Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I ordered two of these units. One for my wife and myself. As the previous reviewer mentions the directions were a bit ridiculous however we were able to figure out what needed to be done. Since that time we have been extremely pleased with the versatility of the unit. Being able to listen to the music on the headphones or through our cars auxillary input is very convenient. Thanks once again Crutchfield for another statisfying purchase.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The first one that we sent for did not work correctly, but, as usual, Crutchfield, makes it easy to return, allowed us to send it back for one that finally did work and does work well. However, if you should buy this JVC be prepared for that fact that the directions are terrible because it's made in China and they do not understand directions. #1 says" turn on the unit with pressing and holding" -whatever that means. It should say "turn on the unit and then hold on to the call button" We called Crutchfield technical help and they even had some problems understanding. But, the tech was able to help us pair the unit. Once again, I am so happy to purchase from Crutchfield as they are always helpful.
