Awesome! Exactly as described. 2 way control, Bluetooth, charges iPod, outstanding FM radio, sweet colors, and everything you could want. Sound quality through Bluetooth is excellent. Cannot tell the difference when I plug it in. Only downside is I have to manually pair my iPod every time. I haven't figured out how to make it auto connect when I get in the car. It auto connects to cell phones though. Overall, EXCELLENT VALUE AND GREAT BUY!

Just what I needed, great price too. Love the custom color feature. Love the USB ports, both will charge my iPhone 5. The bluetooth is cool, but it's unfortunate that it takes up one of the USB ports, and it doesn't fit flush in the front port. The bluetooth also did not recognize audio files from the official Apple Podcasts app, but that app sucks anyway so I deleted it; loading my podcasts from the Music app works perfectly. If you have a lot of music/podcasts by different artists, etc, I find it slightly clunky to navigate to what you want to listen too. If you want to constantly change what you are listening to it would be a pain. Also I could be wrong, since I don't listen to the radio much, but this has no dedicated radio preset buttons, they may be hidden in a menu, or there might not be an option for them?

I've had this unit for 11 months now, and up until now I thought it was great. yeah I had problem with Bluetooth connecting after turning off the ignition and getting back into the car, but I just shrugged it off. Tonight is when I blew my lid. I spent several hours wiring an Rockford Fosgate 300.1 amp to run two Rockford Fosgate P1 subs. after I get everything all buttoned up and put back together I fire up the car. Amp light turns on (Great) nothing smoking or shorting out (great) now lets turn on the subwoofer in the head unit. turns out the RCA outputs either Don't work, or I have a faulty unit. after Googling the issue I found a thread over on Crutchfield dot com regarding this unit. it would appear this is a known issue and JVC cares not to make it right. I tried a second set of RCA Cables, I busted out my volt meter and tested the cables and rca jacks seems I couldn't get a voltage reading out of the RCA jacks.

I looked into returning for warranty, but Amazon will only issue partial credit for this unit. I wish I would have bought elsewhere from a shop with a reputable warranty clause.

if you just want a bluetooth unit and care not of hooking up amps then this unit should work well for you. Should you want to hook up an extra amp be warned the odds are stacked against you.

The bluetooth integration on this with my Android 2.3.6 phone has been great. Connects automatically within about 10 seconds, whereas my previous Sony MEX-BT3800U head unit (which eventually crapped out a month out of the warranty period) took about a minute. The only issue I've had is that it won't connect automatically if media only is selected in the phone's bluetooth options; both phone and media have to be selected for it to work automatically. JVC says this head unit supports the AVRCP 1.3/1.4 protocol, but apparently android didn't start supporting this until version 4 (Ice Cream Sandwich) so I don't get artist/track info, but the fwd/back and play/pause buttons work fine. The display looks great and has very good range of brightness and color adjustability from completely dark to very bright. Also unlike the sony, this head unit uses the dimmer wire so it knows when you've turned your headlights on and can switch to another display color and brightness. Since it doesn't have a CD player, there is more room for the display so the menus and text look nice and are easy to use. Finally, the equalizer is very highly adjustable - a big help when the cheap sony xplod speakers I bought turned out to be very nonlinear and needed big corrections at specific frequencies.

TL;DR: sony stuff sucks, get this head unit instead.

it takes so long to connect a smart phone to the stereo thru bluetooth. it takes about 30 seconds to connect. so say you're listening to pandora on the phone and you get in your car and turn it on. It will take about 30 seconds to connect to the stereo so you can listen to pandora thru your car speakers. to me it seems too long and i also have one of the latest smartphones.

This unit is great for the price! I only give it 4 stars because of the actual bulkiness of the wires. First and foremost read the booklet! The menu operation is a bit annoying when trying to get to various sublevels. The bluetooth dongle is removable, the remote lack certain controls as compared with other care stereo makers. No controls for the submenus like Pioneer remotes do. The stereo has good call quality and the external mic works good, better than Dual xdma6540 bluetooth car stereo. The sound can be adjusted with 3way EQ with frequency curve controls. The Pandora controls are great this allows the unit to be controlled from the stereo via remote also. The radio features source level adjustment so you can tweek each source to match various sounds but it doesnt feature auto leveling of the volume when the unit is turned off. JVC has an app that you can use with the stereos but I tried it and its a good app. If you get this unit and have a vehicle with steering wheel controls this unit can be used to control those features via a aftermarket module such as a PAC SWI-JACK. Overall great radio with great sound and price!
