Summary: First, the sound quality is good, this is not a bad unit, per se. The main issue is that they advertise Mirror Link as a feature and firmware as upgradeable, however the support is not there. The Mirror Link only works with the Samsung Galaxy S3..a 4 or 5 year old phone...we are now on S6.
Cons: No factory support No Mirror Link for anything newer than a Galaxy S3
Pros: The sound is great and it is very easy to use.
Cons: The only problem is that you have to hook it up to the foot brake and the parking brake to install it. Also, in order to use the setup function, you have to push the brakes several times or it will not work. It doesn't always show the whole name of the song if it's too long.
Summary: I wanted to love this product, but I bought it mostly for the mirror link feature and the ability to use my phone for navigation and the primary music source. Unfortunately, my phone, even though the mirror link site says is compatible with the technology, is not compatible with this unit.
Pros: Lots of audio control, great display
Cons: Major Con- Mirror Link is a technology abandoned by Alpine
Summary: Replaced my factory headunit with this piece... huge improvement in sound. Was very easy to set up, even being my first time doing a headunit install. The unit is easy to use and the touch screen is definitely good quality and responsive.
Pros: Great Sound, Easy to Setup, All the Connections and Outputs You Could Need, Looks Sharp
Cons: User Interface isn't perfect (but you can't really expect it to be)
Summary: I installed this unit in my 2010 F-150 XLT without the 4" lcd display. The listing shows it will not fit, however it does fit with plenty of room behind for wiring. Radio and Bluetooth worked fine, I couldnt get the device to play music saved on my phone via USB.
Pros: Solid sound, good eq customization Physically looks great, nice screen size Call quality and use excellent Bluetooth works well.
Cons: Interface a bit behind. Music via USB didn't work for me. Lack of Manufacturer future support No remote comes with this unit. If you have a phone that was new last 2.5 years, forget mirrorlink
