Will not work with an old iPod shuffle I had but works great with an old iPhone I downloaded my music onto and leave in the glove box connected to this system. You can plug your current iPhone into it, but it would lose my place on my playlist every time, plus I got tired of hooking/unhooking my phone and taking it in/out of the glove box. I do love that the iPod extension cord runs directly into my glove box so no cords hanging off the dashboard area though.
The touch screen/face plate detaches, which is perfect since I drive a convertible. The bass boost and dynamic settings blew away the original BOSE system!
Has multiple user settings so that my husband and I can each have our own settings, including background screen, equalizer options and radio station settings. Would definitely purchase this product again.
Only thing I would say is play with all the settings while in your driveway, because trying to play with the touch screen while driving, especially a stick shift, can be dangerous!
So here is the story... First off the radio was $60 more when I purchased it just 2 months ago. I paid roughly $280 for it. Second of all as stated by a couple other users there is/was a glitch with this radio and some vehicles. What happens is that once every 1-2 weeks the stereo would just not turn on at all. Turning off the car and turning back on would do nothing and the radio would appear to be dead. I initially thought it was a wiring problem and that I had made a mistake. So I tore apart my dash a good 8-10 times trying to figure out what the problem was. Everytime when I would try the radio again after disconnecting the wiring harness it would start right up but lose all my settings, clock time, radio stations. So everytime this would happen I realized I could just unplug my car battery for a few seconds and then reconnect it and it would restart my stereo. Then after doing some reading on here and Crutchfield I realized that it was a defect with the radio. As one of the other users stated there USED TO BE a patch on JVCs website. No matter how much googling and searching around I could not find the patch. So I decide to call JVC Customer Support and they tell me that I have to mail my receiver to their service repair office in NY at MY EXPENSE and they would not give me the firmware update that was needed to fix my stereo and it had to be updated my a service center. So not only have a spent a huge chunk of time trying to troubleshoot but now they expected me to pay for shipping as well. I escalated the call to a manager and they gave me a free shipping label. Then as I was getting ready to pull my stereo out AGAIN and mail it in I figured I would call JVC again and try to argue my way into getting the firmware emailed to me. Well it took me talking to 3 different JVC reps and about 5 phone calls but they finally did email me the firmware update. I have patched my radio and haven't had the problem since but what a long painful road it was to get a functioning stereo.
A couple other minor things that I ran across are that if you are going to use Bluetooth you have to choose that option the very first time you start your stereo, otherwise you will not be able to find the option to turn it on without power resetting your stereo. Another bug is that if you are reading music from a thumb drive certain files will cause your reader to crash and start with song 1 track 1 of what's on your thumb drive. Meaning that once I get out of my car and get back in the stereo usually remembers what song and position I was on. After adding some m4a music files the stereo started at album 1 song 1 like the first time I used the thumb drive everytime I started my car back up. So I removed the m4a files and now it works fine again.
Let me first by saying the sound is amazing, I will give that 5 stars, besides that, it's a little out dated. The system is kind of slow, there is NO WAY TO USE THE GPS Unless you own an Iphone, which I will never own because apple sucks and they screw their users out of a lot of cool things that dont own their product. So the GPS is useless to me, there is NO SD Card slot. You can use a USB Flash Drive in the extension cord usb plug that runs from the back of the unit to the front. Which looks kind of tacky .
There's a lot of options to change the sound, subwoofer control, high, mid, low adjustable EQ. THe screen is only 6.1" Because there's a volume knob, the menu button and a source button all on the left hand side, which is kind of useless since all of the same options to change are right there on the screen. I m able to download movies from the net on to my USB Flash and use that to watch videos, the picture quality is Nice, but the screen is pretty small.
I have it hooked to a MA Audio XE1000.1D 1000 Watt Mono-Block amp , along with 2 12's and some nice 4 way front speakers, it sounds like a cinema in my little kia, the sound quality is DOLBY so, everyone knows how good that sounds if they've ever been to the movie theatres.
Overall, I like the unit, but for $70 more , I could've got a unit that has on all the time GPS, WIFI / 3G , a SD Card slot and pushed at least 50x4 out of my speakers, I should've just waited and got that system, NEXT TIME!
YOu'll like this if all your looking for is a stereo, oh ya, 1 more thing , there is No Blue tooth, you have to purchase this goofy looking bluetooth adapter for like $80.00 rendering the bluetooth useless also. Fail
I dont own a rear view camera, I figured it kind of useless since I can just turn around and see what i'm doing, I trust my sight more anyways.
It does have a couple video/audo inputs that I've been trying to think of what I want to plug in there, maybe an XBOX or something, but not quite to that point yet.
My biggest sadness was that there is no way to use the GPS unless you have an iphone, I own a nexus 7 and droid 3 , and both units are not compatible with this JVC
DVD Picture Video is good
Plays ripped movies
lots of inputs in the back for video/sound
Bluetooth is useless unless you buy adapter
GPS is useless unless you own an iphone
Slow processor when searching for music
USB Chord hangs from behind the unit and is at least 1 ft long (tacky)
Not very good response to touch
