Summary: I've previously owned JVC products and it's a quality brand. This in-dash car stereo is a nice for the price. I bought it mainly because it was an affordable flip down (which keeps dust from getting into the cd slot, the opposite is true with non-flip down face units), detachable face (security) and was a stereo with an ipod connection. I installed it myself which was not a very hard undertaking. The unit comes with instructions as well.
Summary: The stereo I purchased appeared to be new and worked perfectly. I installed it in a couple of hours with no problems. The stereo actually had more features than I thought. Overall I really like the stereo, and loved the price. I have not found anything that I disliked about the item. I needed a stereo to put in my father's pickup and I was looking through ebay and found this one. It had all the features that I needed (nothing fancy), and it was priced very reasonable.
Summary: I installed this myself in a 2001 Saturn and can't believe I waited so long - my iPod has never been happier! I'm not into HD radio but having both an iPod (Classic 2G) full-service hookup and an aux port for my shuffle is outstanding. If you're looking for serious watts per channel you'll need an amp but the hookup was very strait-forward. The controls to access the iPod are a bit confusing... at first.
Summary: I bought this radio and had it installed about a month ago. So far i have really enjoyed it (but i guess anything is better than the stock receiver) The in-stereo ipod controls are a little hard to get used to, especially if you have a lot of music. I suggest making playlists as that is definitely an easier way to maneuver through your music than trying to access a song through the song, artist, or album menu. I do love that it keeps my ipod charged.
Summary: I had higher expectations for this item. Your Ipod goes in the glove box which has it's pros and cons but you can't change the playlist unless you disconnect the ipod and reconnect it. That makes a problem when you are drivng down the road. All in all the sound is good and much better than an FM device that you use with your Ipod. I wish the remote came with a strape for the steering wheel, so basically the people in the back seat benefit from the remote.
