Our take on the iLuv iMM190

by Ralph Graves

Keep things simple: iLuv's alarm clock app turns your iPod touch or iPhone into a personalized alarm clock. And when you place it in the iLuv dock, you've got an ideal clock alarm for your nightstand.

The iLuv easy-to-view clock app
Download iLuv's free alarm clock app from the iTunes® App Store to get things started. It lets your iPhone or iPod touch sport a large numeric display with easy-to-read numbers. You'll also see customizable weather information, and a choice of alarms. The app also integrates your player into the dock's alarm clock features.

One versatile clock dock
The dock's built-in speaker provides plenty of sound for your player's music — as well as the alarm. Not ready to wake up? There's a snooze button on the top of the dock. Set the iMM190 on your nightstand one of two ways. It can hold your player vertically or horizontally so you can watch videos and activate the alarm clock app.

Your iPhone or iPod touch automatically charges when the dock is plugged into an AC outlet. Turn the dock into a portable alarm clock by powering it with 6 "AA" batteries. You can also listen to music from your other portables through the dock's auxiliary input.

Note: Apple firmware updates may change functionality results (you may need to reset your iPod or iPhone).

Answering iPhone: If you receive an incoming call on your docked iPhone, you may answer the call in one of two ways.

  • Remove the iPhone from the 30-pin connector in the iMM190 and use your iPhone manually.
  • Leave your iPhone in the dock and use the speaker phone feature.

Note: The speakers on the iMM190 are not in use when operating the speaker phone function. Sound will only be hear through your iPhone.

iLuv App: Once you have downloaded the iLuv Clock App from the Apple iTunes store onto your iPod touch or iPhone, your docked iPod touch or iPhone becomes a big display digital alarm clock with responsive visual equalizer display for the iLuv App Station (iMM190). The iLuv App provides multiple alarms so you can wake-up to your favorite music stored on your iPhone or iPod touch. With the iLuv Clock App loaded onto your iPod touch or iPhone, the following functions are available and controlled directly through the downloaded App on your docked iPhone or iPod touch.

  • Time Display:
    • can be formatted in a 12-hour or 24-hour format
    • can be displayed vertically or horizontally
    • choose different background themes
    • dimmer control

    • set recurring settings (Every-day, Weekdays, Weekends)
    • wake to a choice from unique alarm sounds and music choices from your iPod touch or iPhone
  • Selective Snooze Time:
    • selectable Snooze times - 7, 9, 12, 15, or 30 minutes
  • Music Playback:
    • basic audio playback control (Play/Pause, Next, Previous, Fast-Forward, Rewind)
    • display of song name

Note: The iLuv Clock App only works the iPod touch and iPhone. With all other compatible iPod models, the iMM190 only functions as a simple speaker system, and playback is controlled using the click-wheel or touch-screen of the iPod/iPhone.

Snooze Function: When the alarm sounds, press the "Snooze" button on the iMM190 to delay the alarm for 7, 9, 12, 15, or 30 minutes. All other clock and alarm function are set up using the iLuv Clock App downloaded to your docked iPod touch or iPhone.

It's ok but there are better ones out there for iPhone 4

Written By Steve G, San Tan Valley, AZ on Saturday, September 03, 2011
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
Crutchfield says it's compatible with the Apple iPhone 4. While technically true, the app you need to exploit all of the features of the radio isn't. It won't play the iPod music from within the app. It only will play music when clicking on the phone's iPod icon.

Also, there's no way to dim the clock display at night. It's pretty bright and I'd you don't sleep with lights on, it'll get annoying.

These are more knocks on the app than the radio, but the radio really needs the app to appreciate what the radio can do.

Amazing Quality For The Price

Written By Tammie, Beaufort, SC on Friday, January 07, 2011
I purchased this speaker for my ipod touch about 6 months ago and was absolutely amazed by the sound quality that came out of it. There is no static noise in the background like you get with most of the other inexpensive ipod speakers and yet it doesn't take up that much counter space at all. The ONLY downfall that I've found is that you can't use it with an ipod cover. But how hard is it to take the ipod cover off and on. Definitely a great buy for the price!
