I had this unit professionally installed, as it was relatively complicated. I also upgrades speakers and Amps at the same time. I’ve had this system since Feb, so this is 7-month update.
Next after you install this, you need to update the software to the newest version (1.210-released in mar2013). It updates Bluetooth compatibility to iPhone5
The unit totally boots up in under 12 seconds. Music is playing w/in 3.
My immediate impression is how many listening options this unit provides. Terrestrial and satellite radio, HD stations. Bluetooth streaming, Pandora, iPod. Memory sticks, DVDs. Overwhelming choices. One thing that stands out w/ this unit is the sound quality. Music just comes alive w/ alot of sound shaping options to help you prefect the soundstage, and your listening preferences, but if you're a total novice. You can get good sound by pressing the defaults, or using the setup guide when you press the favorites button.
The navigation works well, its not as intuitive as a Garmin, but it always gets me to the places I enter. Again, I had to update the map to the newest version, as the preloaded map didn't even have my housing development on it (new map updates cost $ 50-100).
I like the overall simplicity of the system, and the fact that it will stream any music source off my iphone via bluetooth
As other reviewers have commented- the interface is slower than your cell phone. Its faster than many other aftermarket HU, but button pressing responses are a sec or two. Next, the look of the interface needs some updating. There is a lot of unused landscape on certain screens, with buttons much too small (phone dial/hangup for instance, are half a postage stamp size).
The Favorites section is not well thought out, and needs utility. An example. If you store a phone number in favorites and hit it- you’d hope it would directly call. It doesn't, it brings you to the phone screen- then you have to hit dial. You also limited to what you can store as a favorite. I hoped I could immediately link to my EQ section, as I like to change EQ setting based on music type. You cant.
The navigation frequently requires 2 or 3 deep menus to perform tasks. Also I found that once I turned off “economy mode” that my GPS made better decisions about routes, and frequently took me on routes that I normally would have taken -that were the most direct. With Economy mode on, it would try to get me to whatever highway was closest, regardless if it was more direct.
The volume knob. I notice that turning the volume up 15 doesn't really increase the volume all that much but from 17-34- wow its gets loud. Also pressing the knob once mutes the volume about 10 clicks. So it's a mild mute.
Overall, this is a real solid unit. Its not a cell phone, but it does what it needs to do - play music and provide numerous listening options. Compared to my OEM equipment this sounds better, and so far it’s been worth the upgrade. I’m hoping there will be a few more updates from Alpine, but, I’m not holding my breathe.

Clean outputs .the navigation leaves a little bit to be desired, but does get the job done
