Buyer beware, this will NOT stream via bluetooth

  • Summary: At first I was very pleased with this product. However, feel very mislead. The unit works great as a hands-free bluetooth for your smartphone, but it DOES NOT supper A2DP music streaming. You could buy the Bt700 with the add-on bluetooth device and have both bluetooth calling and streaming. So, selling this as the "deluxe" version with built-in bluetooth is (in my opinion) deceptive.

  • Summary: I listen to audible books and this is very hard to operate when driving down the road. I cannot back the file without often times going back to the begining. and the way you switch from usb to tuner is dangerous. coulkd be easier.

Great product, would recommend it to a friend

  • Summary: I bought this product to use mainly my ipod as my player, and it hooks up easily and plays the tracks clearly and the name of tracks are clear, it also shows the artist album cover on the screen which is very nice and clear, I have not used the internal memory to download stuff on it. I have watched a video on the screen and it was very clear, little small but does a good job and the resolution is obvious. The sound quality is amazing and crystal clear.

The Kenwood KIV-BT900 is great

  • Summary: I bought this product to replace my stock stereo on an 96 Audi A4. The fact that I could choose the stereos illumination color was great. I could match the color on the stereo with the color on my dash. It has built in iPod controls and also works with the Microsoft Zune. It has no CD drive but with an iPod or Zune, who needs CDs any more.The one draw back of the stereo is that it has no removable face plate.

Album artwork slows down performance, even if you customize it so that album artwork doesn't appear.

Duncan, Amazon

  • Summary: Cons: When browsing your iPod library, things load a bit slowly, but it's not really a dealbreaker or anything. However, once you've picked a song, and you want to skip to the next song using the buttons on the sides of the clickwheel setup, unless you're skipping through songs very rapidly (clickclickclickclick), the unit refuses to skip to the next song until the album artwork has loaded.

If I find another at a great price, I will be buying it to go in my Audi!

qm2usa, Ebay

  • Summary: This is my first experience with something that is purely a media player. I.E. no cd options here. But I love it. It works great with my Ipod and Sirius radio. It sounds great and is easy to operate. In the next few weeks, I will be installing more speakers and amps. With the radio already in place, it won't be much more than plug and play. The connectivity with my phone was simple. Though I do need to experiment a little more with the microphone. Overall, no complaints.

Take a pass

Dave B., Amazon

  • Summary: When the installer first showed me this unit after he put it in - I was pretty thrilled. It was my first bluetooth-through-stereo, and it worked great with my iPhone 4. Good sound quality (both ways), shows me who's calling right there on the screen; easy to make calls and answer them . But then I tried to use the everyday functions, and the whole good feeling went south. There's multiple menu clicks (requiring more than one button) for almost everything.
