Amazing head unit for the price
1998 Dodge Neon
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
Ease of Use
After nearly a decade, and a couple different vehicles, my other head unit finally took a dump on me. i went online and found a well reviewed bluetooth head unit, and this was it. my last car stereo cost me $260ish, and i have to say, you get much more for your money now. this stereo sounds great. i can hardly wait to hook up some amplifiers again. having an iphone, i love the USB and bluetooth features. they're both very quick to read and begin playing audio. i bought this for the bluetooth feature, but i more often than not end up using USB. One cool set of features is that when you're connected via bluetooth, the radio will display your approximate battery status and your signal status. it won't show separate bars for signal strength, but will blink when you're in questionable service areas. good to know if you're streaming audio, or in the middle of a call. i mounted the microphone in the middle of my dash and im afraid that it receives too much wind interference there. im going to try mounting it on the headliner where it's out of the air current and i'll test it again. although longwinded, i can't say enough good things about this stereo for the price. Alpine for life.
Pros: ease of connection, interfaces beautifully with iPhone, surprisingly clear audio for the price.
Cons: i can't honestly think of any cons. i didnt have many expectations upon purchase of this, and it hasn't really left me wanting anything more. it doesn't seem to be displaying the artist/track names though. not sure if there's settings i need to mess with to make that happen.
