Summary: this is a great upgrade over stock.highs! are power and very simple to use and operate. lows! are there are more high tech units.this is old school. but it works.other choice is xg 700.almost identical. but has blue lights on top of red.instead of all red like xg 500.
Summary: The signal is horrible, I dont get some of the stations I was able to tune into on my factory radio. Im sending this product back. This is the email I sent to the company. This past weekend I had a shop install the car stereo system that I recently purchased from you. This system does not work properly. The JVC KW-XG500 unexpectedly pauses for no reason. I'm not sure why this problem happens.
Summary: Bought the radio to install in a car that i was rebuilding..that was the main reason it was purchased. It fit perfectly and was easy to install, it also sounds great and I am very happy with this purchase,
Summary: BLUE TOOTH,ABLE TO TALK HANDS FREE WHILE I DRIVE PLUG MY PHONE IN TO AUX AND BAMMMMMMMMMM HAVE INTERNET RADIO WITH PANDORA. RADIO HAS ALOT OF POWER TOO. GOT IT HOOKED UP TO A KICKER 1X404 AMP PUSHING 2 12" MTX SUBS, HAVE 2 KICKER DS650 DOOR SPEAKERS AND CLARION 6X9'S
Summary: This is a great stereo that replaced the stock 2din cassette/cd player in our 2002 4runner. It worked out great and I did the install myself with a little reading online. It was a snap. I bought the Metra toyota harness and just crimped it to the JVC harness that attaches to the radio. The stereo itself has a great layout, with large buttons for radio presets as well as a big volume knob.
Summary: Works great! Looks brand new even though it was refurb, i wanted the JVC KW-XG700 but it was $40 more for just the USB port. Plays CDS, MP3s and wma. Auxillary is in the front and u can use a 3.5mm to 3.5mm to hook up any ipod or mp3 player.
Summary: Very nice unit, plays well, great features, I would recommend it to others. However I have an Isuzu and read that no extra tools were needed. I needed an wiring harness and Face plate adapter. This was not a big deal and the parts were easy to get ( Best Buy ) .But still an unplanned pain. Otherwise I'm very happy and glad to have this unit in my car.
