Summary: The unit was almost perfect at first. After a year of use, the quality of the bluetooth connection has degraded to the point that it is unusable for phone calls and nearly unusable for streaming music from the phone.
Summary: Great alpine double din radio. Has many settings to change on the EQ to tune to your liking. IPod support to control your iPod from the radio, this is my go to music. Phone calls come in great and others can hear you clear.
Summary: Very nice unit, glad that I found it. It went into my 2008 Toyota Tacoma truck via the scosche dash kit. The fit is pretty good. The unit itself has bolt holes that matched the stock radio support plates (3 of the 4 bolts fit per side), so the mounting went very solid.
Summary: I bought this unit because it is essentially the double DIN version of the CDE-143BT that I bought for one of my other cars. My thought was that I wouldn't have to learn another interface by installing this unit.
Other than that this is a great deck Good sound and lots of set up options

Summary: Do your research before doing your own install on 1999 or newer vehicles. With today's advances in automotive technology you will need the correct Wiring harness and interface module. Other than that this is a great deck Good sound and lots of set up options. And you can DIYS.
Summary: Great stereo head unit. I bought it to replace my old Alpine because it had hands free calling. Really good quality hands free and setup was really easy. I would definitely recommend this to a friend.
