Summary: The kd-bt1 Very sensitive to temp. Skip's Radio stations when cold below approx. 44,6 Fahrenheit. After a 10-20 or so saved phone Paring's. Saving the phone after Paring is no longer possible. Still possible to pair, but need to do so every time the power have ben cut. e.g. turning the ignition.
Pros: Usb with memmory stik works great,Tuner works great when hot.sounds great
Cons: KD-BT1 does not support anny form for firmware opgrade and after 20 pairing there will be problems for further parring. It vil not be kept i the memory. JVC have no solutions on this... When tuner is cold it skips radio channels as it pleases.
Summary: Overall, the KD-BT1 has a great mix of features. The Built-In Bluetooth works fantastically well with my Blackberry Pearl, and with the addition of the KS-PD100 iPod adaptor, I can now play music via my phone, my iPod, or via flash drive. What absolutely boggles my mind, however, is that the radio doesn't support RDS/PTY decoding. (aka the Radio Data System that shows radio station data such as station ID, track and artists names, etc.
Summary: This is my third KD-BT1 (I got one for each car). The major selling point is the bluetooth; it's flawless if you set it up correctly. In my truck and my wife's Sedan the microphone is clipped on the roof; on my sedan it's in a opening in the front of the dashboard. In any spot it works perfectly; the other parties can hear both of us clearly and we can hear them very well.
Pros: Attractive Design, Durable, Easy To Install, Nice Features
Summary: I've been using this radio now for about 9 months. I got it for about $250, and to get full Bluetooth capability and USB support at that price it's hard to complain. However, there are a few things people should be aware of before purchasing. If I were to do it again, I'm not sure I would make the same choice; I would strongly consider spending a little more money and getting something better. Here are my dislikes about this radio: 1) My #1 complaint: Poor USB support.
Summary: This was professionally installed in my husband's Chevy Trailblazer and connected to his Verizon LG "Chocolate" phone. There is frequently an echo which is disruptive to phone conversations. He often chooses to use another cell phone and not use the bluetooth because the echo is so bad.
Summary: The way I see it, this system is worth the price just for the radio/stereo and you get the Bluetooth for free. I bought the KD-BT1 for one of my cars and now I'm buying another one for the other car. Buying another one is the greatest endorsement I can give this radio.
