iRV iRV6500BT reviews
If there was a way to put a minus sign in front of the stars I would. It is a terrible unit. I didn't even have it a year when the cd player crapped out. Trying to find a Video format that the machine is "happy" to play has been an exercise in futility. I would never recommend this equipment to anyone. Stick to a reliable brand.

I received the iRV6500BT and installed it in my travel trailer to upgrade the old cassette / stereo system. Installation was fairly simple however once powered up the unit would not switch modes between tuner, disc, usb, sd, digi-port, bt play, aux in, and av in as the instruction manual calls for. It would only select following modes: tuner, iPod, BTplay, aux in, and av in then repeat the same sources. With assistance from Crutchfield tech support for an hour, we tried everything that we could to get a disc to play. Afterwards I tried the Bluetooth and paired to my iPhone, which worked fine. The sound functions and remote unit all appeared to work well. The following day I received a call from tech support, and he had corresponded with iRV, who indicated the unit was defective. I get to wait another week now for a new unit to be shipped....by the way, this was a discount dollar off 'open box' unit, and I specifically asked before ordering, what that meant in terms of quality as there were no indications that it had been installed or used upon receipt. Will I ever order something 'open box' again? NOT
