    Replacing the OEM Head Unit (HU) in a 2007 Saab

    This HU was installed using the wiring harness and Steering Wheel Controls (SWC) along with the mounting and trim hardware from SpiralAudio.com to retain OEM functionality and appearance.

    Also installed a Pioneer ND-BC8 backup camera which I tucked up under the trim piece above the rear license plate. Routing the cable safely inside the trunk lid and through the existing flexible wiring holder, around the convertible top mechanism, under the passenger door sill trim, behind the glove box, and into the HU cavity was the most time-consuming task. The Pioneer ND-BC8 has both an RCA Video plug and the ground and 12V fused feed at the dashboard end of the cable.

    Standard the 2007 Saab Aero comes with two amplifiers, one for the FL, FR, RL, and RR speakers, the other for the 12-inch woofer behind the back seat for a total of 300 Watts. The Pioneer HU was unleashed latent sound quality and amplitude that just was not there with the OEM HU!! IT’S LOUD!!

    Overall, the head unit is exceptionally good and has great functionality like HD Radio, iPod integration, Android Auto, 2 camera inputs, and so on.

    My only criticism that cost the review one star is that the screen just isn’t bright enough, especially in a convertible.

    I bought this HU mainly on availability, most HUs are out of stock/on backorder due to the pandemic-induced supply chain issues, and I wasn’t going to spend $800 on a $199 list price HU!!

    Apart from the lack of screen brightness, this is a great HU and camera duo.

    Great addition

    I LOVE this radio! My car is over 10 years old and i feel like I have a new car with this new gadget. I bought it mainly for safety. I no longer have to look down at my phone to change a song or illegally read a text. Siri does it all for me. Great investment.

    Best Carplay/Android Auto unit for $300!

    Fantastic unit, great screen and picture. Apple Carplay works flawlessly. The 13-band EQ is nice and the overall use is easy as the interface is very intuitive. The touchscreen is smooth and responsive. Sound quality is good, but I do have all speakers on amps so I only use the RCA pre-outs. This is night and day better than my old Sony AVX-1000AX.

  • Review by GunsNDrums, 8 out of 10
    Overall great! Not a super-easy install if DIY

    FINALLY installed this on my truck. Sounds great and looks great!

    A couple of things to note:

    1. This radio says "XM Ready" which means you MUST buy an XM receiver in order for this to have XM capabilities. Once you get the receiver installed, it works great...just realize that this does not come with the receiver.

    2. Also, if you are new to these, go research the parking brake hookup as well and do what you need to do.

    3. If you want your steering wheel controls to work, you need to buy a thing for it as well. It was a pain to put in, but I got my working just great!

    Overall it sounds great, and it has tons of cool features. Very happy!!!

    Look no further

    Good solid radio. Unit is fast and very responsive. quick start up time. Bluetooth connects fairly quickly. Only downside is if you want to go to the settings, you have to set your parking brake. The touchscreen is the same material as like an iPhone, so it will get smudges on it pretty easily.

    Nice screen, lacking good tone control

    I like most everything about this stereo. One of few that fit my car, I chose it over the ILX-W650 because the screen could be customized. The interface is clean and it is easy to operate while driving. I do wish they had left the equalizer from the 650, this only has 5 bands and after playing around with it the equalizer and tone controls are weird. Turn the bass up, the treble goes down. Turn the treble up, the bass goes down. But, if you use the preset equalizations the sound is pretty good overall.

    Excellent in Every Way

    My old JBL radio that came with my 2003 Toyota Avalon stopped playing CDs completely and would rarely play radio music without heavy static, so I knew it was time to replace it. I searched the Best Buy website for a replacement and this seemed like the best option since it would fill up the space once my old radio was taken out.

    I am so glad I chose this receiver because it plays CDs and I can also connect my phone via Bluetooth or AUX cable and play music from my phone. It comes with a microphone that Geek Squad installed above my rearview mirror so I can take calls using the receiver while my phone is hooked up in its holder on my dashboard. You can also install the JCV app and use your phone as a remote for the receiver, which is very helpful if you're parked and you want to control the receiver without having to press anything on the receiver.

    Overall, this is an excellent receiver and it's very easy to use once you read the instruction manual. I highly recommend this product!

    LOVE it.

    I love this stereo. I installed it myself (a single mom of 2 toddlers) and its actually pretty easy. Even the rewiring was easy to do. No problems with the bluetooth connectivity, love that the light is dimmable, on the actual radio the date and time are always displayed, when using other audio inputs just press menu to see the time. My phone automatically connects and i can use the stereo to control and make calls from my phone. Absolutely recommend.

    Great car stereo

    This car stereo is amazing it’s a upgrade from my factory stereo that was missing a up button and the CD changer was jammed. So far Bluetooth was amazing for music streaming, I can skip a song without touching my phone. Same thing as using the USB port. The radio sounds great and so is the CD player. I haven’t tried satellite radio yet. The best part of the stereo is it have radio data system so it will show the artist and the name on the song playing on the stereo through the radio station on AM, FM and satellite radio, USB, Bluetooth and sometimes CD.

    Radio

    This was a great purchase. However, please make sure you have the wiring that work with the car radio. These are things that you are unaware of when trying to install it. This will cause a installation delay if the parts aren't available at the store. Please call the store in advance and inquiry on the wiring that you will need. This will eliminate the back and forth of going to the store and have to reschedule because the parts are not there.

    I love it!!!

    I have a 2002 car and it had a really old radio you couldn’t put CDs in and the channels were kind of iffy. So I decided to go with this one because I wanted to be able to listen to CDs connect to my phone, call from my phone, have a better signal, and just have a better experience overall. I Really really enjoy this new stereo

    Decent Double Din

    Pretty good functionality, the only thing is sometimes the BT connects and plays but is mute. I have to turn the source to AM and back to BT before it works again, does it every so often. Possibly not the fault of the stereo but an install issue? Not sure but it works fine aside from that and enhanced my speaker output.

    You cant beat it for the price.

    Honestly... I usually upgrade vehicles to a super nice deck,,, I had a beater truck that I use for work so I bought this and had it installed... And WOW. Bluetooth connectivity is great, cool color options... overall a very nice choice if your not looking to spend too much or have a vehicle that is not in need of a super expensive deck.. This is top choice in my opinion.

    I had my doubts when I ordered Plantet audio. Doubt no more this thing is amazing. Did self install little over 1 hour with no problems. Didn’t purchase cameras until I made sure radio worked will be ordering those soon. I’m a cheapskate so for me to say it’s worth every penny says a lot.

    It’s cool...but

    It’s a good product. Matched perfectly with my car. My only issue is with the audio sound adjustment, it’s not complicated at all , you just can’t adjust your presets without the system making you adjust ALL the sound moving all presets to 0. Sorry, I’m not an audio technician, feels like I’m adjusting sound constantly. Outside of that, it’s awesome.

    I love this head unit so far. Favorite feature is Apple CarPlay & android auto. I haven’t had any trouble. I drive a Jeep so the removable monitor is a plus when the doors are off. I do wish the equalizer had better settings but no biggie. If you’re installing a back up camera as well only turn on the review camera power and review camera options turning on “review camera view” flips the image.

    This is the media receiver you are looking for.

    This review is what I love about this radio. It has am/fm and SiriusXM. You can connect through Bluetooth or usb cable. The USB cable allows you to use Carplay/Android Auto. It has customizable backgrounds and accent light colors, an equilizer, and Crossfader controls. If you have a subwoofer, you can control the sub independently from the other speakers. There have been a few instances on Bluetooth where certain songs I played on Google Play had no sound. I have not yet found the cause of this. I suspect it may be the new Android 10 update. I had this issue for about an hour, then it would not replicate. I am so happy with my purchase. I decided between this and the Sony XAV, choosing this because of the high customizability.

    I really like this stereo

    I love this stereo a lot due to the convenience it provides me with CarPlay. However, I’m not good at adjusting how the music sounds. Thus, all the audio settings it has is super confusing for someone like me. I eventually figured it out after a couple weeks. That’s the only con I have found about this stereo so far.

    Excellent Sound!

    I already had kicker speakers installed in my Toyota Corolla. Andrew installed this radio today and I thought I would have a lot of highs and would need a amp to get some bass. Boy was I wrong! This radio sounds amazing. I like my music loud and I honestly don’t think I need a amp. Still getting use to the controls. I really don’t care for the microphone. You have to yell at it but I really don’t care about that to much about that after I heard my radio. Display is pretty basic. Nothing too fancy. I like the apple car play. Plugged my phone in and BOOM it was there. I wish you could hear my car! Those kicker speakers sound Amazing compared to the stock radio. The installation was quick and looks great. You really can’t tell I have a aftermarket radio in the dash. This radio even hooked up to my factory back up camera and the steering wheel controls still work great. Very happy with my purchase and the customer service I received at Bismarck Best Buy. Thank you Andrew!

    Nice Upgrade on 2007 Ford F150. Makes older vehicles look modern. I needed to upgrade speakers as well OEM speakers didn't have the clear sound I needed. Android Auto works perfect had my daughter do Apple Play as well they both work fine. Bluetooth works perfect although a few times pressing Pandora on Radio displayed not connected. Quick fix was to link phone up through Android Auto USB then everything synced back together.

    Absolutely a Fantastic Car Stereo

    This Pioneer consistently amazes me. It is so feature packed, that it took me a while to learn all it can do. This is not to say that it's hard to learn, just that I usually do not lean a feature, until I need to use it. The Apple Car Play, Rear Backup Camera, DVD/CD, Reception, and Sound is phenomenal. The interface with my steering wheel controls works seamlessly, and the SirrusXM had fantastic reception. With everything this unit offers, it is one of the best deals period. Add on top of all of that, Free Instillation, it's hard, if not impossible to beat!!

    Alpine ILX-207SXM installed in 2006 Dodge Ram 2500

    The form factor of this receiver is nice,Apple CarPlay works great this version came with the SiriusXM radio tuner in the box so no need to buy separate if you like satellite radio, has an hdmi connection so alls you have to do is hook up and hdmi cable and get the right mirroring adapter for your phone to watch movies you’ve downloaded to your phone whether it be google play movies or Netflix offline downloads where there’s no service, no need for a DVD player or CD player when you can download tons of stuff to your Phone. The free installation and price matching is a bonus to get a great deal at Best Buy. I would recommend getting a parking brake bypass installed so you don’t have to have the e brake on to change certain settings and it will allow you to watch videos while the car is in motion if that’s something your interested in.

    Night and day upgrade from Pioneer 8200nex

    Even though this probably supposed to be a step “down” from my Pioneer, this runs much better.

    I love having the voice option button I can press to get to Siri at any time. This is in case the volume from the speakers is too loud, or if there is a lot of sound in the cabin.

    I’ve noticed Siri works better when pressing the voice button, however, this appears to be on the Apple side after iOS upgrades as I noticed the same issue with my Pioneer.

    Some might consider this a drawback, but you cannot access the settings unless you are in park with the parking brake on. However, if you download the tune it app, you can adjust all the audio settings there such as the EQ, and most everything else related to that without having to use the brake.

    I would HIGHLY recommend going on YouTube and learning the user interface before buying this unit so you know what to expect. I’ve owned several Alpine units in the past, all single DIN, and this is a more time consuming user interface than I’ve dealt with before.

    At this price point it would be nice for most people to have more than nine bands for the EQ, but it also lets you adjust the Q level to how much you want it to adjust the surrounding frequencies. Most head units don’t offer that. For ease of use, I’d recommend using the tune it app where it will categorize the nine bands into bass, mid, treble. It also lets you choose different frequencies instead of being stuck at one frequency like most head units. This is a parametric EQ as opposed to a graphic EQ. The difference is in the eye of the beholder and there are lots of online forums and videos that go over the differences.

    I use a separate Alpine H800 DSP/EQ and found I needed to adjust the bands on it more for this unit than the Pioneer, but the Pioneer I replaced was one of the worst car audio investments I’ve made in almost 15 years. I sent it off for multiple warranty issues at once after only a few months of ownership. On the warranty site, they give a list of specific issues to pick from and my unit had more than one of the specific issues. So, I’ll take that trade off.

    CarPlay is excellent and easy to see. I mean, CarPlay is a standard interface regardless of the unit, but some manufacturers take longer than others to navigate through the menu. I’ve noticed after having mine installed that I have to wait until after the unit finishes booting before I can hook up my phone and have it switch into CarPlay mode. Otherwise it seems to just charge it. However, disconnecting and reconnecting the cable fixes that. There may even be a firmware update available or down the road that addresses that.

    I like how the physical buttons on the head unit are simple to know the functions of. Alpine has made some improvements over what they have done in the past where there were so many buttons that it would involve a higher learning curve to figure out what they all do. This unit includes a button that brings you directly to navigation mode within CarPlay (or Android Auto if you use that). That’s a big time saver.

    Even with the identical back up camera installed, that’s a vast improvement over my 8200nex. The picture is clearer and it doesn’t cut out.

    Make sure you read the description and specs for this head unit. This doesn’t come with an optical drive for CDs or DVDs, but the Lightning to HDMI adapter more than makes up for that.

    I’ve had no issues with glare at all even with full sunlight. Not blinding at night either.

    I had this installed by Geek Squad as part of the package deal.

    I didn’t have the tech install the satellite radio, so I can’t speak to that feature for this specific unit. Long story short, the AIFF files from my iPhone 7 Plus sound better since it isn’t an over the air source and they won’t drop out during bad weather. I don’t want to potentially relive the bad customer service of satellite radio I had in years past.

    I had used Alpine almost exclusively until someone recommended the Pioneer and I’ll never go back.

    An added note, before the 8200nex, I also had a 4200nex that had identical issues, and also ran slower. From my personal experiences, it could just be that whole year of that NEX series had issues as other reviews mention it as well. They may have improved the performance within the alphabet soup of the names of newer models. But when the flagship model became a sinking ship, I decided I was done throwing away money on the Pioneer units and was ready to go back to ole reliable. But, at this price point, I’d recommend getting the protection plan regardless of what brand you buy.

    AHHHMAZING

    I love this stereo receiver! I wasn’t sure if I would like it or not, being an aftermarket product and all but it is perfect. It doesn’t look like an aftermarket product at all. It fits in my 2013 Jeep Wrangler flawlessly. Love having Apple Car Play and being able to send and receive texts via voice commands. The only downfall is that in order to use Apple Car Play, you have to have it connected by USB cord. Otherwise, you can still use bluetooth and handsfree calling wirelessly. I HIGHLY recommend you let the geek squad install it. They know what they are doing and it takes them essentially no time to install it. You won’t be sorry.

    Excellent headunit

    I’ve been installing car audio for 30 years now as a hobby. I’ve exclusively used Alpine head-units for the last 25 years. This is bar none the best hu I’ve had out of the lot of them. That’s saying something considering the quality of the old school Alpine stuff. It functions very well with my iPhone with 16,500 songs! The handsfree is a must in today’s overly distracted driving world. Install was simple and I don’t intend to watch videos so I simply wired the parking brake to a ground wire for ease of reaching the tuning features. At $599 it’s a bargain!

    Alpine, never disappointed

    Perfect mid rage deck if your a sound guy. Alpine offers a parametric EQ on this unit which if you don't know what that is look it up it makes all the difference when tuning and to my knowledge isn't offered on other decks in this price range. Easy interface, double touch for volume and track selection hands free for text and calling all in all excellent choice Cons: 4 volt pre out (c'mon Alpine this one is huge for music guys) and one monitor input (you have to buy Alpine expansion for multiple) it is worth mentioning this deck has HDMI in and out ports for mirroring entertainment

    The Right Car Stereo for Me

    I am enjoying my DDX9707S. This is my first car stereo with a touch screen. After a two months, I have discovered how to use the secondary functions on the buttons, a great way to put less use on the touch screen, and using the buttons is easier and less distracting while driving. I have the feeling that the longer I have this unit, the more I will like it. Wireless Android Auto works quite well, and if I am going on a long trip I can use the wired Android Auto and it will keep my phone charged. I had my installer replace both cigarette lighters in my car with USB ports so my phone can be plugged in easily and inconspicuously for a long trip. I use the CD player, but not as much as I thought I would. When I can ask Google to call up any music, it seems senseless to fumble around with my CD case, but it is nice to know that I can still listen to my CDs in case have to drive through an area with no 4G or 5G cell service. I got the right Car Stereo for me, after a lot of online research. The DDX9707S has more capabilities than I am using, so I am looking forward to discovering more as I add on to it.

    Wireless CarPlay with idatalink (canbus) support

    Installed in 2016 RAM 1500 (had the lowest end radio prior).

    Absolutely love, love my DDX9707S Kenwood stereo. There is also the nearly identical DMX9707S that may be a better fit for some if DVD support is not required. All other features are the same minus the DVD player.

    I bought this stereo as Kenwood has a series of radios that support the Maestro iDataLink ADS-MMR module. This interface, besides providing me the standard steering wheel support other interfaces provides also talks directly to the autos computer systems (canbus) so that factory features can be displayed on the radio. For example I can have my tire pressure, climate controls and parking sensors displayed on the radio.

    I've also provided a picture of my dash as the Radio communicates to it as well. You'll see that the song "Feel it still" is shown both on the CarPlay display as well as on my deluxe dash.

    First off, if you have not experienced "wireless" CarPlay or Android Auto (spouse has Samsung phone), you have no idea how free you feel when you don't require a cord. In addition, sometimes the cord can be a source of problems for your CarPlay or Android Auto experience. USB support is certainly available. Unfortunately (but perhaps a future firmware upgrade) iPhones do need to use their lightning cable if you want USB Mirroring. Android phones can wireless mirror and my spouses Samsung works great.

    The radio has excellent audio capabilities and has 4volt outputs for separate car amplifiers if you are really tricking it out. Has full crossover controls, so external crossovers are only optional for subwoofers and the like helping to reduce future expense.

    There is the ability to support 4 camera inputs (as well as a video output, more on that in a moment). Seriously considering the Kenwood DRV-N520 dash cam, as it'll plug directly into this and the DMX9707S radios with extra features. It's nice having my factory review mirror camera integrated into the car radio. While not a cable you can get from BestBuy, I was able to purchase a cable that allowed that connect and also keep it working on the review mirror).

    Something very interesting about the Radio is the ability to support Zones. Instead of just the radio through the entire vehicle, you can have the front be CarPlay, SiriusXM or whatever, and have the DVD or other source in the back. With a companion display the fam can be watching a DVD in the back seat along with headphones while the parents listen to music or anything else.

    Each car installation is different depending on make and model, but for reference I have the following along with my Kenwood DDX9707S on my RAM 1500:

    *Maestro ADS-MRR Universal Radio Replacement and Steering Wheel Interface

    * Maestro HRN-RR-CH3 Plug and Play T-Harness for CH3 Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep Vehicles

    *Maestro Acc-USB-RAM Media Hub USB Port Adapter Kit (retains factory AUX and USB connectors in console seat)

    * A Fakra Z to DIN radio antenna adapter (RAM radio had strange small radio connector).

    When planning to retain the factory features, be certain that you request the iDatalink feature, steering wheel interfaces are available for cheaper installation but do not retain the advanced features. Maestro ADS-MRR or ADS-MRR2 are required to retain these features and has two specific ports on the back of the radio for these.

    I did have a slightly lower value on my DDX9707S as I've found that we don't use DVD's as much as we thought we would. The DMX9707S may be a better value, but depends if you'll want to use movies for the back seat zone.

    Overall I recomend.

    Overall happy that the unit is wireless apple and android and also has wireless phone mirroring! Perfect. Only thing that keeps it from 5 stars is the screen image quality is not like HD and not as bright as a cell phone screen. I felt like the screen should glow just a tad brighter.

    Terrible service at the Best Buy install garage however. I have a G-Wagon and they could not figure out how to install it. I had to go to a independant audio shop for install.

    But besides that I recommend for the price for what you get!

    Great radio

    This radio is definitely an upgrade from my previous radio. I like that I can pair more than one device to the Bluetooth at a time, whereas my previous radio would only store one. I also like that it has a bass boost for the Bluetooth device. The radio looks good and sounds good and installation wasn’t too hard. I put it in a 1994 Mazda Miata and it fit ok with a few modifications to the installation kit. There is also a small gap at the bottom of the radio because the Miata was a ant designed for a double den radio but overall I’m satisfied with the look and overall quality of the radio. I would highly recommend it.

    Great Sound for the Price.

    My daughter has a 2000 Honda Accord with a factory deck and speakers that sounded ok at best, plus no Bluetooth. She wanted to keep it under $250 for the deck and speakers and this Sony unit fit the job perfectly. Great power and sound for the price. No CD player, but I can't remember the last time I used a CD in any of my vehicles. The deck include a mic that I just mounted on the dash right above the clock, and it picks up hers voice perfectly. So now she can do hands free calls

    Much better than most at the same price range!

    I originally ordered a panasonic that i really like but during the day it was IMPOSSIBLE to see the display. This receiver has MUCH BETTER display visibility during the day. I was surprised that so many people reviewing this unit said that the display brightness didn’t adjust. It definitely adjusts and though it may not be perfect its much better than most. You can tell when you check the receivers they have at the store. Also, when i had the panasonic I realized that i didnt need a cd player, plus it was so complicated with all these crazy equalizer settings. Not this sony though, very easy to understand, the app is basic and the options are few. Most importantly, it sounds amazing!!! You can see in my picture that it’s pretty easy to see the display during the day in sunshiny florida.

    Great sound and features.

    For $120 you can't beat this stereo. Of course it cost me quite a bit more for all of the installation hardware (mounting kit, wiring harness, steering wheel control adapter, satellite tuner and a new bezel for my truck. Obviously everyone won't have all of these expenses. The sound is much improved over the factory stereo it replaced considering I didn't replace any speakers. All in all, I'm very happy with the choice and it looks awesome.

    wish it fit

    like Sony products was glad to find that this would fit my car. Went to have it installed at Best Buy and the installer called me back to show me how it fit and if I wanted to keep it. The problem was the knob only one on the bottom was keeping him from putting the dash cover back because it was in contact with the knob. He said he tried manipulating the radio up over but it still wouldn’t allow the cover for the car to be attached. He did his very best and called his manager to see if they had a radio to fit but they didn’t. Anyway I ordered a touchscreen from Sony and it with new speakers are getting installed tomorrow.

    Good looking stereo!

    I purchased this stereo because of the look and the volume knob. I am overall very satisfied with it but I have faced/facing two issues. The mount bracket that is recommended for this stereo is not quite compatible with it, especially in SN95 Mustangs. However, the geek squad employee who installed the stereo on my car did a custom work on it to make it fit better in my car. The second issue is that the radio goes off and on by itself (not a lot, maybe once a month). The stereo may itself not be responsible for this problem, it may have something to do with my car's battery. But let's see if I can make it go away by doing something with the battery cables and terminals.

    The "Free" Installation was NOT Free...

    I love the Kenwood! However I had issues reguarding the "free" installation. When I purchased the radio I was told the free installation would cost around $30. I went to my neighborhood Best But and was told as I purchased the radio they couldn't schedule my install because the installation center would get mad. So I called and scheduled the install myself. I then visited the store where the radio was to be installed. The gentlemen said I would cost $230 to have it installed. They said I needed a $149.00 module that was suited for a newer car and they would might have to cut things to make the Kenwood "fit". I then called Kenwood and they referred me to Crutchfeild.com. They told me I needed and cheaper module. I spent $100 on parts including panel removal tools and soldered the connections myself and installed it myself in 45 minutes. Not cool Best Buy installation guys...

    No coordination between BestBuy, Geek Squad and me

    Would have given 5 stars if not for the poor coordination between Best Buy, Geek Squad and me. When i arrived at my installation appointment, the guy told me i needed more parts for the installation and he also needed to charge me $30 more for adding a power wire??? Wheres the free installation?? I went into the store and they didn't have all what i needed. I had to order parts and reschedule my appointment more than two weeks out. I wish Best Buy would have coordinated better. I didn’t know exactly what they needed and they didn’t tell me to come back and order specific items ahead of time. Coordination between BB, Geek Squad and customers needs to improve. So, i finally got what i needed and showed up for the installation. It went well, except that the guy installing my new stereo lost my user manual, so now i have to look it up online and print one. I have 2007 Ford Mustang GT.

    Nice vehicle stereo

    The aftermarket stereo in my 1998 Ford F150 finally died. 26 years old (I installed it from another vehicle) This stereo had all the features I wanted, with a few more than I thought I needed, but I like them now. Installation went according to plan although the instructions for the kit required to install this stereo into the truck could have been a bit more clear. Overall this is a good install and a very nice stereo.

    Perfect radio for me.

    I love this radio. I have a 2000 Honda Civic I just bought which needed a Bluetooth Radio. I have 24/7 Geek Support on my computers so installation was free if one has this. The salesman was knowledgeable and helped me pick out just the right one for my needs. I am old school and am still listening to my CDs so wanted a CD player. I have been a city girl for 30 years and hadn’t had a car until I bought my Honda so I really knew next to nothing about them. The technicians were on-time, friendly and gave me a great demo after installation. This radio hooks up effortlessly when I get in the car. The colors look cool. I am very happy with this purchase. No downside for me on this radio. This was a win for me from start to finish.

    What a good purchase!

    So far, I'm really enjoying this radio. Xavier at the Buckhead store did a nice job of working with me to find a good radio that would fit. This radio actually has buttons that you can press, which I appreciate because I couldn't seem to apply the right amount of pressure to the screen on the previous one I had. This one also fits nicely with my Toyota Corolla, 2010. Further, the buttons light up in different colors, very slowly. I'm quite pleased!

    Satisfied Customer

    I recently purchased the Kenwood DPX504BT Built-in Bluetooth-In-Dash CD/DM Receiver- Black receiver. It was installed by Geek Squad in Henderson. I really like the performance and particularly the USB port. On my vehicle there would be a loud POP in the speakers every time the radio was turned on. I was advised of this when I picked up my vehicle and was told I need to provide a 12voly to 5 volt step down resistor and they would install it at no charge. I did get the resistor and they installed it as promised. The loud POP is now gone. Perfect.

    Freakin' Awesome!

    Access to Spotify alone makes this purchase worth it. It's as much fun as getting a TV for the first time. I can choose what bands want to listed to -- things I'd never hear on terrestrial radio like: Dispatch, Lucky Boys Confusion, The Czars, Australian Country Music Artists, almost anything you can imagine!

    The user interface can be tricky though. You cannot easily input a new GPS destination EVEN WHEN STOPPED because the car is worried you're driving. I usually have to pull the jack out or speak loudly towards the microphone --several times in a row-- to get voice activation to work.

    Still, this is so much more enjoyable than my factory head unit. I can't wait to take even a grocery store trip so I can listen to Spotify.

    Apply CarPlay & USB Connection Not working

    I bought this item on 9/16/2020, I was able to get it installed 2 weeks after 9/16. I waited 2 weeks for a harness and interface to fit a 2012 Malibu. Literally a week after installation, CarPlay quit working. I got a message and took a picture of it. I called Bestbuy, and unfortunately I don’t have their extended warranty, so they didn’t help me. I called Pioneer Electronics and that was a total disaster. They have no idea what this product even existed and I thought that was strange. I am dealing with it now, and for those that do not care about Apple CarPlay or the USB connection, take your shot but you’ll probably have a better experience with this product than I did. But, if I can go back, I would have got a different brand. Pioneer electronics are not very helpful.

    Overall Awesome Head Unit For The Price

    I installed this in my 2009 Jeep Wrangler Sahara Unlimited to replace the factory radio. I also installed the iDatalink Maestro module to retain all of the factory original features and was required in order to control front to rear fade as I kept the factory Infinity amplifier. The Maestro also gives me an engine gauge screen on the new Pioneer, tire pressure, door status, battery voltage, and engine error code display/reset via the ODB connector. I also replaced all of the factory speakers. JBL Harman components in the front, JBL coaxials in sound bar, and a Pioneer low profile sub in the rear. Finally I also installed a backup camera which is displayed on the Pioneer screen. So far I love the Pioneer head unit. Amazing sound quality, great features. I have a Samsung Galaxy S9 and the Android Auto is really cool. Allows me to run Waze navigation and other apps like Pandora when my phone is plugged into the Pioneer USB port. My only complaints, thus the 4 stars: (1) Wish there were two USB ports, keep switching between USB thumb drive loaded with music files and my phone for navigation. (2) Control buttons on left side are rather small. Overall a great radio and great price! Was $450 but got it on sale for $299. TIP: The Metra dash install/trim kit I used has very soft/cheap plastic, cracks easily. I've read that Scosche makes a better quality one and will pursue that brand for future installs.

    Nice Unit!

    So far- so good. Really nice unit with capability to do so much. I plan on adding on the Maestro feature this spring, along with cameras. That’s what I like about it....if you can’t afford to do everything at once, you can add features 1 by 1. I’ve never been a pioneer fan, I usually like Kenwood. But, after seeing a review on the Money Pit feature on Donut media’s Facebook page- pitting pioneer against the exact Kenwood model I was contemplating, it won me over. Granted....the unit they reviewed was a 1500 NEX- if I went with a more expensive model it should be just as good, if not better. The call quality on both ends are great. After seeing mine - I have friends and family looking to upgrade.

    Four and nine tenths stars, happy customer

    I put this into a 2005 mustang, which isn’t exactly a recommended vehicle in some places, but it works really well so long as you mount it a little deeper in the dash by making new screw holes. Mounting the back unit flush will mash your knuckles shifting gears. With this modification, the thing is a dream. It modernizes the car beautifully and it’s a joy to drive it. My biggest complaint is that radio presets are a pain in the hindquarters to switch between in the interface. I will be watching and hoping for firmware updates on that one. Otherwise, it gets my highest recommendation.

    Ordered this 10-19-21, received on 10-21-21 and setup the free installation online for next open slot near me for 10-24-21 online night of purchase. which didnt save for my location oddly, after a hour on the phone with bestbuy, and multiple reps...i am told they cannot honor the free installation and i would have to pay for the installation...as my purchase didnt qualify but as of today 10-21-21 it still has free installtion on there. Not the reps fault...but maybe someone needs to take down the "free installation" if it cannot be honored. I cant say how the device works since i cant get it installed.

    Good for maps and music players

    The screen thou low res is fine for maps and the few apps this unit works with. The problem is apps. Only a few of my android apps work/display on this head unit. In fact the few that do work are missing features/selections on the screen vs when displayed on my galaxy s9. It's beta mode at best but my music app works as does google maps so im can live with it. The position adjustments for the large screen are good and allow my shifter just enough room.

    Lots of goodies for the price

    Lots of features for a great price. I buy sacds and dvd audio discs. I was amazed that they played in the unit! Great power too. Would have given 5 stars but the instructions are less than explicit. Takes time to access certain adjustments.

    It seems to work fine have not had any problems

    Works well does everything I wanted it to do would not suggest that if you never installed one I would let someone else do it the installation kit is not as easy as they say and instructions are poor. Installed in 2004 2500 Dodge pickup

    I wouldn’t buy it again

    The stereo worked great for the first year. Now it will not connect to my phone. It cuts in and out on music. Attached is the picture that happens when I plug the phone in. I took a lot of time looking at and comparing stereos.

    Clear screen with lots of functions

    Pros: Clear screen, lots of functions, clear screen when playing DVD's

    Cons: instruction manual lacks android auto setup, no remote.

    Purchased this unit as an upgrade from a previous Kenwood. I really like the touchscreen. Its clear to see on the brightest days. Also there's multiple functions including dvd player and backup camera capability. I've tried to setup the android auto function on my own since the manual doesn't mention it, but I haven't figured it out as of yet. Not a big deal though. There is no remote which would make it alil easier when driving.

    Overall, this is a pretty good unit and would recommend it to anyone who's looking to upgrade.

    What an Upgrade....Amazing

    I have a 2004 F-150 pickup, which until yesterday had the factory radio....pre-MP3, pre-Bluetooth, pre Android, Pre-Iphone/pod/pad.....it had Am/FM and played CDs.

    Bought this last week to come out of the dark ages, and learned at checkout the installer had just quit. Tried to call the next nearest Bestbuy (65 miles away), but no answer for 3 days.

    Woke up yesterday and decided to just throw it in myself. Soldered and shrink-wrapped all the connections to the wiring harness, ran the microphone wire, and voila....21st century tech in my 15 year old truck.

    Sounds great, Android Auto integrates everything in.....navigation, Bluetooth phone and music, address book, etc. very impressive. Download the whole manual...it comes with the quick start guide but the real one is 108 pages. It even updated the time automatically. Capabilities are almost overwhelming.

    I was going to spring for the one with onboard GPS, but this is actually better because my phone and Google Maps are always current, and I’ve used the phone for years for navigation...now I can just have the map broadcast onto the dash screen.

    Awesome Stereo

    01 Ford F250. Excellent stereo. Works with my Andriod. Connects bluetooth easily, able to play my youtube music library an pods. Easily see radio lights even in sunny days. Great equalizer sounds. Search Crutchfield site for this stereo, then see which cable and mounting bracket you'll need. Then order exact one from Bestbuy along with your stereo. Crutchfield has great info on what youll need. Unfortunately Bestbuy doesnt give exact specifics. I installed it myself. Hope this helps. This is a great price for such a slick looking and quality stereo.

    Great Car Stereo for Old People!

    It’s a great car stereo! I’m old and stopped listening to CD’s recently (yes, I’m a dinosaur). I (like my old man) appreciate the quality of sound. This stereo delivers! It’s easy for ME (dinosaur) to understand. The Alexa feature, Spotify, and normal radio functions are just what I need. I highly recommend this stereo to anyone transitioning to a Bluetooth and streaming radio that require an upgrade. The Best Buy car radio installer did a great job.

    Decent unit, a few minor issues

    Replaced the factory Bose system in my 2008 Porsche Cayman S. I chose this unit because of the completely flush front face, i didn’t like the other double DIN units that had a “button chin” at the bottom that ruined the flush look. The touch sensitive virtual buttons along the bottom work well, but my only complaint is that there is no forward & back track/seek buttons. There is the option for plugging in a adapter to use factory steering wheel controls, but my car is not equipped with any. I can use the on screen controls to adjust tracks, but when connected to CarPlay and using navigation, i would have to switch apps, to change songs, then switch back to the navigation app. I’m hoping iOS 13, and updated CarPlay interface will solve this problem.

    The other complaint is that this unit often will display that the phone connected is not recognized, or is incompatible. I have a iPhone X, running the most up to date version of iOS. I have to power cycle the radio, and power cycle the phone to get things working right again. My Hyundai Kona, with the factory Hyundai CarPlay interface has never had such problems.

  • Review by WranglerJKflyer, 10 out of 10
    Awesome upgrade for Wrangler JK owners

    Save time and read for tips if you have a Jeep Wrangler JK (2018) with premium audio (with factory OEM amp). First, you will lose the front to rear fade with the ILX-W650, regardless of whether you use the iDatalink Maestro RR or the PAC RP4-CH11 to retain factory features such as amp or steering wheel controls. Many sources suggest you will retain the front to rear fade if you use the Maestro, but this only applies if you use a head unit that supports the iDatalink protocol (such as the ILX-207). The ILX-W650 does NOT support the iDatalink protocol so you will lose front to rear fade regardless...not a big deal really. So which should you use...Maestro or PAC? I learned the hard way that the Maestro will NOT support steering wheel controls on the ILX-W650 contrary to what some retailers recommend, even iDatalink's own website. At best it'll work intermittently. I troubleshooted 4-5 times via phone with iDatalink support and finally took a volt meter to the 3.5mm jack output coming from the Maestro and discovered it was only outputting 1.2V when steering buttons were being pressed, which apparently isn't enough to trigger the Alpine to recognize commands. For comparison the PAC RP4-CH11 outputted closer to 1.5V on button presses and consistent always triggered the correct commands on the ILX-W650. iDatalink phone support was friendly, but they could not figure out why their Maestro wouldn't send proper steering wheel commands to ILX-W650 even when consulting an engineer. So save yourself time and don't bother with the Maestro. It seems like a nice piece of hardware, especially with the ease of programming via computer, but it just doesn't play well with the ILX-W650. Again though, the PAC RP4-CH11 functions perfectly with steering wheel commands on the ILX-W650. On a side note, when I initially hooked up the RP4-CH11 the volume/gain going to speakers was so loud there was a constant clean "hiss" even at a volume level of 1 (only disappeared with mute). On a volume scale from the ILX-W650 from 1 to 30, anything past 12 came close to blowing the woofers with extreme distortion. The audio quality was really disappointing initially. Furthermore, a volume setting of 1 was still very audible, and no where near the old volume scale with OEM 430 radio. The problem was as if the RP4-CH11 turned the amp gain to 100% all the time regardless of volume level, causing a very loud volume scale. This problem was fixed by using the ILX-W650 RCA pre-outs (front) and connecting to the rear inputs of the RP4-CH11 harness, meaning none of the speaker outputs on the ILX-W650 were used in the end. You use the rear inputs on RP4-CH11 so that you hear assistant and nav commands since factory OEM amp only has two channels between head unit and amp. Making the change to RCA pre-outs was a HUGE improvement. The sound quality was restored along with a normal volume scale, in fact I think the overall sound quality ended up being better than the OEM 430 unit (keeping same speakers and amp). So definitely use the RCA pre-outs instead of speaker outs if you have the factory amp. All the other connections on the RP4-CH11 work flawlessly including the e-brake, reverse (I have MT), and remote amp turn on. I was able to use the included Alpine mic and place it in the same location as factory OEM by carefully unsnapping existing MIC (within A pillar trim), but leaving the factory OEM grill/rectangular trim cover for a clean look. I did try to retain the USB port within center console by purchasing a female mini USB to standard USB adapter (the connection is just behind HVAC controls on a gray box), and while the connection physically worked and supported charging, Android Auto would not load stating "incompatible device" with my Pixel 3 XL, so I suspect the conversation adapter lost something required in newer USB 3.0 protocols. But, you can easily run and tuck the Alpine included USB cable direct from ILX-W650 along center console and have cable exit between seat where it isn't seen. I was able to tuck the USB connection/joint (USB to USB-C) toward the front of center console on center floor by the small bump out storage by right driver foot for easy access to swap different USB cables if needed in future. I could not be more pleased with the RP4-CH11 and ILX-W650 combo. For under $430 with all parts needed it brings a lot of upgrades for a budget friendly price to Jeep Wrangler JK owners. Top features are Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, clean OEM styling, clean OEM similar menus and colors on the screen. It's also super easy to add an aftermarket backup camera with the existing camera input on the ILX-W650. Highly recommend this upgrade to JK owners.

    Great Sound in my Wrangler!

    I bought this unit to replace my stock Infiniti system in my 2011 Wrangler unltd. and I could not be happier! The stereo is a perfect fit in the dash and looks like a factory unit but sounds much much better. I bought it because I hated the Uconnect phone system that was horrible sounding and unusable and i wanted to install a backup camera. I lost factory nav but gained Apple CarPlay which works better anyway. The unit is simple and easy to use but has great sound and more power. It works seamlessly with my factory powered sub and was fairly easy to adjust the bass levels to mix perfectly. Overall I am very pleased with my purchase and as usual, BestBuy did an amazing job with the install. My only con if you wanna call it a con, was the extra money that it cost for the adapter plugs and install kit to make it work with my steering wheel controls and USB port (that is located on the back of the stereo) were pricier than expected. Also one annoying thing is that you cannot change any settings or switch between phones unless you stop and pull the emergency brake first. A safety feature that I would love to bypass but you cannot. For the price, $299 with fee installation and 0% interest it is the best deal hands down!

    Very Good stereo replacement

    I have an older large SUV and wanted to replace the existing radio with something more modern. I decided on this unit because of the price and the fact that it works both with Android and Apple phones. It also can be connected to a backup camera, which is another item I had installed on my SUV.

    It fits perfectly in my SUV.

    It works great but there is one flaw that drives me nuts. The mute button doesn't actually mute the radio receiver. I have to manually set the volume to zero. The unit does mute the radio if I get a call on my phone but if someone else wants to use their phone, the mute button lowers the volume but doesn't actually mute it.

    It is for this reason I gave it 4 stars and not 5.

I love that it’s simple and easy to use. I don’t have any unnecessary features and so far I haven’t had any issues with this product. I would highly recommend this radio if you’re looking for CarPlay or android auto. Backup camera works great as well. This one was less expensive than what I was going to go with, so it’s a win win!

    Yea

    this thing has some flaws, mostly it bothers me that it doesn't auto dim. it's pretty bright at night, and the only way to dim it is to go through several menu options to the dimmer page.

    Sounds great, with lots of customizations for your preferences.

    display is crisp-ish. does support movie file play back, but only at lower resolutions. Tried to play some HD content, but only got 5 or 6 frames per second on it. making the movie very choppy and totally unwatchable.

    Better than expected - excellent, in fact

    First, I am grateful for the polite and caring Geek Squad guys in the mobile department of the Cumming, Georgia store. This is my first aftermarket radio (at least in modern times), and was impressed about the systematic way it was installed - a great job! I thought this item would be a good idea for safety (and legal) reasons - in Georgia it is illegal to be grasping a phone while driving, and I am a long time Spotify, Pandora, Podcast client, etc user. A good idea, but was also expecting for this to be a compromise, because first of all, I thought it would not look that good. I thought there would be a big bezel appearance to fill up the dash hole, and that would scream AFTERMARKET, and I like the original look in my cars; however, that did not happen, it looks very much like it belongs, and it takes up most of the space formerly occupied by the Ford Shaker 500 double din stereo in my 2007 Mustang. Another reason for apprehension was some reports of glitchy operation. I have had virtually all smooth operation, This may be because I am benefiting from the fact I acquired a new iPhone right before the radio, and perhaps the Sony plays nicer with the more recent handset. Third, I thought the sound quality may not be as good. I always liked the stock radio’s sound. Happy again, because the Sony is just as good, to say the least, and I think it sounds better when playing loud material. I highly recommend this item.

    Great upgrade from stock

    Great upgrade from my 2011 Camaro's stock radio. The only "wish" I had was volume control when using Android Auto. When using the radio you simply make circles on the touchscreen to increase (clockwise) or decrease (counterclockwise) the volume. In Android Auto mode, you have to use the tiny volume up/down buttons. Other than that, everything is great. Matched with Kicker CS Series speakers all around.

    Good but a little expensive

    Android auto was awesome but it stopped working a few days ago due to my battery being trained and adding steering wheel button converter for the head unit I'm assuming because those are the last things I did before it stopped working but before that is great

    Love this upgrade

    We bought a used 12 lincoln navigator and the stereo in it was just outdated. The navigation system was clunky and hard to use, and the bluetooth wasn't the best quality. We upgraded to this stereo and the calls are perfectly clear, the apple carplay works perfectly. We are so happy.

    Jason, our tech did an amazing job of installing it for us and showing us how it all worked before we left. I could not be happier with this purchase.

    Excellent Radio

    Replaced a stock radio on my Tahoe. Has all the features I wanted.

    Installed it myself, with the purchase of the PAC harness and dash kit. Install was about an hour, retained all my steering wheel controls. Absolutely love the fact that this is totally hands free calling and text. GPS runs through the phone but does reflect on the unit. Great radio for the price.

    Android Auto Stops Working

    Loved this unit when I first purchased it. 30 days after I had it installed Android Auto no longer works. There is no way to get it to connect! Did ALL the trouble shooting stuff suggested on the internet. Checked my phone's settings, tried different USB cables, deleted and reinstalled Android Auto, and NOTHING. Just error messages!! It never connected again. The main reason I bought it was for the interface with my phone which is the one thing that doesn't work. Going to try to return it ASAP!!

    excellent radio, great features... better than pio

    for starters, I'm comparing this to the pioneer avh 500ex and the 1550nex.

    the JVC holds its own with sound.. rich, full music. It has a more detailed equalizer with double the sound options... This radio is fluid, ita controls make sense. the android auto is great, bluetooth works well also.

    the pioneers In this cost range sound good but have terrible functionality. They are 'android compatible' but that means their Bluetooth works and thats all.

    My ONLY hangup with this radio is the volume led lights are blue and the pioneer is whatever you want. the jvc screen is nicer, its apps work, literally no reason to go with any other radio in this class.

    Doesn't always work in reverse (back up camera). Wireless android auto drops out 1 foot away (it says to move closer?)

    Mode switch on steering column doesn't work with stereo, eventhough I bought extra accessories to make that happen I was told.

    Now it's locked up with my dvd stuck in it. I have to put it in reverse to see the home screen. At all other times it's a blank screen. Now with the virus thing I have to wait for best buy to get up and running to take it out. Not a good experience.

    Basic but doesn’t skimp on features.

    It does all the basics. I like the glass capacitive touch screen Vs the plastic resistive touch screens

    Apple CarPlay works well however it does lose the wired connection on occasion may 1/10 times using it. But a simple unplug and plug back in fixes the issue every time. Sound quality is decent but not as good as higher end units. At first the clock would not stay correct but a firmware update from kenwood fixed that issue.

    By far this stereo is amazing! Kenwood never seems to let me down! The Apple car play feature is very useful, especially when using Apple Maps. I recommend this car stereo to anyone looking to upgrade theirs. The slim body is something I like as well, which takes less space.

    It’s versatile

    I like the unit it functions well, however their app for my phone is too hard to get connected and requires you to plug it in to the unit at first to get it to work. Instead of just working with full functions via Bluetooth. Once you get that to work it’s not too bad. The sound is average and it being a DVD player means a lot can play on it. There is another annoying thing is when you put in the usb and are searching folders the folders are not what you named them. Instead they are a number and not in order. Too much to deal with when you’re driving.

    Perfect for what I need!

    It's been MANY years since I went shopping for head units, mainly because stock systems are so great these days. However, I picked up a 1992 MR2 and it definitely needed modernized.

    I was pretty surprised to see how much bang for the buck this unit is. It connects flawlessly with my phone and does a stellar job. I also like the fact that it has an actual knob. Many (most) do not these days.

    Super-happy with this one.

    Great head unit, with a few set backs!

    I bought this head unit because it was a lot of features you were getting for an awesome price. Sound quality and EQ are the best part about this head unit. It connects very fast via Bluetooth and the video quality on the h/u are great quality. The things that aren't the best are the phone call quality and connection. When a phone call comes in or is sent out it will connect the call 90% of the time, 10% of the time it will not connect and I will have to re-dial or answer on my phone itself. After the call ends if I am listening to music through Bluetooth the music takes 2-4min to re-connect and even then I sometimes have to press play on my phone before it starts to play again. Another con is the volume dial is very small and depending on how the dash kit sits it is a pain to get to, I had to purchase a remote on amazon to make it easier.

    Also...if you add a backup camera to this unit be prepared to have a 1-2 second pause (blank screen) while it notifies you to "look at your surroundings before backing up", this only happens if your h/u had just started with the vehicle. This message and pause do not come up if your h/u has been on for more than 5min.

    It is a nice h/u but it is frustrating when you need to make a call and it wont connect and your music wont re-connect after you have completed a call. Some are okay with these issues but it sucks when you are driving and can't really mess with anything. Hope things work out better for you!

    expensive but ok for the buck

    Between 12pm and around 4pm when the sunlight falls directly under the dashboard, it is really difficult to look into the screen. Although it is said to have antireflectant sticker or coating, I continuously have to tilt head to get a proper view of the screen. Thing gets even bad if wearing a polarized sunglasses. I do not have complains over the user interface. It is infact very minimilastic and serves the purpose.

    Stunning sound but greatly relies on good cable

    Great sound, easy to use. It works happily with my infinity speakers and subwoofer. I thing I need to remind everyone who at is iPhone user and is looking at this unit. Quality of the lightning cable plays important role. With stock Apple cable, it works ok, just don’t expect too much out of your system. Once you swap the cable with something like an Audioquest CARBON, it’s like night and day kind of difference.

    Garbage, steer clear!

    Buy something else!

    I was so excited to install this head unit, and despite the negative reviews I wanted to believe mine would be part of the positive reviews.

    TRUST THE NEGATIVE REVIEWS!

    The wifi and Bluetooth on this is beyond shotty. I’ll try to switch it to USB and it’ll take 10 minutes of unplugging, replugging and messing with setting before it recognizes there is a device connected. I spent ~$5000 for a stereo system and install on my Ferrari, and this thing is an absolutel JOKE!

    The rest of my system is amazing. This unit does look nice, but it is severely lacking in functionality and actually very distracting while you’re driving.

    I wish I listened to the negative reviews and purchased something else. Don’t make this mistake!

    Decent when it works

    I bought this unit for the wireless carplay and sleek look, but the experience has been less than stellar. Saying that, when it works, it's brilliant. I haven't really bothered with any of the features outside of Carplay as the UI is extremely cumbersome and the hotspot setup is a pain. Carplay is where the trouble starts however, nine times out of ten it will not start automatically on boot-up, which leads to a trip through several clicks of the base system. I'd rather have saved my money and spent the time it takes getting to Carplay by just plugging into a non-wireless sytem. I also don't understand why these new NEX systems don't offer the ability to customize the splash screen, but that's not too much of a concern. Probably the biggest issue with this system are its touch buttons. In the event that you actually manage to hit the small touch window that activates any of the switches, there is substantial lag in any operation. Adjusting volume is an absolute nightmare and best left to the remote that comes bundled with the device (or steering wheel controls should you be so equipped). Otherwise the system is decent and gets the job done, the screen is bright and even in my convertible in direct sunlight is legible.

    If you can do without wireless carplay, I'd save the money and get another unit. This simply isn't worth the premium for an otherwise lackluster device. Once they sort out the software bugs that may change though.

    Decent with some caveats.

    I picked this up as for a vehicle without CarPlay. I have the AVH-2550NEX wired CarPlay receiver in one of my other vehicles and picked this up in hopes of getting the wireless CarPlay experience.

    Pros:

    - Display is bright and easy enough to use. Compared to another brand and model I picked up to choose between the two, a Kenwood DMX907S, this screen appears brighter than the Kenwood and in terms of touch use, appears to be cleaner. For example, the Kenwood seems to get more "smudgy" than this one, so perhaps Pioneer is using a better screen coating to help with this. While I didn't have a way to measure it, visually, it appears the LCD screen of the Pioneer is closer to the glass than the Kenwood, which might explain its seemingly brighter appearance.

    - Wireless CarPlay connects reliably so far and without issues. (v.1.30 firmware)

    - HD Radio (love the clearer and fuller sound that comes with this)

    - Wired CarPlay/Android Auto with a single port (Kenwood uses two separate USB lines for some reason, with each not playing nicely with the other standard).

    - Fewer "buttons" or touch zones on the face (compared to the 2660NEX), making it less likely you'll press the wrong one while trying to keep your eyes on the road.

    - Customizable home screen (within limits)

    Cons:

    - No mute/attenuate button, also my main gripe with an otherwise enjoyable 2550NEX. Really, Pioneer? Yes, you can press and hold a button for mute to take effect, but if you think about times in your vehicle with a traditional radio when you want silence, you want it to be as simple and reaching out and pushing or twisting the knob. You don't want to be holding a button for two seconds waiting for it to take effect. I know many newer vehicle will have such controls on the steering wheel, but mine doesn't and it's annoying to not have the immediate responsiveness of a volume knob or dedicated mute/attenuate button to remedy that.

    - The new user interface on this model (and it's bigger siblings) is slow. The respective functions, for example, HD Radio, CarPlay, and settings, all tend to work well but the the home screen of the UI/OS takes longer than when it appears to be fully functional. For example, while boot time is about 8 seconds to get you to the warning and home screen, you're left with a bit of a Windows XP experience as you wait for the respective functions of the device to become fully functional. If you select HD Radio or try and adjust the volume up or down, you won't get a response for some time, perhaps as little as 5 seconds or as many as 10-15 seconds. I can appreciate Pioneer's efforts to create a fast boot time but if the system isn't actually functional when the home screen pops up, I would prefer a slightly longer boot time to yield a fully functional home screen.

    -- Per the UI concerns, swiping to different screens feels and looks slow & is at times unresponsive. I'm not sure what the refresh rate is on the screen, but when swiping to another screen it seems as though you can see the sort of flickering you might expect of a slower refresh rate. Pioneer also tries to give that movement an effect, somewhat akin to a slow-close cabinet or dresser drawer. You can make a swift swiping motion, but the movement of the graphics on the screen slows that down with the noted "slow-close" effect. There are also times where multiple attempts to try and swipe to a different screen are needed to get it to do so.

    -- UI Design elements: The home screen is okay and I like that you can move around and decide which "apps" or functions you want on it. For example, a workaround for not having a mute button is to have "Source Off" as a function on the "dock" of the home screen (though if you're in CarPlay or HD Radio and not on the home screen, you have to go thru a step to get there and make use of it). My main gripe with the 2550 and 2660NEX is that you're more limited in what you can change in the bottom and side docks in those UI's. That said, one aspect of the home screen that I want nothing to do with are the suggestions that come up in the main window for whatever is playing. For example, you'll get the album art or graphics for a given HD Radio station, but then it will show two small icons and information suggesting different stations or media based on what you're listening to. It clutters up the home screen and I don't see a use for it. e.g, You more than likely know which radio stations you'd like to listen to and have set as favorites for the radio. I have yet to look into it more closely, but I am left wondering, given the connected nature of the device, if it might also be collecting data to make suggestions for listening when streaming media. e.g., is the UI simply relaying what iTunes, Android, or Alexa are suggesting or is it doing a separate data collection in order to make suggestions? I ask because I imagine Pioneer has limits with what it can do with its own UI. For example, using widgets on the home screen of the receiver as an example, I've got my iPhone wirelessly connected to the vehicle, which pulls and streams all kinds of data to make CarPlay function, but I have to establish a separate hotspot connection to get the Pioneer weather widget to give me any information? Why not do this via the CarPlay connection or is this Pioneer's workaround for limits that perhaps Apple has put on the CarPlay interface? e.g., there is no weather app in CarPlay, likely to help keep your eyes on the road when you can just ask for the conditions via Siri, and, perhaps Apple keeps the iPhone's CarPlay data contained within its own apps. To boil it down, is Pioneer relaying recommendations from my Music app or is it collecting data from what I'm playing?

    -- Last point on the UI: I wish there were a way to do away with the effects imposed on the UI. e.g., the "slow-close" swipe. Give us the option to turn off the eye candy, specifically when the eye candy seems to make the user experience a bit clunky. Just give me/us a smooth swipe that reflects the speed with which I'm trying to do so.

    - The apps or widgets on the home screen have little utility, aside from the time and what is playing. It's nice to see the weather, but the receiver first needs to pair with your phone as a hotspot and this doesn't happen by default. I have to go into my settings on my phone, even though it is set up to be accessible as a hotspot, and into the hotspot feature in order for the device to become visible to the receiver and to make a connection, even after I have already set everything up with the password to do so supposedly automatically. I think it's an issue with iPhones, but still, if I have CarPlay (or Android Auto), I can just do a voice command to have Siri tell me the temperature or forecast. Additionally, having tried to simply remove the smaller widget for what is defaulted to sports, I'm not allowed to resize the clock widget to simply take up the space of both items. e.g., you're forced to have it blank or put a widget in the smaller space. Having a browser built into the UI doesn't make much sense either. I've got a smartphone with native browsers built in but I'm going to use a wifi hotspot and a likely slower response on my receiver for surfing? I'm not sure what Pioneer was thinking with these extra widgets, aside from thinking that if they threw some "chrome" on the UI, people would be attracted to something shiny and new. The one scenario where the data-driven widgets makes sense might be if your vehicle has a hotspot built in and would allow for such data to be pulled automatically.

    - Volume buttons seem slow in response or unresponsive to multiple taps. e.g., If you wanted to tap the volume up or down a set number of times (something I do on the 2550NEX), there isn't a guarantee that you'll get that number of adjustments in the volume. If you have a relatively quick but steady number of taps, the first will typically register while others that follow are not guaranteed. Or to put it another way, the same types of pushes on a mechanical button on my 2550NEX, which register without fail, are not guaranteed when using this device's touch side bar. Ironically, if you tap one of the volume symbols on the side bar and then move your hand to use the volume adjustment tools that pop up on the screen, the adjustments appear to be much more responsive and reliable as compared to the side bar. Really, Pioneer, the on-screen volume adjustments are more reliable than the dedicated ones on the side bar? Touching back on my "pro" from above, it's only so helpful to have fewer touch zones to work with on the side bar, helping to avoid touching the wrong one, if the responsiveness of the side bar isn't what it needs to be. In terms of UI responsiveness, if you catch the system "thinking" when you press and hold a volume symbol on the side bar, it might take a second or two before it registers and begins to adjust. I did find that pressing and holding the volume symbols offered a consistent volume adjustment, but if there is a delay in response before you start hearing the adjustment beeps through the speakers, it might throw off how much of an adjustment you're looking for.

    Why am I giving 3 stars and not lower for all the detailed "Cons" I've offered and likely to keep it? For my purposes, the noted issues are acceptable because my primary uses will avoid a number of them. Similar to my use of the 2550NEX, the majority of my use is done either in HD Radio or in CarPlay, or in CarPlay while listening to HD Radio. In this sense, the home screen is a launch point to get into those functions, but I'm not compelled when listening to the radio to leave that interface and continue listening on the home screen (and get annoyed at the cluttered suggested stations that pop up). My main functionality gripe in keeping it will be the unresponsive UI until everything is fully loaded. Hopefully a firmware upgrade will help.

    Disappointing

    For the money this was not worth it & I am returning it....it is not user friendly, the volume buttons were very small & the touch screen is not sensitive enough (you have to touch the screen many times before it responds) Also, the installer put the microphone on top of my dash. Didn’t even try to hide it. I went to another Best Buy to talk with someone & a supervisor in the auto section said that the microphone should have been placed in a different area. So if you are planning on having Best Buy install, pick a good one!

    Great when every thing works right but...

    I bought two of these to replace the 1330NEX and 1440NEX I had in my vehicles. Both of those models were great and I never had any issues. The main reasons why I changed was because I wanted the better capacitive screen, the smaller chassis and the wireless CarPlay. My initial impressions were good. The screen is definitely better but the new interface takes a while to get used to, in fact it has a lot of stuff that I think makes it unnecessarily complicated. The new operating system also has a lot of glitches, as if they rushed this to market. The wireless CarPlay sometimes doesn’t connect and various systems disappear and reappear. I also don’t see the real need for HDMI since I can play movies from USB, and I’ll probably never use the Alexa.

    I’m hoping they come out with future upgrades to fix the issues I’m having because I really like the appearance of this unit. Right now if you just want a better screen, don’t need a small chassis and can do without wireless CarPlay, I’d suggest the much cheaper DMH-2660NEX.

    Great touch screen Apple Car play stereo ;

    For the most part this Apple car play stereo is great. Connects with my phone almost as soon as I start the ignition. The issues is there has been a few times were it noes not connect at all. I think for the price of the unit all these bugs should be fixed . Maybe in a $259 unit I but not in something of this price.

    Very cheap quality

    Very cheap radio can’t turn volume past 33 before I get all of this static in my speakers. I had to keep resetting the time and it would not save it at all. The usb mirroring would not work and then the screen started getting lines in it until it turned completely white and stayed that way now I have to return it for a better brand. Waste of time and money! Only had it a week. Put it in a 2019 Kia Optima.

    Decent radio for the price.

    Pretty easy to set up. I expected the mirroring option from an Android phone to be full screen but it's not. Have had no issues with calls. Connects quickly to phone once car is turned on.

    Sound is crisp clear boosted actual loudness of speakers in camaro. Wiring was a job but simple if familiar with Wiring. Mirroring of phone only for Android but newer versions offer iPhone compatibility overall great

    Great inexpensive stereo

    This is a great stereo that does what I need it to do. I have a backup camera, output to a 2nd TV, able to screen cast from my phone, it all works great. It is less expensive then other brands that do the same. I have not had any issues with it.

    I got mislead at first when I bought this item. A Bestbuy staff person lead me to buy a wrong installation kit. So I almost was going to return it. Then I got a second opinion and it was simple and the installation was easy. So I am now a very happy customer. Thank you.

    Not pleased.

    Would not recommend. Can't even keep the correct time. Keeps taking 43 minutes of the time. Why 43 minutes? Also, get pixelization when going into Android Auto. I have tried resetting the radio but doesn't help. Tying to see what recourse I have with JVC and Best Buy.

    Don't waste your money on this one.

    I must start this by saying that all I ever use is radios made by jvc. I was replacing a jvc double din that came out in 2016. This new unit didnt have half the features my old one did. To start the clock will not keep time. It constantly resets. The audio quality is terrible for music,podcasts, and especially phone calls. The mirror mode feature is a huge joke of a feature. 90 percent of the apps you want to use are block by the jvc mirror mode app you are forced to use. Android auto has high hopes but doesn't support many apps for music or podcasts. Also you are constantly stuck on google maps and can't exit from it. So it you have a data cap on your phone you will run through it quick. You cant touch the screen in a circle to turn up the volume like my last unit. Also if you have a song or podcast with a long name it will not scroll at all. Save your money and the head aches and dont buy this unit.Oh and the worst part was while trying to update the firmware the update failed and it bricked the unit. I searched for hours online till i finally found a way to fix it by luck.

    Do not recommend

    I have been very disappointed with this radio. The clock time does not hold, and I end up correcting it more than once a day. The radio shut off and restarted itself while I was driving. I have also encountered the screen fritzing and showing only scrambled colors for multiple minutes at a time on more than one occasion.

    Nice stereo for a good price.

    This is on the M560BT unit. It looks nice in the car and I have not had any issues with it. I used the screen to change the volume and that works fine. I have no issue with the date changing as others have stated.

    I added the steering wheel harness so I can change volume, mute the radio, seek preset up, and seek presets down. All this works fine

    The screen responds well to touches and is clear.

    Apple car play was easy to set up and I have used it most of the time.

    Also installed a backup camera which it responds to with a great picture. It would be nice if it allowed you to reverse the picture as some backup cameras do not properly display the image behind you.

    It is half as deep as other radios. This is nice as you have more space behind the radio to house your new harnesses in.

    Android Auto FTW! Good sound quality too

    I struggled with the dizzying array of choices for double din head units, but I ended up selecting this one due to an open box being available at my local Best Buy.

    That was an excellent decision. This radio has exceeded my expectations in every way. Typically I add an amp or two to all of my vehicles, and externally amplify all of my highs and add a sub. When I saw that this unit supplies 22w RMS x4, I doubted I'd be satisfied with the audio quality. I was proven wrong, with the factory 6 speaker system in my '08 Fusion, it sounds surprisingly good. Deep full bass and clear treble all the way up to 3/4 volume on the unit, from the tuner or over Android Auto.

    Android auto seems to be quite worthwhile as well. I struggled with whether I'd use the features enough to justify the additional cost, but I will now that I know how well it works. It can understand me clearly, even with my phone inside the center compartment where I ran the usb cable from the radio.

    If you're looking for a Double Din, touchscreen head unit with Android Auto, look no further. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend.

UI on actual radio is unattractive but if you plan on using it for(wired) CarPlay and android auto I can assure you it’ll be a nice purchase.

    not worth $300+

    This radio gets the job done, but there is 2 things that makes it not worth $300 +. one: is that when changing to different apps, or different programs on the radio, its kinda slow or doesnt do what its supposed to and not in mirror mode. Its when your using the radio itself. two: The clock ALWAYS CHANGES ON ITS OWN. Every time I need to change the time no matter what. This is extremely frustating for a radio that is, again, More than $300+ . I should have no issues especially with the time. i would not recommend this. unless it drops and it only cost about $100.

    It has everything I was looking for

    Apple play, Android Mirroring,

    touch screen, Bluetooth, CD & DVD.

    Great unit, Great sound, had it installed by Best buy.. they did a awesome job installing it! It looks factory you would never know it's aftermarket, they even hooked up my backup camera and stirring wheel controls. My only complaint is some glare from the sun.

    But over all! Good unit!

    Could be better

    After much searching for an affordable reputable brand stereo, I settled on this one. I had a few important traits I was looking for. It needed the ability to play CDs, be Bluetooth enabled, and to be able to connect to my phone to display GPS on the screen. Android Auto was the promised solution for this. But from the get-go it was flaky. While it will do Bluetooth to my phone for playing music and audio apps you have to plug into the USB port for GPS. After connecting to Android Auto after a couple of minutes it would crash and you'd have to start all over again. By this time you're now driving down the road and have to try to get it going again while moving which was presenting an even worse scenario than just using my phone only for GPS from the beginning. I don't know why Android Auto keeps crashing? Another minor frustration is it takes about 10-15 seconds to boot up which seems like a long time when you want to set music or book app up before you start driving.

    OK for a quick replacement.

    Radio replaced 2004 GMC YUKON original radio. It gave me Apple Car Play (with hardwire cable). I thought the original radio was bad, but it turned out to be the original amplifier. I “think” radio crashed on me one time after 30 minutes of play, but I need more screen time to be sure. Not sure if sound is as good as original radio ??? (But it’s close.)

    Nice radio, awkward volume control

    Love the radio, easy to use except for the volume. It’s kind of a pain to turn the volume up or down while you’re driving since you have to push the button. Just seems to be awkward to me. Wish it was a knob instead or had the switch on my steering wheel. Other than that it’sa great radio.

    XM tuner not included

    First off let me say it's better than what I had before. I still had the basic knob radio that came with my Charger in 2010. But... Its still pretty basic.. can't watch videos unless it's a DVD and DVDs are pretty much obsolete in my home. Soo it just plays music. Also should've read that the XM tuner doesn't come with it so I have to go back and pay another $100 to buy the tuner and have geek squad install :(

    Very Good But Not Great

    Installed this Boss BE7ACP in my 2017 Subaru Crosstrek and overall, I'm happy with it. It has a nice, intuitive GUI and the screen responds quickly. The sound is also pretty good and the unit has several preset equalizer settings allows for user settings. The main reason I wanted this was for the Android Auto and Apple Car Play. It functions quite well for this, however, I'm disappointed with the map resolution and brightness in Android Auto. In sunlight it can be difficult to see no matter how bright you make the screen settings. It also has an annoying habit of not going back to Android Auto after the back up camera has been activated. It returns you to the main menu and you have to select Android Auto again. Lame. If you have the budget for a higher end headunit, you should probably spring for it and get a better screen, but this isn't a bad buy at all.

    5/5 Stereo

    I LOVE this system! I was a little hesitant to buy it because of some reviews, but so far I’m extremely pleased with my purchase. I did the install myself with the help of my brother. We snipped all the wires in my stock stereo which made the process so much longer, so if you this yourself I suggest just buying an adapter instead. However, if you wire it all yourself and have issues getting it to turn on with the car, I suggest wiring the “accessory” wire to the cigarette lighter.

    This stereo works like a charm and I hardly notice that the screen isn’t “HD”. You have to look pretty closely to see any pixelation. The Apple CarPlay works awesome, too. I love that I can pivot and slide the screen up and down as well. It really allows you to get the screen in a comfortable position. I really feel like my car has been upgraded with this stereo. I installed this in a 2014 Jeep Patriot, btw.

    Good dash radio

    This is a good in dash radio, I like how it connects to the Bluetooth and charges and has navigation. The only drawback is the navigation will literally take you the long route even if you put in the fastest route. If you use google maps on phone and then compare it with the boss, the boss literally adds an hour to your drive time. I’m still trying to find out if that is fixable.

    A great radio for low budget

    I purchased this radio to replace the Aging cassette tape deck CD player that was factory installed. It's a 2004 car so I did not want to spend in lot of money on it but just to update the car. All of the options seem to work okay Bluetooth, the radio phone connectivity. The only issue is Ndrive for the GPS it badly needs to be updated and I'm having a hard time finding out how to do it I have contacted the folks at ndrive and I have got no response. I think you cannot go wrong with this purchase unless you're going to be totally dependent on the GPS system.

    Great system for hands free phone calls

    I’ve used this system for 2 months and my review on the product is very good radio and hands free phone conversation the gps is fine but takes longer then normal to receive a sa. Signal. I haven’t really tried the DVD functions but only once and it seemed fine I also purchased a rear view camera and that functions great. One this I wished that would be larger was the time of day when the unit is on as that’s the only clock for my vehicle.

    Good for basic radio NOT for GPS

    If you want a basic radio, this is ok although there are much better ones less expensive. If you want to use the GPS, I have the following warnings: These maps are out of date, forget updating them since Planet Audio blames NDrive and NDrive doesn't respond EVER. There is no way of updating maps, and regardless of what the description says, no traffic updates. THe best Planet Audio will do is warranty replace the radio which will accomplish nothing since you will get the same maps with the new radio and still not be able to update them nor get traffic. Look elsewhere for GPS radio

    Planet Radio GPS/Stereo

    I think Best Buy did a good job of installing it, but one thing they didn't do, was give me the box and owners manual after installation. I had to go back to the store to get it the next day, and they dug it out of the trash. They should always ask if the purchaser wants it, I had to consult the manual to do some of the set up.

    I generally like the Planet Audio Radio GPS, it sounds good and I like the GPS. But one thing I do not like about it, is that even though the GPS display does dim when headlights are turned on, the brightness of the display isn't adjusted by my interior light brightness control and the display of the GPS is too bright at night,

    Unit not installed in vehicle yet. And warranty.

    The installer Paul has helped me very much so far to speak with me about putting a pre rf amp in my vehicle. Nice guy. I do have concern with the supposed 4 year warranty I bought because since the 1st year is under warranty and as I read Best Buy warranty, it does not cover factory 1st year. So effectively it is only a 3 year warranty.

    GPS function

    Not good product. For no reason it will take you around a block or many blocks. It is unable to locate many streets. It announces turns after you have gone through the intersection. Does not indicate which side of the street your location is located. This is not just isolated issues, that would happen with the TomTom GPS. This has happened on every trip I have taken

    Solid Wireless Android Auto Performance

    I am normally a Kenwood/Alpine guy, and admittedly I hadn't previously heard about the BOSS brand before making this purchase. I was looking for wireless Android Auto and decided to give this unit a try, given the considerable difference in price from other brands offering the same feature.

    The installation was straight-forward and relatively simple in my 2008 Tundra CrewMax. In fact, I think I spent about the same amount of time wiring the adapter harness to the head unit and the actual install. Fast forward to a completed installation, I fired up the unit and proceeded to pair the unit with my Note8, which was a breeze.

    While I had no prior experience with Android Auto, I had no idea what to expect, and since I also have not used a BOSS product before, I wondered about how well it would perform. Well, over the course of my first week with the unit, I'd driven roughly 300 miles, half of which was a brief stint out of town over a weekend. The unit performed admirably throughout the entire trip. I experienced zero disconnects while playing music (using the built-in Samsung Music app) and making phone calls. Google Maps was equally flawless and worked just as well as it does on my phone. However, if I can have a complaint or two, it is slow to connect wirelessly to Android Auto, which is roughly 30 seconds. The display also easily gets drowned out during the day and is hard to see with sunglasses on. But In the end, the fact that I don't ever have to take my phone out of my pocket when I drive far outweighs any of my gripes.

    The unit itself has all the base features I would expect to find in a head unit. EQ, speaker balance, subwoofer xover and trim, etc. You can adjust the various input levels/trim (speech, media, usb, etc.) to get just the right balance between sources, So when Google voice assistant or Maps interrupts music playback, you don't end up jumping in your seat.

    I haven't yet added an aftermarket amp, but so far the internal amp is doing a fine job driving Pioneer 6x9s in my front, and Pioneer 6.5" in the back of my cab. I was half-expecting to get muddy sound and bass, but so far the bass is detailed, even somehwhat articulate, which i was not expecting at all. And while there is plenty of bass for me, I should note that I don't listen to particularly heavy bass music and listen to mostly Rock when I drive. While I will be adding an external amp (likely a mini) just to get some extra juice, I almost feel like I don't need one. This was a surprise as I didn't no what to expect from the internal amps, particularly from a brand that I've never owned.

    Overall I'm very happy with the purchase, even if for the first time in years I now have an aftermarket head-unit that doesn't have the Alpine or Kenwood moniker.

    Not All I Expected

    Documentation is insufficient to deal with product quirks and detailed online information doesn't exist. Irritatingly, the radio insists on always starting with the car and WiFi apps used on Android Auto such as Google Maps can't be turned off easily to avoid data overuse. On several occasions, the volume automatically went to maximum when the car was turned off (the default is for the unit to remain on for one minute after removing the car key.) These difficulties may be solvable but there's nothing that tells you how to do it. Overall, this was a frustrating and disappointing purchase.

    It works, nothing worth writing home about.

    Has wireless Car Play. Other than that, the screen is high gloss so driving in any high light makes it difficult to see the screen due to all the reflection. While audio plays fine, car play phone calls are always quiet. You have to max out volume to just barely hear the other person. When you get your next call you have to remember to raise the volume again because it does not retain the volume settings.

    Simple and too the point !!

    This little unit surprised me, right out of the box it was a clear cut install like all others, one thing I liked was the fact that it has power outputs for the cameras (front and rear), needed to replace a broken unit wanted some CarPlay action! Get it all buttoned up and paired Bluetooth and boom!!!! It automatically saw I had an iPhone and asked to pair wireless CarPlay. No extra steps nothing but fluid magic!! Touch screen is super responsive and clear ! My install was at night and let me tell you, the image from my reverse camera came in clear!! Boot times aren’t too bad give or take 10 sec and another 5-7 to connect to Bluetooth but in a pinch, radio on reverse selected camera on, no need for full boot for that ! Tweaked the audio settings a bit, got some clean sound and hooked up my bass amp and rolled with it ! Much better sound than my last unit!

    Not a sirius/xm unit. Will need a stand alone.

    Great stereo, not a very well thought through listing. My issue is not with the unit but with best buys website. It clearly shows this as a siriusxm ready radio, even in the filters. Unknown to me, i bought it from, "the tech experts" best buy, it is not in fact siriusxm ready. Does not have that capability at all. In fact planet audio doesnt even make them to be siriusxm ready. So why is it listed this way. Idk. After 3 hiurs on the phone with best buy customer service and being given the run around in the store i picked it up at, the inly thing they can offer is a return. Too bad i paid someone to install the radio and have to pay to get it uninstalled if i want to return it. So now im stuck without sirius, in which thats what i primarily listen to. Product description is completely wrong.

    Where do I start with this unit this unit built occasionally lock and freeze on me. If I went in reverse the system would start to skip constantly until I cut the vehicle off to reset it. Occasionally just riding around it would start beating very loud it may not playing music or anything again until I cut the vehicle off.

    Ordered through the store. Installers called me that half the screen was broken. Dont waste your time. Time will no doubt bring more problems. Swapped for a pioneer.

    Ok stereo, but doesn't have ApplePlay like it says

    This stereo isn't bad, but I bought it because the site said it has Apple CarPlay but after it was installed, I found out it didn't. Had to pay another hundred dollars to get one that would do what I wanted to.

    Radio reception very bad !

    Radio won't hardly pick up local stations, manual that came with it is close but not for this unit, loudness button doesn't work on CD or bluetooth, replacing with a pioneer radio, should have spent the $50 xtra bucks in the first place !!!

    Good features

    The features are great but because of its depth it wouldn’t fit in my 2008 keep patrio. I wished it would because of all of the options.

    too many compromises

    i feel i made a major mistake selecting this unit (INE-W977HD). i selected the best car stereo in the display; well the most expensive one ($1299.99). i assumed it was the latest & greatest. it has 7inch touch screen, built in GPS ,& ability to add a backup camera. it takes a few seconds for reverse cam to display on the screen, you have to wait again for the red,yellow,green lines to be drawn on the screen. maybe 1 out of 5 calls has a issue (most common, you can hear them, but they cant hear you. majority of settings are disabled when the car is not in park AND the park brake is engaged.you have to have the car in park. then engage park brake, release the park brake, then engage the park brake a second time. NOW the 'setting's icon is no longer greyed out. i understand driving while distracted is serious issue. but if you press the GPS button while driving you have to read and accept a full paragraph of terms while driving at any speed. this stereo came out in 2017. i wish i did my homework before this purchase

    Save your money!!

    Had the Pioneer 8400 navigation radio system. Had wireless Apple Car Play. Liked the wireless Car Play since I use the navigation for work. Started acting up, navigation going out, so forth. So I exchanged it for this Alpine unit. I heard good things about Alpine from other people. This unit was $300.00 more than the Pioneer. Alpine stated Innovation. After they put it in, found out that it wasn't wireless had to plug in using the only USB cable that came with the unit. (Pioneer has 2). Have an older style ipod that I plug into the 2nd USB so I can play ipod through steering wheel controls. Can't do that with this unit. Just has the AUX. speaker jack that only plays when you put radio in AUX mode and have to setup manually on ipod every time. The Navigation is fair. Has multiple trip function that is a plus, but couldn't get it to work properly. Ended up going back to the Pioneer. Figured I might have just had a faulty unit last time. Alpine states innovation, HA. Not with this unit. Save your money!!! Seems that the 8400 is the only Navigation unit that I found for the price That comes with wireless Apple Car Play.

    Mostly happy

    Unit seems to work well and the installation looks clean and blends with the dashboard. Unit however could use an update for the GPS system and can't get rid of the construction and gas station icons even though the unit shows that they are turned off.

    Great choice for basic Apple CarPlay upgrade

    Great head unit. Updated stock radio to this and it’s a nice upgrade. BB tech was awesome, explained everything clearly, added a part I asked for that I didn’t know I needed (relay for steering wheel controls), and got it done fast (same day). It’s a basic unit but all I run is Apple CarPlay and it’s perfect for that. Runs ACP and stock local radio simultaneously which is nice. No complaints.

    Radiofor2014Mustang

    I could not be happier! This radio has absolutely everything: CD, satellite radio, Bluetooth connected to my iPhone showing whatever you have (Pandora, maps, e-mails, text msgs…), also the tires status, gas, GPM, back camera…and an extra below pocket to place your phone or to charge it!

    Joshua was the best! He was assertive, knowledgeable, and patient when showing all features! He did a great job! It’s not for free that this Geek Squad is the #1 in Florida! Kudos for Josh!!!
