Summary: I have this stereo in my Jeep right now and for the most part it's awesome. I love having the USB port to charge my phone while listening to Pandora. Unfortunately (I think might be the Apps fault) this unit will not recognize Pandora unless I turn off Pandora mode! It will still play Pandora but the little thumbs up/down buttons are rendered useless. Either way 90% of this unit is awesome and even with that problem I'm still glad I have it.
Summary: Well, since I am an engineer, I took my time, read the manual, made sure all the connections were correct, hooked it up and it lit up and worked - for the first 2 times. After that, no power on. Checked all connections, made sure power was to the connection plug, and still no joy. Since there is and was a lot of time and effort involved in the install, to have it fail after 2 power on tries is more than a bit frustrating.
Summary: Had this headunit for about 2 months workes perfectly fine and then hooked up a amp and system . It worked all fine and sounds great for a couple of weeks then one day the subs were making a wierd noise so the outputs for the sub dont work anymore and im very dissapointed I checked everything and it ended up being the sub output . Other then that it works fine but I wish the outputs still worked cause I like bass and bumping my music .
Summary: Excellent AM broadcast band performance (who cares about FM, but it works well, too). Good sensitivity and selectivity over the entire AM band and almost no problem with overload from local high power stations unlike the stock Honda radio it replaced. It is light years better than a Sony that I first tired as a replacement radio! Would be nice to have rear AUX inputs in addition to the front but I can live without.
Summary: This device syncs with my Ipod and charged it with the USB connection. Pandora could work nicer if I could figure out how to change the station from either the phone or JVC receiver when it's in Pandora mode.
Summary: I love this head unit. The sound setting can adapt well to any setup. Once you have it set, the sound is great. It also has good power. I run 4 speakers off the head unit alone, and a single sub with amp from the line out. I don't care about the blue tooth feature or changing the display when I turn on the lights, so I simply didn't hook them up. The directions were clear and helpful for settings, but not so straight forward for connections.
