Cons: It doesn't change backlight colors, Bluetooth will sometimes take a few seconds to find the phone after turning on the car.
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'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.
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.
-handsfree calling with good microphone /sound quality
-excellent and rock-solid blue tooth support
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.Read more ›
