Awesome!!!

  • Summary: Great car stereo for those of us who are unwilling to spend $1000+ for quality Alpine sound. Looks good and has all the features you need. Highly recommended.

A Low-end System With High-End Appeal

The One and Only, Amazon
25 July 2013
  • Summary: BACKGROUND I bought this unit after my IVA-W200 started experiencing issues. I wanted to upgrade to a unit capable of BT audio and USB as well as keep DVD capabilities for my music videos. I didn't require built-in navigation (I use the app on my phone for that purpose). FEATURES "What I like" BOOT TIME It boots quickly regardless of media. It boots as quickly with Disc as it does with radio. USB is a tad bit slower but it's not a deal breaker.

  • Summary: I have been a fan of alpine recovers ever since I bought my first CD player back in 03 and the IVE-W530 reminded me why I have not purchased another brand since.
  • Pros: Super clean loud sound, tons of expand ability options, and crystal clear screen
  • Cons: No remote

  • Summary: System is great but is not plug and plug even with a harness. You will have to go sift though wiring and find your parking break and foot brake wiring, if you don't you will basically have a 50 dollar stereo that only plays radio and Bluetooth, settings will be disabled so you won't even be able to turn on a backup cam or get into basic settings.
  • Pros: fast boot up, nice feature set, good BT. DVD works great and USB reads and plays nicely
  • Cons: Severly crippled by default without parking brake and foot brake wiring. Reads USB Memory a bit slow.

great product

  • Summary: This is a excellent head unit it works with the Alpine NVE m300 navigation unit the only thing I don't like is that Alpine doesn't use the loudness button any more so you have to crank the volume up to at least 20 in order to get you subs to bump really loud other than that its a excellent unit easy to use and allows you to have the gps with out buying the more expensive unit.
  • Pros: easy to use work with Alpine NVE m300 navigation module
  • Cons: doesn't have the loudness button

  • Summary: Bought this to put an Alpine screen in the rear. Works excellent. I really like that I can shut the front screen off and just play it in back. Very nice Ipod functionality and on screen phone display. I plan on adding a Clarion rear view camera.
  • Pros: Nice display. Screen blackout function. Interfaces with everything. Recognizes my phone everytime i enter. Expandability for amps in the future. Excellent picture
  • Cons: Bluetooth phone quality needs improvement. I am going to try one of the new Parrot double mics. People say it sounds like its breaking up.
