Summary: Best upgrade to my old car I have done. The only issue was that it sounded so nice I blew out my front speakers on a long road trip. I love the built in bluetooth connectivity. The sound control is fantastic and some cd's sound like a concert hall. Tons of options that I am still discovering after years of having it.
Summary: I paid $300 for this unit in July of 2010 and it slowly lost functionality over the next 3 years. LEDs failed, the sound started buzzing, and finally the unit failed in July of 2013. That works out to $100 per year. I cannot recommend this product, especially since its warranty is only 1 year.
Summary: I have had this unit for over a year now; and in the last six months, the bluetooth is driving me crazy. I thought it was my android phone causing the problem, but the malfunction also accured with my iPad. The bluetooth connects fine and I can initiate music play; but, intermittently (always when the song is changing - either by user input or after the previous song has finished) the bluetooth connection fails.
Amazing value for an easy-to-use, great sounding deck.

Summary: I purchased this stereo to replace my damaged original deck. I love it. Not only has it great features & sound (with my OEM speakers),but it's easy to use and looks like it came with the car. The display color is adjustable and matches perfectly with the rest of the instruments on the dash. The presets are easy to see and use. The only negative is that the digital clock loses a copy minutes every month but it's easy to adjust.
Summary: i use to have an indash but i realized i didn't even watch dvd's on it, i only really showed it off! but this jcv is practical colorful and the quality is very damn good considering the fact that i got it for $183 with free two day shipping! it has Bluetooth that lets you control a long list of things on your cellphone and stereo, if you have an iphone and like SOUNDCLOUD then it will let you now what song is playing as if it were an app for pandora!
