Big screen, big fun

If you're fed up with squinting at a tiny display to discover song titles or see who's calling you, you'll appreciate Axxera's AV6118Bi touchscreen receiver. The bright 6.2" display lets you control all your media, including streaming wireless audio and hands-free calling using Bluetooth®. You'll enjoy cool new entertainment options without breaking the bank, too.

Bluetooth® for calls and music

This Axxera lets your stream music from any Bluetooth-equipped device that's paired to the receiver, including music stored on the phone and from Internet radio stations like Pandora® and Spotify®. Hands-free calling cuts down on distractions — a big plus for safety. Axxera also built in a sensitive Bluetooth microphone into the receiver's faceplate for a simpler installation.

Ready for your music?

When it's time to enjoy your own music, you can slide in just about any disc, even a recordable CD or DVD loaded with MP3 files. The USB port, micro-SD card slot, and two auxiliary inputs offer other options for checking out all your media. The 6.2" screen works as a great display for system and song info, and you can also view movies and video on it when your car is parked. If you want to share the fun, you can install a rear video screen and play movies on the go to keep your backseat crew happy. They can even control DVD playback using the included wireless remote control.

Enhancing your music

The AV6118Bi includes a 7-band equalizer with seven EQ presets for refining your sound. If you want to add some impact, a full set of preamp outputs makes it easier to connect amplifiers for your speakers and a subwoofer.

Want to keep your car's steering wheel audio controls?

In most cars, you'll need an adapter to retain those controls with this car stereo. Connect a few wires, then program the adapter for your particular car and radio, and you'll retain the convenience of your steering wheel controls. You'll see the adapters that work with your vehicle when you add this receiver to your cart.

Bluetooth note: Use of this receiver's Bluetooth features will depend upon your phone's Bluetooth capabilities. Learn more in our article explaining Bluetooth profiles.

iPod/smartphone note: If you're going to use your iPod or smartphone with this receiver, be sure to check "Details" for compatibility information.

    Installed in our Camper to replace the cheapo one that came with it. This radio has great sound and makes the camper speakers sound amazing. Bluetooth microphone is awesome picks up from across the camper. Plays DVDs no problem. Had to modify the giant hole from previous radio to mount this one. Still have to putty the old screw holes to complete the project.

    Pros: Big icons...big sound....perfect price

    Cons: Non that I can think of as of yet.

    For the money, you can't beat this radio. Installation of this radio was straight forward and simple. The sound quality was better than my factory radio and the easy to view screen and ease of programming is good. I did have some issues with getting the steering wheel controls to operate but contacting the customer service proved once again why I choose Crutchfield for all of my media applications.

    Pros:

    Cons: I wasn't happy with having to download an APP for my phone just so the phone would work with the stereo and the app needs to include more features such as accessing you contacts list and one touch calling but, for the money you can't have everything.

    Really Great Unit for the PRICE

    Crutchfield customer from Rockford, MI on 7/20/2019

    2006 Toyota Tacoma

    Verified customer (What's this?)
    Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

    Once again Crutchfield has not led me astray. The information that they provided for the installation of the Axxera AV6118Bi was right on!!! It took me longer to make the wiring harness connections than to install the unit. As for the Axxera, it has worked like a charm. Having two other vehicles (each one different) it only took me a couple of trips to get used to the upgrade. It was installed in a 2006 Toyota truck, the easiest install that I have ever had in my over 60 years of life. Thanks for the recommendation and help.

    "Connecting to Axxera iPlug app" then back to radio. Every time I connect to Bluetooth. This is a minor inconvenience. Otherwise a great head unit.

    Pros: Easy install Responsive touch screen Easy to navigate interface

    Cons: Bluetooth is kinda spotty, never drops connection but auto connect and Bluetooth launch needs work

    As bad as you'd think.

    Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

    Spend the extra 20-50$ and get something brand name, it'll do what you need it to but it'll annoy you the whole time. The "app" it uses for bluetooth is annoying, lowers music volume when backing up,sound quality is what you'd expect from an off brand radio/as good as stock, touch screen is whack, looks cheap, and you're going to want more features. If you're tech savy you're going to want Google Maps, Spotify and Android Auto, even if you dont think so now. A good Multi-Media Player is twice the price but a million times more enjoyable, dont cheap out, you'll only be paying twice. Have had this for 3 months and just installed a JVC KW-M750BT which I'm thrilled with already.

    Pros: Does what you want it to.

    Cons: Does not do them well.

    Verified customer (What's this?)
    Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

    Packed with a lot of features for the price. I have an older Axxera in a different vehicle, so I was pretty confident that I would like this unit. I especially like that the AV6118Bi has the front mounted micro SD slot. I have this mounted in a work truck, and the flush SD looks far more durable than having a thumb drive sticking out on the dash. Fairly intuitive controls, and the touch screen makes for an easy operator interface. There is also an app available that allows you to use your phone as the remote. I also love being able to Bluetooth stream music and podcasts from my phone, and that it will pause them if the phone rings, no more missed calls!

    Impressive. Impressively bad. I either got two dogs effective ones in a row or that's just their quality. Crutchfield was great to work with in fixing the problem. Ordering a differentiations radio through them. From faulty internal grounds to shoddy Bluetooth, this radio has it all. The faulty ground cost me a subwoofer from distorting without me hearing it until it was much too late. Appreciate the the fog machine in the back of my car from the cooked coils. 0/10 would not recommend to an enemy.

    Pros: Cheaper than dirt

    Cons: You get what you pay for. Dirt.

    Verified customer (What's this?)
    Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

    This product on paper seems great. All the features you could want at a cheap price but when you actually receive and install the unit it is nothing but inconvenience after inconvenience. 1. Every single time the vehicle is started you have to click a button to go through a list of inputs in order to put the stereo into "Bluetooth" or "iPod" 2. Auto-connect feature. This feature sounds great by in reality the implementation is terrible. Every time my phone comes in range with the stereo there is a popup on screen for about 5 seconds that says connecting and then after your connected, if you where in Bluetooth mode the device is put back into radio FM/AM mode so you have to click back through the menu all over again. 3. Music cutting out. In Bluetooth mode, the music has a little cut or break in it every 20 seconds on repeat. You can absolutely count on this and in iPod or USB mode the cut is every 8-10 seconds. 4. Static in the music. There are random pops of static and interference in the music 5. Scroll wheel for volume constantly falls off when used 6. Backup camera cuts in and out of video In order to play music from bluetooth, it is a tedious 10 second process every time you turn on your vehicle. The music quality is not good (pops and crackles in music). Poor build quality. All in all, this is a terrible unit and I am sorry for anyone who goes through what I do on a daily basis with this joke of a stereo. Probably leaving something out.

    Pros: plays music

    Cons: everything about this product

    Bluetooth drops the signal often. Also since day one the knob for the volume only works when it wants too. We have to use the remote to turn the volume up and down. You can spin the volume knob all you want and it rarely changes the volume. We should've spent more for a better head unit.

    Pros: Cheap price.

    Cons: Cheap unit.

    Spend the money and get a better brand stereo. As many have stated, you have to connect the bluetooth each time the radio /key is turned off. Also, it requires that you install their app to connect to bluetooth. It's ridiculous.

    Pros: Big screen, plays music.

    Cons: Requires app to connect to bluetooth You have to reconnect to bluetooth each time the radio/key is turned off.

    Very cheap low end unit. Wasn't expecting greatness, but this went below my expectations. Very clunky interface, volume will not keep constant and likes to mute itself when turning on. BT interface link causes the unit to pause while it connects, no audio or backup camera input until it reconnects a known device. Steering wheel controls function, but the buttons are not correct. Run, don't walk, away from this unit. Very regretful purchase.

It does exactly what I wanted: plays USb and SD-Card, and hooks up with bluetooth. The best aspect of the purchase was the website. I was abe to easily navigate through the bewildering array of stereos, and get details on + stereo detailed specs and functionalities + compatibility to my vehicle + mounting details + what wiring looms were available, and what the loom offered in terms of retained functionality + total pricing for the various options Having decided on a purchase, I was extremely pleased to see the offer for complete clip and forget loom to interface between my vehicle (Buick Enclave CXL) and the new stereo, for an extremely reasonable price. I was extremely pleased about the support, the information for tracking, etc. and the speed the stereo arrived. As promised, installation was amazingly simple, less than 30 minutes from start to tools away. I managed to not quite seat one of the clips properly, and the support ans suggestions from the help service quickly had it sorted. I recommend them highly.

    Horrible sound quality

    I'm giving this 2 stars only because it powers on and sound comes out. The UI is clunky and slow to start. To skip most of the complaining I'll skip to the worst one. The built in amplifier is awful. As soon as I turn up up past 9 I get massive "hiss" coming from the stereo. I thought it was my amp, so I unplugged it to test. Nope! It is coming from the stereo. This was wired by Crutchfield when I ordered it. I've had this since December, and I hate it. I will have to spend some money to get quality as I should've known in the first place.

    Pros: It powers on

    Cons: Everything else

    Reciever seems great but has one major flaw. It will not work with the recommended pac wiring harness to maintain steering wheel controls. So, if you are buying with that in mind you may want to consider a different unit. I have a lot of experience installing and have never run into issues with pac so it is definitely the receiver. Crutchfield tech support confirmed this. "Its not your vehicle or the pac harness, it's the radio." If you dont care about the steering wheel controls everything else seems very good and is user friendly. The built in mic works well for calls and bluetooth connectivity is good.

    Great stereo for the price. Only drawback is every time it turns on it defaults to radio instead of remembering what you used last. Ie. not much radio in my area so I only use Bluetooth and have to select it every time then switch from phone to music. Not a big deal but kind of annoying.

    Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

    Do not waste your money on this stereo. It lures people in with a lot of impressive features at a low price, but if you like functionality or quality then you will be very disappointed. The Bluetooth connection is poor, has lots of background pops and does not pick up where you left off when you get back in your car. In fact, it always defaults back to the radio each time. I have to go into Bluetooth mode, connect, wait for it to fail and connect again. After that, I get little control over my playlists. I still need to select lists from the music app on my phone. Plugging it into the stereo isn't much better. It cuts out randomly, and only chooses a few of my playlists to display as options. It only gives you 10 seconds in each screen to make a selection before defaulting back to the last screen. Sound quality is tinny, despite the eq. The interface experience is poor with some screens that look like they're incomplete afterthoughts. Overall, Axxera has a lot of work to do if they want to compete in the premium market. Simply loading it with a lot of features doesn't make it premium. The user experience so poor that I found myself just leaving it off when driving. It is being removed and returned and will be replaced by a brand that I know and trust. Given the price, my expectations were fairly low and yet I was still disappointed.

    Pros: Many features generally only found on high end units. Looks nice.

    Cons: Poor connectivity, poor interface, poor execution, poor sound quality, poor experience in general.

    Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

    very disappointed i got this for 2 things 1 camera and 2 bluetooth phone calls. so this is not good for phone calls because it doesn't show your phone contacts so if you want to make a phone call you will need to directly enter a phone number which is very ridiculous i have no clue what anyone's number is so i have to get the phone out to make a call and that is illegal in oregon . next it doesn't have a trigger wire to activate a camera so the only way to turn on the camera is by putting the car in reverse or you can hook up a toggle switch to activate the camera.

    Pros:

    Cons: Phone Calling

    buy this for your budget, not because it's a great unit. it is a great value. If you can go up to the $200 range, definitely go with the JVC. i bought both, trying to save a few bucks. the layout is not my favorite, the level of detail on the menus is not as deep, and most importantly the phone has no corded mic or appropriate controls. the b/g noise on a bluetooth call isn't able to be adjusted, and the mic is on the face of the unit, making it oddly far from your mouth. i don't hate it and it's not a bad unit, but i've wasted the extra $60 i would've spent on the JVC on stupider ( i know, grammar) purchases.

    Pros: probably the cheapest unit with all the capabilities it has

    Cons: -documentation / manual sucks -lack of phone noise controls -lack of mic

    I installed this unit in my car and I have to say I was a bit skeptical at the price also of the fact that it was a sister brand from Dual . I was and am still pleasantly surprised , for a low priced unit if you are looking for something that hooks up to your phone instantly and I mean the instant you get in your car , this is the unit for you !! This is an excellent radio for the money , you might have to navigate through your phone to hook up to different forms of audio files I.e. not iTunes but it still plays other forms flawlessly. My only complaint (if I really had one ) is the fact that the volume knob is a little small and it's a little tight being that it has a minor setback in my dash , although that could be just my install . Great product at a great price ! Thanks again Crutchfield and thank you Axxera ,you really hit a home run with this one ....

    I got this for a work van to replace the stock tape playing nonsense that came with the vehicle. This axxera does not disappoint. No it's not "high end" or anything but it's a great unit for a tight budget. Does everything it says it does, install is super easy, and of course Crutchfield gives you everything you need to install it. If it was damaged in some way I would def get this axxera again. And I would only go through Crutchfield to get it.

    Pros: Easy install, awesome unit, great price, fast delivery.

    Cons: Display could be just a little brighter but it's fine ultimately.

    Easy install with ALL of the needed accessories supplied by Crutchfield. I had a question on one portion of the accessory wiring and got the best tech support agent I've ever spoke with. I speak with many different companies tech support divisions on a daily basis with my line of work and Julia (I hope that was her name) was A++! The unit is very user friendly and my parents had no problem getting the hang of the controls.

    This is my second Axxera stereo of this exact model. I put in my wife's Odyssey and it has been great for us. Bluetooth is reliable and the hands free calling with buikt in mic is spot on. When it was time to put one in my 2012 Impreza, as far as bang for your buck I knew I would just do a second one of these!

    Pros: Ease of use Sound adjustments Bluetooth Built in mic

    So far I've been pleased. Unit has a great look and fits beautifully in my stock housing. Sounds far better than the factory unit. My only issue/question is that it does not turn off with the ignition switch....I followed the wiring to the t and it just stays on with the car off and key out until I manually turn it off. But for the price and ease of installment it's a small thing to deal with.

    Pros: Looks, sound, installment, just about the best bang for the money so far

    Cons: Stays on even with car off and keys out of the ignition

    The bluetooth app you have to use is ridiculous. It forces you to use their "iPlug" app and ruins the bluetooth auto-connect experience.

    Overall I really do like this product. The only issue I have is sometimes the volume knob works and sometimes it doesn't. I either have to use the touchscreen or use the remote.

    Great installation, as always, from Crutchfield. Only complaint is that the Master sheet didn't have all of the installation instructions and had to look at several different places to make it all come together, but still much easier than without (part of the install information was hidden in the owners manual, which would be the last place I looked for installation). Also, didn't know about the pink wire that connects to the parking brake to allow viewing while not driving before I had the dash all back together, so we can't watch the DVD even when parked without having to take it all apart again. Not a big deal but would have liked to have had that on the Master sheet or in the wiring instructions so I could have planned ahead. Didn't know this brand, but took a chance based on reviews and Crutchfield reputation, and so far not disappointed. Great features and great price for touch screen and great sound. Thank you Crutchfield!

    Pros: Great price and easy installation

    Cons: Need to put all of the install instructions in one place instead of having to look at multiple resources throughout.

    Excellent product for the money. Has most of the features of the higher priced items for way less money. Clear sound, easy setup for Bluetooth. The only ding i have with it is you have 3 different choices of background color but all three are basically the same color of blue and it is hard to read the screen with sunlight shining onto it. Other than that, it is an excellent radio, with USB port and MicroSD slot for playing your own music.

    Pros: USB MicroSD Slot Excellent Tuner

    Cons: Screen hard to read in sunlight

    I have a 2001 toyota camry. Bought this after the original radio died. I drive a lot so this is a need for me. Very simple installation. You have to use your old brackets from the factory radio but its only 4 screws. Taking the dash apart was no problem either, then its plug and play with the extra harness (worth the extra money to me). This unit has a lot of features, I only use the radio, cd, dvd, and blue tooth. All work pretty well, sometimes the touch screen is a little slow but that could be me not quite hitting the right spot. There are lots of controls. The DVD looks good on the small screen, with the movie sounds coming through the speakers, it's like a super small drive in movie! CDs sound good. Overall, I am happy with my purchase, I would buy it again. I hope this helps someone. Thanks!

    Pros: good for the money, DVD looks good

    I like my music loud! For an entry level double din radio the Axxera AV6118Bi is a great bargain. I was a bit hesitant going with this unit instead of the Pioneer but I like trying different products. As a car audiophile quality is essential. I am happy to say that this head unit works quite well with the Bose system in my 2005 Mazda 6s. For the front doors I put in the Sony XS-GS1621 6-1/2" and for the rear dors the Morel Maximo Ultra 502 Coax 5-1/4. The system still has the stock bose rear deck speaker and amp. I can barely turn this thing volume above 10. I am quite happy. Give this head unit a try :).

    Pros: Simple and effective Wakes up the aftermarket speakers Fun

    Cons: A little sluggish Lack of brand recognition

    Disappointing unit with annoying UI and no user's guide

    Timothy from Chesapeake, VA on 8/30/2018

    2002 Chevrolet Express

    Verified customer (What's this?)
    Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

    I am very disappointed in this purchase. To summarize, the user interface is one of the most annoying I have ever dealt with. Also, there is no user manual given or that I could find on the internet...seems they just didn't make one. So you have to guess at features. If I could go back, I would spend more money on quality. I took a chance and lost. The UI is especially annoying when interacting with bluetooth. When you connect your phone (a slow process), the unit switches to the radio every time. You then select in the menu bluetooth audio and the unit goes to the calling feature of the phone. You then must select bluetooth audio again. The whole process of trying to play music from your phone takes several minutes and far too many onscreen clicks while you are trying to drive. The volume also seems to lack in my system, which is stock, but the previous unit had much volume. For DVDs, I have to crank the volume to max just to get close to a normal volume. There is nothing in my opinion special enough about this unit to justify giving it any extra stars. Its faults far out way its nominal experience. Spend the extra money to get better quality: it will be worth it. This review in no way affects Crutchfield of course. As always, they had a great installation guide and available help, as well as got the right adapter to connect to my vehicle.

    Pros: Works in the most nominal ways possible

    Cons: -Terrible user interface -No user's guide -Low volume

    My daughter is about to turn 16 and we purchased her an older used car. The problem I had was the audio system was very user friendly and nothing was hands free. I went online, chatted with a Crutchfield professional, and in about 15 minutes had a complete audio system that suited our needs. There was nothing left out. They shipped me everything I needed to do a do it yourself install. My daughter now a a very nice quality system with simple to use controls, and hands free features for phone, audio, and navigation. The whole install was about an hour and a half, and I have zero car stereo experience. One new stereo with touch screen, and four speakers!!! Thanks Crutchfield

    Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

    Sounds is great, plays dvd's, added a back up camera and that works fine. The issues I have with this unit is that it's a cheap touchscreen and it's hard to press a preset without going into the settings or EQ menu, because it's located right below the presets on the screen. You also have to wait a few seconds before touching the screen again because it has a delay in the touch sensitivity. The volume knob is also tiny and has to be turned several times around to increase or decrease the volume. The built in bluetooth microphone doesn't work unless you talk directly into the screen of the radio from 6 inches away. I didn't realize that Axxera is a new name for Dual brand products. I guess they changed the name so people would start buying it again.

    Pros: Great sound, plays dvd's, back up camera input.

    Cons: Bluetooth microphone is terrible, volume knob small and hard to adjust, EQ and settings are too close to presets on the screen. Axxera is a cover up name for Dual.

    Eh I have mixed feelings, I m excited to gain Built in 6inch screen for Backup camera and Bluetooth for phone and radio controls. But i dont like not seeing the info of the songs on radio stations. Its definitely a technology upgrade but base model of the latest tech. Back up camera feature is great. I bought a camera from another site hardwire camera is the best .. I had wireless camera is not flawless design . However Crutchfield tech support is great and available, the documentation thats included with your order is insane and greatly appreciated. Plus the pandora premium for 3 months is the reason i stopped amazon music. Thank you Crutchfield

    Pros: Camera backup screen is great light and dark. Bluetooth Functions for Phone and Audio. DVD is good if ever i put monitors in back, kids have Ipads now so that is a moot point. Bluetooth quickly connects and i like the app for the phone to control the radio. Documentation they send on your equipment cannot be easily duplicated.

    Cons: Bluetooth i would like to download my phone book to it , it does not do that -Info data of songs when on radio stations it does not display that. SWC this interface is a work in progress, its not doing well with this radio. the buttons are all over the place. and programming should not be this difficult.

    Not bad for the price but a few annoying things about this unit. The worst thing is that it will not automatically reconnect to my phone when I restart the vehicle. If I shut it off while listening to Spotify on my phone, then restart, it defaults back to FM. Then I have to restart my app and song. Quite annoying. The second thing is that it mutes the radio when the backup camera is one. Not huge, but annoying none the less.

    Pros: Good sound for the price.

    Cons: BlueTooth functionality is a bit wonky. Won't reconnect to Spotify/Phone when restarting.

    I've put 4 Double Din touchscreen units in my all four of my vehicles (all through Crutchfield), and though this unit had the smallest screen, i think i may like it the best. It has less glare issues than the others, some of which is position in the vehicle, but when I try to compare, I think this one is great. It may also be that is has better off-axis viewing from the driver's position that the others. All in all, I would definitely buy another one of these units again. To be honest I avoided it before because I didn't really know much about the company/name, so I went with the names I knew. Who knew. :)

    I love this head unit. You get a lot for what you pay for. My only complaint is that it takes a decently long time for the screen to load when you plug you phone/iPod into the USB connection to listen to music etc.. Also, if you don't have a rear view camera connected to the head until, when put the vehicle in reverse, it shuts the head unit off as it would if a camera is installed. Other than that, I love it. Great purchase and easy to install.

    Pros: Easy to install, all the features you could possibly need.

    Cons: Long time to load USB connection, while in reverse the head unit shuts off as if there is a back up camera connected.

    Great stereo for the money, everything works as it should. Have not bought a back up camera yet. Installation in my 2006 toyota tundra took about an hour and a half. There is no comparison to my old factory setup.

    When I first turn on the radio and press Bluetooth audio it connects to my phone then defaults to the FM radio. Every time. It is really annoying. The unit runs slow and the touch screen didn't always work right. I wish I would have spent a little more money for a better unit. Lots of small annoying things that add up quick

    Pros: DVD player looks decent.

    Cons: Slow UI, clunky UI, touch screen is bad, settings are set up weirded and all over the place. System turns on connects to Bluetooth then reboots and defaults of FM radio. Long bootup time. ECT...

    2003 Toyota Tundra

    Verified customer (What's this?)
    Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

    The USB connection was poor on the first unit that arrived. Sounded like a skipping cd or record. Other than that functioned as advertised. The time to switch on the reverse camera was frustrating. I think crutchfield said it was 1.5 seconds - which is probably accurate but is too long. Picture is clear and sound is great. It's hard to finess the equalizer- I wish it had incremental touch controls for fine adjustments. It takes FOREVER to switch to iPod mode. The reflection on the screen makes it hard to see the screen in the daylight. Other than those picky details it's a solid system at a great price.

    Pros: Good screen clarity and image Affordable Price Easy Install Lots of inputs

    Cons: Screen glare Lacks fine adjustment on equalizer iPod input change time Backup camera input switching time Quality consistency (usb input not good on my first recieved unit)

    Crutchfield response on 5/22/2018
    Grant contacted our Customer Support team and exchanged for another receiver. Purchases from Crutchfield can be returned or exchanged within 60 days.

    Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

    Install was easy as it should be in my Ford Fusion 08. It's been in there about a month. Sound quality is good and no white noise/hissing/static. DVDs play well too. The only 2 reasons I give it 4 stars are: 1. Volume button - it's not sensitive enough. Being so small it's not easy to guide with one fingertip, it takes a few turns to get to the volume I'm looking for, and it's easy to overshoot the volume into high after that. 2. The unit doesn't automatically load Bluetooth as my previous ones did. It goes to radio by default. I have to start my Spotify app, select my Bluetooth audio. Even after I select Bluetooth audio it loads to the phone menu of the unit, pretty annoying. Overall, it's a great product. Would recommend for such a low price.

    Pros: Easy install. Looks great, 5 star audio quality.

    Cons: Small and "tight" volume control. Not very intuitive with Bluetooth audio.

    Good power and clean sound. The iPod/iPhone control is poor. Takes nearly 5 whole minutes for the device to load when usb connected and half of the library appears to be missing. Easy installation is a plus but nevertheless I am considering spending a little more on a better unit.

    Great radio! I was very skeptical due to the price of this head unit, but it has far exceeded my expectations! Bluetooth, backup camera, and dvd work very well. It does have its little quarks like muting the Bluetooth when a second call comes in. But all in all great unit for the price.

    For what it is it's pretty great. A cheap DVD stereo. Only complaint (albeit a major one), is the volume difference when switching from DVD to radio or anything else. Volume level 14 is LOUD for the radio and anything below full blast while watching a DVD is hard to hear. Other than that I'm happy with it.

    Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

    The primary purpose of replacing the existing AIWA mp3 CD AM/FM stereo I bought from Crutchfield years ago was to bring bluetooth into my 2003 Nissan Altima. Was seriously considering the Panasonic MVH-200EX, but I didn't want to run a mic and USB connection from the back of the unit to the dash. I liked that the Axxera AV6118Bi has a built-in front mic, and that the USB, AUX and SD connections are in front. I took a 1/2 star off because the radio reception has a little bit more of static than the AIWA that I took out. But streaming music sounds awesome through this unit. Glad I made the purchase.

    Verified customer (What's this?)
    Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

    I give this 5 stars for being a great radio for the price. It starts up quick, has plenty of power, and does everything i need it to do. It's obviously not quite the same feel as some of the more expensive set ups i've installed but for the price, I don't think you can get anything else that comes even close. The only bad thing that happened through this experience was the radio came in damaged originally. I believe it was a shipping issue because it looked ok but didn't work. Crutchfield helped troubleshoot to ensure it wasn't an install error, and then sent me a new one with no fuss. Good guys over there. Cheers!

    Pros: Cheap, Loads of features, Built in Mic, Plenty of Power.

    Cons: First unit came in with issues, probably a shipping issue though.

No biggie . Has a great equalizer setting,can adjust just about anything , and has a very good picture quality when playing DVDs, it's like watching it at home on my flat screen. Besides the size of course. I have no bad things to say about this product . It does what I wanted it for . It was everything I was looking for . Not a bad price either

    This is a great upgrade from the factory stereo. The sound quality is great. I haven't had much time to play around with it but the only thing that has given me some concern is the bluetooth link. I linked my phone and the screen and radio kept restarting. I un paired it and it has been fine ever since. I will try it again when I have some time to mess with it. Everything else works like a champ. I love the ability to put all my music on a mini SD card and I can plug the card right into the unit.

    Pros: Functional, Mini SD card slot, bright screen, remote

    Cons: Not sure how well the Bluetooth works.

    This an excellent budget replacement to a factory head unit. The wiring harness fit right on to the wires for my factory system. It sounds great. Only thing is that if you want to watch DVDs you must hook up the parking wire or install a bypass in order to watch. I wish the phone function had a way to store numbers as when you receive a call it puts the number on the screen and not the contact name that is in your phone. Instructions are very vague so you will have to do some research to figure out all of the bells and whistles.

    Pros: Great sound-great features-eq is nice to have. Plenty of functionality.

    Install was quick and painless. It sounds good but here are the issues I have experienced with this unit. 1) It likes to go to the radio when you start up, which is annoying to me. 2) the blue tooth connection is weak, that it is I get a pop and a glitch from time to time. 3) The preset equalizer settings leave much to be desired, sounds like someone singing into a tin can. lastly, 4) my dash is curved and the unit isn't, but that's minor. But all in all, its not all that bad of a unit.

    Pros: Easy install and sounds great. Has lots of functions

    Cons: 1. Blue tooth connection is irksome. 2. Likes to go to radio first instead of where you were. 3. Preset equalizer settings not very robust.

    I had returned a JVC head unit after it had started acting up after a month. I got this unit and holy "bleep" it was night and day difference. Very user friendly and the sound was absolutely amazing coming from the stock speakers in my 2012 F150 STX. Bluetooth is a breeze and the built in microphone is very good considering any of the past head units I bought with built in mics were poor at best. I cannot say enough good things about this radio. Pleasantly surprised and pleased for such a low priced unit. It won't tell you the call letters or info for radio stations but who cares...you know what station you're on lol

    Was not familiar with this brand. Took a chance on trying it and I'm glad I did. Very impressed with this head unit. Lots of functions for the price. Only downfall was that the volume from CD to DVD changes dramatically without touching the volume. Not sure if it's something I can adjust in settings? If not this was the only issue I had with this product. I would recommend this purchase.

    This is a great radio. I put it in a 07 jeep wrangler. Had to do some minor things to get it to fit. The sound and ease of use is awesome.

    Pros: Great sound. Love the touch screen and all the features.

    Cons: Usb drive is by the volume so you have to be careful when you turn it up or down.

    Awesome factory replacement with bonus perks!

    I bought this because it is the PERFECT fit in every way for my 2004 Silverado HD. No cutting under the dash, with the Crutchfield harness it retains ALL of the truck's original stereo functions! Steering wheel controls, Bose adaptable with my factory sub and system, door chime and EVEN rear stereo controls! I paid the little extra for Crutchfield to do the wiring on the harness and it was SO worth it! All I did was pull the old unit out and plug the new one in. I was finished in 15 minutes! Of course I have been buying from Crutchfield for 30 plus years and doing installs free for all my friends and relatives, but even a novice can get this done in less than a half hour. The sound quality is AMAZING! It made the factory Bose headset sound like junk and the onboard EQ and sub crossovers give me MUCH needed bass! The touchscreen functions are easy to figure out and all the perks this has are amazing! I can use it to talk hands free on my phone, listen to see, sub or even st card. The only issues I have are with the back up camera. My truck doesn't have one and I have the settings for camera off, but when in reverse it still cuts all sound and switches to a blank screen. Also, when I tried a DVD and forgot to set the parking brake the thing locked me out, but stayed powered on and would not eject or do any other functions. I had to pull the head unit out and remove the power source to reset it. I tried contacting Jensen/dual but have not heard back from them yet.

    Pros: Sounds better than factory Bose head unit, great bass and equalizer control. So many functions it will make you per yourself!

    Cons: Poor instruction manual. Cannot reach manufacturer,

    I've only had it installed a few days and am still learning the features. The Axxera unit has exceeded my highest expectations

    Pros: Shows album covers; Artist Name; Album Name and Song Title - everything I wanted. It also switches very quickly from random mode to next song mode when I want to listen to and entire album.

    Cons: None so far

    Nice Unit But beware of Video Viewing

    Adam from Charlotte, NC on 3/18/2018

    Nice head unit for the price. Plenty of functions and a lot better than the original. I would have rated five stars but I've been having some video issues. Come to find out, after I installed it I read that the unit will not play videos while the vehicle is moving. I guess it's some type of safety feature. If you want to view the video, you have to hardwired the pink wire into the braking unit of the truck. I wish I would have read that ahead of time and at least been given some information on how to go about doing that. There's not point in buying a DVD unit if my kids not going to be able to watch it while we're driving down the road on trips. Besides that though, if you're looking for something inexpensive with some bells and whistles, you can't go wrong with this.

    Pros: Nice display Easy to Install Blue Tooth

    Cons: Video Unit Functionality

    I have this unit installed in a trailer. It recently failed (has power but display won't light up). I'd like to replace it, but would like to upgrade if possible. Is there a unit that will directly interchange that's considered a higher quality?

    Hi Tim! Thanks for your question. Unfortunately with a stereo replacement, you're probably going to have to do some re-wiring. I wish we could get away with that not being the case, but due to pin configurations on the stereo, and going to a different manufacturer, that likely won't be a possibility. For a nice little upgrade from the Axxera I recommend checking out the JVC KW-V250BT. DVD, Bluetooth, and USB charging are at the top of the features list. Feel free to reach out to one of our Advisors, Tim! We'll be happy to help you find what will work best for you! You can chat with us online, or by phone at 1-800-324-9695.

    This unit has a 6 channel preamp outputs. The power of your amp/amps is not relevant. They need to have preamp level inputs. The question is whether you and you cars electrical system can handle it. This would clearly be only your subwoofer amp and you surely need another amp for you speakers. Minimum 0 ga for just his amp. Most likely you will need a cap.

    I had the same issue with my unit one time. I had to pull the fuse from the fuse box to get it to turn off. I left it out for about 5 minutes and then put the fuse back in. I haven't had that problem again.

    It does not come with an antenna, but there's a jack to plug in your existing/current car antenna. I simply unplugged the antenna from the old deck and plugged it into the Axxera receiver.

    Im not sure about the question but you can plug your existing antenna cord into this radio . Hope this helps, I am very pleased with it . Had it in over a year with no problems .

    The unit uses an external antenna. But reception is very poor.

    No, unfortunately you will have to purchase a separate part to connect to the back of the stereo to get the steering wheel controls to work. Any aftermarket stereo you install will require the same part in order to get those controls to work.

    Yes you can connect an amp to it. The sound is great with out it out of the box but I am sure the sound would be incredible with an amp.
