Before I purchased this, I had to rely on a cable to hook up my iphone. Now, I just hook it up using bluetooth, and can even control it from the head unit. This is convenient because the phone never leaves my pocket. Another neat thing about this head unit is that it uses the Voice Control (iphone 4) for the voice dial. Their is no need to save voice names or anything on the head unit. Because of this you can even command which songs you want to play just by saying the band, or album. Improved the quailty of sound in my 2007 Tacoma like you wouldn't believe, even with stock speakers. It's great!

Cons: It doesn't change backlight colors, Bluetooth will sometimes take a few seconds to find the phone after turning on the car.

I just purchased this head unit and I love it. First of all the sound coming from my factory speakers is great, can't wait to upgrade the speakers, should sound spectacular then. I mainly purchased because of the iPhone control and bluetooth hands free calling. This unit gives the option of using the head unit to control the iPod or controlling from the iPod itself, I lie having the option. I used the head unit control for a few days but have switched to iPod control now. The head unit control is good, but being used to the iPod controls, I prefer using them. The unit also has the ability to pair to 3 different bluetooth devices, so my wife is able to pair her phone for hands free calling when driving my car. A front 3.5 mm aux input also allows for easy connection of other devices. Finally, the unit allows connection of a usb drive. I tried this and it worked great. Loaded several mp3 files on my usb drive and was able to work through the directories and listen to music.
The one thing I find a bit annoying is that it is sometimes slow to reconnect the iPhone over bluetooth after turning the car off. You need to let the bluetooth connect BEFORE connecting the iPod cable. If you do not do this, if you make or receive a phone call, when the call is over the head unit looks for audio over bluetooth instead of the iPod input. To correct you need to unplug the usb cable and plug it back in, a minor annoyance, but nonetheless annoying.
Overall, this is a great unit for the price, and the guys a Clackamas Car Toys were a pleasure to work with and as usual took care of me.

I chose this head unit for the Bluetooth with audio streaming capability.
I'm very happy with it, the phone calls are also clear on both ends. It's solid, well laid out buttons are easy to navigate.
The only downside to this unit might be if you really need more than one set of RCA connections in the back.
This is the best unit around this price point with these features IMO.

Just got off the phone with Alpine tech department. Told me that there working on a firmware update to address this issue but until then I have to give this head unit a one star. iPhone 5 (ios 6.0.1) will pair with the head unit but you cannot hear any audio, same thing through USB connection.

Unit was working fine until the iphone ios6 update. After many months of putting up with substandard operation between the iphone and the CDE-133, I finally tried to apply the update. This update requires bluetooth to upgrade the bluetooth. Anyone see a problem here?
Wasn't filled with confidence when Alpine has a second upgrade procedure for when the first one doesn't work.
Something went wrong with the update and now bluetooth does not work at all!!
Help files and Faq's are very poor on Alpine's website. Consequently I am now have a unit that can't fulfill the function for which I bought it.
Stay away from this unit if you have an iPhone.

I bought this unit after extensive searching. My requirements were:
-handsfree calling with good microphone /sound quality
-excellent and rock-solid blue tooth support
-good sound
-Under $150

I've had it for about 6 months now.

Initial setup of bluetooth with my iphone 4 was AWFUL. I (as usual) was in a hurry and couldn't find the instructions, so I just mucked around in the UI. Eventually I got it to connect with my iphone. I was pleasantly surprised that the forwards/reverse/pause/play actually control my iphone which was awesome as I often listen to stitcher & pandora and when my 5 year old asks questions, I can pause it without digging through the iphone UI.

I started noticing a problem where 10% of the time when I started my car, it would not connect. This was with a 5.1.x IOS version. It worked great for several weeks, but then started having an issue. When I used the IOS interface to try and reconnect, it would spin and not connect. The only solution to this was to power down the unit and restart it. Since there seems to be no way to do this on the unit (no complete 'off' switch on the unit), it resulted in me turning off my car (often while driving) which would fix it. However, this is not the safest thing to do and I really didn't like it (but in many cases, i wasn't going to do a 1+hr trip without my preferred audio!).

After upgrading to IOS6.x the connection issue seems to have gotten a lot better (say 1/20 times), and when they happy, asking the phone to reconnect seems to resolve it) - but now the controls on the front face of the unit no longer seem to control the iphone, so I'm back to fumbling with the iphone everytime I want to skip forward and backwards.
