F1-T1 but it will actually be somewhere in the middle of the file/folder tree. I have set the shuttle up to NOT shuttle but that has no effect on it.
Summary: Can't beat this product for the money! I wanted something that looked somewhat stock but had Bluetooth and iPod hookups. The Bluetooth works excellent and the sound quality is fabulous. I would recommend this thing to anyone without hesitation.
Pros: Great sound quality, great Bluetooth access connections and looks great!
Summary: As a replacement for the OEM radio for my 2007 Ford Explorer sport Trac is is great. Fit perfect and the sound is amazingly clean. I matched it with the Alpine KTP 445A amp and was even better. There are a alot of features and it takes some getting use to but over all great price and Alpine quality.
Pros: Perfect fit. Price and easy installation. Matches well with Alpine KTP 445A and Alpine Speakers.
Summary: I spent a lot of time researching a replacement for the factory radio in my Honda Van. The main reason for replacing the stereo was to get Blue Tooth capability. I have had hands free calling with two previous vehicles and really love it. The Alpine BT works flawlessly! I have had zero problems with making calls or listening to music over the BT. The sound quality is also much improved over the factory unit. I especially like how easy this unit was to set up and use.
Pros: Flawless blue tooth with my iPhone. Easy to set up and use with large buttons. Great sound quality and good power.
Summary: Had the unit installed locally. Relatively easy to use. The only issue I'm having is that the Bluetooth keeps disconnecting when I try to play music from my iPhone. Not sure what to do about this. Other than that, happy with the unit and the sound quality is good.
Pros: good sound quality relatively simple controls
