Not a professional radio installer. Once l had all the products ready to install, things went together pretty well .Had to make one phone call to one of your specialist on connection of one wire . Thanks Ken

Pros: Needed all the hardware for things to workout

Cons: Lost with just the wiring that comes with the radio.Had to order the wiring harness and mounting bracket.

Great Radio, Update your Firmware!

Matthew from Roswell, GA on 3/19/2020

2010 Nissan Xterra

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

IMPORTANT!! - A Firmware Update is now available on the Axxera website! Installed in a 2010 Nissan Xterra. Fit perfect with the Crutchfield mounting frame around it. (The wiring harness service was great, plug-and-play) I was worried at first, as the iPlug add-in thing kept popping up every time I went to Bluetooth (many reviews about that here), but the Support at Crutchfield reminded me to check firmware, and there is an update. (must have been posted in the last few months, since the posts below said there was none) It fixed all the glitches regarding that. Outside of that, sound is very good. Bluetooth has a minor skip about once per two songs for me. Almost negligible... If I had a complaint it is the volume knob is small, and it is very close to the dashboard surround. Makes it a little tricky to change volume. This is specific to my car though. The onscreen volume is tricky, if you don't press right on it, you miss it, and got to start again. Its not world-class, but its a really good unit for the money, IMO. I would recommend this unit, I have another Axxera, and it is great, as well.

Pros: Sound and options

Cons: Volume knob is fragile and tiny

This radio was relatively easy to install, I combined it with 4 MTX terminator 6 and a 300 watt subwoofer. Incredible sound! I also installed a HD backup camera and it works great. This radio, for the price is fantastic, tons of cool features, equalizer, Bluetooth, CD/DVD player and more. I strongly recommended!

Pros: Easy install with the help of the wiring harness and instructions.

Cons: None so far.

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

The radio has a whirring sound because the microphone is always on and listening. The mic picks up the engine purr and plays it in the background of songs and while you are taking calls. The first one i revived did not work properly and amplified the sound. The disc drive did not work. The replacement has worked so far aside from the engine sound being amplified through the speakers while driving. The pitch of the sound escalates and de escalated as the engine does. It is not a pleasant sound. There is no option to turn the microphone off or alternatively connect. a external microphone.

Pros: Easy to Install

Cons: Mic is always listening

I had this radio for about a year and it was working great! After this year it's been a completely different story. It has completely stopped working with my backup camera. After this, it would randomly turn black and stop working. IM not saying that it is complete garbage but the quality of the radio is not very high.

Pros: supper affordable has a lot of features for the price.

Cons: stoped working completely after a year

Worst deck I've owned.

Chris from Westlake, La on 1/25/2020

2013 Ford F-250 Super Duty

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

This deck has been terrible. Worst one I've owned. Volume turns on at a default 13 and I have to constantly turn it up. That can be overlooked somewhat.. The real issue is the random power loss and resetting of everything. I've pulled the deck twice and make sure my solder connections were perfect. I solder everything. Put back in my stock radio and ran that for weeks to see if it was my truck. It's not. If I could afford it I'd throw it in the road and run over it and by a pioneer like I should have. First non pioneer deck I have owned. Shame on me for stepping out. Skip this deck.

Pros: Camera works.

Cons: Volume defaults at 13 on startup. Can't change it. Deck loses its memory an restarts at random. Even while driving. I lose ALL my presets and settings.

Decent...Not Great

Crutchfield customer from Bloomington, IN on 1/22/2020

2004 Chevrolet Avalanche

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

The head unit itself is decent. Installation required no additional modifications. Wiring was a bit tricky as not all of the wire colors matched up exactly. The additional unit to maintain SWC was much easier to wire up than previous models I've owned. Touchscreen works well and features are good. Bluetooth connection was not an issue. I connected the wires on the back for a back up camera that I haven't yet installed. It goes to the blue screen when in reverse even though there's no camera. I can't turn this feature off. There's no way to change the brightness. Not having variable color lighting was not an issue for me, but dimming capabilities would have been nice. Every time you start the vehicle, the HU tries to connect to the Axxerra iPlug app. I don't use the app and, again, no way to turn this feature off. The app is pretty pointless considering it come with a remote anyway. FM radio reception is not as good as OEM which is the exact opposite of every other HU I've purchased. Would I buy this HU again, maybe. I might spend another $20 and get a JVC or other model without the app delays.

Pros: Touchscreen, Bluetooth connection good, sound quality decent

Cons: Axxerra iPlug app annoying, No dimmer or variable light option, FM radio reception just okay.

OK, but not good enough for SWC

Crutchfield customer from Cape Coral, FL on 1/12/2020

2012 Chrysler Town and Country

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

The installation in a 2012 T&C was difficult since the Crutchfield instructions didn't work for this vehicle. After some phone discussion with Crutchfield support (they finally acreed on their missleading) I took the risk and cut the opening in the sub-dash to fit a double din head and it worked. Just hope that Crutchfield will extend their instructions with my information. After this the following installation was easy using the recommended and ordered parts (PAC RP4-CH11, Metra dash kit). The head unit works ok for radio and bluethooth but errors when using the phone button on SWC by cuting bluethooth off. The only way to bring it back is by resetting and loosing all your presets. So I decided to return the unit.

Pros:

Cons: SWC not working on al buttons

Crutchfield customer from Belleville, IL on 1/1/2020

2006 Buick Lucerne

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

Got this for Christmas and installed it in my 2006 Buick Lucerne. The radio has a lot of great features you'd only find on higher end units. HOWEVER, it takes AT LEAST 5 minutes for the thing to power on. I've tried rewiring it 3 different times, just to make sure everything was correct. It still takes several minutes for it to power on. You'd think it would power on with the car itself, but nope. I've searched all over the internet trying to fix this problem, but I have yet to find a solution. If someone from Axxera or Crutchfield could get ahold of me and tell me why my unit takes so long to power on, it would be very appreciated. As for the radio itself, I use it solely for Bluetooth. When the unit does eventually power on, it takes another couple minutes to even connect to my phone. Once it turns on, the stereo defaults itself to the radio, regardless of where you left it the last time. So I have to click the home button, then the Bluetooth button, THEN it decides it needs to load the Axxera iPlug app, which I don't have. Once it decides to load the app, it goes right back to the radio and it's back to square one. Once my phone is connected, the Bluetooth quality is terrible. There are constant audible pops in the sound. The touch screen isn't responsive half the time. It's all poorly executed. I do not recommend this stereo and I highly recommend you look elsewhere. They lure you in with a lot of cool features at a low price, but it's only going to cause yo

Pros: * Lots of high end features on a low budget stereo

Cons: * It does not recognize that my car has powered on * It takes 5+ minutes for it to load the OS and power on * The interface is terrible * Constant popping during Bluetooth connection

So this is a pretty good Double DIN unit for the price. I just installed it and its for my daughter so I really havent dug into this. The first and really only problem I have is the touch screen. It does not respond really well to touch. Sometimes you need to hit it twice or little hard. but I guess this is what I should expect from a unit at this price. Like I said, other than that, so far it seams great and have no real complaints. If you are trying to save money and want a touch screen double din unit... this is the one for sure.

Pros: Easy to use and intuitive. Didnt even need to read the manual to connect my phone or find my way around the unit

Cons: Touch screen is not a responsive as I'd like

all in all its a great radio for the money, the only thing I would change is when you receive a call and your on a call the other person stops hearing you like you put the phone on mute so they wind up hanging up and if you do answer the other call they cannot hear you either.

Pros: Great radio for the price

Cons: When your on a call and another call is coming in its mutes your phone so the person thinks you hung up.

Great radio. Easy to use and sound is great. I like the micro SD card slot. I filled up a 64gig card with all my music and I'm good to go. My son likes the Bluetooth also. He hooked up to it in seconds.

Pros:

Cons: Only con I have is the color is not changeable. My interior is red and the radio is blue. For the price I can live with it.

Poor controls, USB cover fell of the first day I installed it. Screen keeps getting stuck. Clock can not be seen unless you have the radio on. It doesn't retain some sound settings after being turned off like the equalizer settings and you have to set them every time you drive.

Nothing but headaches at the end of the day...

Steve from Topeka, KS on 11/16/2019

2002 GMC Envoy

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

I have had this unit for a little over 6 months. The install went smoothly. Crutchfield's install parts were priced well and exactly what I needed. Unfortunately, the unit has incredibly annoying - and sometimes dangerous - glitches in its software/firmware. The unit will restart itself - for reasons I still have no idea - every time the car has turned on. It boots, appears to be ready to operate as normal, then restarts and boots again. It only happened a few times in the first few months, but now the unit will shut down and when it comes on all the presets and connected devices have been lost. In the last two months I have counted this happening five times. It's pretty awful. You have to add your phone back but I'm not even setting the presets on the radio anymore because I know they'll do it again. These lead me to the most frustrating thing of all. There is no communication with the company. Axxera has a firmware page but there are no firmware updates for this unit. It seems like a quality engineering team could solve the problems pretty easily with this receiver but they are nowhere to be found. I've given up trying to contact them. This unit is fixing a few glitches away from being exactly what I wanted. It's very frustrating. I honestly don't see why a place like Crutchfield would be selling it. When I started having the problems I researched them and basically every unit is afflicted. It's not a defect.

Pros: Factory-install "fit" Nice, responsive screen

Cons: -Unit restarts itself EVERY time after car is turned on, whether you are sitting there, in reverse with your backup cam functioning...it's going to restart itself -Unit often 3x/month or more factory resets itself, erases all presets and bluetooth devices -No way to default to anything except "Radio" input - Absolutely ZERO communication with the manufacturer regarding issues, firmware updates. Have emailed them several times. No luck at all

Love these units. This is my second Axxera, the first went in my 2003 E450 box van. the touch sceen works awesome and super easy to adjust, EQ, Fade, balance. I set both of the units up without looking at the owners manual. its that user friendly. The bluetooth is so so. but I use an earbud anyway. Both units were the lower end units with backup and av inputs. Just the second one was purchased a year or so later. The one thing I miss on the new one is not having the mute on the home screen. But I Love this unit and I'm basicaly a Kenwood person. I bought this for our 2003 ford exploder It has almost 300,000 miles on it. It still runs great but the stereo didn't make it. And it's a beautiful addition to the dash. If I loose another stereo in any other rigs I own. I WILL order an Axxera

Pros: Super easy to use Awesome display Excellent seperation to speakers

Cons: Could have a better mic in the bluetooth

Overall, for the price it's a great stereo. The bluetooth volume is a little low, but it connects well - and the system starts up right away. The only complaint I have (which I haven't fully investigated) is that every time I put my truck in reverse I get a blue screen as though it's trying to show a back up camera - of which I don't have. I'd like to be able to shut off this functionality.

Pros: Easy Install, bluetooth, DVD receiver, touchscreen

Cons: Backup camera functionality

Does everything I was looking for. Brought an older car up to modern standards with BT and other inputs. Touch Screen works fine if a bit unsensitive. Buttons and volume knob is pretty small but was able to retain steering wheel controls so they would be used infrequently. It was not able to fully pair with my android phone for music audio but I am selling the car so have not investigated further.

I was a little concerned with the radio working with the Chrysler radio AMP. I read the instruction and wired the harness on the dining room table. I installed the trim and radio with no problems at all. Sounds good, but I think my grandson needs to save up for new speakers. All in, it's a straightforward and easy install for a good radio. It's a 2006 Chrysler 300 and the install looks like factory.

Pros: easy install, nice price for a college student.

Cons: Android Auto would be nice, but my grandson bought what he could afford.

I can not recommend the Axxera AV6118Bi

Crutchfield customer from Louisville, CO on 9/22/2019

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

To be fair there are a few things the Axxera AV6118Bi does well, but for what it can't do I think 2 stars is fair. If I can locate the original box I will try to return it ASAP. I wired it into my existing (2009 MDX non-Navigation) preamp and it sounds great. The MicroSD card feature, backup camera, and Apple interface work great as well. I had no trouble getting the the ASWC-1 steering wheel controller to work once I told it the unit was a Pioneer. However it fails dismally in two features that I would have thought any audio company would be able to get right - radio reception and bluetooth connectivity. The radio reception is so bad I disassembled my dash twice to confirm the 120 40HD10 Antenna Adaptor had not fallen out. Some stations trickle in but the ones I listen to, and that every other car we own can pick up loud and clear, are not auto-detected and are barley audible when dialed in manually. The Bluetooth is horrible. In a dozen trips I could only connect a Pixel 3 and an Apple 5 one time, and the when I got back in the car the unit had forgotten both phones and refused to reconnect with either. Since it only supports Apple over the USB port (which it does just fine) half of our household is effectively locked out of the unit. An app is offered for Android but that doesn't seem to make a difference. If you are a pure Apple household and radio isn't important then this is a decent buy, but for a daily driver I can not recommend the Axxera AV6. UPDATED 9/23/19: In all fairness I should rate the unit 4 stars. The Bluetooth is still clunky but better with the Android app they supply. I thought about returning it and was looking at other units in the price range but none get 5 stars. Also I have decided the microSD card feature is pretty great now that I have 250 CD's worth of music available in the car.

Pros: SD card, DVD, backup camera all work as expected.

Cons: Bluetooth and radio reception almost nonexistent.

For the money, you can't beat this radio. Installation of this radio was straight forward and simple.

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.

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.

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.

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.

This Stereo dosent fit a 2003 Ford F250 without a lot of modifying of the dash hole, lot of filing and had to remove two upper dash screws to get it just to go into stock location.

Pros: Great Stereo

Cons: Not a good fit in stock location without modifying

Quick Install and perfect fit with all the discounted installations parts. Looks clean and a lot of features. So far just used the remote and Bluetooth. Will try a dvd movie in there soon. It's inexpensive but doesn't look cheap. Several compliments so far.

Pros: Price, Easy Installation, Several Features, Remote, or control with Smartphone App

Don't do This to Yourself

2006 Ford F-150

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.

Its not a top of the line unit, but I knew that, and didn't want to spend the extra money. For what it is, its well worth the money. 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

Christian from Dahlonega, GA on 5/5/2019

2003 Toyota Sequoia

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

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.

2004 GMC Yukon XL Denali

Verified customer (What's this?)
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.

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.

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

Everything works great as expected, however, the chimes for the vehicle operations is annoying and not what I thought it would be. Not delivered through the speakers, its delivered from a small box behind the stereo. Cheesy sounding... and the instructions on install were vague. Still it only took less then 1 hour to do.

Pros: Price What it is meant for Sound

Cons: Factory warning chimes Install instructions

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 ....

Pros: Great quality and an affordable price .

Cons: None

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.

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. There is another 1 star review very similar to this, so it's not just me. I contacted their support, and while their replies were prompt, they could not help.

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.

My wife hopped in the car and listened to the music-"OMG" was her exclamation. Using the factory speakers the sound is head and tails above the factory unit. It is simply amazing.

Pros: Fantastic sound. Intuitive controls.

Cons:

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.

Pros: Easy intallation, looks great and sounds great!

Cons: None yet.

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...

Takes a while to switch inputs

Grant from Eagle Mtn, UT on 5/22/2018

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)

Grant contacted our Customer Support team and exchanged for another receiver. Purchases from Crutchfield can be returned or exchanged within 60 days.

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

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.

Pros: Easy install, clean sound, and good power.

Cons: Apple products interact kinda quirky

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.

Pros: Everything

Cons: Bluetooth hiccup from time to time.

Solid radio for a very good price. I would buy this unit again. Installed a back up camera and that function works great too.

Pros: Price, user interface

Cons: Some of the programming is basic, for example the phone functionality doesn't allow you to import contacts (at least that I've found), you can't add your own personal background, etc....
