Summary: At first I was very happy, it worked well, then Apple lunched IOS 5 and goodbye bluetooth connectivity, no calls, no music, nothing. The forum at apple only shows angry post and clarion, well, doesn't have a forum, twitter account, online customer service or anything similar.
Summary: A warning to anyone looking to buy this product and has an iPhone 4 or 4S on iOS 5, the bluetooth will not work!!! Many Clarion FZ709 owners like me were happy using their iPhones via bluetooth, until they upgraded their iPhones to iOS 5 (or bought a new iPhone 4S).
Summary: So after reading up on this head unit it sounded like it was going to be amazing... it was inexpensive and everything i wanted. the day i got it i installed it (which was very easy everythings color coordinated blah blah) after installing it all and being happy with it all i turned it on and it...
Summary: The FZ709 does a few things amazingly well, but stumbles so hard in some areas it's hard to forgive it. ***Update at Bottom*** What it does well: A2DP Bluetooth - Flawless. Pandora from my Android phone has never sounded better.
Summary: Hi , I had this radio for 3 days only but I just love it , it is exactely what I was looking for. No Cd player , I don't use CD's anymore and especially in the car. This unit paired perfecty with the iphone 4 for telephone and audio using bluetooth connection , no issue , the sound is clear with...
Summary: The Bluetooth support on the FZ709 is great. I was easily able to stream audio from my Droid Incredible. It worked great for phone calls too. It sounds like you've got the phone up to your face, i.e. not like you're talking on a speakerphone. The touch screen is a bit hard to use.
Summary: I have had this head unit now for two days now and I could not be happier with it. Synced right up with my HTC EVO and was streaming music from my Xiia radio app right away. The microphone seems to work very well. My caller had no problem hearing me with my inside voice.
Summary: UPDATE 2: If you own an Apple product, iOS 5 breaks bluetooth compatibility with this unit. Apple hasn't fixed it and the unit is not firmware upgradable. UPDATE: After using this for a week I had to lower my review by a star.
